Apple and Google developer licenses

Do I need a developer license?

In order to launch an app to the iOS App Store and Google Play store, you must have a developer license for both.

How much do they cost?

At time of writing, the Apple Developer license cost $99 per year and must be renewal annually in order for the app to remain in the store. For Android, the price is $25, but this is a once off payment and does not need to be renewed.

Where can I sign up?

You can sign up for the Apple Developer license here and the Android Developer license here

Sign up as an Organization, not an individual account, if possible. An individual account will still work, but it makes things more complicated. You must have a legal entity registered in the US.

Is this cost included in your App Submission Service?

No, these licenses are your personal licenses and the fees are paid directly to both Apple and Google
