Questions You may have

RedCat:

The timeline for sports app development varies based on the complexity and features involved. For instance, developing a simple home gym or nutrition application might take a few months with a team of 3, while more intricate apps, like those focused on gym management or similar to Strava, require months and doubled teams.

Our approach involves a Discovery phase to understand unique features, followed by close cooperation with our clients to ensure timely delivery. Also, consider all custom IoT integrations (if any), and other third-party data collectors or providers – those are usually the most time-consuming features. Still, if you have any reference apps nearby – feel free to show it and we will get back to you with a rough estimate.

Here you can find several examples of Sports apps we delivered – the timeline and team composition are right there.

RedCat:

The cost of sports app development at RedCat hinges on multiple factors, such as the scope of work, unique features versus standard features, and the tech stack used. To provide a ballpark figure, a basic sports app built by a team of 3 developers might start from $40,000, where we assume to have a simple mobile app on React Native and an admin dashboard on React.js for mobile app management. However, more complex apps with IoT, AI or ML integration can elevate the cost. Also, consider, how many roles and interfaces the app is supposed to have.

Besides that, Sports apps are exactly the type of apps where a lot of user data from training session is to be stored, and same goes if an app provides some content to view and repeat. All this results into an Infrastructure const, which usually takes up to 1 % of budget during development, and up to 3-5 % of all costs after release.

We offer a transparent project estimate after understanding the requirements, and if you coma up with something unique to the market, it make sense to invest more into a Discovery phase first. In this way you get both a detailed estimate, and all technical documentation needed to start coding itself with no doubts. Plus, an optimal projection of Infrastructire and maintenamce costs.

RedCat:

It’s a headache, but possible. And also, it doubles the time for this integration.

RedCat:

Yes, and it seems you know what you plan to do with this data. If we are talking about some ML integration – there are a couple of proven solutions for that. If you plan to export or sell this data – let us know, then it’s another approach. If it’s a measurement for measurement, or you haven’t decided yet – welcome to our business analysis specialist, he will help to create a data structure and business rules in a most sagacious way.
