1. What is Flutter?

Flutter is an open source, single-codebase framework for creating cross-platform  desktop, mobile and online apps. It was released by Google and is by far a complete SDK solution, despite the fact that the technology is relatively new compared to others such as React Native. Flutter applications are directly compiled into machine code so it does not rely on intermediate code interpretation. As a result, this has eliminated any performance issues, making Flutter the most resource-efficient software among modern cross-platform technologies.

2. What influences Flutter app development cost?

The Complexity of the App

The more complicated the features are, the greater effort and time it will take. A simple feature takes 2-3 days to develop, whereas chat, payment integration, video calls and other features take longer and require a high level of accuracy and mastery.

The addition of more functionalities and third-party integration tools are some reasons that may raise the Flutter app development cost.

Location of the outsourcing company

The Flutter app development cost, as well as the cost of software programming in general are geographically varied.  Here is a table that will help you understand and compare Flutter app development costs in different areas:

RegionHourly rates (Junior)Hourly rates (Senior)
North America$100 – 150$150 – 200
Latin America$40 – 60$60 – 90
Europe$50 – 70$100 – 115
Australia$50 – 80$80 – 150
Africa$30 – 70$70 – 90
Asia$20 – 40$40 – 100

Developers in North America typically charge the highest rates per hour, followed by Latin America and Europe. Asia is the area with lowest rates. However, this has nothing to do with the quality of work as it is due to the availability of programmers in those regions.

App Design

For a great user experience, your Flutter app design is extremely important as it influences how your app looks, feels, and behaves. The goal of UI design is to make the app look better while UX design allows users to interact with the software seamlessly. Both are equally important in providing users with a great app experience. If the app is complex with animations and interactive elements, it can consume up to 20% of the total development budget. This part is especially important for applications such as fitness, sleep, wellness, gaming and e-learning.

Maintenance and Support Cost

No software is ever completely finished because the majority of app maintenance would consist of updates and bug-fixing to ensure that it will function properly. Changes in design are also required on a regular basis to ensure that your app remains appealing to users. As a result, it is not enough to limit your project cost to the development process, we have to include the cost of future maintenance and error-fixing as well.

Depending on the size of your app and how frequently you add new features and update it, yearly maintenance costs can range from 15% to 45 percent of the initial budget.

3. How much does Flutter app development cost?

Depending on the features and functions, there is no exact price or cost because it can vary a lot. However, the average cost of Flutter app development in 2022 is between $25,000 – $70,000.

4. Practical tips to reduce the Flutter App Development Cost

Outsource the Project

One of the main benefits of outsourcing is that you get a dedicated team for your specific project. Even though the popularity of Flutter is rapidly growing in the development community, there are still not enough qualified developers. Thus, it is easier to hire a software development company with a Flutter coders team than going through the hassle of full-time recruitment and onboarding of scarce developers.

However, in order to ensure the project’s success, you must be clear about your objectives and methods.
