One of the first questions budding app entrepreneurs ask is how much it costs to build an app. Another is how long it will take to do so. Why? Because building an app involves much more than a financial investment. It also requires an investment of time – and lots of it.

Like money, the time to build an app really depends on your particular app and the team building it. However that answer isn’t a lot of fun. So to give you an idea of how long it takes to build an app, we’ve come up with some rough estimates in this infographic below.

As you can tell, build times vary greatly depending on the project and type of app. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach, but, hopefully, the information above will help to give you an idea of what to expect. As with all creative projects, keep in mind that time frames are never written in stone. You should definitely set goals and deadlines, but always make room for the unexpected.
