As days go by we have become more and more dependent on smart phones and mobile phones, thanks to the rapid revolution of the mobile industry. Whether it is booking a weekend away, or making a reservation at your favorite Chinese, or even checking out what your child has been up to at school, can all be done via an app. An app has become part of our normal routine, just like eating and sleeping. I remember a few years ago, when booking a taxi was a mission. If you manage to get one, there was always a chance that you would reach your destination late because either you were caught up in traffic or your pick up was late. In order to prevent these sorts of occurrences, many taxi owners are providing the facilities of the Uber taxi app, whereby booking a cab is easy. These apps have become overnight hits across the globe because of the ease, and comfort they provide, not to forget the guaranteed and timeous pick up.
The subsequent launch of the Uber clone after the global success of Uber has given birth to an industry that has never been seen or heard before. The on-demand service industry. In fact, since early last year, this industry has been growing by leaps and bounds and looks like it is on a boom to date, with new on-demand apps being launched for various services. Entrepreneurs are making full use of this concept and technology for various niches in the service industry. One of the popular ones is the taxi booking business.
Isn’t it better to develop an app from scratch?
This is a question that many entrepreneurs ask themselves. Looking at it from an economic and futuristic point of view, the answer to this question is “no”. Building an app from scratch costs a lot of money, not to forget the amount of time taken to develop it. If you were to get an app built from scratch with just the basic features it would cost you quite a lot of money, money in the region of five figured dollars, give or take a few. However, if you were to get a uber clone then the cost would be reduced by almost 75%. Today there are many development companies who are in a business of developing clones. It is better to approach one of these and see what they have for you or what they can do for you. These app clones are as good as the original if not better. Remember a new app will have a few hiccups whilst the clone will be clean – all these hiccups will have been addressed at the time of development.
