How much does it cost to build a website like lynda.com?

The location of your future development company partner has a dramatic influence on the cost and the approach. Fairly enough, the more client-oriented a company is, the higher are its costs. Usually, the prices are based on hourly rates. Here’s the approximate breakdown by geography:

  • India and Pakistan charge 30–35/hour,
  • Eastern Europe $25-40/hour,
  • Western Europe $40-60,
  • something between 120 and 160 for onshore US companies.

Scale of the app development project
Creating complex client-server architecture will substantially affect the development time and cost. For an education app – this may or may not be the case, depending on what’s the purpose of your app.

Here’s quick approximate reference for basic education app features (the list is not even close to being exhaustive):

  • Custom user interface (Very recommended) ~$10000;
  • You’ll probably need an email login – $500+social login $1000
  • Dashboard/member area (list of courses taken, current progress, etc) – $2000
  • User profiles for teachers and students – $2000
  • Data sync across devices – learning with no device boundaries – $2000
  • Calendar integration – ~$1000
  • Messaging for student-teacher communication – ~$500
  • Custom app icon – $200
  • Integrating any 3rd party API will cost around (video and more) $5000
  • If there will by any payment systems involved – that will take the price up by around $3k to $5k or so.

The features from this quick estimation alltogether clock in just under $30,000. Please use this number only as a reference, it may vary depending on numberous factors. If you’d like us to develop a more detailed quote – we’ll do it for free – contact us at Peregrine InfoWorld

How much time and money will it take one to build an app like Ola/Uber?


iPhone & Android – $15,000 – $40,000

iPhone – $25,000

Android – $20,000

USA – $100,000 – $300,000

UK/Europe – $80,000 – $100,000

India/Pakistan/Bangladesh – $5,000 – $50,000 depending on quality of the developers

How much does it cost to develop an app like Uber? We come across this exact question with some variation approximately 10 times a day. The answer always is – It depends!

Uber’s business model has given rise to a large number of On-Demand Platforms being adapted for different verticals. They are being positioned as disruptive forces tapping the demand and supply trends we are seeing all over the world. Many entrenched industry value chains stand to be disrupted. The online-offline nature and involvement of multiple stakeholders make these platforms difficult to design, master and scale.

Entrepreneurs and enterprises looking to build something similar – adapted to different verticals often find this analogy easiest to articulate and hence the genesis of the question. There are several variables associated with getting to a correct estimate. Let’s have a quick look at these variables to understand what goes into designing an Uber for X platform. I am confident this will also lead to a better appreciation of why we as Juggernaut took a modular approach and designed an MBaaS (Mobile Backend as a Service) architecture to create a winning value proposition for entrepreneurs/enterprises looking at making a serious attempt towards a home run.

A) Is your business model exactly like Uber? If not, how does it differ from Uber?
Uber for X can be best described as a platform looking to deliver a product or provide a service On-demand with demand being aggregated online and serviced offline. But there are so many variations that can come up when we start analyzing different implementations in this field.

When we talk about an app like Uber:

  1. We can assume – supply is loosely bound to the platform and we are merely aggregating the supply.
  2. Demand is not scheduling the product/service for a time in the future and everything is instantaneous.
  3. Demand is not choosing the service provider and he is being allocated the one based on his choice and other variables.
  4. Service/product that we are talking about has a standardized flow and doesn’t involve customer making a selection across lot of different variables.

Clearly, for most of the entrepreneurs their business model will have many stark differences from Uber’s business model cited above. These considerations have a direct impact on how you deal with decisions related to identity, scheduling, matching, payment, etc. while designing the product and thus the cost associated with defining the MVP.

B) What is the business vertical you are trying to target?
Is it a taxi/limo business or an On-Demand platform designed for some other vertical? When you are trying to find a solution to help your existing taxi/limo business with an Uber like experience, there are many companies providing white label solutions. When you start going broader to say, ground transportation (shuttle/event/hailing solutions directed at children/senior citizens/corporates etc.) or beauty or home services or delivery and so on, things start becoming more complicated and it is difficult to find a script based approach that works.

We have been grappling with this problem for the last 15 months and have come up with a top down approach as a solution. The basis is that there are certain modules – matching, scheduling, tracking, payments, reviews, notifications, aggregation and signup that form the backbone of any such platform. So we have created backend code blocks or an MBaaS based architecture structured to take care of most of the use cases that can be thrown by an On Demand Business Model.

The underlying premise is that the front end needs to be custom developed. Leveraging the proven backend architecture ensures that we are not reinventing the wheel when it comes to deeper customizations/corner cases.

