How do we do it

Imagine you are building a house. If you go without any guidance, you’ll probably make choices out of industry standards and end up spending a lot more by crafting everything from the paint you use to chopping the wood for your furniture. That is how people approach App building today. 

It gets costly. Let’s estimate the cost of developing an app (we take the rate of $50 an hour as average): a basic application will cost around $25,000 with simple functionality that requires approximately 500-700 hours on development. Medium complexity apps take from 700 to 1000 hours, which will cost between $40,000 and $70,000. The cost of complex apps usually goes beyond $70,000 and, in most cases, exceeds 1200 hours on development.

With proper guidance, on the other hand, you would get tons of modular options to choose from, pre-assembled for the vast majority of needs. 

It’s quite simple. 

There are a lot of pre-built blocks to use today; 

all you need is someone to guide your app design to use them.

Think of us as your tech architects. Let us be your GPS to find the best route to your goals.

Our privacy policy is straightforward and comprehensive. We handle every project as confidential. All Round Pegs specialists have strict confidentiality agreements, biding contracts, go through a screening process, and we store your data in our cloud. At any time, you may request for the data we stored or its deletion.

My idea is confidential. How do you handle privacy?

Every material we create together belongs to you, period.

To whom will the materials belong?

The cost range varies from US$ 6.000 - US$ 9.000. It really depends on the complexity of the product. If you chose to develop with us, expect a price way lower than hiring an in-house developer. For a simple app --i.e.: one which handles database, payments, user data, but does not use technologies such as augmented reality or virtual reality--, the regular market cost is around 30,000 USD.

How much will it cost to develop my app?
