To learn more about mobile app development, visit Clutch's App Development resources page.

How much does it cost to build a mobile application? Like any piece of software, mobile apps vary widely in terms of development cost. We surveyed some of the leading mobile app development companies on the cost to develop a mobile app, and found that the median cost range is between $37,913 and $171,450, but could climb up to $500,000 or higher. The best way to find out where your app will fall in that range is to obtain price quotes from several development companies; however, we've included each cost component in our survey below to provide an understanding of what some of the largest cost drivers are.
