We have a php-based application that does appointments. The workflow is already defined and working inside the php system, called DI.
We need an iPad app that will connect to DI, retrieve all appointments [APIs exist already] and display them on the screen.
If a customer shows up and doesn't have an appointment that app needs to search for that customer and, if found, create an appointment.
If the customer is not found, then create the customer and then the appointment.
All the functions above already have APIs and we have the entire workflow written in html5/jquery mobile.
We need to add to that the ability to take photos and upload them attached to the appointment.
Total number of screens: 5-6 [appointments list, search, add customer, add vehicle, add/edit appointment, view past appointments].
Design of the app is very simple - no graphics - just regular dialog/lists and colours for type of appointment.
Previous experience on developing for iOS is required - quick development necessary.
