Our app developers and app development platforms are here to help give your business the competitive advantage it’s been searching for.

How much does app development cost?

We are often asked to provide a quote for app development but building an App is like building a house. The contractor can’t quote you on a house without knowing some important details like the number of rooms, bricks, or wood and such… similarly, we need to know more about what you need to give you an informed quote. Here is our process:

Why your business needs an app

We all know the 80/20 concept in business… we tend to spend 20% of our time doing the work that earns 80% of the money and the other 80% of our time is spent doing the admin and other things that don’t actually make money. Apps are here to help you and your business to spend less time doing the work that doesn’t earn the business extra money. Whether you are a small start-up business or a national or international brand, you know that apps will continue to evolve and if you don’t get involved with the evolution… you will be left behind your competition. 


What makes an app successful?

It’s not enough to just develop an app, why are we designing this app for you, what are we solving, how are we giving you a competitive advantage and what benefits will your business enjoy?

It’s not just about coding… it’s about the mobile app ecosystem as a whole… the context is key. There are huge opportunities for app development and business growth. In 2016 the global app revenue was R510 Billion, in 2020 it’s predicted to be over a trillion. AppCity guides you step-by-step to ensure that you get the best app for your business.


Can you identify the opportunity? Here are some stats that might help…

Times the average person looks at their phone daily


Average % of time on phone spent in apps


% of people that always have their phone


% of smartphone users that grab their phone when waking up

There are a few ways to create an app… depending on your needs and budget.

Custom Coded App Development

Looking for a custom app development? AppCity has a dedicated team of experienced coders that speak a wide range of coding languages. Anthea will find the best coder or coders for your project and then assist you and them with unpacking and developing your concept into a working solution. We are very aware that developers don’t have the best reputations in the world. They are infamous for having very little people skills and emotional intelligence… which means that there is often unnecessary tension in developments due to lack of communication and understanding people’s and businesses needs. AppCity has taken the time to weed out all the sharks so that you don’t get bitten… and has found the role of “interpreter between client and coder” to be of VITAL IMPORTANCE. Don’t be taken for a ride by an untrustworthy team… get in touch with AppCity and let’s keep our development process enjoyable (and lean).

Seeing the bigger picture...

It’s all about engagement and functionality. Users have to gain value by using your app for it to be successful.

The average user checks their phone 150 times a day. 90% of time spent on mobile devices is within an app. THINK ABOUT THIS… In October 2016  internet consumption on mobile devices reached 51%. That means that the remaining 10% of the time spent on mobile devices is spent browsing the internet… which is more than half of the consumption of the internet. 

It is AppCity’s role to understand the mobile app world and ecosystem. 80% of users have their phone on them ALL the time. Why not let AppCity help shape the potential of your app. Let’s invest our time and resources in the best way possible for your business or app idea.
