Mobile applications have taken the mobile world by storm over the course of the last 5 years. In essence mobile applications make many tasks in life easier whether that be storing useful data or keeping your finances on track!
As of June 2013, there are over 900,000 mobile applications on the Apple App store alone, not including the Android store. This is a staggeringly large number and it’s growing at an alarming rate. The public now expect companies, businesses and brands to have their own mobile application and because of this, it is vital that your company/business has its own mobile application. This is where Create Click stand out from the crowd.

What is the process of mobile application development?
There are 3 main processes involved with developing a mobile app. These are design, development and publishing. Design is how the application looks aesthetically, development is the actual programming of the mobile application and publishing is the act in which the app is put onto the app store.
Design:Having an excellently designed mobile application is essential as it is what gives off the visual impression. A poorly designed application, no matter how well developed, will not have anywhere near the level of success a well-designed application will. The design also affects the amount of downloads your app will get due to nicer looking screenshots on the app page once it has been published.
What do you get?With a mobile application design package you would typically get a design of each of the apps pages in both a PSD (Adobe Photoshop file) and a PNG/JPEG. You would also receive a PNG/JPEG of each of the application’s buttons and images for the developer when they are constructing the app.
How much does design cost?The design of an iPhone or Android only app could cost anywhere between £300 to £7,000. It all depends on the complexity of the design, the number of pages, the amount of tweaking needed and so on.
Development: While the design phase deals with the visual aspect of creating a mobile application, the development phase is the process of programming and encoding the app to make it functional. Different applications cost different amounts of money so it is vital that you clarify with us what kind of app you require whether that be a simple table-based application, a native application or a game.
How much does development cost? Development, like design can vary in cost a lot. A simple table-based application can cost anywhere between £1,000 to £4,000 while a database or native application would cost between £6,000 to £34,000. If you want a game, it can cost as little as £8,000 all the way up to £200,000 however for a benchmark, the mobile game Angry Birds cost between $125,000 and $180,000 to develop. You must keep in mind that no matter how simple a game could be, it must be integrated with the Apple or Android Game Centers, collecting online scores and building online communities. This can possibly complicate the development process of the app which in turn makes it more expensive.
What about additional features? Features such as in-app purchasing, web services, game center integration and sharing capabilities are all additional features that can be added to your mobile application for an additional cost. As an example, in-app purchasing can cost between £800 to £2,500 to implement. This particular feature allows the user to purchase content from within the application for example, additional downloadable content for a game.
Another additional feature is web services that allow app creators to update the content of their app via a remote access point as opposed to changing the code. This makes the maintenance of your application much easier. This feature can cost between £1,000 to £4,000 depending on the amount of web services you need. Sharing features cost about £400 to £1,200. The sharing capabilities usually cover email and social media platforms.