C) Evolution of On-Demand Platforms

When we talk about an app similar to Uber, it is helpful to keep the general evolutionary framework associated with all startups in mind. It is a fact that all business apps like or unlike Uber have to go through the 4 stages mentioned below. But the fact that most On Demand platforms are associated with network effects/playbook evolution/solving the initial chicken and egg hurdles, etc. the case for a clear understanding of these stages is much more important. Question then becomes are we looking to validate the business model that is doing less than 1000 transactions a day or are we talking about a system that has already scaled to multiple geographies built on top of a highly optimized logistics framework.

Focus areas during different stages of platform evolution are different. The first hurdle is getting a functioning product to the market that aces the core interaction. Once the MVP is launched its often a race towards achieving that product-market fit which in itself might span multiple sprints. Once the product market fit is in sight, the next hurdle is getting the unit economics (Customer Acquisition Costs/Lifetime Values) right while constantly improving cohort data. This phase generally involves lot of focus on building the analytics capabilities.

Total cost of developing an on-demand app like Uber:

By now it should be clear that the cost of developing an app like Uber depends on numerous factors. But here’s an attempt at the estimate. Building an MVP for an On Demand Platform involves creating web/mobile interfaces for both supply and demand. Add to this the fact that native experiences are the expected norm leading to parallel development efforts if we chose to build both for iOS and Android. The other important component is the nerve center/admin panel that doubles up as a CRM and a Dashboard to control some of the critical operations. Everything is glued together by the APIs that operate on top of central databases and control logic – part of the backend framework that runs on cloud.

Assuming the platform architecture is scalable and is able to handle 500-1000 transactions a day right away we are looking at an upwards of $10k-$30k effort for an initial MVP. Variations in the ball park primarily are on 3 accounts –

1. Number of stakeholders

2. Number of platforms that are part of the initial launch

3. Complexities in the business model

4. Geography/ Region out of which your development team operates or engineers the product. Per hour rates vary from $20 -$60 (parts of India/Eastern Europe/South East Asia) to $80 -$150 (parts of Western Europe/US)

With a modular approach that takes advantage of pre-built IP, we at Peregrine InfoWorld are able to reduce the time and cost involved by around 30%. In addition, since Peregrine InfoWorld’s engineering teams are based out of India we bring a huge cost arbitrage to the table while still ensuring smoothness in communication generally associated with in-house teams. The engagement processes have evolved over more than 5 years of distributed product development. All in all the costs for an MVP while taking the Peregrine approach can be as low as USD 15k to USD 40k. But more than the cost advantage the bigger value proposition that we bring to the table is experience drawn from doing more than 50+ On Demand Platform in different geographies and domains.

How much time and cost it takes to build an app like UrbanClap?

UrbanClap is an app-based service marketplace that connects customers to service professionals.


Domain and Hosting: For an app like UrbanClap we need a good hosting server because it should have the capacity to handle loads of Users. These servers will be costly. Actually, we need VPS hosting or a dedicated one. VPS hosting is Virtual Private Server hosting and is a virtualized server. VPS Hosting is one of several types of web hosting accounts you can choose from to host your website online. The cost of VPS hosting starts from normally $60-$70 per month and it may go up to $3000 per month depending upon your need.

Design of an App: The design of your App matters a lot, because an App’s theme attracts a lot of visitors. As we know that First impression is the last impression, so choose your designs very carefully. If you are hiring any App development company for designing an app , then you must properly check what services they are providing By reading their reviews and how much beneficial they are for increasing the success rate of your App.

Knowledge Of Coding and MYSQL Databases: You must Have Strong Knowledge Of knowledge of programming languages, MYSQL DATBASES website design & technologies like CMS, eCommerce framework, JavaScript, Security, etc.

Select a proper Payment Gateway: The most important thing that must be viewed prior to launching an App. Digital payment methods have become a lot easier to work within the past decade. Choose a proper Payment Gateway, which enables to make payments directly from your app and also Facilitates users to pay directly using their credit cards and debit cards.

  1. Hosting and Domain
  2. Design of an App
  3. Platform For Running an App
  4. Payment Gateway

Designing an App like “UrbanClap” can cost you approx $8,000 to $12,000.

I need an Application (iPhone) for my Website. I just wanted to ask you how much would it cost?

Cost factor #1: Scope

Let’s imagine an architect is hired to design a couple’s home. If they’re a newlywed couple with a limited budget, the architect will likely recommend a kit home—straight lines, regular corners—that’s quick and easy, and is therefore cheap to build. On the other hand, if the couple are empty-nesters building their dream home with a lifetime’s savings, then the architect will look to deliver on that dream—he’ll use the latest materials and techniques to create a free-flowing, complex and bespoke design, even though it will be expensive to build.

