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
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
development company you hire
will then submit the App on your behalf
to the App Store for approval.
All iPhone developers should sign
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.
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".
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
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.
