How much would it cost to build an AR application?


In a world increasingly driven by immersive technologies, Augmented Reality (AR) stands at the forefront, reshaping how we interact with digital content and the physical environment. Our team of skilled developers is dedicated to turning your visionary ideas into reality, crafting AR applications that bridge the gap between imagination and tangibility. Whether for entertainment, education, marketing, or practical solutions, our AR app development is tailored to unlock new dimensions of engagement and user experiences.

Join us in shaping the future of technology by bringing the extraordinary capabilities of AR to the palms of your users' hands.


Requirement Gathering?

Your requirement documentation should include as many details as possible. Try to provide developers with all details about your product vision, its high-level features, any external dependencies. It’s also good to provide some photos, sketches or wireframes to illustrate their own requirements.

Documentation cost for AR app development: $320-$1000, and it takes 16-40 hours rates at $20 per hour to provide a prototype, whereas to build a complete application it can run in several thousand dollars.

Note: If you don’t have your AR app requirement documentation ready it’s very difficult to make accurate estimation of the cost to develop your augmented reality app.

The planning stage includes communication between a Business Analysis team (R&D) and Client. They will solve all queries and discuss every important detail. This phase also includes:

-Creating a development plan, allocating roles to the team and the task of each person

-Setting timelines, deadlines and milestones for each sprint

-Making detailed estimations of each sprint.

AR development project estimate cost: We provide adequate time for coming up with a plan of execution, as planning is an important milestone of every application, it can take 5-30% of the time frame of the project, which inadvertently depends on project size and complexity. It’s obvious, large and complex projects take more time to estimate, so it is likely to cost more. Also, the cost to estimate a project similar to the existing application available in the market is easy.

Features Of AR Application Development


Along with augmented reality development, such apps require some additional common features :

  • Log-in, Payment integration
  • Support of several languages, Analytics tools
  • Chats or forums, etc., Backend integration

Depending on the number of these features, the cost of the final app varies a lot. The additional time begins with 24 hours and goes up to 200 hours.

There are also expenses related to testing, deployment, and post-release. Games and apps that need a high level of security require additional efforts.

The deployment phase is about submitting it to the app store. Depending on application size and complexity, post-release expenses may vary from 10% to 30% of its total cost per year. App maintenance may include the app’s update, security patches, adding new features, third-party fees.

Mobile device’s capabilities are becoming more and more advanced each year. It’s just a matter of time when people would start to use Augmented Reality for everyday routines. Therefore, better get ready and be one of the first AR products on the market at the moment customer interest explodes.
