I want to make a simple location based iPhone application that takes advantage of one or both of the following API's.
Concept: I want users to be able to leave a note for someone at a place where they think they met the Girl or Guy OF THEIR DREAMS. Someone they think they feel in love with instantly. It should be fairly simple.
UI: User check into a location (restaurant or street corner) and leaves a message (see blockchalk API). The user describes the person they saw and can leave their contact information (Facebook or Twitter). Anyone can view these messages as they walk down the street to see if anyone has left any messages that are about them.
The user interface will look and feel very similar to FourSquare, but less complicated. The site will only have one Badge.
1. Looking for love (badge example): http://static.lalawag.com/wp-content/uploads/playerplease1.png
This badge only shows on a user profile if they have left a love note somewhere around town looking for someone they think they may have seen that they like.
I have designed the project storyboard to make this process as simple as possible. I have done it in Powerpoint to include notes and directions on every way to build this app. I am not a graphic designer, so the design needs major help.
If there is one Application on the iPhone you should download to understand how this works, it is FourSquare and it's API's. Besides this, the Apple Geo location APi is also extremelly important. Also, I got the basic idea for this concept from Craigslist's missing connections site: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/cgi-bin/personals.cgi?category=mis
I will mail you the attachment and let me know if you have any questions. Also, if you think you can improve on this idea, I am open to any suggestions.
Simple enough? This should be a breeze for any iPhone Dev. I am an iPhone dev myself, just don't have time on my hands to complete this.
