Project Description


spread worlds mobile phones with animations triggered by SMS and become famous in the end


think of the following:

you point your internet browser to a website

on that website you subscribe to a channel e.g.: "pittsburg steelers"

you download a jar/jad file to your mobile phone

from now on, whenever the steelers score, your mobile phone plays the animation and some sound


this project is about the mobile application only. the webserver is done in a seperate project.

the application should be able to:

- receive sms (eg. according to this article [url removed, login to view])

- play svg files fullscreen (eg. by using this: [url removed, login to view]) depending on the content of an sms

- switch on the phones backlight

- play sound depending on the content of an sms

- has to be midp2 compatible. if your bid offers midp1 compatibility it will be superior to comparable bids not offering that.

- has to download (eg using any configured internet profile) the proper svg and audio files if requested by a configuring sms

- has be able to hold and distinguish between multiple svg and audio files (in case somebody likes to cheer for the steelers and the Buffalo Bills)

- has to display some text comming from the sms. text should be displayed before, on top or after the animation.

all configuration has to be done via website.

the only human interaction the mobile application needs is enable, disable and mute, unmute.

the server should be notified if the application is enabled and disabled in order to stop or start sending messages. to achieve that, the application has to connect to the internet.

the mobile os has to know about the application handling the sms in order to be able to start it if it is not running. ([url removed, login to view])

definition of the sms-format will pe part of the job.

what we need is a format allowing an abstract "event-framework". we will not stick to soccer scores ;-)

the sms-format must consider a section for additional information.



1. Clearly commented and well structured source code.

2. Complete documentation in clear and concise English or german explaining all aspects of the source code and with particular attention paid to the methods used for the event framework. Assume this document is aimed at a competent programmer.


Interim milestones will be required in order to check on progress and a demo will be required prior to payment.

the animation player will be tested against the samples on [url removed, login to view]

the first milestone will be the sms-format description.
