Overview: I require a piece of software, which enables customisable pop-up reminder cards on a users screen.
A reminder card (like a Post-it note) pops on the screen after a set amount of time (user adjustable). The reminder card needs to remember its pop up position as well as have different pop–up effects, ie: zoom in, fade in, spin in, drop in, twirl in, similar to MS office assistant.
The piece of software will use a wizard to allow the user to pre-design the reminder cards (up to at least 10 different cards at one time).
Users must have the ability to load their own images as card backgrounds from the creation wizard. These pictures will also need to be scaleable. I will supply an image for the wizard background.
The software will be distributed via the internet, preferably as an executable file.
Must be able to work on Windows XP and Windows Vista.
Software will need some type of security feature to prevent unauthorised distribution etc. This could be in the form of a serial number for example.
Card size will be either adjustable or selectable from a range of sizes. It must be (240x180 pixels max)
The software user will be able to:
Choose how often they want their reminder card to pop up.
Choose how it enters onto their screen eg: dissolve in, twirl in, zoom in, etc
Select from a range of given photos (included in the install file) or use their own photo as a background to the card.
Select from a range of reminder statements or create their own, up to 200 characters.
Choose the fonts and the text colour.
I will supply templates of how I would like the software interface to look.
This job must be completed by December 12 2007. Another very similar job will be on offer if I am satisfied with the end result of this one.
