Now, Let’s get started to know the cost of flutter application development

What is the Cost to Develop Flutter App?

There is not a fixed cost of Flutter app development. It depends on the formula given below.

Total number of hours X Hourly rate = Flutter app development cost

Now, let’s understand the first part of this formula, i.e. Total number of hours

The total number of hours required to develop a Flutter app depends on many factors. Out of which, complexity is the most important factor.

The complexity of a mobile app depends on the entities and the features. Entities include the data and constantly updating information in the mobile app. On the contrary, Features include what a user does and how the app functions.

For easier understanding, we are dividing app complexity into three types: Simple, Medium, and Complex. We have explained these types in detail when you read further.

Now, let’s understand the second part of this formula. i.e. Hourly rate

Hourly rate depends on the location & experience of the Flutter app development team. India is the best location to develop your Flutter app because Indian mobile app development companies are the perfect combination when it comes to quality and price.

Take a look at below table to get an idea about hourly rate of developers in different regions:

Country Hourly Rate (In US Dollars)
USA & North America $74 to 200
Ukraine $30 to 50
Eastern Europe $30 to 50
Western Europe $60 to 150
Australia $100 to 150
India $15 to 30

From the above table, it is clear that the hourly rate of developers is lowest in India compared to other countries. Therefore, it is recommended to hire Flutter developers from India.

Now, let’s check Flutter app development cost in India depending on project complexity.

The apps with comprehensive features and functionalities fall under large-scale or complex apps. Besides this, complex apps mainly utilize the latest technologies available in the market, such as AR/VR, Artificial Intelligence, and more. Moreover, these apps require various third-party integrations to function efficiently.

Key Features of Complex Mobile App
