How To Hire An iPhone Application Developer

Hiring an iPhone app developer could get time consuming if you don't know the basics. You’ll want to make sure that you choose a reputable iPhone app developer from the start, and one that will do the job promised for the proposed price. Below are some tips to help guide you along your journey.

Get An Apple ID
Register as an iPhone Developer. If you plan to sell your app, you'll need your own developer id to configure your bank account for direct deposit (remember that Steve takes 30% off the top). The iPhone development company you hire will then submit the App on your behalf to the App Store for approval.

All iPhone developers should sign NDA's (non disclosure agreements). If you feel that you want to protect your idea, get a NDA in place. Sometimes an NDA is not necessary if the idea is already in the app store.

Defining Requirements
Make sure each iphone developer is estimating on the same functionality, spec and/or business requirements. A good practice is to have a document ready to give the iPhone Developer - this could be a simple bullet point list of functionality, an RFQ/RFP, a flowchart, a .jpg mock up (or a hand drawn fax), an email - really anything that will help put every bidder for your project on the same "page".

Be Available, Be Serious
When you fill out a lead form or quote form on a website and leave your phone and email, be available and ready to talk about your project in detail when iPhone developers contact you. Be serious by doing your homework - research if there is a similar app in App Store already and think about how much you realistically can to budget to hire an iPhone developer.

Agree on Price
Nail down an exact finished price before the project starts and get it in writing. Make sure each party understands how payment will occur, and when. A typical and fair payment schedule is 50% down, 25% at a development milestone and 25% at submission to Apple.
