App creation is expensive. Between finding a team that will produce the product you want correctly, to paying them through your hard-earned, bootstrapped money, you could be shelling out somewhere between $50,000 to $150,000, along with software maintenance, adding an additional 15 to 20% of the initial development yearly in cost. Doly, a mobile app platform created by a black tech founder, wants to change that through a user-friendly, mobile app interface blending an intuitive set-up that spans to three different price points.
The platform features responsive design based on a powerful Ionic Framework to build beautiful and efficient apps; a powerful editor to easily create from a drag and drop interface; safe and secure hosting, which is free and unlimited for your app and its data with every plan; and real-time analytics that provide complete reports from installs to page views. The reports allow you to monitor your app with insights from features and download user lists for marketing operations.
“Doly provides an opportunity for everyone to create a mobile app without the worries of mobile app development and its cost,” said CEO Bruce Hamilton. “We’ve created a very easy-to-use platform that will allow anyone with an idea or business to be a part of the technological revolution.”
The three-tiered pricing system starts at $15 per app a month, excluding developer publishing fees. From there it moves up to $35, which gives you the $15 feature set that includes allowing you to sell unlimited products and accept donations, in addition to an extended list of other available app features. From there ,you have the choice to purchase the $50 plan, which extends your access to all app features on the platform.
You can do all of this without putting any money down by choosing their trial period, which is accessible on any of the plans. Additionally, discounts are offered if you pay annually as opposed to month to month.
