Android App Development In The UK

How much does it cost to hire an Android app developer in the UK?

Depending on the complexity of your desired app, the cost of hiring a professional Android app developer in the UK can vary anywhere from £1,000 – £12,000 for a simple app or an app in its MVP stages, and more complex projects or scale-up app development can start at around £50,000 – £80,000 or even higher.

The cost of your Android app will most likely increase if you select a more experienced company as they will have more capacity to accommodate the development of more difficult features, as well as having a larger team with focused expertise in areas of user experience, design, lead generation, and marketing: meaning you will get better results and the exact features you were looking for!

Building a successful Android app also requires post-launch support including hosting and a maintenance package to ensure your app continuously evolves and remains compliant with changes to the Google Play Store’s guidelines or other, external factors such as Android OS updates, legal requirements, and more. At Zudu, we offer a Managed Teams service to help you fast-track development and successfully scale up your project with the help of a dedicated Zudu Project Team, including a Project Manager, team of designers, developers, and UX & UI specialists.

Alongside this, when narrowing down your list of Android app developers, it’s also important to view each company’s previous projects and consider whether they’re a good fit for your own project. Have they developed a similar concept? Have they worked in your industry before? Have they developed a similar feature for another project? Reach out to the company to enquire to help give you peace of mind that your app is in skilled hands. All apps have different requirements, so it’s also important to have a conversation with your developer to see what they can bring to the table.


Why is a well-developed app important for a company?

Having an app is important for a business in order to provide better customer support, increase engagement and/or repeat clients, better understand customers’ needs, provide more transparency, and introduce a tangible element clients can engage with (which is especially important for online-only services).

A well-designed app also gives your business the ability to connect with customers outside of your opening hours. This is more likely to increase customer loyalty because the customer will have access to the app when it is most convenient for them. An app can further benefit your business by expanding your target market using information that you have gained from your current users.

Most importantly, unlike third-party software, your app will be created to best meet the needs of your business and will be specifically tailored to the way you want to interact with your customers. This is why well-developed apps can help you present a good first impression to your prospects and customers as they will be able to see the immediate value of your business as well as get the added value of up-to-date content, push notifications, reminders, and more.


How do I choose a good Android app developer?

As previously suggested, choosing an Android app developer with experience is more likely to benefit your company in the future because they can design an app that will be built exactly to your requirements. Zudu launched in 2014 with a vision to create innovative, modern, and user-friendly software, and since then we’ve provided digital experiences to over 1m users and supported more than 300 companies to achieve their digital goals.

We have worked with a wide range of businesses and helped them launch successful Android and iOS app projects – exceeding expectations and going above and beyond what they originally envisioned.

In 2022, Zudu was nominated for several awards and went on to win the awards for Digital Transformation Specialists of the Year 2022 (Scotland) at the SME News IT Awards; as well as winning a Web Excellent Award in the charity apps and mobile category for the NRG app created in collaboration with NRG Crew Foundation and Mother London. Alongside this, Zudu was named amongst Clutch’s Top 1000 Global for 2022, placing us in the top 1% of service providers on the platform.

We were additionally shortlisted for two awards at The Herald’s Digital Transformation Awards: the Digital Community Award for our work on Dundee Recovery Road Map, as well as the Best Use of Technology in Healthcare Award for our project with QloT Connected Asthma.
