How much does an app like uber cost?

 

Uber App

The most frequently asked question that is submitted through our contact form is “I would like to make an app similar to uber, what would be the cost?

To meet the expectations of our clients on this page we will transparently present how we would estimate the cost of creating an uber app.

What are the core features of apps such as Uber?

 

Uber Geolocation
Geolocation allows you to identify the location of your phone. It is embedded through the CoreLocation framework for iOs devices and Google Location API services for Android.

Uber Push Notifications and SMS
Push and SMS notifications can be sent using integrations with Apple Push Notifications for iOS and Firebase Cloud Messaging for Android. Both platforms also allow Twillio integrations for text messaging.

Uber payment gateway
The app supports Stripe and PayPal payment gateways. Uber also works with Apple Pay for iOs and Google Wallet for Android.

 

How many apps do we need?

App for drivers

A mobile app designed for drivers to share their postposition to find the perfect passenger and get paid for transporting the person. It typically includes features such as real-time and scheduled inquiries, trip details, and payment tools.

Application for passengers
This app allows users to order rides based on a pre-entered destination travel address. It includes features such as real-time matching of passengers to drivers, real-time updates on rides and a user-friendly payment portal.

Backoffice panel
When creating any mobile application nowadays, you need to remember that it must be conveniently and efficiently managed. Would you like to view multiple reports using your phone? It is impossible. That is why you create de facto another application (desktop) “to rule them all”.
