The True Cost of Building an App

The True Cost of Building an App | Curation, Social Business and Beyond |
The mobile app industry is expected to grow into a $77 Bn dollar industry by the end of 2017. That means two things: people are buying apps and you need one
janlgordon's insight:

I selected this article from Curatti written by by Andrew Gazdecki because it provides information on what it involves to take advantage of new mobile technology for your business.


Use these tips to develop and manage new technology.


Mobile App Cost and Delivery


In order to be successful your business needs to take advantage of the latest trends and resources. One way to do that is through developing a mobile experience for your customers.


Gazdecki explains what it takes to make this happen with the cost and setup that is involved.


Here's what caught my attention:


  • There is not one single cost to develop an app. The price can range anywhere from a few thousand dollars to a few hundred thousand dollars.


  • It takes many different variables to create something unique for your business. And because it's still a fairly new technology the price is still fairly high. As mobile evolves this will lower the price over time.


  • Developing an app in house can be an expensive way to go. Outsourcing can save your business money -- do your due diligence and check out the company first before hiring them.

A Glimpse into The Mobile World In 60 Seconds [Infographic]

A Glimpse into The Mobile World In 60 Seconds [Infographic] | Curation, Social Business and Beyond |

This article was written by Chris Velazco for Tech Crunch

The infographic from ad exchange, Mobclix in this piece aims to highlight what goes down in the mobile world in 60 seconds.

****Before you read the excerpt, I thought it was particularly interesting to post one of the comments made by a reader who saw the infograph.  He wasn't the only one that said this was an unfinished report. I think these people are missing the point here.

**This is a mere glimpse, the tip of the iceberg, to give us an idea of the magnitude of this exploding industry, it's not the be all end all report. I'm very careful what I post, I don't want to add to the noise, so look at the infographic with this in mind and imagine how it would look if you added what one of the readers said below.

One reader's comment:

Ulrich Weihler:  "Nice idea, but major things for spending mobile time are missing, surfing content, using communities, using apps, internet usage, downloading music and videos, listening to music or watching videos, sms and actually phone connecions to talk, etc.. that's why the chart looks a bit strange."


"In case you were curious, in the time it took me to write out that first sentence, over 23,000 iOS apps were downloaded from Apple’s App Store.

** Mobclix used data directly from app publishers, industry sources, and a little old-fashioned arithmetic to get the 60 second stats you see below.

Of course, considering Mobclix’s background, there had to be some ad-related factoids in the mix too.

Mobile advertisers will be glad to know (if they didn’t already) that some 4,111 ads are tapped each minute, though it almost makes you wonder how many ads

were ignored in the same 60 second timeframe.
