It will of course be more expensive but non-compliance to a guideline may result in FDA not approving (clearing) the device. It also sets up a greater risk of product liability as well.

I'll be interested to see what it costs to develop a regulated app as opposed to a non-regulated one.

Are these binding guidelines? Do we have any idea how many apps currently on the market might be in violation of them?
