Verified review

I've been working with Teri for more than a year now most recently to develop Wordpress templates. She demonstrates that rare combination of attitude and aptitude—a software engineer / web developer who not only knows how to project manage but also how to communicate with clients. In addition to being an expert in her area, she's organized and reliable. A consummate problem solver, a job is never complete until it's completed to Teri's high-standard of satisfaction. I wouldn't hesitate to work with her again.

I hired Farseer to build out a website in Wordpress. It was a pleasure working with them as they are extremely responsive and took the time to meet with me and fully understand the business requirements of the project before we started.

We have worked with Matt since 2008 on a variety of projects. I could not be more pleased. Whether it’s MS Access, SQL Server, Visual Studio, .NET, VBA, web services, data connectivity, reporting, redesigning user interfaces or whatever, Matt and the staff at EZ Does It software have consistently outperformed expectations. All assigned work has been on time or early and pricing is extremely reasonable. Quite simply, if you’re looking for someone who can develop professional, workable, software that looks good, interacts with users well, and actually performs the tasks you want it to do, look no further. My recommendation? Hire them before someone else does.

I give Rhode Island Website Developers and their team a 5 star rating and thumbs up for a terrific job they did on my web project. Other companies I went to didn't grasp my concept and were unable to do what I thought was a fairly straight forward script code writing part of the development. I realize that developers have different programming languages that they write code in, and I was willing to allow the developers to make that choice on their own. Even at that level, other firms were unable to grasp the concept and make the online software do what is was conceived to do. However, when I went with Kevin Shick at Rhode Island Website Developers, he understood my company goals along with the concept. I knew he understood because he produced a project summary document that nailed it. Him and his team that were assigned to my project asked the right questions, and posted messages that were all in sync with the concept that I have been trying to explain to other development firms for over a year. Now I am using this product as a main part of my business model. It has increased productivity with the efficient tasks that it performs. I was also able to easily train my staff on the use of this new software platform, and it has become a daily part of our business operations. I cant say enough about how pleased I am with the results that Rhode Island Website Developers has produced for me.

    I hired Liquid Amber Studio to write a sketch for an Arduino processor and they did a fantastic job. They were more than accommodating when I had requests for changes in the code and their turn around times were very fast. I couldn't be happier.

    I hired BostonWebDeveloper to build an enterprise level custom B2B software platform involving many unique and dynamic data elements. We are about 50% done with a year plus scheduled development cycle, but so far I have been very pleased with the product results and process, as well as the professionalism shown to date. BostonWebDeveloper has shown the ability, with a very small team, to do great work on both front (UI) and back end(database design) , at a very reasonable price point relative to other more expensive shops. I look forward to continued great work from them as my site development continues. -Dave Leonard, founder still in stealth mode

    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.

    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.

    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.
