I communicate with 250? independant contractors? that each work in a given city and during a 30 day period collecting information.? They have been having trouble communicating with each other and knowing where each person has already collected data during the day until they sync their tablets at the end of the day.? I would like to develop a mobile application that does the following:
User opens an app on his phone, windows mobile, iphone or whatever to determine if anyone is currently collecting data in the area.? This person clicks a button that? will then pull the GPS coordinates and send that to a web service that queries a sql server database to see if anyone else is in that immedate area.? If not, it will then submit that employee's coordinates to the database so that the next person will be told that he is there if they try to collect data in that area.
The process should work as follows:
User opens an application on the phone and? that application will pull the GPS coordinates from the phone? and open the web browser (as I think that's the easiest way to communicate with the web service) with the coordinates stored in a hidden text box or session variable or however it makes sense.? On that page that it opens there are two buttons and a text box.? Check This Area button? (which queries the web service and displays anyone it finds) and Submit this area which? would submit the GPS coordinates along with the user's comments that are in the text box to the web service which saves it in the database.
I only need you to design the app for the phone.? I need it for all the major phones:
Iphone, Windows Mobile, Android, Blackberry and standard phones.? If you can do all of them, quote all of them.? If you can only do one, just quote the one.
Please contact me if you need more information.
Please make recommendations to me if you feel what I want to do can be done easier.
