Mobile App Development Cost in Dubai
Mobile applications have proved to be an important asset in any firm as it has become a very productive tool in increasing the business in terms of marketing, usability, and efficiency.
Technically, Mobile Apps are of three types :
1) Native Applications
2) Progressive Web Applications
3) Hybrid Applications
In the Smartphone world, there are two players - Android and IOS, Android is the open-source operating system developed by Google and IOS is the operating system developed by Apple. Almost all the applications in the world are powered by these two. Even Though Android and IOS are rich in features and functionalities, their backend is completely different. These are developed in either Swift/Objective — C for iOS Apps or Java when developing an app for Android. Native Mobile App means, you get an app that is responsive to the Google operating system and uses, interacts with the in-built device features like Camera, Proximity sensors, GPS, etc. The ultimate reason to choose Native app is, it makes sure that the public you are targeting gets an app that has a very low learning curve and offers them an experience that is highly instinctive.
Basically, we divide Native Apps into three types based on its development complexity and project requirements :
1) Tier 1 (Low Complexity) :
These are the kinds of applications that are easy to develop and need less hardware requirements and optimizations. These are mostly informational applications, booking applications, e-book reader, etc. These applications are normally a part of another, bigger application/website. These kinds of Tier 1 Applications can be developed in approximately 4 weeks and generally costs around AED 25,000 to AED 35,000, the time frame and cost will vary according to the client's exact requirements.
2) Tier 2 (Medium Complexity) :
These are the kinds of applications which doesn't need much hardware requirements but are programmatically complex and contain so many variables that are dependent on each other, these applications may also require payment gateway integrations, subscriptions, User Modules, etc . These are mostly Service booking Applications, Fitness Tracking Apps, etc. These kinds of Tier 2 Applications can be developed in approximately 6 weeks to 8 weeks and generally costs around AED 35,000 to AED 50,000, the time frame and cost will vary according to the client's exact requirements.
3) Tier 3 (High Complexity) :
These are the kinds of applications that require extensive use of Hardware and also programmatically very complex. Hardware requirements include tracking location whenever you turn on the app, camera use, audio, sensors, etc. These applications require extensive Research and Development and require proper algorithm and logical planning for many variables. Tier 3 Applications include Taxi booking application - which has 2 applications - one for the driver and one for the customer, Food Delivery Application, Parcel or Courier delivery applications, etc. These kinds of complex Tier 3 Applications can be developed in approximately 8 weeks to 12 weeks and generally costs around AED 50,000 to AED 80,000, the time frame and cost will vary according to the client's exact requirements.
Progressive Web Applications
A Final Estimate of Mobile App Development Cost:
Now that you are aware of the factors that are taken into consideration when determining the cost of mobile app development, here is a rough estimate of the costs associated with each of the mobile app type as discussed above.
For Native app development platform, the apps are distinguished among 3 tiers and the price varies from AED 25,000 to AED 80,000. For Hybrid app development platform, the price varies from AED 20,000 to AED 40,000 and For Progressive app development platform, the price varies from AED 20,000 to AED 30,000.
And we also see that
1) We can Choose the Native application development platform if the performance is the ultimate target and if it is essential to use the device’s hardware peripherals.
2) We can Choose the Hybrid application development platform if the time is limited and if code reusability is important.
3) We can Choose the Progressive Web Application development platform if the requirement is a website and a similar feature in a mobile app and if it has less hardware usage and if the time is limited.
