Rewrite existing iPhone app (prototype)

Contest Brief

I have an iPhone app available in the app store that needs to be rewritten. This contest is for building a working prototype that showcases your graphic design and user interface design skills. I don't expect the entire app to be rewritten. I don't expect working code. What I want to see is new graphics and a new user interface. I will engage the winner in an on-going project to finish and enhance the app.

Note: The app is only available from the US store. I've attached a screen shot of the main page in case you can't view the actual app. I've also attached a flash demo video. Drag the [url removed, login to view] file into an empty browser window to view.

The app is an airfare price search. You can find it in the store either under its current name "Airfare Alerts by Vigilance" or its soon to be released name of "Vigilance: Airfare Edition". Either way, the app is published by Nerd Power Incorporated.

To win this contest, the app must have the following parts.

1. App icon
2. Splash screen
3. Main page

For the app icon and splash screen, I'll be judging you on your graphic art skills. The main page will be used to judge your user interface design. Please use the app name "Vigilance: Airfare Edition" for the splash screen.

The main page should accept inputs for departure airport (from), destination airport (to), departure date, and return date. There should be one output, the lowest price. The user should be able to enter the 4 required fields and in return be given a price.

Once a price is displayed, there should be an indicator that alerts are turned on for this airfare search. The user should be able to deactivate alerts.

The from and to airports don't have to be a complete list. Just choose 3-5 to use in the prototype. I'm more interested in functionality rather than content.

    #16 New rounded font used for the title of the app. Let me know if it's better so I can change it to all instances.

      Personally, I'm in favor of the font I used in the first design. It conveys a certain level of reliability and security of the service.

    Hi there! Sorry I didn't enter this competition sooner, but I just found it yesterday.
    I worked on my designs all day, today and I hope you will find them suitable for your app.
    I have uploaded two versions of the main screen with different functions. (#13 is more complex and maybe exceeds the requirements of your app and #14 is based on your simple search and book a flight functions)
    You will also find the app's icon in #15 and the splash screen in #12.
    I really hope you will like me designs and I also hope I will get some feedback from you, given the fact that these are my first tries and maybe I'm missing something.

    Kind regards,
    Passion2Excel

      I'm sorry but I don't think your artistic style is a fit with this application. I don't mean to be rude or cause offense but thank you for your understanding.

    you just need graphic assets for app or the app itself ?? i can create the graphic for you

      I need both and would love to find someone who can do both but this doesn't seem to be very common. I'm going to select the best submission for graphics and UI design for this contest so being able to code the app isn't necessary.

    Hi CH,

    this sounds like an interesting contest :)

    I cannot find your current app neither on appstore, nor in google search (there might be some location restrictions) - so can you provide some screens on it? Also, please consider sealing the contest, thanks :)

    Cheers,
    Alex

      Ah shoot, you're right. The app is only available from the US store. I'll post a screen shot of the main page. Tonight I'll see if I can make a demo video and post that as well.
