iPhone App Developer Referrals

How do you hire an iPhone developer?

Over time I’ve worked with a lot of different developers on a variety of iPhone and iPad projects. But what if you haven’t?

Below is a list of iPhone app developers that I have either worked with personally, or have been highly recommended as excellent choices.

Have you worked with an iPhone app developer that you can highly recommend?

If so, please leave a comment below, along with a blurb about your working experience with the individual or company. I’ll review the entry and follow up with questions before adding to the list.

Overseas Development

I’ve worked with Abhinav and his group on one app and they did a nice job. I sent a screencast of the mockups of the app before they started development so that there weren’t many questions around how the app would work. The upside is their hourly rates are less than US-based devs. The downside is there can be miscommunication from time to time. If you’re going to use them BE ABSOLUTELY SURE that what you’ve sent them is the final-final version of the app. If you make any changes it can throw off their schedule which may bump the project into no-mans-land.

US Based Development (freelance)

If you’re looking for an iPhone app developer that is in the mid-range cost-wise, often a freelancer will negotiate a fair price for development.

Ajay and I have worked with each other on both client apps and some of our own house apps. He is very easy to work with and is usually very good at “getting” what you’re after. One drawback is he works on freelance work part-time as he also has a full-time job. However he has always been good about hitting deadlines so I do not hesitate to recommend him.

Alex Lynch

770-378-6484

Alex and I have worked together on a couple of our house apps and he is very knowledgeable. He can program a wide variety of types of apps, from games to utilities. He is very business-like and professional. The only downside is he is still in school at Georgia Tech so his schedule at times does not permit a large workload. However he is very dutiful in meeting deadlines and keeping in good communication.

US BASED Development (agency)

An iPhone app developer that works for an agency will come at a premium, but you also get a higher level of service.
