Making App Maintenance Easier with Appy Pie AppMakr

How much does it cost to make an app?

This is a question that is always asked by everyone. However, most people that make apps forget to realize a very important fact. The fact that apps need maintenance. Both Android and iOS are being regularly updated to optimize the user experience.

These updates to the mobile OS are the reason why mobile apps need constant updates and maintenance to maintain an app’s performance. Apps that are not updated are sidelined and eventually become incompatible with the OS.

Why should you make apps with Appy Pie

App maintenance is usually thought of as an easy side process to app development. However, that is not the case. According to our 2020 research into the state of application development, 75% of work that app development companies are involved in is the maintenance of the apps they have previously created.

Let that number sink in. Almost 75% of app development work is maintenance. This leaves no room for new apps and innovation. From a professional development standpoint, this creates a backlog and a lack of new ideas. Infact, the same research notices that backlogs have more or less remained the same as the years before 2020 despite more employees and faster app development. This backlog stems from app maintenance. 11% of the survey’s respondents agreed that backlogs are slowly getting worse as more and more apps are being created.

For a person who’s creating their own app, maintaining apps can become difficult since they’ll have to dedicate more time than they have. App maintenance can get complex and expensive crazy fast. However, there is a way to make maintaining your app easy. It involves our own Appy Pie AppMakr.
