Estimate the Cost to Build An App

The Crowbotics Estimate Calculator helps you estimate your development cost for building a web or mobile application.

The estimate figures provided will be a conservative range, most useful as a starting point for evaluating further cost and feature tradeoffs. Every application is different, and the ultimate cost of development, with Crowdbotics or otherwise, depends on a variety of factors.

Completion of the calculator takes about 3 minutes.

At the end of this calculator, you will be provided with a ballpark estimate of the approximate cost to build your application and the option to speak with a Crowdbotics Expert about the specifics of your build in greater detail for free. This is the best way to further fine-tune your total, whether you choose to build with Crowdbotics or not.

What It’s Like to Build An App with Crowdbotics Pro Services

Managed app development with Crowdbotics isn’t a typical outsourced development experience. It’s a hands-on collaboration between you and our dedicated team of experts to plan, design, build, and release your app at the highest possible quality and on your preferred timeline.

As soon as we receive your estimate results, our sales team will reach out to schedule a brief scoping call. This call will dig a little deeper into the information you’ve submitted and ensure that we have a clear sense of what you’d like to build.

Once we clearly understand your build plan, we’ll send you a detailed proposal explaining the full scope of work to be delivered. From there, we will assign a product manager and team of developers who will work with you every step of the way. You’ll enjoy daily and weekly check-ins until your app is live, and ongoing support and iteration from there.

What Makes Crowdbotics Different?

Our process leverages a simple truth about software development: most new applications look like applications that have been built before.

That’s not to say that there are no new app ideas. Rather, it means that no matter how unique or revolutionary your idea is, there are fundamental best practices that are used by developers across the globe to build leading applications.

Rather than reinvent the wheel for each new app, our platform crawls the known universe of open source components and intelligently selects code packages that are the best fit for your project.

This enables us to assemble the basic structure of your application rapidly, leaving more time for customization and fine-tuning.

App Development Best Practices

Whether you work with Crowdbotics or a different third-party development partner, the overall process of building an app will be consistent for any team.

It’s helpful to familiarize yourself with the phases of app development so that you can prepare materials to guide the team through each step of your app build’s timeline.

Steps in a Typical Application Build

  1. Outline Requirements
    Create a detailed build plan for each feature of your app in collaboration with the development team.
  2. Wireframing and Basic UX
    The team prepares a basic “placeholder” screen for each unique screen in your app and walks through the intended user flows with you.
  3. Technical Assessment and Architecture
    The team determines how to structure your app’s underlying components and designs the most optimal system for data storage and retrieval.
  4. Solidify Design
    The team replaces the basic wireframes with final design elements and requests your approval.
  5. Front End Development
    The team builds the user-facing components of your application.
  6. Back End Development
    The team builds the underlying components that power the user's interactions with the front end.
  7. Testing
    The team works with you to run through the intended user flows of your app and fix any bugs or undesirable behaviors.
  8. Deploy
    The team launches your app to your chosen platform(s).
  9. Iterate and Scale
    As your app attracts new users, you work with the team to add features and improve performance.
