Core Features Needed for A UPSC Exam Preparation App

#1. E-learning (Access to books, videos and other study materials)

It is very important getting access to the study materials for the exams. For the UPSC exams the preparation for preliminary exam and the main exam will be different.

When you develop an exam preparation app it should provide access to PDF’s, videos, audios, word files, PowerPoints etc. It would be an alternative to the traditional book studying method.

#2. Mock Tests

One of the many challenges in UPSC preparation is to find the correct answer in the shortest possible time. Students can attain this by continuous practising with the help of mock tests.

The mock tests may be based on subjects or time duration.  The UPSC exam preparation app should provide the mock tests based on subjects/topics as well as time duration.

#3. News & Current updates

Reading daily newspapers and writing them in a book is something no UPSC aspirant would miss as part of their preparation. It will not only help them in written exam but also in their final interviews. The app must be implemented to get the latest news from news channels, newspapers & other important mediums.

#4. Book marking

Revision without a doubt plays a crucial role while preparing for UPSC exams. Students should be able to bookmark or save their findings for later reading/watching inside the UPSC app, so that it would be easy and convenient for them during the revision time.

#5. Live class

The UPSC exam preparation app must be able to stream live classes from the trainers / tutor for direct coaching because not everything the students learn from books is understandable. The app should also provide the students with the facility to ask questions & clarify their comments etc.

#6. Live Chat/forums/Quiz

Learning by discussing is the best way to prepare the UPSC exams. Live chats, forums and real time quiz programs would help the students to discuss, ask questions and provide the known answers. Not only will it help the brighter students but also the struggling ones as well. An UPSC app should provide this facility to students.

#7. Quick Assessment for Preliminary exams

Preliminary exams are objective type exams. Student can do the multiple tests based on subjects and time durations. The answers should be evaluated immediately, results including negative marks will be exhibited to student.

#8. Assignments for Finals

The final exams are in written format. The trainers / tutors can give assignments to the students and the upload their answers once they are completed.

The evaluation will be done manually by the coaches and they will provide rating for multiple evaluation parameters like understanding the question, important points, sentence forming, clarity in answers etc.

#9. Report Cards

The UPSC exam preparation app should record all the test results so that the students can understand how much they progressed overtime and what areas do they need to focus for better results. Students must keep their progress in a scoreboard for evaluation.

#10. Course Categorisation

While developing an UPSC exam preparation app you must give multiple course options to the students for their convenience. For instance, there could be Free trial, Modular courses and Tablet courses.

Free trials would allow students to understand how easy is it to enroll in the online courses and setup their preparation routine.

Modular courses specify a standalone main course of your selection; you can choose a course that suits your requirement and give full focus on that subject.

Tablet courses are combination of multiple course packages. This way, students can access and engage in hours of lectures that cover the comprehensive syllabus.

#11. Enabling Flexibility for Students

Regardless of the course, a UPSC exam preparation app needs to offer different accessibility options to students. Students can choose courses in the form of

  • Prime video (pre stored video) – For students who prefer to learn at their own time and convenience and doesn’t want to depend on a fixed schedule. It could be due to different reasons such as low bandwidth internet, inconvenient timing schedule or simply because they want to learn faster.
  • Live classes – Students who prefer to follow a fixed schedule and like to have interactive sessions with their teacher would find live classes a convenient option.
  • Test series – Students should be able to take tests by combining two categories. For example, prime video and test series for a complete course or for the selected subject.

These options give students all-important flexibility in an exam preparation app. They should also be able to:-

  • Select a single subject, a complete course or multiple courses
  • Access test series for whole course, multiple courses or for one subject only

How Much Does It Cost to Create an UPSC exam preparation App?

The expense of an UPSC exam preparation app can be placed somewhere in-between $18,000 and $20,000. The app publishing cost can vary depending on your choice

You need to purchase developer licenses from Apple and Google Play platforms. Then you need to buy a hosting plan to host backend/web server on the cloud. There are various standard 3rd party options for hosting. Most preferable are AWS and Digital Ocean.

Purchasing a Domain and getting an SSL to secure the domain is the third step and also an important aspect of getting your app a brand face. In addition to these, depending on the features required for your app, you will have to make purchases for SMS, Email, Deep Linking etc. from 3rdparties. For SMS we prefer Textlocal and for email we prefer SendGrid. These can be managed with a minimal cost to publish your app and can later be upgraded if required.

