This is a yellow pages related iPhone app. Please bid only if you have experience in Map integration and working with latitude and longitude of passed addresses. The user is prompted to select the center for finding the businesses around mobile location or an address entered by him. Once that information is given to our server, you would get xml feeds for displaying the data. The splash, logo and information needed to submit the app would be provided by you. Please Note: An app rejected by Apple would not be funded. The icons displayed can be replaced with anything you have in your library or you can create of your own, but they should be consistent and appealing in look. I’m ok with the look changes as long as you improve them. Below is the description of main elements. Attached Image must be looked and read completely before starting the project. below is the description of various slides shown in the mockup.
There should be a default splash designed by the freelancer. A feed would be provided to verify if there is any other splash should be displayed instead of the default one.
2. Search Page + Category Page
This page has two options to use. Either the "My Location" or "Address". User should be prompted to ask for using his/her location. If "My Location" is selected then Address Text box should be cleared and default text information should be entered ("Enter Address, City, State or Zip Code"). User should not move forward if the address entered is not valid (latitude and longitude is invalid). There is small space at the bottom to display another ad with image, optional url and optional text. Please let me know the best size for it and I would make the feed for that.
3. List Page
Once the “Select Category” button is pressed the user is prompted to select category and feed should be called to get results. The results would be in XML format having all the needed information. You can see each business has image, map, face book, twitter, send through email, add favorite, website and coupon icons. For more information please see the slide.
4. Map View
You can move back and forth from list view to map view. These views are also displayed when user clicks on the favorite button. The only difference would be that while displaying favorites, center of the radius is not displayed on the map. Also, the distance from the center is not displayed in list view when favorites are displayed.
5. Business Page
User comes to this page from the map or the business list page, upon clcking on the business. This displays all the information about the business. You can report or update the information about the business by clicking on the button at the top right. Business can be added to the favorites also from this page.
6. Add Button at the bottom menu
This lets people add the business or report/update the existing business. If this page is prompted by existing business then current information should be prefilled and if it comes from the Add button at the bottom, then fax, photo and information are optional. This information should be sent to company (us) through email with photo attached to the email.
7. About Us
About us should be displayed using a feed having just question and answer elements in an xml.
Warnings while building app, memory leaks in the code and very slow app would not be something we are looking for. Images, code and splashes etc would our property. App should work on all versions of iphones and it would be your responsibility to get it approved. Unapproved app would not be funded. Thus please code it in a fashion that Apple accepts it.
My budget is $300 - $400. Anything beyond that might not help you get the bid. But once this project is done successfully, I would have something new for you. Thanks for bidding.
