How much does it cost to make a Bike Share Application?
To develop a Bike sharing application it would cost you $10,000+. However, the cost increases with an increase in features and considering various other factors as follows.
- App Design
Design of the application includes a systematic plan for integrating features, Imagery, App Icon, etc. Design is not only how it looks but also how your application will function. More the complex functionality greater the price of development.
2. Application Features
We have already studied various features to include in your application. Now off course all this features will come at some cost. As you go on adding the features the development cost also keeps on rising. Some of the exclusive features like push notification, Chat/messaging, payment integration etc. Can boost up your app users. But adding such features will cost you a bit higher.
3. Application Platform
Once you have decided to develop an application the main challenging task is to decide upon which platform should be your go to. You can develop your application on iOS, Android or on Windows. Depending upon which platform you choose your prices of development will differ. To make your task easy I would advise you to develop your application for iOS and Android both considering their features and popularity.
4. Integrated Payment Options
To enable people to buy a bike subscription within an app, you would need to integrate various options like Debit card, Credit card, Net Banking, Paytm etc. To add this payment mode there is certain amount of cost involved, so as you add more and more option the development cost of the application also goes high.
To get a quality application you would need to pay for it. And in my opinion, one should always go for quality over price. To develop a top class application you would need some good quality to stand out in the market. Even though application with rich features but poor quality have failed miserably. Therefore I would advice one should never compromise with the quality of the application.
These are some of the factors which contribute to the cost of development of an application. Well if you hire an agency they would have different cost planes for you some might cost you bit higher than other my advice is to choose the developer who can give you a quality application with rich features at the fair price.
There is high demand quick transport for shorter distances has widened the opportunity for the bike apps. Resulting in an increase of bike application though not so high, which leaves a great opportunity for you to develop a feature-rich and user-friendly app keeping in mind all the potential user you can rule the market easily.