Alternatively we can think about the novelist, who sits on the first day of writing with a blank piece of paper in the typewriter. Think of your coder as that novelist. On the first day, they just have a blank screen with a flashing cursor. Everything that is to appear in your app, visually and functionally, now has to be written in code. So the coder must spend hours drafting these lines of code, just as a novelist must spend hours writing their prose. There will always be a minimum amount of time involved.

So first and foremost, if your budget is limited, you need to simplify what you’ll make, ideally focusing on one core feature. Be ready to incorporate existing interface designs, the code for which pre-exists and may be available via open source so the developer can incorporate it into your app. (Open source code samples can be found on code repository sites such as GitHub and Bitbucket.) The result is akin to a minimum viable product—it allows you to validate your idea, and to properly assess whether there’s enough demand for your app to make adding features and polish worthwhile.

Cost factor #2: Geography

While working in the same time zone as your development team can be helpful, there are also advantages to having a distributed team—such as 24/7 working hours.

Cost factor #3: Platform & Category

In the following table we identify some popular types of apps by category, estimating the number of hours each might take an experienced developer to build for an iPhone or Android device. We’ve separated these platforms because the open Android environment is much more diverse than Apple’s, which makes it at least a third more expensive to build for. The increase in expense for Android is because you have to test the app over multiple different devices and versions of the operating system; this not only takes longer, but bugs are more common.

With Android, there are ways to reduce the amount of extra work involved—and thus lower the costs—by only supporting specific versions of the operating system and certain devices. We’ll talk more about this in a later post.

What is the difference between front end and back end development?

There are three people in any Web Development team:

  1. Front End Developer – Let’s call him John
  2. Back End Developer – Let’s call him Dave
  3. Web Designer – Let’s call him Leo

John codes what you see on your screen when you visit a website.

This includes the buttons, text fields, forms and animations.

John doesn’t design the website.

He doesn’t choose the colors and the layout to use.

Leo does.

Leo creates a design for pages in image format and then John converts them into live pages with code.

Dave’s code handles all the data that is required by the application

If John, Dave and Leo are creating a registration page for their website, here’s what the process will look like:

Leo creates a design with a tool like Photoshop.

This design is currently in Image format and is non-interactive.

Leo gives sends this image file to John.

John checks the image and writes code that builds a real page that looks just like the one in the image.

At this stage, the page has a form that can be submitted, but if a user tries to submit the form, the data goes nowhere.

So, Dave writes some magical code that handles all the data that comes from the user when he/she submits the form.

Dave’s code validates the data for errors like invalid email, empty password field, etc.

If Dave’s code finds no validation errors in the data, the data is stored in the database.

Now, the user is able to login to the website.

The same process is followed for all the pages of a website.

Let me know if you have any questions.

What are some of the most prestige web design firms out there?

What criteria is used to determine what makes a website design company “the best”?

Naturally, Peregrine InfoWorld strives to be listed at the top of the best website design companies category. But before we figure out how we (or anyone else) can be considered as the best web design company, or even just one of the best web design companies out there, we had to first figure out how the “best web design company” was actually defined. Read on to learn more!

Qualities of the Best Web Design Companies

Defining the best website design company couldn’t be based on design alone. Not only is design subjective, it is also impossible to rate all the top web design companies based on this criteria alone. Basically, you can’t say a company is the top web design firm by only looking at their work.

So if it’s not the quality of web design that qualifies a firm as a “best web design company,” then what is it, exactly?

In our opinion, to qualify as one of the best web design companies, some specific criteria have to be met. Here are the qualities that we feel the best web design company in the world should have.


Is Peregrine InfoWorld the Best Web Design Company in the World?

Saying Peregrine InfoWorld is the best web design company in the world may be too far-reaching. It would also sound conceited, wouldn’t it? We can’t be the best judge whether or not we’re among the top web design companies since we aren’t completely objective.

But what we can comfortably say is that Peregrine InfoWorld is one of the best web design firms out there.

How do I become master in iOS development?

When I first tried out my new iPhone, I was instantly curious about how everything worked on it. To satisfy my curiosity, I started learning iOS development. Do you want to become an iOS developer? Let me give you some tips I wish I knew when I first started!

What’s the deal with iOS development? Is it easy, hard or somewhere in between? I’ve been asked lots of times how I started with iOS development and what was the learning process of becoming an iOS app developer.

My answer has always been the same – it takes time, effort and patience to get over the learning curve. But first, you’ll need some advice about required tools and learning resources necessary to become a competent iOS developer.

Equip yourself

Unfortunately, there is no way to develop iOS apps on Windows. You’ll need OS X for this, which means you’ll need to buy either an iMac, Mac mini or a MacBook. If you’re used to working on PCs, this might be a little bit pricey, but it’s totally worth it.

