Mobile Application for Streaming Audio with Rhomobile or PhoneGap

  • Status Closed
  • Budget N/A

Project Description

Project is to use a Mobile Application Development Framework (at the moment I am favoring RhoMobile)

We are able to provide prospective service providers with pre-drawn layouts of the application including all of it's screens.

The reason that we are choosing a system such as Rhomobile is so that we can support:

- Blackberry

- Android

- iOS

- Windows Phone

- Symbian / Nokia

The application will feature:

- Audio Streaming from a Shoutcast AND Icecast server sending audio in MP3 and AAC (we have different streams for different channels)

- Podcast playing support (Podcast files to be pulled in via RSS

- Facebook Integration

- Twitter Integration

- SMS (in app but from Phone's SMS function) to the channel's studio

- Phone (in app) that redirects the action to the phone's dialer

- Email (in app) fed however is best

- Two (2) Static Text Pages

- Website Link (directs user to a specific website inside the mobile devices native browser)

- Settings Dialogue to control certain parts of the app

The application will have a pop up disclaimer the first time that it is run. Upon first run it must communicate back with a remote server to register that it has been installed (this is to do simple and anonymous install/usage tracking - needs only to feed back to the remote server initially on first run.


We have thought about having "in app" banner adverts rotating from our own ADserver. Is this allows by the various manufactuers and App Stores? Do they allow you to place your own advertising in the application?


1. We require the hand over of ALL code and "libraries, SDK's, etc" used.

2. We require that you provide us with full and detailed explanation on how we can install the required compiler software (Eclipse, etc) as well as how to properly configure any additional software, so that we may compile the application ourselves.

3. We have a very specific "configuration file" that we would like implemented into the application (at compiler level) which we can specify information such as:

- App's Icon (home screen)

- Streaming Server Type (Shoutcast or Icecast) - IF REQUIRED BY THE APP TO DETERMINE WHAT LIBRARIES TO USE

- Streaming Media Type either AAC+ or MP# - IF REQUIRED AS ABOVE

- Server URL (for Audio Stream)

- Podcast RSS Feed URL

- Facebook Page Feed URL

- Twitter Feed URL

- SMS Number for that function

- Phone Numbers for those function

- Email Addresses for those functions

4. In a separate file (simple rich content - titles sizes, bold, italics, etc) we want to be able to specify/change the static pages contained in this app

VERY IMPORTANT: The applications will need to be listed on the various mobile device "STORES" and as such if the applications are declined at any stage because of faulty coding or other development related issues, we will require you to fix them as part of this project.

LONG TERM RELATIONSHIP: We will require you to quote us on a future development cost (per hour or per item or however you work) which will cover us should we require you to add or change functionality to the application as we continue to develop it. Similarly, should any of the mobile developers change their OPERATING SYSTEM through an update (i.e. iOS version 5 to 6) and that update "breaks the application" - we will require you to step in and assist us in re-coding the application so that it is supported in the new version of that mobile devices OS.
