Helpie FAQ



Based off a brief conversation, it is impossible to tell you how much it would cost to build your app. It takes a detailed assessment of the app’s features to give someone a fixed price cost. But if we were to ballpark it – it typically costs $8,000 – $20,000 for a social media app and $15,000 – $30,000 for an app like Uber or Grubhub type app. Alternatively, all of our app prototypes cost a flat $4,000 regardless of the number of features of screens included



If you need to release a minimum viable product (MVP) to market, you can expect your app to be delivered efficiently and effectively within 3-5 months.

If you need an app wireframe, mockup and prototype developed, you can expect it to be delivered within 1 month.


With roughly 2.1 billion people around the world now using a smartphone, the mobile app market has never been more lucrative, with Android and iOS dominating the smartphone operating systems. You will need to decide exactly which type of smartphone user you want to target first if you don’t want to build both at the same time. As they are two very different mobile platforms that require two very different types of language (Android apps are predominantly done in Java, while iOS ones are mostly done in Objective C or Swift) and native UI / UX design.

For total market penetration, you will eventually want to develop for both iOS and Android. In order to save money in the long run, you can choose to develop your app in Cross Platform although native development is more ideal for scalability and flexibility purposes.



We use a five phase process that ensures your app is delivered on time and on budget. We put together the best team suited to your idea, who possess the skills required to get the job done and a team that complements your own skill sets.

The team includes a Product Strategist, Lead Project Manager, UI & UX Designer, and 2 Software Engineers.



We primarily work with Startups and up and coming Entrepreneurs, so we understand the bootstrapped struggle. Therefore, we created a simple payment plan for all of our clients. In order to get started with the project, you would need to pay an initial 35% deposit of the overall project cost and the rest of the payments would be broken down into bi-weekly or monthly payments as we develop the app in the upcoming months following with one final payment upon delivery of the project.
