Ways to Create a Cost Effective Mobile Business App

     Most businesses have realized that smart phones are their future and this is why every company want to own a mobile app to stay in constant connection with their clients. But, application developing cost constraints them from doing so. Being an employee in an apps development company, I come across many business owners complaining that apps are expensive and they don’t have this much of money to invest in it. They are right that getting an app developed is not cheap, especially for a small or a medium sized company owner. If you expect to get a full-fledge app within USD 15000 then, you are going to face a tough time searching for a service provider in the market. Therefore, here are the few ways of developing an app that will not require endless investment.

Automated App Builders – Automated app builders are the most comfortable way to make a mobile app. The notable point is that people without any prior experience of developing mobile apps and programs can use them. These automated app creators are available on the Internet and most of them are free of cost. They will only ask you to register before you can use them. Another very extraordinary feature of these builders is that they have a tutorial and a step-by-step app building process to assist the user during app development. Apart from online app builders, many apps building software are available, which can assist in the app developing pursuit. However, these software will require the user to have a fair bit of knowledge of HTML.

Both these sources may sound great but they are worthless for a business owner looking to own an enterprise centric business app.

Freelance Mobile App Developer – We just read how online app builders and app building software are totally a waste idea from a business owner's standpoint. In this case, he can avail the services of a freelance mobile apps developer. The problem here is that it is a tough task to find an experienced and a steady app developer. Of course, there are numerous available over the Internet, but how to determine their trustworthiness is a big question. Moreover, while hiring a freelance app developer, you will have no idea about his academic qualification, experience and the field of expertise. Another major drawback of hiring a freelance app developer is that they are mostly short of resources as compared to an app developer employed in a company engages in mobile apps development for years. The freelance app developer will not be able to provide the kind of programming required, if a business owner needs a multi-purpose or somewhat complex mobile app.

Off-the-Shelf Application Development Services – Another good alternative for getting the mobile app developed at economical rates is contacting a mobile apps development company and asking it to modify an existing off-the-shelf application template with your desired specifications. This way, businesses can avail the services of a professional app developer at a reduced cost. However, care is required, if there are issues pertaining to the ownership of the software used for creating the app and the licensing fees.

If I were a business owner, I would have just shut my eyes and selected the third option as the first option has its share of limitations; the second option is not as reliable as it should be to be used for a business purpose. With third option, a business owner can avail the services of experienced application developers working as a company within the budget set by him for getting his own business app.