Also, you don’t have to go with a top model Mac. A machine with an Intel-based processor and the Snow Leopard version of Mac OS X will be good enough, as this is the minimal requirement for Apple’s IDE called Xcode. Newest version, Xcode 5 requires OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion). Older Macs that don’t support Mountain Lion still support Xcode 4, but is best to have the most recent version of Xcode available. Currently, the least expensive Mac is a Mac Mini, starting at $599. Of course, you can also buy a used Mac cheaper.


You’re probably thinking, why can’t I install OS X on my PC (in a virtual machine or build a Hackintosh)? This could get you started, but there are a lot of problems that can occur and I would recommend against it. If you want to be a professional developer, the best way is to have appropriate hardware which you know is stable and will always run smoothly.

Xcode IDE

After you’ve grabbed your new, shiny Mac, the next step is to download Xcode. Xcode is the official IDE (Integrated Development Environment) for iOS, which contains a complete development environment, including:

  • Compiler
  • Interface builder
  • Frameworks
  • Simulator
  • Full documentation reference library

Best of all, Apple provides this SDK completely free and it’s available on the Mac App Store. Want to see how awesome Xcode is and what it contains? You can check that out here.

With Xcode installed, you’ll be able to write and compile iPhone apps. But there’s a trick. If you’re not enrolled in the iOS developer program, you’ll only be able to compile your apps for the simulator. This is great, but not enough if you want to test more complicated apps that use a camera, gyroscope or other things available only on a real iOS device.

iOS Developer Program

Once you’ve created your first iOS app, you’ll want to test it on an actual device or publish it to the App Store to reveal your masterpiece to the world (and maybe earn a few bucks in the process). That means enrolling in the iOS Developer Program (which costs $99). It also grants you access to a large number of useful developer resources in the iOS Dev Center, official Apple developer forums and beta iOS and Xcode versions.

You can enroll and become a part of iOS developers community here.

About Objective-C

iOS apps are written in the Objective-C programming language. Objective-C is an object-oriented programming language based on C. That means that Objective-C is a superset of C and it takes everything from C, but also adds some extra functionality to it, such as Smalltalk-style messaging.

Object oriented programming is a programming paradigm that allows you to divide your application code into objects that have data fields and methods. These objects then interact with each other to implement specific behavior. Object oriented programming makes it easier to develop structured and maintainable code.

Diving into Objective-C

If you start looking for a book to start with, you’ll find a lot of them. Read the reviews and choose one for yourself or, for starters, follow my suggestion – read Programming in Objective-C by Stephen Kochan.

You can also start with another great book by The Big Nerd Ranch called Objective-C Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide

Also, you can learn more about Objective-C from Apple’s official library, or try it onCode School.

Cocoa Touch

After you have a basic understanding of Objective-C, it is time to use it in an iOS programming environment. While developing iOS apps, you will use Cocoa Touch, Apple’s UI (User Interface) framework that drives iOS apps. It’s a library with frameworks and APIs, containing everything from touchable buttons, custom maps, video and audio players to device notifications.

Learn more about iOS user interface

Creating your iOS app

There are two ways you can learn iOS app development: books or video tutorials. It’s best to use both.

Regarding books, a very fine choice is iOS Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide 4th Edition. The latest edition contains all the important updates built into iOS 7 and Xcode 5.

When it comes to videos, the best choice are video tutorials from Stanford University. Lucky for you, Stanford’s lectures are available online for free. This course contains everything you need to learn the basics of iOS development, and, as you follow it, you’ll write your first very own application for iPhone.

After you are finished with these, you’ll feel completely confident to write you own apps.

Don’t forget about Apple’s official documentation!

Apple takes care of its developers, so it has created an awesome online resource, containing everything you’ll need if you get stuck with something while developing your app. It contains example code and tutorials so you can start with specific technologies and aspects of iOS apps.

Learn to use the official documentation right from the start. It’s a major plus if you master using it right at the beginning. It will make things easier for you in the future when you’ll work with new things that you haven’t encountered before.

What next?

The best way to extend your knowledge is to continue creating apps. You have an idea for an app, but you don’t know how to write it right from the start? That shouldn’t worry you; you’ll learn things along the way. There is a massive amount of resources on the Internet for iOS development and I’m sure you’ll find your way.

With every problem comes a solution, and with every solution your knowledge will grow and you’ll become more confident and a more competent iOS developer. If you persist with your project and complete the app, you’ll definitely learn a lot along the way. That means you will be ready for a new, more complicated project.

Other valuable iOS resources
