Austin Distel on unsplash

Short answer: roughly $120,000.

Long answer: depends on the features.

Uber is the most widely used ride hailing application across the world. 

Founded in 2009, it had over a decade worth of time to iterate over features and see which ones are worth keeping, chucking away or improving.

This article will show you how much it would cost to build it with (most of) the feature set that Uber already has.

But keep in mind that Uber iterated over time and the app was much more bare bones than it is now.

Why Most Apps Fail

Answer: Because at least half of the budget isn’t for marketing.

Wait what?


But I’m building this awesome product, that will surely be enough for people to be noticed by itself.

I’m gonna maybe let people know on Hackernews and product management groups about this new product that uses blockchain technology, AI and embedded systems using Apache Kafka and [insert technology buzzword of the month]!

Balázs Kétyi on unsplash

People who want to build apps are generally enamored with the feature set they thought of.

And that’s generally a good thing to be excited about, especially if they’ve done their research and their ideas are one of a kind.
