So you have an idea, you want to build an application for Android, and you are now trying to find out how much it is going to cost to develop such an application. Developing an app is like buying a custom made BMW car, you get what you pay for. You want to build a high performance, quality app with mind blowing graphics, you have to pay very high price for it. But if you just want to build an app with some basic functionality, it won’t cost you much. The cost of developing an Android app may vary from $500 to $50000 depending upon functionalities.

If you are thinking of app which has some basic functionality it will cost you almost same at everywhere. Location wise cost may vary, but that won’t be much. In USA the cost for developing an app is higher than offshore places like India or china. However you get more clean code, less bug and your developer will understand your requirement better in USA. So in a word, you pay higher price for better code.

Sometimes you may want to build an application which will require a new way of thinking, newer logic, no one still now tried. In one word, it requires some research work to develop the code. The cost of developing the app will be much higher depending upon the risk factor associated with the research.

In general, a common app with basic functionalities cost somewhere around $2000 – $5000. However many times an app requires a backend server, admin panel, and website. Because of these the cost may reach over $10000. And if you are looking for enterprise apps, the cost may reach well over $50000.
