App development for small businesses has dramatically increased in the past couple of years due to lower costs in app development and companies such as Your Phone App making it affordable using a world class Content Management system, otherwise known as a CMS.

Previous years, it was virtually impossible for a small business to get a mobile app due to costs in excess of $50,000, let alone develop their own app due to the ever increasing costs of hiring a mobile app company to develop one for your business using code and not a CMS.

App development therefore, has become a lot cheaper because of companies such as Your Phone App, who are now considered one of Melbourne’s leading app development companies in Melbourne.

They have given many small businesses the opportunity to get a mobile app and making it more affordable more than ever before.

Some other attractive features of having a mobile app with Your Phone App is that your business can easily edit your app in seconds and you need no coding skills at all. You can also easily send Push Notifications too and add more app functions yourself.

I am sure many small businesses in Melbourne have engaged with many app development companies only to find out they can’t afford an app due to costing more than $50,000 and upwards of $100,000 keeping them out of the app development market.

Just over a year ago developers were currently submitting more than 1,000 apps to Apple’s App Store per day, according to data compiled by That number is now increasing fast way above this number. As of June 2016, there are more than 2,000,000 in the Apple iTunes store and growing.

The average consumer spends more than 175 minutes per day on their mobile device and more than 80% of people look at web sites on their mobile devices rather than on their desk top computer.

Apps are now part of our everyday lives from doing our banking, shopping, looking for information, social media such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to gaming.
