I am in the process of creating an ecommerce Shopify site and also want to create a simple weight loss tracker App for IOS to accompany the programs we will be selling.

Question- is anyone familiar with what it might cost to create a very simple app that has weight loss tracker, diet journal, workout journal features?

Really just need a basic app with these functions that we can build off of but trying to bootstrap and get this built for as cheap as we can and redesign later with improvements.

Would love to hear feedback from those who have taken on similar projects or have built similar apps.

Don't have a lot of experience in apps but I did have one developed last year and went through the hiring process on upwork.

Even a simple app is going to cost you a decent amount. If you want just an iOS app and not android you are probably looking at around 5-10k. You might be able to get it for less but you'll be dealing with a non-us company which can often result in pulling your hair out working and communicating with them...not to mention the subpar quality end results that often happen.

Could you just refer them to an app that's already built? MyFitnessPal is free and does all of that.

Maybe something like this would work? Launch A White Label Wellness App

If all you need is a simple app, you could use a white-label app until you need to build your own.

Or as wade1mill said, just point them to another app that already has the ability.

Hey yes,

I know what you are saying, but what I am trying to do is create a similar app to MyFitnessPal that is branded with out own brand. The reason for this is because at a later date I really want to build in many more interactive features. Plus we also want to create calls to action within the app to promote e commerce sales.

Looking into this. This might be a good place to start as we will be able to have a base to build off of and then custom build out the features we know we need to add on later.

Not sure exactly but you could also try "The Foundation" style of pre-selling the development to your first users for a discount and using that to get it built.
