What would have been the development cost of an Uber App? I myself have thought of this question many times. So, I decided to do some in-depth R&D on this topic and here is what I concluded from all my research.

We know that the wave of the on-demand applications is still riding high and will keep on getting higher because if there is a demand for something in the market then so is the supply.

One of these widely known on-demand app concepts is Taxi Booking app also known as Ride Hailing apps and the most famous example of these kinds of apps is of course UBER.

In general, the whole concept of the on-demand taxi app is divided into three parts according to the perspective of the Driver, the Passenger, and the Admin. Further, there are different aspects and features of the on-demand taxi booking app for each of them separately.

What mainly I want to draw your attention to is that why you want to build an app like Uber and not better than Uber? Because there is a wide scope for the on-demand taxi services concept then shouldn't you be utilizing it for some different platforms other than general cab services.

Various cost factors for building an application like Uber ranges from the development phase to the testing phase and much more. Nowadays clients prefer their apps to be built for both Android and iOS platforms instead of opting for just one. The functionality, as well as the backend, is similar for Android and iOS but the frameworks & tools would have to be platform specific to the development process.

So, summarizing it all up, a single platform on-demand ride-hailing app like Uber would approximately cost from $40,000 to $45,000 at $60 hourly rate. And for an app based on the concept of Uber the budget would be around $70,000 for both Android and iOS platforms, this price may also increment in case of additional features in the taxi booking app.

Also, I would like you to thoroughly analysis the process of development of an app like Uber and this link can help you out, so make sure to check it out.

Good day Priyanka.

To create a complete taxi booking app solution like Uber, there are many things you need to consider in order to calculate the app development cost. Some of them are:

1) App Platform

2) App Features

3) Target Audience (country/region)

4) UI-UX

5) No. of App Updates

To create an app like Uber on any platform, you need to create 2 separate apps, one each for the rider & driver. Also, an admin panel to control both the apps. So, the features of these apps will also be different. Here are some common features that you should include in your own app:

Rider's App:

- Schedule the trip
- Trip history
- Preferable driver
- Rating the driver
- Payment mode

Driver's App:

- Trip history
- Route selection
- Rider reviews

Admin Panel:

- Manually assigning driver
- Driver details
- Fare management
- Interactive dashboard with customization

These are just the common features, which you can always customize the features as per your requirements.

Now, to calculate the app development cost, you need to know the approximate time & development charges. It may vary and depends on the developers that you are going to hire, as every company has it's own app development charges.

To find out an approximate time and app development cost, you can refer the below link as it contains the detailed cost estimation.

No one is able to estimate the exact cost of developing a taxi app like Uber. It all depends on a vast variety of things: app architecture and developer rates, features, country and industry, and hundreds of others.

Without going into detail into every possible aspect of app development, let’s briefly review big and general chunks of work that go into an app like Uber. Those components are:

-Backend development
-Web development
-Native app development (Android/iOS)
-Management and quality assurance

If you want to cut down the cost and create a simple taxi app like Uber, you’ll choose just one platform. This depends on your target customers. Clearly, covering both iOS and Android would be of preference. Any trusted software company is capable of developing both platforms these days.

Backend and functionality would be the same either for Android or iOS, while tools and frameworks in use would be platform-specific. For instance, Google Wallet or Apple Pay, or various PayPal affiliate services. Timeline for each platform – 200 hours at least.

Summarizing all the factors, and making a mere approximation, the single-platform app like Uber would cost around $30,000 – $35,000 at $50 hourly rate. While a basic app for both iOS and Android would cost around $65,000 but can go higher.
