Q. How long does it take to develop an app?

On average, it takes about 3 to 9 months to develop an app. You can outsource the development to freelance or do it yourself. The time depends on the complexities of your ideal app. If it has more functions and detailed graphics, it will take you longer as compare to an app that is simple with essential functions.

Q. What is the ideal size of an app?

It differs from platform to platform. On an Android platform, users’ preferred app size is 15MB, while for on the iOS platform, people prefer apps at a maximum size of 38MB.

Q. Should I keep my app free or paid? Or somewhere in between?

For your app to succeed, the basic features should be free initially. You can keep certain eye-catching features paid; that way, you will be able to grab the attention of the users and the interested ones can pay you in exchange for using those striking features.

Q. What platforms should I choose? iOS or Android?

It completely depends on your app, the money you wish to spend on publishing, and your preferences. We suggest you do thorough market research before you choose a platform. If your app is preferable by iOS users, use it to your advantage. This will help you during coding as certain apps are developed, keeping the platform in mind.

Q. What is the average cost associated with publishing your app on the App Store/Play Store?

Apple App Store is quite expensive as compared to Google Play Store. An iOS app can cost you up to 7.5K rupees yearly to publish your app and the transaction fee is 15%.
