I&acirc;??m sending this request to you because I found you on the list of recommended iPhone developers on freelancer.com.
We are a young startup from Germany developing a new cloud messaging service called &acirc;??appug&acirc;?? (i.e. the &acirc;??app&acirc;?? with the &acirc;??pug&acirc;?? &acirc;?? the funny looking little dog).
Because appug relies on a sophisticated app, we are looking for a young, professional, ambitious and honest iPhone developer who can support us.
In the past, we have already hired a freelancer to develop the first part of this app. Unfortunately, this freelancer has not delivered the desired results, and has also taken the advantage of our growing business relationship in order to ask for more and more money for less and less work.
That&acirc;??s why we are considering to change our app developer.
However, we are not sure whether we can dare to make this step.
So we are suggesting the following:
&acirc;?¢ We would like to pay you in order to look closer at the xcode source of our existing iPhone app (kind of "mini code review")
&acirc;?¢ We suggest that we pay you a couple of hours of your time. Please let us know how much time you would like to spend looking at our code (3 or 5 or 10 hours?) The budget of this project is just a teaser. If you agree we will create a new [url removed, login to view] project and hire you.
&acirc;?¢ If you want, we also give you full access to our developer account at Apple
&acirc;?¢ But before we give you the source code and the Apple account, we would like you to sign a short non-disclosure agreement (NDA) which says that you are not allowed to mess around with or code, to forward it to any third party or to use it by yourself.
&acirc;?¢ Because we have made some bad experiences in the past we would also ask you to disclose your real world identity (full name and address) &acirc;?? in turn we also disclose our full identity, of course.
&acirc;?¢ In the first time, we would like to work on the [url removed, login to view] platform only. Although we would like to know how we can contact you directly (email or phone), we would like to avoid working outside freelancer.com.
&acirc;?¢ After signing the NDA and sending it back to us by fax we will transfer the money and we will send you the source code and the account data.
&acirc;?¢ By the way, for our local tax authorities we will need a formal invoice document for any amount of money we are paying. So you would need to issue invoices or receipts with the following content: your name and address; our name and address; what you have done when; what it has cost; whether or not your local VAT is included; your unique invoice number, the invoice date, your tax number, if existing...
What do you think?
Are you interested?
Looking forward to your response
