Project Description

We're looking to create an app for Android and iPhone.


In terms of functionality, it's a very simple app, it simply displays our latest HTML message/announcement when opened.

We have multiple brands, so once complete we'll need to duplicate the app for each brand.

Only difference will be app title, logo, maybe colors.

Open to suggestions for best way to handle this. I would think adding variables inside the app/code that are easy to change.

Visual App Aspects:

Every time the app is launched, it connects to the web to get our latest HTML message and displays this message.

The app should have support for animated gifs, video and sound inside the HTML being displayed

User scrolls through our message like a webpage

Need a few menu buttons on the bottom that link to various websites, and a preferences button.

Admin Web Interface:

The message to be displayed in the App should be created in a web interface ( Interface coded in PHP, and Mysql backend)

There should be a preview of how the message will appear on different devices (resolutions). Similar to: [url removed, login to view]

But we only really need 4 main previews, phone, tablet and phone-horizontal, tablet-horizontal

Once message is composed, there should be a popup calendar/time for scheduling.

The interface should maintain a list of scheduled/sent messages.

Push Notifications:

We need to add in PUSH Notification support into the App.

The push notifications are initiated from the web interface.

Need personalization of push notifications based on DB values for each user.

We'd like to embed Parse for the push notifications: [url removed, login to view]

Experience with Parse is a big plus. If you have a better suggestion, we're open to ideas as well.


We'd like to maintain statistics, Parse also has a product for this: [url removed, login to view]

When the app is installed/first ran, the user sets some basic preferences.

The app then needs to send all the settings user selected to our mysql DB, updates should be send when a user updates any of the settings.

We are also open to other tools for reporting, if you have a better suggestion.


The app should be able to be updated automatically, please let us know your thoughts or options for this.

Please include in your BID: Please offer your thoughts on maintaining multiple brands, best way to handle push notifications, reporting/stats options, and options for updating the app.

Looking for bids around $500 for this project.

Thank you.
