Develop a mobile application to deploy on iPhone and Android that meets our supplied requirements documentation. We have defined the requirements in terms of what information we need the app to collect and submit but will need the winning bidder to "fill in the gaps".
This project is all encompassing and the winning bidder will be expected to do all the necessary work to deliver an app that runs on iPhone and Android at a high-quality level. Of course, two different code bases will probably be required since the app is meant to be a "native" app that runs on two different platforms.
Please break-down your bid in these categories:
Requirements - duration/cost to evolve the requirements to a state ready to begin specification/design
Specification - duration/cost to develop detailed software specification that meets the requirements i.e. details of communication between mobile app our web server etc.
Architecture - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_architecture
Design - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_design
Implementation and Integration - the actual coding and getting the app to work
Testing - developing a test strategy and related test plans, communicating the results of testing to provide assurance the apps work as required and are suitable for their intended purpose
Deployment - getting the apps published via the official iPhone (Apple Store) and equivalent Android app store.
