Outsourcing iOS development

Hi,

We've just opened up private beta for Mammoth at mammothhq.com (don't all
go and sign up right away now). Its a collaboration product, and I'd be
happy to hear your feedback on it.

Who here as experience with outsourcing iOS development? Quite a few of our
users are requesting an app.
So we're thinking of starting with getting a basic app developed, simple
list-based interfaces, where users can see what they're working on, with
authentication and push notifications.
I'm looking into my network to find an iOS developer, but also wanted to
check if someone here can recommend a development firm.

What should I expect it to cost?
How much time should it take to be ready (not including App Store approval
time)?

Thanks,
Karan

-- I imagine others on this thread may at some point consider hiring a dev
company to help with tech needs, so I'll include my response here to
everyone --

Really can't sing our team's praises enough, as most of us are
former/current entrepreneurs who look at any project from the perspective
of the founders, not as mere contractors. We frequently help clients, many
of whom are startups, not only to build their initial products, but also to
connect with VCs and full time talent when appropriate. We are contributing
writers to periodicals like TechCrunch, Forbes, Wired and others, so we
definitely stay abreast with the latest technologies and trends in the
community.

We are a small team so we only take on select projects, and usually only on
a referral basis, but if you (or anyone else) are interested in talking,
give me a shout!

Shane
