The project currently has a HTML5 responsive website created - there are no issues with this; we have managed to port this website to PhoneGap Build and successfully compile the native app; however when the app is minimised the audio does not play in the background - this is a limitation of PhoneGap Build.
It is favourable if the project can be delivered using a multiplatform solution which could provide an Android app, however the core focus is iOS. There is no JSON webservice available which will be an issue if native app only is the only option.
The app should be created with some additional native functionality to simply showing a website - it should have a dock/menu.
The app should also function as a portal to multiple music websites with a start screen > site selection screen (contents to be loaded from remote data file) > view selected website; the app should remember which site the user last visited.
I have attached a flow diagram to clarify this.
Direct work with individual freelancers only; no agencies or outsource companies will be considered for this project; there is potential to develop a working relationship into maintaining the app code on a regular contract and merit will be based on freelancer feedback with most importantly good communication skills. Preferably you will be working solely on this project to deliver as fast as possible however it is important that work is not compromised for super fast delivery.
Communication is a MUST. As I said, I will provide you all the information and explanation of the existing mobile website and can provide you with access to the PhoneGap Build project (if required) as well as the being available on Skype to be able to hold conversations to convey, discuss and accurately scope the project. It is an expectancy, that you to respond to emails quickly and efficiently and understand tasks clearly.
Bids from users towards Europe, UK & US are favoured due to avoiding time difference, or that you can work to UK times.