The rates of developers are as given below:

  • USA: USD 100 to USD 250 per hour
  • Europe: USD 70 to USD 200 per hour
  • Asia: USD 60 to USD 180 per hour

#3. App Complexity

Incorporating basic functionalities and features will keep your costs down. However, integrating advance and unique sets of features will skyrocket the budget. But the user experience will be one of kind.

Features Selected

Basic features are must-haves which make up the backbone of your ticket booking app. However, the integration of advanced features and functionalities will certainly have a cost attached to it.

If your budget is low, then you should stick to basic to medium features. However, if you have the leeway to splurge, incorporating a selection of advanced functionalities can make your app a standout.

Design Aspect

Despite the best features, a badly designed app will find no takers. Therefore, you need a solid user interface design supported by a strong and user-friendly navigation system. This enables the app to be more interactive in appearance.

Developer’s Cost

The development cost will vary on how you choose to go about it. An in-house team of resources hired on a contractual basis will require you to pay out monthly salaries until the app is built and launched.

  • USA: USD 100 to USD 175

Commission on Tickets

Every ticket booked via the ticket app earns a commission for the service provider. Usually, this cost is absorbed in the ticket price, but many platforms choose to be more transparent and highlight it as a separate ‘Convenience fee’. This is a continuous form of revenue that is generated from launch day.


When the app garners a significant user base, third-party advertisers can opt to buy media space on the platform. The ticket booking app can charge for this in-app advertising space basis the clicks that the ad gets.

Apart from these two methods, there can be other direct and indirect instruments for generating revenue from the platform. This will evolve as the app grows too.

The end user does not know the actual property name since the hotel or guest house is under a management contract with OYO.

The aggregator model helps OYO earn an approximate revenue of 22% in profit shares. The property owners who list their hotels and guest houses on the OYO platform generate traction and interest through more frequent traffic which otherwise would not have been possible for standalone hospitality establishments.

#2. Franchise Model

OYO presently operates on the franchise model where 90% of the revenue gains from hotel operations are shared with OYO by the property owners. The properties have to adhere to strict standards of operations where they have to stick to consistent levels of customer service to help grow the business.

uber eats app features

The Uber Eats app has three versions of features and functionalities. These include:

  • Customer version
  • Delivery version
  • Partner Restaurant version

Customer Version

Here is a list of must-have features on the customer version of the app:

#1. User Registration

Users can access the registration feature on the app’s welcome screen. The sign-up is a standard process of submitting minimum details that helps track the user’s movement on the app. Generally, it demands minimal details such as a valid email id or mobile number and password.

However, in recent times, this has been simplified further by the integration of Facebook or Google SDK that enables users to register using their Facebook profile or Google Account.

#2. Profile Management

Once the registration step has been successfully completed, users can progress towards customising their profiles. This can be done by the addition of photos, preferences, payment details, delivery addresses.

Users will also have the option to select their default settings such a delivery address or a payment method to make the process of ordering food quick and efficient.

Every time users log into the app, the platform automatically pulls in the default settings unless changed manually.

The app is designed to sync in with the location settings of your device in order to display the list of eateries that will be able to deliver to the given address.

This setting of the location can automatically change when the user is on the go if the app has integrated with your smartphone or laptop’s location too.

However, you can manually set the location by inserting a specific address on the app. This will highlight a list of restaurants that only delivers to that particular address.

#4. Search Field

Once the location has been confirmed, users can view a list of possible restaurants that deliver to their address. But an additional search field helps users to look up a specific eatery, cuisine or even a dish.

By looking at this estimated delivery time, you can decide on which restaurant to place the order from.

#6. Order Placement

There should be no complicated navigation when it comes to the order placement feature. Otherwise, you will bear a greater risk of losing out on valuable customers before they’ve completed with placing their orders on the app.

Once the user has zeroed in on the restaurant of choice, they should be able to quickly add their preferred items to the cart, customise them wherever applicable along with specifying the necessary quantities.

The next page should capture any specific instructions that the user wishes to share with the restaurant partner. The user can also select the option to have the order delivered or opt for a self-pickup.

The last step of order management is to verify the order summary. The user then moves on to the payment page to conclude the process of placing the order.

