|There is an app that I would like to code up, but if the cost is not too prohibitive, I'd like to outsource it.|
I searched the web for info on good iPhone dev shops and prices, but couldn't get good answers, so I thought I'd ask HN.
Of course, it all depends on the app. How complex, etc. Assume a moderate app, with, say, up to five different views, storing of some user data, and using the location framework.
Nothing too complicated. I think it might take me a month or more to code, but it should take a more experienced iPhone coder maybe two weeks.
Am I looking at $5,000, $10,000, $20,000, more?
1) I don't want bottom-of-the-line developers. I don't mind paying extra for good developers
2) I don't mind paying up to several thousand dollars. My take is that if I can't make that money back from the app, I would prefer to have wasted money than 1 or 2 months of my life.
Besides the price, do you guys know of good iPhone dev shops? I take it that the standard procedure is to look on elance.com, odesk.com, etc, but I've never used them and I'm not sure how to use them to find a good developer.
I'm in the SF Bay Area, so a good local dev shop would be great, even though I wouldn't mind a dev shop from elsewhere.
