This is going to be a relatively simple iPhone application that will incorporate the iPhone automatic geographic locator… when someone downloads and installs the app, First of all, please download the app called “Offender Locator Lite.” I suggest you install and familiarize yourself with said app prior to bidding on this project. Additionally, please do not bid on this project unless (i) you have a lot of experience creating iPhone applications and have proof of your applications and (ii) you have capabilities of creating a very professional design. I cannot afford to pay for this app to be created by someone who does not know what they are doing and creates an app that crashes every time users try to use it. Also, I need someone who is going to give me their 100% attention. I am a very patient buyer, but I am tired of coming to an agreement with a coder, only to hearing every excuse in the book for why there are delays. I need your guarantee that this project is the only one that you will be working on. Also, I need a coder who is not afraid to use their brain and recognize if a function does not work properly or if something can be done better. I also expect daily feedback. Prior to bidding and sending me a PM, please make sure that you have read this entire description, and make sure that you indicate in your PM that you have read the entire thing.
When you open the app, it should give the user a few different options for search… First it will allow the user to search based upon 1. Current Location, which will allow you to search for celebrities based upon your current location, at which point the user will be asked if he would allow for us to have access to his current location. If he chooses yes, then it will gather all the addresses close to the user’s current location and provide them to him in a list format of all the celebrity’s names. If the user clicks on a name, it should show the address of the user. There should also be a button that says “Map it” which will display directions from the user’s current location on the typical map that is used on for directions on the iPhone. Also, by default the user will have the results listed as search results based upon which is closest to where the user is (and it should have the distance to how far that user is… just like Offender Locator Lite). There should also be an option of viewing a map with pins in it of all the celebrities in that area.
User should also be able to search by 2. Enter Address, which will allow the user to enter any address in the country, and then it will search for celebrities around the address that the user entered just like the search from Current Location.
User should be able to also search by 3. Celebrity Name, which will allow the user to enter a celebrity’s name to search for. If a celebrity has more than one address, which many of them will, it should display all three of them in the list and then the user will be able to click each one of them to see where the address is.
The top should have a horizontal task bar that has a button for “Back” which will take the user to his previous page. It should also have a button for “Home” which will take the user to the Home page that has the three choices for how the user would like to search.
I have a list of about 1,000 – 2,000 celebrities that I will need for you to upload to the server after you create the app. These will be the initial celebrities that will be on the server when we release the app.
I will need an admin area that will allow me to add new celebrities and edit old celebrities. That is very important.
Aside from that, this is just like any other app that allows users to search for locations around them. I don’t want to get too complicated with this. I would recommend installing the Offender Locator and any other locator like Starbucks locator, etc., to see how this is supposed to work. This is a pretty simple app and should be complete within 2-3 weeks. This needs to be compatible with ALL versions of the iPhone.
Good luck bidding!
