  • Mobile app options and other suggestions to a newbie

    Ok let me 1st start off by saying that I am totally 120% new to this VB forum stuff so please bare with me if my terms or words are incorrect and please feel free to correct my terms so I don't confuse the people that are trying to help.

    Any way my question is presently

    we are running 3.8 and we are working on completing the CMS update to the latest and newest verison. I am looking to figure out how to make a mobile app like face book or something tha can intergrate in to facebook

    I know nothing about CMS just about to start learning.

    Can anyone give me a ball park on what it would cost to build an app of that nature or style or is there a plug in that would work well and have some of the same features for our community?

    I want to have the latest and greatest apps and features for our members and I do not have a clue where to even start. I am willing to do my research and homework just looking for a place to start.

    I have no skills in script writing or any of that

    Any links suggestions or pointers would be greatly appreciated

    Thank you in advance for you time

      To start, you won't be able to add anything to the vBulletin application I presume (res. by w.g), and secondly, if you were to start an app from scratch, well, it'd cost you over $1000.

      Let me give you a little timescale.

      From now to 10th January, I've been quoted at $480. That's approx $10/hour. Most developers charge about $50-100 per hour. This is going to go easily off the rails.
