    Hey everyone!

    I am really completely new to the mobile app market but I have something that I want to get built. It is not a game but more of an aggregator with an api built around it.

    How much would I expect to pay for someone who knows what they are doing and can integrate ads from an ad agency and everything? I am looking for a push button solution that I can put up on the app store and make money right away. If you are an experienced app creator, feel free to get in touch!

    You'll need much more clear specs. Indeed, the devil is in details. Also, i would not bet on 'make money right away' statement:)

    This is what you need to do.

    Sit down and create your screens..write them out. Draw them on paper or in a Word doc. Create wireframes for your screens and then next to each screen list what each button, image, etc etc will do. It could be a 10 page doc or a 100 page doc. It depends on the app. This is nowhere near enough info to give even a rough estimate.

    Once you have your documentation written, then a dev can go through and give you an estimate. I would figure a day to 2 days for each screen. This doesn't mean a full 16 hours, but it means how long you can expect. Devs work mainly in short sprints of a few hours a day. Anything more and you're getting crap code.
