    NightSkyDev is an excellent developer, providing insightful suggestions for improving the application. This was a collaborative project, and he worked in a timely fashion. The project was also multi disciplinary, with android software, API calls and interfacing with hardware systems. Highly recommended.

    I am impressed with the knowledge, expertise, professionalism and commitment of NightSkyDev. Although this was a small project, he executed it with utmost professionalism.

    Hi! I browsed and found your profile. I&quot;m reaching out because you&quot;re located in the U.S. and appear to be experienced. The app I am trying to developer is very simple in concept and functionality - I just want to display an ad when the phone is first unlocked. The ad can be swiped away to reveal the actual lock screen. To me this sounds very simple, but please correct me if I am mistaken.Please respond if you are interested in working on this project. I am open to discuss the fee arrangement.Best Regards,Shariff

    I have developed a popular app, DroidTV, but I no longer have time to keep up with development and need help from a reliable, expert Android developer. You can see the app on Amazon at and check out discussions about it on the group at have quite a backlog of development items to be done, but the initial ones include:• Complete development of in-app purchase for Google, Amazon, and PayPal. Already coded, but some bugs remain that need to be resolved.• Ensure properly supported on Kindle Fire HD (may just be settings on the store)• Orphaned PVR folders may be left behind during external SD memory search• Better support for high resolution tablets and phones• Mark existing media as download ASAP on registration to keep from blocking downloads• Re-download recordings if missing when access is attempted (i.e. if manually removed by the user)

    Описание проекта: This is a repost!I need an application that can send/receive calls through SIP (Can use any sip stack like sipdroid) and forward it to the GSM network. The application should then forward the audio and convert from SIP to GSM and vice versa.The app should be able to run on cheap devices (+-100$).I was thinking on a way to emulate a headset and set it as default, so just need to initiate a call on gsm network using core android functions and audio will be automatically forwarded. Maybe this is a solution.

    Basic Summary: With NFC devices becoming more available to the public, I was inspired to create an app which tracks the equipment/exercises one performed at the gym. In my mind I see it like this, after downloading the app it runs in the background. When the user enters the gym, there are numerous NFC tags around the gym which begin the workout, as the user moves around to different equipment, they click the NFC sticker on the machine and it asks the users how many sets and how many reps they will be doing, the user enters the data and continues their workout. At the end of the workout, the user finds an &ldquo;end workout sticker&rdquo; or simply does the operation manually. I want the app to then keep track of workout duration and also give the user the ability to save and share the workout with other members of a particular gym. Furthermore, the user is able to access and examine his prior data for every machine. Business plan:Understanding my business plan is critical in the development of this application. The app will be free for everyone but the gym will by the preprogrammed stickers for the exercise machine. Therefore, I need the app to allow for expansion of equipment. I want to be able to easily add a machine, and encode a NFC sticker without having to update the app.Admin Interface:I&rsquo;m going to need an admin interface to add machines to the whole database but additionally, I want each gym owner to be able to sign into to their admin accounts and be able to see information about their gym users. Design:I will handle all concept work and want my developer to give feedback on their ideas for layouts. Once we decide on a layout, I will handle all graphic work needed for the application. Conclusion: Obviously, this is just the basics of my application and once I hire a developer I wish to be able to expand on some additional ideas. What I am looking for in a developer: 1.Communication is important, there are many ideas which are hard to communicate through text and therefore, being able to video call periodically is a must. 2.A long term relationship. Android is the only major platform pushing NFC right now, but when apple finally integrates it into the iPhone, I would need an iPhone application immediately.3.Lastly, pride in the product is important. I will pay more for a developer who is interested in the overall goal than one who simply wants to build it quickly but not perfectly.

    I dont have any technical skills in developing an app, i just had an idea i would like to see formed into an app with the help of professional app developers. So this is my idea: An app where you daily set your mood of the day by clicking on a emoticon or a smiley that represents your mood of the day, i would like the appto offer a number of different emotions to choose between. The appplication will save your everyday emotion, and the user will be able to browse back to look at his or her previous emotions.

    I want an app Android menu but not in cloud (sync with dropbox or similar) to give the opportunity to the customers to choose the meal or beverage from a tablet with exciting photos that push you to order. Main features:The main view will be the list of categories. Clicking on it will open the meals or beverages list with small photos, title and prices. Clicking on a small photo or title will open the detailed page with big size photos. Multilingual front end: the selected language appear all the time in a corner (the flag), when click pop-up a list to change (between English, French, German, Spanish and Italian but not limited).4 levels of users (admin, waiter, registered user, user). For waiter will be active the table selector, a feature to able, unable or modify items from the menu. Also the cart and billing area will be active too. Billing area not implies a card processor (maybe in the future).For registered user will be active the cart area that will give the possibility to send the order to the kitchen. This feature will be reserved to regulars clients, registers previously. As user could only view the meals with details but will not be able to select table, use the cart or billing area.Each meal will be described with full details and photos. Each meal will be assigned to a category. The meals will switch from a category to another. A special category will be used to special events as Christmas, Easter or local events. In this category only could be assigned meals that already &quot;existing&quot; to an ordinary category. The same database will be used for the web page (menu section) to be able to change at the same time on the web page too.The app have to run in the restaurant server (localhost) and all the time will sync with Dropbox (or hosting services) but when internet connection is down the app is still working. Two printers for bar and kitchen will be used. The app will split the beverages and meals to send to the right printer. More details on request or to the winner.
