Create a Mobile App in UAE

Most entrepreneurs that want to develop a mobile Application have the same question.

“I want to develop a Mobile Application for my Business, but how much will it cost me? How long will it take? “

These questions are difficult to answer as there are many factors. It is like asking, “I want to build a house, how much? how long?”

Well, it depends… how big is your house? If the design is standard or non standard? Complex? Simple? How many floors? How many rooms?

The more specific and detailed your requirements are, the easier it is to get a clear quotation on time and cost.

Keep in mind that the following requirements and features are very important to get a clear quotation from any Mobile Application Development Company:

  • Multi Profile Users
  • Integrate API
  • Live Data
  • Integration with Web Application
  • Single or multi Platforms IOS and Android
  • Geolocation
  • Payment Gateway
  • Dashboards, Reporting
  • Live Chat

Now… enough of this and let’s move on to the next exciting topic, time.

Time to Develop a Mobile App:

The time can vary based on the complexity of the Mobile Application. The more complex, the more … well you can guess where this is heading. A Mobile Application can take anywhere from 2 to 6 months to develop.

For a normal complexity Mobile Application, it will take on average 3 months.

  • Simple Complexity – 1 to 3 Months
  • Medium Complexity – 3 to 6 Months
  • Very Complex – 6 to 9 Months

This will also vary based on how many developers you have to develop the Mobile Application. More available resources will help reduce the time it takes. Also having the right workforce and balance with Frontend and Backend Developers will help to develop faster instead of having one full stack developer.

Now, let’s talk about the mystery part, the cost !

Cost of a Mobile App:

Again the cost will vary based on your requirements. Keep in mind the analogy of building a house, it will be the same here. The more complex your house is the more costly it will be. But there are a few takeaways here.

  1. What is your deadline to develop the Mobile App?
    • If you do not have a short deadline, then it is best to have less developers to develop the Mobile App. You will be able to save some cost here.
    • If you have a short deadline, then have at least 2 developers to reduce the time. (1 Frontend Developer, 1 Backend Developer). You can build on this baseline and add more workforce.
  2. Do you need all the features in the first version?
    • If you develop all the features in the first version you will get the following:
      • Users will get bored in the long run as the Mobile Application won’t change often and won’t show improvement in the features.
      • You will face more bugs in the launch, and therefore it is better to go with a Beta Version with the main features and build up from there.
    • This will allow you to save time and cost. Furthermore, you can test the market and get your ROI faster.
  3. Do you need to make your Mobile Application Multi Platform? (IOS and Android)
    • Develop on one platform and release it. This will save you time and money. It will be faster to develop, fix the bugs faster and get some revenue to finance the development for the other platform.

Again keep in mind that if the first version of your Mobile Application is simple, then it will be faster and less costly. Getting a MVP (Minimum Viable Product) is crucial to test the market and to build up on it in terms of features after the feedback of your clients / users. But this choice depends on what your budget, vision and strategy are.

In terms of cost for the Mobile Application:

  • Simple Complexity – range from 10,000 to 25,000 AED
  • Medium Complexity – range from 25,000 to 50,000 AED
  • Very Complex – range from 50,000 to 250,000 AED and above.
