Looking for experienced programmer to build an app that will run on Android and will be ported to iOS too.
Application will be written in Java preferably so it can run on all the devices//tablets.
App's target group is assist visitors-tourists to explore a new place during their vacations.
Goals: App is going to interact with a PostgreSQL DB & Map-server containing GIS data & products lists. Maps, photographs, coordinates, running arcGIS & [url removed, login to view] & PHP/mapscript,
Application's purpose is to deliver fast accurate generic interest information on the users device about products and the exact location on the map. What i mean generic information: Using a Map-server which will have added Points Of Interest "POI", we will add products listings from current shops & businesses on specific locations with links and the app will present these shops on a map.
App must offer to the user search options for products & points of interest, list the results and when the user selects a specific POI then the app will show him where is it on the map & and how far from it's current location. GIS data will be provided.
App has to offer preconfigured thematic listings. -->Meaning: We will creating "mode1": mode1 will show to the user specific types of information & suggestions, for example "mode1" will show cultural & archaeological POI and "suggest" a schedule for the user to visit specific POI. "mode2" will suggest & list POI for dinner & lunch. "mode3" will suggest & list POI for having fun, for example bars, clubs etc..
App must be able to receive daily updates so we can offer to the user daily offers and coupons.
Project is almost ready to start and we are on the pre-develop phase. So i need programmer who knows what he is doing to work together from design and build an awesome user friendly app to deliver all that content and more, in time.
I will answer only to those PBM's that are professional and show me that you have the knowledge & experience to build an app like this, and that you are willing to continue the support of the app after it's build. Beside project build i will also need you to maintain the code & write upgrades, so this position will be permanent offering you a steady income each month beside the development fee.
Thats all for now.
Thank you in advance.
