1. How much does it cost to make an app?
There are an incredible number of variables that factor into the cost of developing an app. A feature-rich, natively developed app for Apple iOS, and Android, can range anywhere from $20K – $50K. A multi-feature app might include news, events, maps, and information from a client database, for example. Pricing is dependent on the complexity of features, the level of integration with your organization’s existing databases, and the number of mobile platforms.

It is difficult to give an accurate quote until one of our Solutions Specialists has an in-depth conversation with you, and understands the total vision for all features of the app.

2. Who are your clients?
Our clients are businesses, large enterprises, and brands with a mobile application concept they want to develop and sell through the Apple App Store, Android Marketplace, or use internally.
 
3. What are your primary markets?
Tech 2000 works in markets across the globe, including major markets in the North America, Latin America (LATAM), Asia- Pacific (APAC) and Europe (EMEA).

4. How do I protect my idea or concept?
Tech 2000 respects the value and privacy of your intellectual property. We are happy to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) at your request. Each of our clients is the sole owner of the intellectual property that we produce.

5. How long does it typically take to develop a mobile app?
Development can take anywhere from two to six months after the initial kick-off meeting. Timelines are always dependent on timely communication between the client and our development team.
 
6. What is the your app development approach?
Our dynamic approach to development- agile Development- is based on iterative and incremental development where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between cross-functional teams. It promotes adaptive planning, evolutionary development and delivery in a time-based iterative approach, and encourages rapid and flexible response to change. This allows Tech 2000 to produce applications quickly so clients can have a tangible application of their vision to develop from.

The design brief defines the layout of each screen of the app, including the UI/UX, features, functionality, web service APIs, essentially, everything that we need to know before we can build the app. Our experience has shown that completing our design brief before we build the app saves our clients time and money.

7.What are the steps involved in creating a mobile app?
Design
First step involves determining your goal, objectives, and needs. If necessary, we next determine the feasibility of integration (with your web or backend systems) and discuss your timeline and budget. At this point one of our expert design teams quickly assembles a complimentary mock-up for you, which will include screen designs of your app concept running on an iPhone, iPad or Android device. We use the mock-up as a place to start the conversation for how the final version of the app will look. Once we are at this stage, we prepare a proposal, defining the scope of the project and projected timeline.

Development
Once a contract has been agreed to/signed, we have a kick-off meeting or call to launch development. Throughout the process, we send frequent builds to ensure that the app meets and exceeds your expectations. We also regularly test the app throughout the process to ensure any software bugs are resolved as soon as possible.

Deployment
When the app is finished, we submit it to the various app stores for approval. It typically takes 1-2 weeks before it is publicly available to download.

We offer an annual Version Guarantee, Maintenance Agreement, and HelpDesk services to ensure compatibility with new devices, operating systems and user satisfaction.


8. What is the difference between a native app and a web app?
A native app is software developed for a specific mobile platform. A native app, along with much of its content, exists on the end-user’s mobile device. A web app is designed for use within multiple mobile browsers using HTML programming. A web app requires an Internet connection for the end-user to access the app and its content.

9. How do I review the developed application before it is released at the Apple App Store?
During the design phase, you get to approve each screen of your app before it is developed. Once the development phase begins, Tech 2000 schedules ad-hoc beta releases to you as updates and changes are made to your app. You will be able to test the beta releases of your app on your smartphone or tablet devices. You give the final approval before the app is released to market. A full explanation of our ad-hoc distribution releases will be detailed in the proposal for your project.
 
10. How is my application submitted to the Apple App Store?
Tech 2000 will handle all the necessary steps for submitting your app to Apple, Inc. We regularly review and discuss these processes with you as each step is completed. On completion of the process, and with your final approval, your app will be submitted to the Apple App Store.
 
11. What services does Tech 2000 provide, once an app is released?
At Tech 2000, we know our job is not finished upon the successful delivery of your app. Once your app is on the market, you may realize the need for changes, or have new ideas for improving your product. We work closely with you to make these changes and improvements. For major changes to the app we bill at a fixed rate. For minor changes, we charge an hourly rate.
