You will need multiple coders. Not only are there UX, iOS, Android, cross-platform and other languages to be coded, but all of these areas are mastered by different coders normally. You will also need to know what is "hard" and what is "easy" when you are prioritizing as the Product owner. With code, simple things to you could be very difficult in code, but the inverse is true as well, you can gets some really awesome things to happen in your app for very little code.

This is the reason it is so difficult to plan and contract out the development of an app's iteration without employing a team of coders

FAQ

 

When you are planning your app, developing and testing it, you will find that you need coders input. We give you a development representative that will give input on the design, quote your app as it goes, and give you all the tools possible to control your costs. In addition to this development representative, we work with agile and development (non-coding)  domain experts to give you education, refine approach, and focus on the most valuable pieces of your idea. This leads to a truly agile development experience and you having a full agile app development department complete with decades of cumulative experience and successes.

After MVP the sprint cycle we aim for as ideal is 1-2 weeks in duration. This is easily done through agile methods and we give you the expertise to build with experience, not just "on your gut". 

The cost of development is directly correlated to the amount of functionality that is in your app. Every screen has functionality. Even just a logo splash screen requires functionality to tell how long it should be on the screen (and other things). Without coders on your team, it is very difficult to get a plan together, let alone know how much it will be to develop the app. 

Through the transparency and control we give our members they set their budgets.

Currently our average member MVP budget is

$8,100
