Job Opportunity!

Please give a quote on how much you would charge to create an IPhone app similar to Instagram but for videos only? I will give more details later. Just a ball park quote.

Heard about vine?

Usually the developers who work on those social apps get paid 80k minimum and higher. If you're looking for just one guy to do it, then it may cost you a lot more.

I will do it for ~60k within 3 months from scratch with 5 star UX design, native SWIFT iOs App, and Rails backend on AWS.

Yeah I know, I don't have a lot of iOs points here on Treehouse, simply because I'm waiting for Swift course and iOs 8 API and I already took a bunch of iOs 7 courses outside the Treehouse as well as whole lot of SWIFT tutorials. I also do have a mentor with engineering degree and 4 years experience in iOs development an more than 5 years in C, so I'm completely sure that I can do it.

More of this, I'm currently working on my own iOs video app :) so I've done some preps already.
