- here, someone likes to pay $140 for a chat application (iOS and Android)
- here, someone like to have an audio streaming mobile application be built. He is willing to pay $8 - $15 per hour!
- here, someone wants an iOS kernel driver. He likes to pay $10 - $30 for that. Considering that there is no documentation (or support) from Apple whatsoever about how to build a kernel driver for iOS, and such kernel driver can be run on jailbroken devices only anyways, this is crazy. It will take me more than an hour to even get started, and I don't think that any of the bidders will be faster than me.
What the heck is going on here? I have calculated that my minimum rate is $35/h. Otherwise it is better for me to get an employment position, even if my work load is optimal, my overhead is minimal and I'm never sick, now matter how many or how few hours I actually work. (Country: Austria, EU)
And are there any platforms for freelance iOS developers with rates that are not ridiculously low?
