• 10-100 Million downloads/users for the second year

Note: The app office location will be Dubai and would be used worldwide in a very high level to be capable enough to compete in the market.
I will need an app development company to develop and iphone and android app in the very near future.
The app will be similar to the [url removed, login to view] app and it will also include a payment platform (paypal, credit card). The app will be entirely designed by me and I will need someone to develop and execute my needs.
Please let me know if you require further information on these project.
