DIY Mobile App Think Again Before You Do

If you have been thinking about a mobile app and are tempted to build it yourself, don’t do it. While you may think a DIY mobile app is less expensive, it’s the opposite.

According to Bluestone Apps, who has been in the mobile application business since 2011, A DIY mobile app could turn out to be more expensive than you thought.

Before you consider DIY check out a few of the problems, you’ll experience if you decide to go that route.

Not Budget Friendly

When you check out monthly costs for DIY sites, excluding app store fees, you’ll be paying around $50.00 for Swiftic. Buildfire basic is $59.99 a month but could easily cost more. It could actually cost you as much as $400.00 a month for a fully functional mobile application with Buildfire. Enterprise apps could run you $1,000 a month or more.

With that being said, it is easy to see that DIY builders will cost you a few thousand a year or more. You will also have to pay for the entire time that you are live on the platforms, which could be from five to ten years.

When you add everything up you’ll wish you had worked with the team of mobile app developers from Bluestone Apps.

Few Mobile App Customizations

What most people don’t realize is that DIY applications come with limited customizations. This means limited style options and functionalities. It’s impossible to develop the app of your dreams with little customization options to choose from.

With limited customizations comes more spending as updates won’t be free. DIY applications won’t let you make any styling changes unless those options are available.

No Customer Support from The App Stores

Apples basic guidelines explain that any application that uses a mobile app builder or commercialized template is rejected. The system rejects your app meaning you’ll have no chance of making it into the Apple app shop.

This is a huge setback, as you will not have the iOS platform to operate on. Most app stores have strict guidelines making DIY apps more risky. It’s important to note that Apple dominates the phone market in the United States. If you are rejected you will lose potential customers affecting your return on investment.

DIY Mobile Apps aren’t Unique

Just like website templates, application templates tend to look the same, which is why the majority of them fail. Using DIY mobile app builders don’t help you stand out from the crowd.

Customized mobile apps from Bluestone Apps put you at the front when it comes to being unique. You won’t have to worry about looking like everyone else when you have your new app designed and developed by Bluestone Apps.
