Quick answers to the most commonly asked questions
How much does it cost to build an app ?
The costs of developing an app will depend on the time it takes to complete it. The development time depends on a number of factors including the time taken to build the app and complexity of the app. Most apps generally take between a month and a few months to develop.
Do you offer complete solutions ?
Should I develop the app for iPhone, Android or Windows?
The most popular mobile platforms today are iPhone/iPad (iOS) and Android. We have the skills to develop for Windows devices, but the reality is that this need is declining due to Microsoft discontinuing its product. At the end of the day, it's your call but you should know that an app written for one platform has to be rewritten for another platform as they are completely different languages.
In most cases, we recommend developing apps for iOS and Android due to their dominance of the device market in NZ. If you’re on a budget we can also offer a write once and target multiple devices platform, but that would depend on the solution requirements. We can discuss the pros and cons of each approach based on the solution you need.
Do I need to maintain the App myself after its built
Not necessarily, we can do that for you if you don't have the time or skills. There are various different ways
What resources do I need on my side?
This depends a lot on the project. During design, we will need access to people who absolutely know about your business and what you are trying to achieve so that the app can be properly designed and there are no gaps. The best-run projects have a project manager / technical product manager who understands what is to be achieved, can make decisions about the app as they come up and can coordinate resources and people within your company. We will need documentation or people who know about the internal systems we are accessing, we also need someone to supply the content and images. You will need to set aside time for testing, whether that is with customers or in-house.
