Extremely prompt and professional. I was placed in a bad spot when prior website developer "walked off the job." Bo from Upshot stepped in and began my project immediately.

    When I met Mr. Barnhill I was looking for a company who could deliver affordable, high quality printed material for a monthly event in the KCMO area. As a graphic designer i'm very picky about the quality of my print design, I'm also leery of people who tend to promise the world without a moment of consideration. In our initial meeting, I felt as though Mr. Barnhill was vetting us as much as we were him. It was clear he was someone who valued time and understood the concept of a personal touch. The resulting meeting has lead to a fruitful business relationship that gave my organization everything we were looking for at the time plus someone who could (and has) helped us integrate our business onto a mobile platform. Being part of a small business there's not much that work out "better than expected" so when something does it's important to credit that source. I consider Joe Barnhill an asset to our organization and recommend him highly.

      So far we've just gotten web design mockups through Caliber, but they turned out exactly as I had pictured them, everyone was very accessible and available almost any time. Very professional and very fair pricing, would recommend to anyone needing help with project development.

      The Laplacian group worked on developing software for our insurance brokerage firm. They did a great job for us and were easy to work with as well as flexible. Many moving targets. It has been a pleasure to work with them. I will use them for all my future projects. Excellent Work!

        Q & A

        Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

        How do I find a good app developer?

        A good app developer can help you if your company wants to build a new mobile app for customers but you don’t have an IT or development team on staff. First, decide whether you want an app made for the iPhone or Android phones or both, then start your search by finding an app developer with expertise in your chosen platform. Ask for samples of their work, such as code samples, that can be tested on open source repository sites like GitLab and GitHub. You can also interview firms that specialize in mobile app development for small companies or startups; they should be able to offer examples of different types of apps they’ve built, and are likely to have expertise in a range of technologies and platforms. Before you sign a contract, make sure to ask prospective app developers these questions:

        • What other apps have you developed? Make sure the apps in their portfolio reflect the type of work you want to have done for your company. It’s especially helpful if they understand your industry.
        • What technology and development services do you offer? Ideally, an app developer will conduct a business analysis, develop the app, perform quality testing and make sure the launch is successful.

        Will you maintain the app after it’s launched? Releasing an app is only the beginning. You’ll need someone to maintain it too, releasing updates and fixing bugs.

        How much does it cost to hire an app developer?

        Software development is a serious investment for any company, costing thousands of dollars for even basic apps. It’s tough to estimate costs because there are so many variables to each project: user requirements, feature set, complexity, size, etc. Mobile apps can cost from $20,000 to more than $100,000, depending on what you need the app to do. The average national cost of an app developer is $237.50 per hour, but prices vary widely depending on location, type of app, features, and much, much more.

        To get a sense of what hiring an app developer might cost, decide first what kind of software you need. In general, app developers charge hourly fees based on the language they’ll use to code the software. Freelancers cost less than large software development firms, typically charging an average of:

        • Basic C development: $75-$150 per hour.
        • Front-end web development: $50-$75 per hour.
        • Back-end web development: $75-$150 per hour.
        • API development: $75-$150 per hour.
        • Desktop app development: $30-$100 per hour.
        • Mobile app development: $30-$150 per hour.

        Larger software vendors charge much more, often as much as $300 to $400 per hour.


        Who builds apps?

        Apps are usually built by software developers who specialize in mobile software. They may be experts in just one mobile software development language or know several, and may have expertise in front-end or back-end web development. No matter what kind of phone or tablet you carry, there are hundreds of apps for it — and new ones seem to be added to the app stores every day. Before you hire an app developer, it’s important to have specific goals for your app and a clear idea of its purpose. When your company is ready to build an app, you can hire a freelance app developer or work with an app development company that can also support the app after it’s launched. It’s important to know whether you’ll need the developer to provide ongoing maintenance and support or if your internal IT team can maintain it after its launch.
