We need a custom mobile app made, fast!
We need someone who is very experienced in coding for iOS to create a simple, polished, fantastic looking mobile app, in the visual style of Draw Something.

Read the description carefully. Please take careful note of both the list of required elements in the app, and our required UI standard. Make sure you can do all of these things.
If you think this project is potentially for you, send us a message with some examples of your previous work (UI examples particularly important), and if we like it we'll send you an NDA to sign, then disclose the project details in full. Also, feel free to ask us questions anytime!
-Someone who can not only program but can also do the UI design
-Someone who has at least 100 hours on elance
-Someone who has a 4.5-5 star rating
-Someone who takes pride in their work and makes polished looking products
-Someone who speaks English well
-Someone who is willing to continue to work for us after the launch of the app on updates etc on a per-hour basis. Make sure to include your estimated required future hourly rate in your reply!
SHORT DESCRIPTION OF THE APP
The app is very simple. A user opens the app, and performs a basic process consisting of not much more than pressing a few buttons. Each use will only be a couple of minutes long. There is only buttons, and text, with supporting graphics. As an example: A quiz app that asks the user two questions daily.
ELEMENTS OF THE APP
- ANIMATIONS: There's a few animations required, primarily a "processing" animation and a "processed!" animation. These need to be of very high quality
- TRACKING USER ACTIVITY: There are certain actions that a user can perform in the app which are tracked and uploaded to our servers. This is to be coded by you, and handled by us thereafter. All we need on our end is a daily list of people who performed certain actions, and at what time. Even a simple text document is would be all we need.
- DYNAMIC CONTENT: On the main page, there will be text which is updated daily by us. This must not require an app update, but simple be pulled from the web / a database / RSS feed or such.
- OPTIONAL DAILY NOTIFICATIONS: Users can choose the time of day they'd like to receive notifications, from within the app. If it is at all technically possible, we'd like these notifications to be customiseable by us every day. Let us know in your reply if you think this is possible!
- TOKENS: A few of the simple actions users perform award them tokens, which can be spent in an in-app token store.
- SIMPLE TOKEN STORE: All products in this store are digitally delivered and stocked / handled by us. All we need is for purchases to be tracked and uploaded to our servers so we can deliver them.
- POSTING TO FACEBOOK: Users have the option make a promotional wall post to facebook, from within the app. This also awards tokens, plus this action is submitted to the developers and tracked.
- ADVERTISING: The app is free, and ad supported. Advertising must be filled directly from the app, not using a mediation layer. EG 1) try to get an iAd fill, 2) if this fails, try to get an AdMob fill, etc
ON VISUAL STYLE
Everything visually about the app needs to be in the polished, colourful, cartooney style of draw something. Specifically the "processing" and "Processed!" animations need to be of the same calibre as the "Drawsome!" screen in draw something
***Play around and take a good look at draw something. if you don't think you can produce something of similar visual style and quality, don't bother applying***
HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO NEXT!
Please reply with examples of your previous work including any user interface or design examples you have done before. If we like your previous work, we will reply and give you more details.
Thanks a lot!
