How Much To Make An App: Free Estimator from Gravity Jack Makes Cost of Mobile Development Easy

Fun new tool gives anyone free professional estimates for any mobile app idea, in just seconds.

LIBERT LAKE, Wash., March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- What's the cost of an app? If you've ever had an idea for a mobile app, or wondered how much it would cost to turn your mobile idea into reality — the days of wondering what it would take are over.

The 'Free App Estimate' tool graced the internet (and app store) this week, as a freebie from Gravity Jack, a Washington-based custom software design and development agency — a team who has been around the block, creating custom apps for brands like Coca-Cola, TaylorMade, Boeing, WWE and more. The tool (as the name implies) gives users instant, clear and simple cost estimates for any mobile project or app idea, based on standard industry pricing for professional software development.

The web-based tool is available online at FreeAppEstimate.com, as well as a free mobile app for iOS (with Android coming soon) and gives small businesses and individuals who may otherwise be unsure of where to start with the mobile app development process, a clear first step — and then some.

Users are asked 10 simple questions regarding their goals for the app or mobile project — without having to give the details of their potentially million-dollar idea away. The Free App Estimator adds or subtracts cost, based on a user's response to each question — showing the user the changes with each answer. Not completely sure on every feature? The App Estimator handles that too. Every question is provided with a "not sure" option — ensuring that everyone who gives the tool a try, finishes with a better idea of what to expect, should the app go to development.

Once the questions are answered, users are given a total cost estimate. This information can be taken to any custom software development agency in the world, or conveniently sent to Gravity Jack's expert team, to discuss further, with just one click.

"We've taken the potentially confusing experience of software development, and really gotten down to the key critical features that affect cost, when creating an app," says Luke Richey, Gravity Jack's CEO. "Then, we took those aspects, and put them in words that everyone understands. Making a powerful, industry-ready app shouldn't be complicated — and now, quite simply, it's not."

The Free App Estimator is available at FreeAppEstimate.com or for free download on iPhone and iPad, in Apple's App Store.
