Do I need an App or a Mobile Website?


The advancements in mobile phone software have led to a lot of new challenges for businesses. And with those challenges, new opportunities have arisen too. There are so many avenues to explore, many new markets being accessible, and a great new number of customers to gain access to. These avenues, markets, and customers were previously inaccessible, or very expensive to access. But all of that has changed now.

You can access these markets and customers through mobile apps and websites. The question arises when we have to decide between any one of them.

An app can be pretty expensive to have designed. A moderate quality app can cost approximately $30,000 to have custom designed to your exact specifications. Another problem that can arise with apps is that they have to be made for multiple platforms or operating systems. You have to make sure that you have both an Android version and an iOS version. Both of these operating systems have been almost equally divided among the population, and that makes it unwise to have an app for a single platform.

A website, on the other hand, is relatively much more inexpensive. You won’t have to squeeze for budgets as much as you would for an app. You can have a high-quality mobile website designed for around $4,000, that is merely a fraction of what you would have to pay for an app. With websites, updating is very easy compared to apps, which need large revisions in coding that might need incurring heavy costs too. Websites also have higher accessibility around the world, as there is more awareness about them and they are relatively easier to use.

Considering all the above factors, we suggest the smarter choice is having a mobile website designed for your business. And if you are looking for a website design service then look no further than Saltmedia. Call us Today at 780-539-7258 and get a Quote!
