You have chosen to sponsor your bid up to a maximum amount of .
Our firm has a chat application that we want to make into an IOS version. Our chat servers are up and running. The chat app will use XMPP protocol to communicate. It will involve SSL/TLS encryption, image and video sharing.
We will provide you with the basic XMPP protocol. From there you must incorporate our features.
App will be compliant with the current IOS 7 requirements. Your final milestone payment will be awarded upon acceptance from Apple.
Communication shall be controlled by ports and server side controls. The app should not recreate the communication processes.
If possible, communication in sending direction should be encrypted differently than the receiving direction. This is open for discussion.
Those are the basic requirements of this application. You will want to design it in such a way that will allow for easy upgrades in the future. Since this app is or will be copyrighted, further specs will be revealed in a spec sheet upon award. You can be sure that we are not asking for any specs that are not possible as we have already completed most of them in experimental programming and know it is doable.
You will be required to heavily comment your programming so it can be interpreted later.
You will be sent a spec sheet which will contain phases of production (milestones) Once all bullets are complete in a phase, you shall be awarded your milestone. Failure to complete any bullet will postpone that milestone.
We are looking for a team that will dedicate themselves to the development of this app and meet their stated timeframes. We are flexible to a degree. Failure to complete in your stated time frame without a good reason will result in your dismissal from the project. You are either here to work or not.
BIDDING: if you cut and paste your bid, you will not be considered. You should explain your experience with XMPP and chat apps in your bid. This will help to prevent you from being fired because you have no idea what you are doing :). We are simply looking to get this right. Completion will result in a long term partnership and involvement in this project.
