Project Description

Thanks for your interest.

I need a developer to program an ebook reader for ios for a project that I’m working on. I want it optimised for the ipad, but it needs to work on the iphone, ipod touch and ipad mini as well.

Functionally, it will be similar to the Stanza ebook reader ([url removed, login to view]) with a few changes. For example, I do not need the annotation function of that reader but want better page transitions and cataloguing.

I definitely need it to be able to access a selection of free online libraries like Feedbooks and Smashwords, as well as at least one good ebook seller that allows the user to buy the latest ebooks available (like “The life of Pi” ebook for example). The target is to offer at least 2 million free books plus a selection of current ebooks that can be bought through the app from a good ebook seller.

It needs to support MOBI, PDF, TXT and ePub ebook formats and the app will be ad supported (probably through Admob) with push notifications used to offer other products and updates.

I had an enormous amount of trouble with a freelancer from another site, so I really want someone reliable with the ability to deliver on the project this time.

Please do not bid on this job unless you can confirm that:

-You have read the details of this project and can confirm that you have the ability to do the work within the time you promise, and at the cost you specify in your bid. (This includes properly presenting MOBI, PDF, TXT and ePub formats).

-You will work to an agreed milestone schedule that will include expected completion dates for each milestone.

-You will treat all our business dealings as completely confidential.

-You are capable of making the app access free online libraries (like Feedbooks and Smashwords) so that at least 2 million free ebooks will be available to the app user through the app. (Please also nominate which libraries you will interface with to show your understanding.)

-You are capable of interfacing with an existing online ebook store so users can buy the latest ebooks. (Please nominate which ebook store you can interface with to show your understanding.)

Also note that I have developed a detailed, screenshot by screenshot specification document of how the app should look, feel and function to make it as easy for you as possible, but am happy to make reasonable changes if it simplifies the programming task.

This will be the first of several projects and I hope to work with the winning bidder on all of these, among which, will be Android and Windows versions of this ereader.

Please start your bid with the word “whirlpool” to show that you have fully read the specifications above.

Thank you for your time.