#7. Payment

The order can only be confirmed once the payment has gone through. The app should provide multiple gateways options to users in the form of processing it through credit or debit cards, food vouchers, eWallets, Paypal, cash on delivery, etc.

As the service provider, it the app’s responsibility to ensure that confidential financial information captured on the platform is protected with all the necessary security and encryptions.

The app should have the required governmental licenses to accept payment from users too.

#8. Order Tracking

On receiving confirmation of the payment automatically confirms the order too. Not only can you track when the restaurant accepts the order, starts preparing it but also monitor the order delivery in real-time along with details of the driver who has been assigned to pick-up it up.

The tracking for the delivery executive is done with Location API that can determine the delivery executive’s present location to let the app display an approximate delivery time.

#9. Notifications

You can keep your target audience engaged with your app by sharing constant news, updates and alerts. This can be done using the push notifications feature.

The notifications system can also function as an add-on support to real-time tracking in case the user does not have the app interface switched on post order confirmation. That’s why notifying users about order status via push notifications or SMS works perfectly.

#10. Rating & Reviews

After every delivery of order, the user gets the option to share their ratings and reviews on a number of key parameters such as user experience, delivery, food quality and more.

This is a key functionality of any app platform which can be synced in with the other key data to generate useful insights.

Allows the customers to leave detailed reviews also helps build trust not only for the app but for the partner restaurant as well. This can draw in new prospects who may be inclined to try out new joints.


Introducing a bookmark feature allows customers to quickly close orders especially if they are in a hurry. While it may not be an absolute must to have a functionality such as this, but it definitely serves as a value addition, playing a key role in revenue generation in the long-term.

#12. Order History

Users can view a list of their past orders from the Order History section. In fact, this feature can be further enhanced by incorporating a Reorder functionality if the user wishes to place the exact same order again in the future.

#13. Discount System

Food delivery apps must be accompanied with a strong discount and promotions feature as it can help draw in new customers and get existing users to keep placing orders. A promo code engine is a necessity that can boost loyalty ten-folds.

#14. Social Networks

Social media plays a huge part in a food delivery apps these days. A simple and direct integration with popular social media channels can drive users to share restaurant experiences and reviews with their social networks instantly.

Enabling this quick link not only works to promote the app platform but also helps to build customer loyalty in the long run.

#15. Loyalty Program

Delivery Version

Here is a list of must-have features on the delivery version of the app:

#1. Registration and Profile Set-up

Just like the customer version of the app, the delivery interface also involves a user registration and profile set-up process.

This is only specific to the delivery agents who will pick up order from the partner restaurant and transport it to the user’s given address.

Capturing key details is an important aspect of the setting up the profile as some of it will be displayed as part of their front-end profile to the user.

Once the profile is created, delivery agents get access to the system’s database and can track whatever orders that come their way.

#2. Order Management

Delivery agents are able to view new orders that need to be delivered. All relevant information can be accessed by using the ‘Go Online’ button.

Generally, delivery agents have the flexibility to accept and reject customer orders as per their convenience and availability. This can be done using the button and start accepting orders.

#3. Status Updates

Delivery agents can manage their status updates in real-time that also adds to the customer’s convenience. Clients are able to monitor and track their order processing with an overview on the waiting time too.

On delivering the order, the agent confirms its completion via the app platform. The client automatically receives this notification and also gets an alert to rate the experience.

#4. Delivery History

The delivery agent will be able to view the history of orders delivered by him or her. While a total overview is available, the information can be further filtered by the period of time.

#5. Earnings Screen

This is possibly one of the most important features on the delivery version of the app. The agent can keep a check of his daily, monthly and annual earnings.

The section can also display the current balance, recent transactions, promotions, and cashing out possibilities.

Partner Restaurant Version

The partner restaurant version of the app is more line with an admin panel. Restaurants use it to accept and process orders. The app provides relevant information of the delivery agent who has been designated to pick up the order and transport it to the end customer.

Here is a list of must-have features on the partner restaurant version of the app:

#1. Registration and Profile Management

This works exactly the same as the customer and delivery agent versions of the application. Other than signing up to register themselves, the only different in creating a profile on this version is that it is not relevant to an individual but an establishment.

Therefore, the restaurant, other than adding the necessary information such as their outlet name and location also uses this feature to upload their food and drinks menu along with brief descriptions if applicable, photos, reviews, etc.

