Costs for creating any mobile app is dependent on a variety of factors, especially the “production values” that are expected in the end product.
India charges anywhere $8 to $30 per hour is pretty good, enough to lay your eyes on.
What is mobile application development?
Mobile applications have contributed to the rise of smartphones and tablets in a big way, and many companies are showing more interest in developing their own mobile apps.
Mobile application development is the procedure involved in writing software for devices such as smartphones and tablets.
Developers write mobile apps to take advantage of certain devices’ specific features, such as the iPhone’s accelerometer.
When developers build an application natively for a device, it means that the code is specific to that device’s processor.
The disadvantage of developing mobile apps natively is that developers can’t reuse code from one OS to another.
For example, the code used to write a native app for an Android device isn’t compatible with a Windows Phone. Applications that are browser-based, on the other hand, are device-agnostic, so they run in the mobile browsers on various devices.
Often clients ask us to provide them with a ball-park cost to develop an app, so they can decide on a budget or approach investors to raise money for the app project.
And the answer, as always, is “it depends.”
Costs for developing any app is dependent on a variety of factors, especially the “production values” that are expected in the final product.
Here you go with a very approximate overview of Global Average Hourly Rates:
1) The USA / Australia-based programmers charge somewhere between $50-$150 an hour
2) Western Europe Euro demanding guys offer their services for €60-€70 on average (the UK developers are charging rates from £60 up to £70 in their special expensive currency)
3) Eastern Europe (that’s where we are) is pretty happy with $25-$50
4) And Indian $8 to $30 per hour is attractive enough to lay your eyes on.
In general it costs somewhere in between $8 to $30 to develop an application in India, which is much reasonable than any other part of the World. Also, the services provided by Indian developers are unbeatable.
But, the proper estimation costs depends on the type of app (which you have already mentioned), additional features you want to implement, platforms you want to consider, and a few more factors.
We would recommend you to put in some research on Google and you will come up with a great list of amazing Chatting App developers out there.
Contact a bunch of them, talk about your plans, get quotations and select the best among them.
One to one video apps can be developed in two ways:
1) By integrating an existing open source application around WebRTC
2) Use a third party professional service SDK such as OpenTok PubNub.
Next, you require a dedicated video streaming server with good bandwidth.
This can be purchased from providers such as Godaddy and Hostgator.
Get Linux server not windows server. HostGator, best for Linux.
Among the third party SDK, OpenTok is reliable one.
There are web applications using this SDK that are successful such as 24Sessions.
To evaluate total cost for project, detailed specifications are needed such as your target market, how online payments will work, can a user see other users who are online etc.
