How long does it take to develop/build an app?

With more of us using smartphones, the popularity of mobile applications has exploded. In the digital era, the number of people looking for products and services online is growing rapidly. Smartphone owners look for mobile applications that give them quick access to companies’ products and services. As a result, mobile apps provide customers with a lot of benefits in just one device.

Likewise, companies use mobile apps to increase customer loyalty and improve their services. Mobile Developers are in high demand as companies use apps not only to create brand awareness but also to gather information. For that reason, mobile apps are used as tools to collect valuable data from customers to help companies improve their offer.

There are many types of mobile applications, each with its own advantages. For example, native apps perform better, while web apps don’t need to be customized for the platform or operating system (OS). Likewise, hybrid apps provide users with comfortable user experience. However, you may be wondering how long it takes to develop an app.

To give you an idea of how long the app development process takes, here’s a short guide.

App Idea & Research

app-idea-research

_Average time spent: two to five weeks _

This is the initial stage and a crucial step in setting the project in the right direction. In this stage, you brainstorm ideas and select the best one. Apart from that, you’ll need to do some research to see if your idea is viable. Remember that coming up with an idea is easy; the hard part is to make it a reality.

All your ideas may seem viable, but you still have to run some tests to keep it as real as possible. For that reason, when Web Developers are building a web app, they analyze the available ideas to see which one is the best match for the targeted audience.

Targeting the right audience is crucial when you are developing an app. It saves time when shaping the app in the right direction as you have a clear set of objectives. Likewise, analyzing how the app affects the market is essential. During the research process, App Developers must gather information about potential competitors and threats. This helps the app owners develop strategies to tackle difficulties that come up after the launch.

The research process can take several weeks, but it determines how successful your app can be. For that reason, you must take your time to know all the weaknesses and strengths of the competitors, possible app strategies, and targeted audience.

The outcomes of this stage are app prototypes and the minimum feasible product.

Best Electric Bikes and Scooters for Rental Business or Campus Facility

The electric scooter revolution has caught on super-fast taking many cities across the globe by storm. eScooters, a renovated version of old-school scooters now turned into electric vehicles are an environmentally friendly solution to current on-demand commute problems. They work on engines, like cars, enabling short traveling distances without hassle. The result is that these groundbreaking electric machines can now provide faster transport for less — cheaper than Uber and faster than Metro.

Since they are durable, fast, easy to operate and maintain, and are more convenient to park compared to four-wheelers, the eScooters trend has and continues to spike interest as a promising growth area. Several companies and universities are increasingly setting up shop to provide eScooter services realizing a would-be profitable business model and a ready customer base that is university students or residents in need of faster and cheap travel going about their business in school, town, and other surrounding areas.

Electric Scooters Trends and Statistics

In many countries including the U.S., Canada, Mexico, U.K., Germany, France, China, Japan, India, Brazil and Mexico and more, a growing number of eScooter users both locals and tourists can now be seen effortlessly passing lines of drivers stuck in the endless and unmoving traffic.

A recent report by McKinsey revealed that the E-Scooter industry will be worth― $200 billion to $300 billion in the United States, $100 billion to $150 billion in Europe, and $30 billion to $50 billion in China in 2030. The e-Scooter revenue model will also spike and is projected to rise by more than 20% amounting to approximately $5 billion.

And, with a necessity to move people away from high carbon prints, traffic and congestion issues brought about by car-centric transport systems in cities, more and more city planners are developing more bike/scooter lanes and adopting zero-emission plans. This is the force behind the booming electric scooter market and the numbers will only go higher and higher.

Companies that have taken advantage of the growing eScooter trend develop an appthat allows them to provide efficient eScooter services. Such an app enables them to be able to locate bike pick-up and drop points through fully integrated google maps.

List of Best Electric Bikes for Rental Business or Campus Facility 2020:

It’s clear that e scooters will increasingly become more common and the e-scooter business model will continue to grab the attention of manufacturers, investors, entrepreneurs. All this should go ahead with a quest to know what are some of the best electric bikes in the market especially for anyone who would want to get started in the electric bikes/scooters rental business.

How much does it cost to make a mobile application like newspaper App?

The newspaper sales have gone down ever since the media decided to have their news mobile apps. To be precise, a 7% drop in sales in 2015, and the percentage is predicted to be even more in the present. According to a survey, an average user spends 2 hours on phone to check news updates.

Mobile phones have been around for a while now but mobile apps have taken over the human lifestyle. In America, only 2% of the population said they read printed newspapers and find it useful. The majority of the population either don’t read the news more often or read it on a digital platform.

In India, the readership of print media has decreased as per May 2017 reports from the Audit Bureau of Circulation (ABC). The same is the case with countries such as the UK, Germany, etc.

The stats above show the readership of some popular news channels such as Buzzfeed, CNN, Fox News, etc. All these stats prove how fast the newspaper mobile apps are becoming a choice over the print media. However, for some news channels, the cost of news app development is often a matter of concern.

The ROI From News Apps

Whether you are going to make your news app or get it developed by news app builder, you have to know the benefits you will get from the news app. It does not matter how much money you have put in the news app development as long as it gives a good return on the investment.

