Mobile app design

I am looking for a local developer skilled in iOS and graphic design / layout who is interested in more than just a simple transactional design project but who could imagine taking part ownership in a new business idea.

The idea is related to the recruitment / interviewing space and is essentially about helping people find likeminded people for specific tasks. The first phase of the project will be quite simple - it is really about creating an app where people register a profile and are subsequently able to search and send out contact requests to people who have similar profiles. The beauty of this project is that I approximate it will only require about 100-150h of initial development time to for the first proof of concept stage (where we start monetizing).

The second and third phase will require a great deal more development, but will also increase the revenue stream.


I am looking for a skilled developer who can assist in building a web-based backend as well as constructing/designing an iPhone app. If successful I will later need help in developing the actual website and iPad app.

The software will consist of a quite simple database with user profiles and roughly 10-20 fields stored for each user. There will be two main functions:

1 - to find a long-term match, i.e. register in database and allow users to search through the database for a good match. Once an interesting profile has been found you can send a contact request and if accepted Skype contact details will be exchanged.

2 - to find an immediate match, i.e. register yourself as "currently looking" in the database. The system then links up users depending on how similar their profiles are and users can accept or reject their match.

For the 1st functionality:
Through the app the users will be able to register themselves and search for other similar users as well as exchange contact details and schedule times with each other.

For the users to communicate with each other the app will require that the user has skype installed. A developer who is able to create the ability for users to "add user on Skype" or similar would score extra points.

For the users to schedule times with each other it would be very valuable if the app was able to send out a calendar invite to both the users. They will often be in different time zones so the calendar invite will have to take that into account.

For the 2nd functionality:
This is more like an active setting - the users who are "currently looking" switch on that they are ready to communicate straight away and once a sufficient match is identified both users are presented with each others profiles and can click accept or reject. If accepted they are once more put in touch via Skype.

In summary:
Depending on the skill of the developer / app developer I approximate the project will require about 50-200h of initial development time for the first proof of concept ready to be launched on the App store.

The second and third phase which I have not discussed here will require a great deal more development and if I find a good developer I am happy to bring them along for these subsequent development phases.
