Is there a go-to place to find dependable, US based developers for a game (simple card game) that I want to make available on iPads and iMacs as an app or whatever it's called that would work on an iMac too. Everytime I post an ad somewhere, I get flooded with automatic replies. I'm looking for a US based (NYC area would be the best) person who is capable of making (and maintaining should there be issues) a reliable app.

Also, does anyone have a ballpark idea what a basic app costs to make....? I'm not nessesarily looking to sell it, at this point there are a few people very important to me that would enjoy it, so that's all I'm concerned with at this moment.

Thanks for any tips! :)

Ive had good luck with Elance, both finding workers and posting for my development.

Find, goto and regularly attend any local mobile developer meetings, meetups, seminars, etc., you can find around your locale. Usually nothing beats talking face to face to find a consultant you can trust, or for referrals to one who might meet your needs.
