Mobile App Development Cost

itCraft bills clients for actual work scope based on hourly rates of labor. The current rates are EUR35-45 (USD40-50) per hour blended fee. Invoices are issued fortnightly unless otherwise agreed with the client.

Customers are charged for the number of hours worked on their project based on a 7-hour effective workday (1 hour is taken for internal meetings, training and other activities which are not billed to the client).

Process of creating a mobile app in agile scrum Process of creating a mobile app in agile scrum

Working in Agile Scrum allows greater flexibility, agility and the opportunity to adjust requirements, shift directions, replace features, and involve users to get the very product they need.

The pricing is highly recommended for projects with dynamic requirements, projects where the full scope is not defined, and those requiring flexibility to changes in scope and requirements.

General Questions

How does itCraft estimate the app development cost?

Our technical analysts gather all the information received from you and prepare a list of major functionalities/main modules of your app. Then the complexity of these modules is estimated and translated into the number of hours required to develop them. This is based on our experience creating similar applications and a thorough analysis of your requirements.

What do I need to provide for accurate estimation?

After signing an NDA to protect your idea and any intellectual property that will be disclosed, we will ask you to provide a description of the application. The more details you will be able to give us, the better our understanding of your needs and requirements. Please send us any documentation you might have regarding your project and a description in your own words of what your app is going to be. If you have any UX/UI mockups prepared, they will be a great help as well.

3. Estimate of: the number of hours and the overall cost of your development
4. Choice of technologies to be used
5. Additional info about itCraft (portfolio etc..)

If you have any questions during the process, feel free to contact us and we will update you on the progress.

Do the rates vary according to the type of work performed?

The hourly rates depend on the team members’ competencies, seniority level and the technology proposed for your project. The hourly breakdown in the estimate will show the rates charged for particular team members’ work.

App Development Price – FAQ

How is the Project Manager’s work billed?
The Project Manager’s work will be shown in your estimate. It usually amounts to 10-15% of the total number of hours required for your development.
How and when are the invoices issued?
We issue invoices after each Sprint’s completion. In itCraft, we work using Agile Scrum methodology and Sprints usually last around 2 weeks. All invoices are issued according to international trade rules and regulations and details are agreed when signing the contract.
How much does it cost to make an app like Uber?
Taxi hailing apps of various sizes and complexity are being developed all around the world, and Uber is considered the trendsetter here. The cost of developing an app of this kind depends on a range of factors and it would be hard to give even an approximate figure. An article about Uber type application cost might give you a better idea what’s involved in creating an Uber-like service.
How much does UX design cost?
The process of designing the UX/UI can take anywhere between 40-600 hours. The more complex your project the longer it will take to design all the elements of it. An average size app (by itCraft’s standards) needs about 200 hours spent on UX/UI design and the cost of the process is about EUR8000.
How much does development cost?
The tables above show examples of cost breakdown of 2 projects completed by itCraft. Generally, the development cost of your app will depend on the complexity and size of your project.
Who will develop my app? Will I meet the team?
A dedicated, in-house team will be assigned to your project. We can conduct the onboarding/project launch workshops in one of our offices (in Warsaw, Bydgoszcz, Toruń or Gdańsk) or send the team over to you for introductions. For the duration of the project, your team will be available online on a daily basis and you will be continuously updated on the progress.
Is it expensive to visit Poland?
We would be glad to have you over in any of itCraft’s offices. Poland is a popular tourist destination and each of the cities we reside in has plenty of attractions to keep you entertained after talking business. Compared to other EU countries, we’re considered relatively inexpensive.
What are the costs of SLA/support?
For small/medium sized mobile apps that do not require immediate response to issues or 24-hour support, the cost of an SLA starts from about EUR200-300 per month. For larger projects, with a large user base and minimum acceptable downtime, a dedicated team would be required. The cost of such support would need to be agreed individually with the client.
