I’m a mobile app developer and I make low-priced high quality MVP mobile apps.
How you ask? Since I design & develop the apps by myself, I can keep my costs to minimal because I know how much / where to spend, the time in terms of features, design.
I’ve built Chat Apps, Social Apps, Inventory Apps for my clients in the past.
The only catch here is, that most of the source code would be reused for other clients so as to keep their costs minimal.
Since these are lean MVPs solely focused on feature / functionality, the price would come down to a mere $1.5k – $2k (iOS and Android included i.e Hybrid App)
