Looking for an iphone developer that is able to write a badge api for the following scenario:
We need a badge added to our app icon when a new listing or an inactive listing is activated (example: bed and breakfast) is added to our database. The freelancer has to write the API and integrate this in a project file. The badge number displayed on the iPhone icon is extracted from our database. Our database has a field "property id number (pid)" in the table "properties". The field pid is incremented automatically when a new listing is added.
However some of the properties are not active so they should not be included in the "total" number of properties. The properties table also has a field called "hold". When hold = 1, the property is active. When an inactive listing is activated, it should also add a badge number to the icon. (It doesn't matter if it was active before and de-activated just so that it's displayed again when the listing is activated)
The functionality should be as follows:
A: When a "new app user" installs the app, the badge should say the total number of active listings. As soon as the app user opens the app, the badge disappears. (We are open to suggestions)
B: When a listing is activated in the database, the badge should add a 1 to the icon. The badge should be added when the app is closed or open. (Push notifications ???)
C: When the app user opens/displays the app, the badge should disappear. (Again, open for suggestions)
The freelancer accepting this job has to:
a: write a working api
b: use your own database table created just for this project
c: create a working xcode demonstrating above capability.
We are open to suggestions. Communication is everything. Skype preferred.
Thanks for bidding.
