Since the dawn of the app age, iOS is the driving force of the app industry. Right from the beginning, iOS is the foremost in creating and selling apps. One of the largest developer community is associated with it. And the growing demand of the apps in the market have given birth to many top iOS app development companies. But one thing that always makes or breaks the deal in app business the cost. Client sees the cost as too much and company sees it too less. The grey area always prevails when it comes to the estimate of the cost.

Many top rated apps costs hundreds of thousands of dollars, while others end up at merely some thousand dollars. The cost of an app, depends on various aspects of the features of the app. In this blog, we will discuss about the cost that an app carries for its development, and the factors responsible for it.

The Key Points

As mentioned earlier, cost of an app depend on many factors, including,

  • How big is your app?
  • What level of UI are you targeting?
  • What user account integration are you looking for?
  • How much social integration is good for you?
  • Is your app payment proof?
  • What backend tools do you need?
  • How much integration and API you need?
  • What security level you need?
  • Does your app contain in-app purchases or you will sell it right away?

Every best iOS app development company will ask you these questions, and depending on your answer a cost will be formulated. These are the facilities that you need in your app and thus more features will result in high budget app and vice versa. But in general, any iOS app can cost you anywhere between $1000 to $450,000.

Types of App and Cost Involvement

Depending upon the type of the app, cost varies a lot.


  • Table Based App


This is very basic type of app where only content is provided in table formats and easy page synchronisation. If you provide all the contents and basic graphics, if you know Photoshop you can bridge the cost even more. These types of apps cost you anywhere between $1000 to $4000.


  • Database App


These are more sophisticated apps as compared to the previous category. They are well linked to databases and provide heavy backend activity. The data in these apps will be dropped in and then parsed accordingly. These apps costs you anywhere between $8000 to $50,000, depending upon the activity of the app.


  • Games and Heavy Apps


These are the top notch apps in terms of graphics and hardware requirements. These games use 2D or 3D graphics which makes them really heavy. Angry Bird costed about $150,000. Any simple racing games that uses gyroscope can reach up to $125,000 easily.

Other Considerations

As the list of the features of the app increases, so does the money. Any additional facility will attract more investment.


  • Web Services


Here you take the content to remote access point so that you can update your app using XML file instead of changing the raw code. This will add another $1000 to $5000 in the development cost.


  • Shareability


It enables your users to share the app content on Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms. Apart from these, new platforms are also gaining importance such as WordPress, WhatsApp and Instagram. This will add $500-$1,500 to the bill.
