Project: Muslim Community Events APP
We would like a Muslim Community events app for an I-phone and Android device.
Please see attachment for app mock-up and snippets of code for major parts of the APP.
Basically, there are several community groups that send us their announcements of community events in their area via email. There is no set format of how the sender places information about their event in their email. However, there is some similarity to the wording/syntax of how events are announced. Basically this is the general workflow we would like to have:
1) The events coordinator registers a specific electronic email address with us
2) When we receive an email from , a script reads the received mail and parses event details (i.e. Title of event, Description of Event Date/Time of Event, location of the event, contact information for event including phone number, email, website, cost of event(where applicable))
2) Automatically send an email notice to our admin admin to say "Here's the email announcement from Joe at group ABCDEF Inc. that I just received, and, here's the event info that I parsed from it; please confirm by clicking "YES" to publish to the app now or manually EDIT and publish.
We have some flexibility for database in the back-end where the event information will be stored for publication to the iphone/android app. A great example of the general concept of the parser part can be found in a app for travel itineraries. The developer site provides a free example at [url removed, login to view] Please review the Worldmate API.
We would like to work with developers who have already made similiar email parser and app for community events as we are short on time and would like only those respondents that have this type of experience. Thank you.