#2. Content Management

Partner restaurants can use the Content Management feature to design communication that can promote their eatery to prospective clients. That includes updating the menu frequently, more photos of new dishes, customer reviews and ratings, along other things.

#3. Order Management

Every order that the restaurant receives can be managed through the Order Management module. Typically, the partner restaurant can view the following information on the panel:

  • Detailed view of the order
  • Update the status of the order and send out notifications to the consumer when it is accepted and to the delivery personnel when the order is ready to be picked up.
  • View the entire list of current orders

Once the order is prepared, it is instantly dispatched to the end customer via the delivery agent.

#4. Payments

Restaurants can keep account of their earnings via the food delivery app using the Payments module. Every transaction along with the order list is generally updated on this module in real-time basis.

Ever heard of Meesho? Today, it is one of the most successful stories in the space of reseller apps that describes itself as an online multi-vendor marketplace.

Imagine you want to create an app without the hassle of inventory or shipping and can start the business minus any significant investment. Sounds a little impossible, right? But apps like meesho has proven it can be done.

Let’s take a look at How To Create An App Like Meesho and its overall budget

Evolution of Meesho Reseller App

meesho - create an app

The foundation to create a reseller app like Meesho was a social cause. The founders wanted to create opportunities to build home-based businesses, giving individuals to earn from an additional income source.

They were primarily focussed on driving homemakers to start something on their own without any investment. The wave soon caught up with other small and medium sized businesses who were looking for online avenues to sell but did not have the funds to create an individual storefront on their own.

At the onset, Meesho started out with a limited set of popular product categories, namely fashion and electronics. In due course of time, with the traffic on the app skyrocketing, its users demanded much more. The expanded product categories now include:

  • Accessories
  • Household
  • Fashion for Men, Women and Kids
  • Kitchen item
  • Decoration
  • Gift
  • Cosmetics
  • Grocery and Essentials

With multiple rounds of funding from venture capitalist big-wigs like SAIF, Sequoia Capital, RPS Venture, Facebook and more, Meesho has raised approximately $215.2 million in total and achieved 50x growth in less than a decade.

With over 1 crore resellers listed on the platform, Meesho has achieved unimaginable success and a barrage of milestones. This has paved the way for many entrepreneurs to try their luck at setting up a similar mobile app like Meesho where they do not really need to create a full blown eCommerce website.

Now, let’s look at the important aspects to create a reseller app like Meesho and how much you should budget to create such a platform.

Analyze The Market

Before diving straight to the development phase, it is important that you analyse the market where you intend to deploy the app. Do a quick SWOT analysis which will help you to streamline the pros and cons of entering into this business.

Make a list of your immediate competition in the space and match them in accordance with your geographical outreach. You will face stiff competition from established players like Amazon which probably enjoys the bulk of the market share in the eCommerce space.

Having said that, a reseller app like Meesho has made a niche for itself and that’s where you need to focus your energies. You can create a similar Meesho app that offers unique and standout features with good, user-friendly design.

Decide Upon Your Niche

Think about how you wish to sell. Do you want to limit yourself to being a platform that connects local businesses to the neighbourhood or go all out to create an app that facilitates buying and selling without borders?

Zeroing in on the market is absolutely essential. This is the first step before you do anything else. Next, figure out the list of product categories that you want to highlight in the app. Get a team in place to develop merchandising for each individual category which should be ready before you launch the application.

Define Your Product

Chalk out the USPs of your app. Unless you adequately highlight what your app offers to the target audience, there is little chance that the platform will find any takers in the market after the launch. Concentrate on the benefits that can be most effective:

  • Best Quality
  • Best Quality-To-Price Ratio
  • Luxury
  • Aspiration
  • Must-Have

Define the value proposition. Answering these key questions can help expedite the process.

  • What product or service is the app platform selling?
  • Is there a defined list of benefits for the end user on downloading the application?
  • Who is the target audience?
  • Have you made your offerings unique in comparison to your competition?

In the case of reseller apps, it may be an upheaval task to come up with unique product features as the functionalities are pretty much standard across the board.

However, you can still add some kind of offering or value that makes it attractive for your target audience to download and start using your platform.

Ideas that you can debate about are:

  • Free shipping
  • Next-day shipping
  • Bonuses with a purchase
  • Money-back guarantee
  • Discounted prices
  • Customizability
  • Free product listings for sellers