Subscription

Just like you have a subscription for your printed newspaper, you can apply the same method to deliver quality content to users in exchange for a fee. News apps like NYTimes have this method where they offer a certain number of free articles to readers and if they wish to read more than that, they have to get a subscription.

Advertisement

Businesses have spent more than $100 billion on mobile advertisements. For any news company having a mobile app, this becomes a great source of income. Having personalized ads for businesses will get you started. It will also be a good option to choose the ads as per the reader’s interests to increase the possibility of viewing the ad.

Campaign for Sponsors

Running a personalized campaign for sponsors on your news mobile app is another way of revenue. Tickets to shows or events can be sold on the app. This can also be done for a specific location or a particular group of people having similar interests.

More reach and readership

It is sort of a given that with mobile apps the reach will increase. However, with the reach, the readership will also increase. Countries like Sweden, South Korea, and Spain have larger news app users. The format in which the content is displayed on apps is so much more appealing than that on the print media. The use of GIFs and high-quality images increases the chance of readership.

So, now you know the ROI from a news app. Let’s move on to further sections of news app development and the involved cost in newspaper app development.

Which is a better choice, Android, or iOS?

This is the most common yet the most crucial question when it comes to news app development. The debate between Android and iOS is ongoing ever since both of these became the top platforms in the development world. When it comes to the security of the app, iOS has been a more secure platform in 2018. But Android has a larger audience so if you are going for news app development for the first time and want to get more audience immediately then Android is a choice.

There is also an option to go for a cross-platform news app development which will expose you to a larger audience. Cross-platform app development will not only reduce the cost of developing a news app as compare to news app development cost for two separate apps but also decrease the time of newspaper app development.

But if you wish to go for one platform only, a newspaper app for iOS will be cheaper as compared to Android news app development. If you are wondering how to make a news app for the iPhone, then you can contact our team for any assistance.

Since we are talking about news mobile app development, the location plays a key role. Locals are likely to be more interested in your app than far-off readers. Choosing the platform that most of your local readers are on is the best choice. To make things more simple, just go for a platform that is the most popular among your readers.

What Features Should Be Included in News App Development?

Assuming that you are a first-timer while getting a news app developed, we shall discuss what features contribute to making a successful newspaper app. If you are planning to build the app yourself, this 76 point checklist for app development will answer all your ‘how to develop news app’ questions.

Before we head on to news app development cost, let us see the features a news app must have:

Login or Registration

This feature is very important. The users must be able to create a profile by logging in through their email address or their mobile number. Users should also be allowed to log in using any of their social media accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn. Allowing these social media accounts to link with your app is a wise choice as the users can easily share any news on such socials.

User Profile

A user profile needs to be filled by the users that will include data relevant to you. When a user has a profile it becomes easier to suggest content according to their interests and past search results. These profiles can also be used to create engagement on any of the news content, eventually increasing the reach.

Filter Search Option

This feature is seen on many apps and has been loved by users. Having a filter in the search bar allows users to search specific news as well as lets you know what kind of content your readers are looking for. A search can be filtered according to location, keyword, date, or latest trending news.

Push notifications

As per the graph above, 6 out of 10 people like to read the news on their mobile phones. So, to keep your readers up to date about when news a posted or what’s the latest news update, push notification can be used. This feature sends a notification to the mobile devices of the readers, letting them know what’s up in a fraction of a second. This feature is also said to be one of the marketing tools as it helps in user retention.

Filter the Feed

Filtering helps in what the users want to see and do not want to see. Usually, this is done by having a ‘Don’t show this to me’ option on every news post. The more optimized feed a user will have, the more time they will spend on the app.

Offline Reading Option

Most users prefer saving an interesting piece of content for later and for the same offline reading option should be used. This feature allows users to save content to read in an offline mode. This feature helps when there is no internet or the internet connection is slow.

All Types of Media

Words are not enough to make a piece of content interesting and that’s when images, videos, and audios come into the picture. The app should support all types of media including GIFs, PDFs, Slides, etc. This gives more flexibility to deliver the right message and express properly.

Like, Comment and Share

This is the most common feature in any social media app and should not be eliminated in a news app. The option to engage and the ability to share a piece of news makes the whole user experience a fun one. The share option should also allow sharing on other socials like Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

These were some of the features that a news app must include. Now we come to the most awaited section of the article and that is the cost of developing a news-based mobile application.

How Much Does It Cost to Build A Newspaper Application?

News app development cost depends on certain factors. These factors are:

  • A choice between Android and iOS
  • Development type: Native or Hybrid
  • Number of features added
  • Hiring a development company or a freelancer
  • Outsourcing or in-house news app development

These points affect the news app development cost. However, the general MVP cost estimate for a news app ranges between $18,000 to $20,000 for a basic app.

If you wish to add any additional features, the cost may rise. A high-end news app allowing more user action costs around $35,000 to $45,000.

This is not as scary as it sounds because the better the app, the more the ROI on the app.

However, if you know how to develop a news app for Android or iOS then you shall only pay for the tools you will be using. Some app development cost calculators can give an estimate of the development cost.
