Uber started the development of so-called on-demand economy with a wide range of services and goods provided immediately. On-demand apps are breaking into the market at a high pace. There are taxi apps, food apps, delivery apps, beauty apps, and even dog-walking apps.

The main idea of any Uber-like app is to match customer’s needs for goods and services with the third-party providers like drivers, restaurants or dog-walkers. Often, there are two variants of apps for download from the market – one meant for customers and another one for service providers.

Here is a list of the most popular categories of on-demand apps represented on the market:

  • Delivery apps render such services as transportation, courier, food delivery, home moving.
  • Rental apps provide services of accommodation, booking or renting cars and buying tickets.
  • Home service apps are represented on the market with the laundry, dog walking, cleaning, cooking, and any household fixing or mending apps.
  • Healthcare apps match patients to the doctors whose medical consultation they need, users can get either online consultation or offline check-up depending on their condition.
  • Educational apps help users find a teacher or a tutor for online or offline study.
  • Fitness app matches those who want to stay fit with personal trainers.
  • Beauty apps make it possible to receive all kinds of beauty services anywhere be it office or a hotel room.

All successful on-demand apps have one common trait: they deliver services that people use frequently. There is no use in developing an app that people might need to use only once a month. The more frequently people might feel a need for a specific service, the better. Some Uber-like apps are not represented well enough in certain regions, which gives a chance to startupers to satisfy a current need for on-demand services.

Nothing can be better than getting a review from our happy clients
who recommend us and trust us their business.

I think they do great work. I haven’t yet given them something that they were unable to do. Great
My Project with GBKSOFT gave me the ability to develop my software while keeping a busy schedule. Ana, who was my project manager, was very professional and was always understanding of my vision and what I wanted. I would recommend GBKSOFT again to any other company or person who has a vision for their web application. Thank you GBKSOFT! Recommend
They write clean code, adhere to deadlines, and communicate extremely well. I strongly recommend anyone from the GBKSOFT agency and hope to work with them again myself. Clean Code

One word...EXCELLENT.
Very well thought out and articulate communication. Clear milestones, deadlines and fast work.Patience. Infinite patience. No shortcuts. Even if the client is being careless (me). The best part...always solving problems with great original ideas, especially with this strange project where we are making up new words every day!
GBKSOFT’s performance has been very strong. We've referred them twice, which says all anyone needs to know about them. A referral is the ultimate signal we can give that these guys are great. Strong
GBKSOFT did a good job to manage the project. They put in a good effort to communicate with us and make it easier for us to communicate with developers. Good Job
I’ve been using GBK Soft for the past 3 years and they have been great. Communication is unparalleled to other app development companies. I’ve continued to return to them to improve my iOS app countless times and I will continue to do so in the future. I highly recommend this company! Improve
They proved to be very good and they’re very reliable as well. They are quite conscientious. They will go the extra yard to make sure we're happy. Reliable
More good work from team GBKSOFT. All well executed. The support within GBKSOFT is excellent. Communication is good too, spoken English as well as written. Support
