    FuGenX’s Solution (suggestion) to choose right app platform:

    Simple Mobile App (Basic functionality app):

    Simple mobile app means the app that is mainly intended to give information. It doesn’t require any third-party API (application program interface) integration. The simple app may include UI components, feed list, simple filters, and map markers. Example: dictionary like app.
    Simple Android App: $5k-$10k, which takes around 2 months
    Simple iPhone App: $5k-$10k, which takes around 2 months

    Database Mobile App (Database-driven custom functionality app):

    Database mobile apps may contain features like users’ data, products list, real time chats, payment features, integration with APIs, and a backend server. Example: Any e-commerce app.
    Database Android App: $10k-$40k, from 4 to 6 months
    Database iPhone App: $10k-$35k, from 4 to 6 months

    Fully Dynamic Mobile App:

    FDMP is nearly similar to database app or database driven mobile app. These apps mainly rely on external information: Example: Twitter, Flipboard, Facebook.
    Fully Dynamic Android App: $60,000 – $80,000, from 6 to 12 months
    Fully Dynamic iPhone App: $50,000 – $80,000, from 6 to 12 months

    App that Focus on Enhancement or Modification of In-built Features:

    This app means that you will utilize the certain functionalities of the device such as alarm, camera, or flash and give users enhanced experience in using that functionality. Example: Camera+ app.

    Custom Utilities App:

    Custom Utilities apps are such category apps that allow users to create documents or file in a specific way using the advanced features and functionalities provided in the app. Example: Pages, and Numbers.

    Note: The cost estimation of custom utilities apps, and in-built feature enhancement apps is tricky without in-depth analysis of requirement. The cost of game development will be different or completely high from mobile app development.
