Hiring Dedicated Android App Developers: How Much Does It Cost?

by Joe Richard Android Application Developer
We have compiled a comprehensive list on what it takes to determine the cost of hiring Android App developers.

Factors Influencing the Cost of Hiring A Android App Developer

In Android App development, costing might vary due to a plethora of factors - it can be related to the development process, mobile platforms, or simply the features you want to incorporate within your app.

Very interestingly, these factors are all interconnected- one ends up affecting the other.

Hence, we have charted out a combination of factors below and how they influence each other, to help you narrow down your search on the app developers:

The Scope of Your Project
At HokuApps, we have seen that a lot of our clients think of only expenses when we talk about scope; large-scale projects will cost more and vice versa.
Only top Android App developers know that ‘scope’ in app development is about two related things: Budget and app complexity.

Think of your developer as a building designer. If you approach them with a low-scale budget, they will suggest a very basic home infrastructure, that is easy and simple to build. But, if you tell them that you want to build your dream home, they will actually invest a lot of efforts to realize your dream. All they would want is the home to look exactly like how you imagined it.

When you have sufficient capital in hand, you can go for enhanced android app development app features. Database supported apps, that have a backend supported functionality, can include costly features, such as custom User Interface (UI), third-party API and CRM integration, GPS, Accelerometer etc. Though this might seem like a costlier option, it would be better in the long term by investing in high-performance/functionality apps.

What you decide upon will contribute to how much you have to spend for hiring mobile developers.

Mobile OS Platforms
There are a variety of smartphones and mobile devices available today. Most of them are based on either Android, iOS or Windows.

It’s wiser to take this decision early, which will aid you in fixing the price of hiring Android App developers.

In terms of app development cost, building Android-based apps takes 30% more than an iOS app.

However, don’t make up your mind against Android just for its higher price. You have other factors to consider here.

Android can give you way more users to target than iOS. A majority of users prefer an Android based app because those are often offered free of cost and easy to use. On the other hand, Android App Development are widely popular for providing tight app security and enhanced features.

Types of App
It is very crucial for any top Android App developer to determine how the users are likely to interact with the app.

While it seems like your developer’s job, you can help him/her take the right course.
All you need to do is to choose anyone from the native, web-based or hybrid types of apps. The app category can also be one of the deciding factors when we hire Android App developers.

Mobile web apps are not exactly what we understand by a Android Application. These are primarily websites that look like an app. One good thing is that you can easily go for a web-based app with low budget, or to see how your app might like before hiring mobile developers to build it.

Hybrid app looks as if the native and web app got married and had a kid. It has good control over the device features like any native app and depends on HTML for browser-based activities. In case you are considering cross-platform development at affordable prices, hybrid apps are exactly what you need.

Expertise and Location of App Developers
There’s is an increasing tendency among business owners to opt for freelance Android App developers who can do the job at very low prices.

Hiring Android App developers with industry-specific expertise and good app development knowledge can be an expensive affair; but there will be assurance of high quality app delivery. Such developers are very likely to provide constant support and deliver a product that is market-ready and complements your business requirements.

It is just not the experience of app developers that affects how much they charge; their geographical territory is also equally important. For example, a developer from North America will charge way higher than offshore developer in India.

Besides, an offshore developer is often a better alternative as you can get 24*7 assistance and remote support till your project is completed.
