The 5 Best App Developers in Dublin

Anyone who has a smartphone uses apps on a regular basis. So, it’s only wise to create an app if you’re thinking about taking your business to the next level.

Since developing an app takes technical skills, we rounded up the best app developers in Dublin to help you with the job. 

Budget is an important consideration for many, so let’s kick things off by discussing that first.

How much do app developers charge in Dublin?

The cost of building an app depends on a couple of factors including the type of app, complexity of the project, number of features, and the number of platforms the app will be launched on.

Some developers also charge clients a fixed price while others charge an hourly fee. 

We’ve noted some benchmarks based on the type of app in the table below so you’ll have some idea of how much to expect. Note that the prices below apply per platform, and may vary per developer. 

TYPE OF APPPRICE ESTIMATE
Simple/Basic Functionality Apps€10,000 - €20,000
Medium Complexity Apps€20,000 - €50,000
Complex Apps€50,000 - €3,000,000
Games€10,000 - €50,000

The Coder Spot is a fantastic choice if you’re just starting your business. Apart from app development, their scope of services also extends to web and custom software development.

We heard that their clients are pretty diverse, serving different types of businesses across multiple industries. For instance, they’ve built websites and apps for a counselling centre and a shop selling beachwear.

OPERATING HOURSMon to Fri: 8:00 am - 6:00 pm

We first heard about GRIP Software Solutions for their work on creating customised software for companies that have trouble with staff productivity. From what we’ve seen, their expertise mostly lies in improving internal processes, and it’s what they’re known for.

So, if you wish to streamline your business processes, then we highly recommend this company for that. On that note, they also develop mobile apps for Android and iOS platforms, if you wish to scale your business.

Similarly, we think that it can also be an option if you simply want something that your employees can use on the go.

They don’t really specialise in one specific industry, so you’re free to ask for their help no matter what the nature of your business is. We just wish that we could see more of the apps they worked on in the past, seeing that they didn’t elaborate on it much.

But our sources tell us that they make sure to stick to clients’ timelines and budgets, which is why we’re glad to include them here! 

Pros

  • Specialises in custom software
  • Specialises in apps dedicated to internal processes
  • Caters to a wide range of industries
  • Caters to Android and iOS platforms

Cons

  • Rates unavailable online
  • Closed on weekends
  • No app portfolio online

Fusio takes pride in creating bespoke front-end and back-end solutions for a wide variety of clients across different industries.

On top of that, we’re also glad to learn that they also work with clients in the private sector such as TV Guide Ireland and Bord Gáis Energy. This is a clear indication of their flexibility to work with anyone regardless of the nature of their work and project.

From design to development, they handle projects in a timely and efficient manner, we heard. You have the option to choose between Android and iOS platforms, or even both if you prefer it that way.

There’s not much to dislike about Fusio, really. They also offer a wide range of services like domain name registration and web hosting, perfect for those who are just kick starting their business.

HST Solutions prides themselves as an expert in custom software development including mobile apps. You can also consider them as a one-stop shop for all your software needs, seeing that their team works with a wide range of programming languages and tools.

That said, it’s safe to say that they can create different types of apps for Android and iOS platforms, from gaming to e-commerce apps. But what makes them different from other developers is that they specialise in cloud-native apps.

What does this mean? The most important thing to know is that this type of app is highly scalable, which means that it can adapt to the needs of your business as it grows. 

We also like the fact that they offer technical consulting services to help you improve productivity and find the best returns for your business. For instance, they can also help you with prototyping or technology selection, just in case you need it. 

In fact, you have the option to build your own team here, depending on your needs and project goal. For instance, you can build a team who can do mobile and web development, specialising in artificial intelligence tools. 

We also heard that they’re trusted by different types of companies, from startups to SMEs, across different industries. So whether you run a marketing agency or a large cybersecurity company, they can help you find the best solutions for your business regardless of size.

  • Wide range of services
  • Caters to Android, iOS, etc.
  • Caters to different industries

“We spoke to a number of different providers, but what I liked about HST is that they captured the brief very quickly. Within 2 thirty-minute calls, before we even worked together, they had given us a really developed idea of what the application was going to be. And that, I think set them apart” —Seamus Galvin, Research Manager at BSI

OPERATING HOURS24/7

Mosaic isn’t your ordinary app and web development specialist. Apart from those, they also offer digital marketing services, making them another one-stop shop that’s ideal for startups. 

Interestingly, it seems that this is the case indeed, seeing that they also help startups prepare all the requirements needed for early stage and later series investment.  

From designing prototypes to traction channels that can lead to rapid growth and investment,  rest assured that they’ll handle every aspect of the app development process from start to finish. 

We think that the presence of digital marketers on their team will help clients promote their apps properly, whether it is launched through Android or iOS.

We’re also impressed by their client list of large multinational corporations such as Coca-Cola and Adidas, which just proves that they’re flexible enough to work with anyone regardless of industry and company size. 

We would’ve liked to see more of their actual work though. Unfortunately, their online portfolio doesn’t include an overview of the apps they worked on in the past. 

Pros

  • Wide range of services
  • Ideal for startups
  • Caters to Android, iOS
  • Caters to different industries
  • 24/7 support available

Cons

  • Rates unavailable online
  • No app portfolio online
