Assume you've just returned home from a long day at the office. The only thing you can think about right now is a double-cheese pizza slice. You're too tired to cook it at the same time. In this case, many of us will use UberEats or another on-demand food delivery app to order pizza.

According to a recent Rockbridge Associates survey, the on-demand economy grew by 58% in 2017:


We participate in the so-called on-demand economy when we purchase mobile app services. On-demand apps are the foundation of this economy. 


What Exactly Is an On-Demand Service App?

Let's go over what an on-demand service app is in a nutshell. Simply put, an on-demand service app allows users to order a product or service and have it delivered to their doorstep, whether it's a ride, meal, house-cleaning service, or anything else.


The answer to the question "What Is On-Demand Service App?" is a link between users and their needs — a mobile app-based link. There are far more components than a mobile app that connects users to products and services, and we'll get to them in a moment.

In fact, any Mobile App Development Company can explain to you about On-Demand mobile app and also help you with app development solutions.


What is the Cost of an On-Demand Service App?

The answer to this question depends on how you want your platform to be built. Making it from scratch will cost more than a solution built from ready-made modules, each with its set price. However, it saves money and time because the development team will not have to write basic specifications, build basic modules, and test them. As a result of the unique changes the app will go through, it will still have a truly unique look and functionality.


Each feature necessitates specific hours of work from specialists, and the app development cost is based on the modules that will comprise your app. Let's make a rough budget estimate using an on-demand delivery app as an example. The following essential elements are likely required for such an app: user profile, reviews, booking, payment gateways, geolocation, and chat.


The cost of implementing these features using basic modules begins at $10,000 and takes approximately 500 working hours. Keep in mind that putting everything together neatly may take some extra time. If you want your app built from the ground up, you should budget around $80,000 and 2000 working hours.


You can go wrong with an app that will satisfy regular customer needs in transportation, delivery, or minor repair work, regardless of how it is developed.



Creating an on-demand service app has become a new trend among businesses, but to succeed in a competitive market, you must take a balanced approach. Taking into account all of the industry's growth figures, the success of your on-demand delivery app is guaranteed.


And the overall cost of developing an on-demand service app can range from $80,000 to $1,50,000 or more, depending on the features and functionalities you choose to integrate into it. On the other hand, startups can start with an MVP and gradually scale up their business as their user base grows.
