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.
