Project Description

I need a custom app designed for both Android and iPhone. Android version of the app is the first deliverable and should be relatively straight forward. iPhone version should also be scalable for use on iPad.

Required functionality:

App must launch when an incoming phone call is detected from specified telephone number(s).

When incoming call is detected from specified telephone number, it will launch a half screen overlay window (similar to the Android app "Current Caller ID". The overlay will display a designated line of text, a small image in the upper left corner, and buttons to accept or ignore the call.

Once the call is answered, the overlay should expand automatically to full screen. The expanded area will include an embedded live video feed from an IP camera, as well as two buttons. One button will end the call and close the app window, and a second button will be configured to send a specified DTMF (touch tone code) after two presses (FIRST PRESS to launch a "Are you sure? Press again to confirm" message. SECOND PRESS to actually send the DTMF (touch tone code).

The app should also have some logging features, such as logging the date/time of each incoming call from the specified number. The app will pull 4 pieces of data from an admin website/database: 1) The incoming telephone number that will launch the app 2) The IP address of the IP cam to be displayed in the overlay 3) A text string for the top of the overlay 4) The URL for a small image to be displayed in the overlay. The database connection must be secure.

Lastly, I was told that the iOS has an API limitation that an app cannot sleep and be launched upon action of an incoming phone call. If this API limitation cannot be worked around with the latest iPhone iOS API, then the iPhone version of this app may need to use a push notification (with user acceptance) to launch an inbound call. I was told that this would work with some VOIP type of service. I will award this project based on the expertise of the developer to determine the best solution to implement this functionality on iPhone platform. iPhone version of the app will be the 2nd phase of the project.
