Small Planet addressed costs to bring in an agency to build an app in a post on their blog, detailing many points that many firms seeking an app builder might not have thought of. If your company has been thinking of contracting out the building of an app, you should probably read the whole post.

- 18 weeks is a fairly normal timeframe, from beginning work to closing the sale.
- Many clients think they just need a developer, but strategy and design come before development and testing comes after. All are important.
