Project Description


DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MINE, by bidding a price, then trying to double or triple that price when you talk to me. I do not deal with cheats and crooks !! I have seen enough on Freelancer.

This job is not that complicated because most of the code is in Libraries that I am supplying. Most of the effort will be in the UI and that is not that difficult I know. Also there are other apps to mold from to it should be straight forward.

Read the project description "look at the links" and then if you want to apply I welcome your bid. If you are going to mess me around go somewhere else.


The objective is to have an app similar in design for both iPhone, iPad and Android (phone and tablet) that is a good quality email app similar to the styles and features listed below, that allows the user to encrypt the email.

It is important the app is written in a way to have exchangeable Libraries, in other words, reusable libraries as much as possible possible between the two so

a) they are easy to maintain and

b) simpler to develop

The app will incorporate all the usual features such as POP/SMTP, IMAP, EMAIL, MIME, SSH, Encryption etc etc as seen in the above examples. It must be a comprehensive and well flowing app.

Regarding Libraries, a company called Chilkat already has libraries for all standard functions Sending and Receiving, POP/SMTP, IMAP, EMAIL, MIME, SSH, Encryption etc.

I will supply these libraries to you so it will not be necessary to write a large amount of code because it already exists and works and will save you a lot of time. Mainly you will need to write the UI / UX parts, and the interfacing to the libraries.

Apparently K9 is open source, have seen it on Github, [url removed, login to view] perhaps that is useful as a foundation, however the UI / UX is not all that great.

Before you bid, please know that I am an IT professional with 40 years experience. So I only want "experienced" and knowledgeable coders that "write good industry standard code" please not messy quick code.

There are 3 Stages to this project

1) initial UI / UX part

2) building in the internals, the engine, using the Libraries and your coding

Stage 1 - should be done first for both the Android and iOS devices so I can send this off for user review. (Payment will be made at this stage)

Stage 2- while users are looking and testing the UI / UX, you can start on Stage 2 which is building the actual emailing part using the Libraries.

Remember that I can provide most of what is needed internally through the Chilkat Libraries. Your job is to build the functional app around this, UI, UX, interfacing functionality, so hopefully it will not be a huge project because a lot of it is already existing.

I am happy to provide a document to confirm what is required after we speak and agree on the best approach to this.

Look forward to your feedback.

thank you
