Hello. I'd like to contact you for an App I'll like to build. Here's my email @nitaorbarry@gmail.com I'd appreciate it of you contact me.
seunoni34:
80k for apps? Are you alright? I charge a minimum of 100k for ordinary web design(with no coding) talk more of apps. And I still think that is small compared to what my colleagues charge. @emmatdayo the average budget should be 180k and above for a basic android app and 250+ for a basic ios app . App is not beans, it's not a website that you can build and leave for 1 year and still meet it there, functionalities change, apis change, OS configurations change and you have to be ready to pay management fee per month so your developer can monitor and update the app where needed. Any developer that charges you 80k will run away with your money and build crap for you.

Let me be honest with you, app development (including software and web development generally) takes time and patience. If you want a developer to do a good job for you, pay good money. Don't look for cheap developers, they will do your work once and run away from you when problem comes, infact there are developers that'll offer to do it for 40k self if you want something cheaper. But remember the lesser the cost , the lesser the commitment and seriousness attached to work.
Lastly, Cheap things are not good and good things are not cheap.

I cant stop laughing at the ridiculous prices many programmers that probably even lack experience are calling, one said 500k, another said 800k and yet another posted thousands of dollars. truth is, there are apps that cost millions or thousands of dollars, but what our naija programmers get wrong is trying to charge base on what they see their usa counterpart charges. it just cant work that way cause economy differs, u cant say because Americans charge $10,000, you too wanna charge same in nigeria, Take for example, A banker in the usa will earn averagely about $9,000 monthly which is about 3.2million monthly while in Nigeria, 3.2million is some bankers yearly salary. Indians are another experts in software development, but they charge noting close to other develop countries because economy differs, many programmers in nigeria who ought to be living well doing many jobs end up not having much because they have clouded their mindset base on charging like abroad programmers. To the poster, rather than seeking online programmers (though a few on nairaland who have worked with are good) but going to a good IT company in Nigeria will cost alot less, u might spend less than 150k for the kind of app you wanna build . If they charge you anything above 200k, be sure to get exceptional great functions.
you have a point. But there is no nigerian developer actually charging as high as foreign developers. The average hourly rate of an american dev ranges from around $100 (very low) to $1000+ (top nerds). But this is small compared to other professionals. A top marketing consultant could b commanding $5k/hr! While this may seem high to us (and the rest of the world) , it's not much if you are living over there! A good dev salary is $100k. But a house is about $800-1m+! In major tech hubs. House rent for a 2 room place takes a lot in ppls income. 2) while a chinese worker can earn $27/month (big enough to cause rice farmers to migrate to the city) . Most indian nd chinese programmers flooding freelance sites,output code of horrendously poor quality.They are some u.s firms who dont outsource because of this. When you consider the nigerian charge nd actual developmnt cost,u see,we dont charge much. Lets do d math:

24 internet- ~20k (spectranet)
adequate electricity-15-30k(nepa+gen+servicing)
rent - 30 - 50k (2 room self contained)
hardware subsidy-10k
(hardware failure etc)
-----------------------
75 - 110k

i've not included health insurance,food,transportation,TAXes, before we get to the main profit!
I know we dont think like these but top companies do,that's why they charge very high for their servces. They cover ALL COSTS and pass on ALL OF it to the end user.
So,while it may seem high, a developer charging what they charge shouldnt be. It's actually trivial,in d scheme of things! Top talent r also scarce,inspite of droves of indians chinese etc. Ever wonder y google/microsoft pay their engineers so well? Up $200k+ (and easily reaching $500k+) ? Because by their math, the value provided exceeds the cost they r paying for. And the math is working well for them so far. Most nigerians r grossly underpaid nd overworked,we've gotten used to it so when we see some1 charge what he's worth, there's outrage!

