As a custom-made mobile app development company in the UK, specialising in Android application development and focusing on bespoke Android apps for business (Android enterprise apps), we are often asked about app development costs, i.e. how much would it cost to develop such and such an app.
As well as the time needed in planning, prototyping and testing your bespoke business Android app, the main cost of developing custom-made Android apps is the actual development time needed to code the app and any supporting server/cloud based APIs, databases, business logic layers and system integration. As in all mobile application development, this cost can be significantly reduced if we have already developed similar functionality in any of our existing apps whereby we can reduce the coding time (and therefore costs) by re-utilising existing tried and tested code for certain common functions (e.g. secure login/authentication, barcode scanning, taking photos and sending these to cloud servers, etc.).
Making use of the latest Android development tools and libraries for creating bespoke Android apps, we live and breathe the Android platform, programming language (Java) and SDKs and are therefore are very fast coders. As we base our app development costs on the number of hours needed to code and test your bespoke app, our expertise, speedy coding and existing code bases means we can offer what we believe to be some of the most competitive prices in the UK.

We do not front-load unnecessary fixed costs into our prices as we do not employ sales staff nor do we have an expensive swanky office so we have very low fixed costs and can charge extremely competitive rates for our bespoke Android apps which are delivered on time and on budget!
