Music app development FAQ

How long does it take to create a music app?

The time it takes to develop an application depends on several factors, such as its complexity and type, the features required, the types of platforms on which the app is to be released, and the size or experience of the development team.

The average time to create a basic music app with features like streaming music, creating playlists, and simple social features can take 3 to 6 months to develop.
A more complex product with advanced features like music recommendations, personalised playlists, or real-time collaboration can take up to a year or more to build. It is worth remembering that the app development process involves not just writing code but also the research and analysis, planning, design, testing, or subsequent deployment phases. Each of these phases can significantly increase the production time of an application.

Therefore, if time is of the essence for you, it is worth choosing a one-stop music app development company that comprehensively handles each stage, thus significantly reducing the time between each step.

What are the most important features of music apps?

Essential functions or features will vary depending on the type of music application. However, there are a few basic features that most music apps should have:

  1. Sound quality: This is an absolutely crucial aspect. Imagine Netflix with poor-quality video content. A good music app must provide the highest quality sound without any delays or interruptions.
  2. Library: More than just having a music library is required. A good app should have a well-designed, personalised search engine and division into relevant categories.
  3. Offline activities: a significant feature of a music app is downloading and listening to music without an internet connection.
  4. Social Sharing: In the age of social media, the ability to share one’s songs or favourite artists will be a crucial aspect. This can also increase brand awareness and user engagement.
  5. Design: A well-designed and user-friendly app makes it much easier to navigate the app intuitively. Eye-catching design only enhances the user experience, which can increase engagement overall.

How much does it cost to build a music app?

The factors that can most strongly influence the total production cost of music application development are:

  1. The type of application: Completely different technology solutions will be needed for a streaming app and different for a music production app. This can affect the price difference.
  2. The complexity of the application: The more complex an app is, the more time is spent writing code, testing, or creating the design. This, in turn, increases the price.
  3. Development team: The size of the team and its country of origin are also important. The hourly rate varies from country to country, so developing a music app may be more profitable in European countries than in the US.
  4. Additional costs: Additional expenses, such as licences or server hosting fees, can affect the total cost.
  5. Maintenance: Updates or subsequent design changes are also a key aspect to consider when setting a price.

All these factors make quoting specific prices an extremely individual matter. Therefore, giving an exact price is impossible. However, it is estimated that the cost of creating a music app can range from $50.000 to $300.000 or more. If you need help estimating the cost of your music app – don’t hesitate to get in touch with us; we will be happy to help!

What are the most popular types of music apps?

Contrary to appearances, music apps are not limited to functions that allow users to listen to their favourite artists or playlists. There are many different types of applications, of which the most popular are:

  1. Streaming apps: Everyone knows Spotify, Apple Music or YouTube Music. The purpose of these apps is to allow users to listen to and discover songs from a vast number of tracks or playlists.
  2. Production Apps: These apps allow artists to create, record, and process songs. Examples of this type of app include Abbey Road Studios, Dolby On, or GarageBand.
  3. Learning Apps: In the age of mobile apps, you can learn to play the guitar or piano while sitting at home. Apps like Yousician or Ultimate Guitar are designed to help users improve their musical skills and teach them how to use instruments or read notes.
  4. Social Networking: These types of apps are designed not only to listen to your favourite artists, but also to establish relationships with other fans. Among the most popular social networking apps are SoundCloud or Tidal.
    These are just a few of the most popular types of music apps. It is worth noting that each of them has completely different features or functions to suit other user requirements. Therefore, identifying the target group and its needs is crucial in determining the type of application.