Kinda funny.
If i code alone, I should collect nothing less than 120k (120k is mah least expected pay).
But if i code with mah team, we collect nothing less than 300 to 400k(yeah right well plus added physical features i can't mention smiley....
Hahahaha u think coding is easy, go use a program generator and in less than 3months, i swear we would pull down your business with the same language used to code the program..
HIHIHIHIHIHI.....nothing beat programming.!!!

but guy u talk better thing for here, i was once opportuned to work alongside some austria programmers(my work was not programming thou, more like the guy doing the audit), and i must say, this guys just do things upside down and was expecting the upside up result, in quote this guys were aweful, well its not that i could do what they where doing(am just a learner), but to be honest the way they handled the project was just too mediocre for a over-rated IT professionals, if not for a lady programmer(that girl is too awesome), i guess that project would have been another abandoned project.!!!
Anyway Nigerian programmers are so bounded with building projects for people business and can't even think of an idea that could regurlarly give them the dough they want.
Look at Mark(facebook c.e.o)...he was a freelancer before not until he built facebook, i guess Nigerians can't think of same....
Is alryt though, the possibility of FreeLancers going into extinction is just near minimal.!!!!

On behalf of the top developers in the house, you will need to have 80k and above(depending on the functionalities), then the big devs will handle the project for you.

Expect nothing less than 40k to 30k if you have a small budget and you want to hire small devs

You’re a total disgrace to app developers

uber? Get enough funds becore you call any dev to create an uber like app, uber is not something kid developer like me can do so u will need big devs and they will likely charge u 80k and above, lets just say 60 or 50k and above if you're lucky

It will cost you minimum of 100k currently to have a high quality app and I know www.nomatechnology.com offers such services to improve business processes. They are doing a promo at 20% discount.

Naira please... This is Nigeria

Seriously, you cant get it for any price mentioned on this thread. Dont be deceived and run into starting a never ending project.

Uber is big, was not developed by one person, and has lots of seasoned developers still maintaining it.

Look for a simpler business model for your app may be you can get someone to do it for you around 250k.

Apart from the Mobile App you download, there is the API part that communicates with the database and also a Web App that serves as the back office to check all business transactions.

This is a quick brief to give you an idea of what you are talking about, try to do your research on google.

Cheers

Hmmm, ordinary wordpress I charge 100k last, 40k for simple site with 4 pages. And some people say app will cost 120k? Is the app a flashlight app or music player with templates all over, except so. But if I'm coding it from scratch na 200k flat, and that excludes monthly maintenance costs for bugs and updates. If you can't pay 200k for a simple app then do it yourself or find someone else. I can't kill myself.

You are a big thief. I will never pay you such amount if I was a billionaire and I will never advise anybody to pay you such. How much are you going to pay for hosting and maintaining a 4 simple page site?? I bet you are not as good as you think. Before you call me a noob, i am a web developer too and mind you, I didn't decided to be a software programmer to be chasing money but change the world through problem solving like Henry Ford and Bill Gate.

Once Nigerians become Tech savvy and literate, nobody will ever come to you again so that you will not cheat them.

Bros, that one concern you. It's what I charge, the bill is not for everyone. You can collect peanuts for all I care, I get 3 jobs like this per week from a company based in Russia and they highly appreciate my worth. Not only that, they pay 100k yearly for maintenance and hosting. Is Nigeria more tech savvy than Russia? Developers there charge $1500 for wordpress website! Your just shallow minded and infested with poverty. I have bills to pay and mouths to feed, I don't have time for 10k clients. I no be your mate oh smiley)

You maybe right or wrong you are not my mate but it doesn't change the fact you rob people and still a thief. Unintelligent people will pay such amount but it doesn't matter whether they are unintelligent, what matters is the developer telling them a fair price and not taking advantage of their lack of knowledge of how the web development works.

Anybody right now can appreciate you but it doesn't necessarily mean you know anything much about what you claim you know. Collecting money lower than the robbery charge you're asking From clients is not a bad thing because it doesn't mean you don't know what you are doing, it just mean you are being fair.

You can't invent what Apple Inc. invents and if I wanted today, I believed Apple can defend that price because the raw materials is not like water. I have a life and any good web developer realized that since you cannot defend the exorbitant price you are charging clients. It has proven you are an egomaniac human being and a robber.

You are the reason the black people and Nigeria is not developing but Africa will succeed without your unnatural ethics.

I guess if you get to serve in the Nigerian Government today, you will bankrupt the country because some politicians did so in the past.
