    How difficult is it to build your own iOS app ?

    About a 1000.

    In all seriousness, it depends on what you want to do.

    Not sure yet.

    Don't have any ideas exactly and don't plan on selling the app. It will be free.

    If you have no experience then hard, if the app is moderately complex.

    I think an app that showed a date stamped history of iCloud / iTunes backups would be good - if you need an idea.

    Xcode will build a framework for a functioning app with just a few keystrokes. Of course now one must become a developer, pay Apple a fee, and learn how to submit that free app to the App Store. That process can seem more complex than some apps are.

    Depending on the type of app, the difficulty can vary between baking a dozen cookies to building a small house in the city, all from scratch.

    Are you talking about an app that shows a label saying 'hello world', or an app using advanced GPU accelerated neural networks to perform facial recognition of all of your photos?

    Asking 'how hard is it to build an app' is like asking 'how hard is it to build a structure of some sort'? Well are you talking about building a small shack or a Burj-Khalifa scale skyscraper?
