I am looking for a iPhone developer to develop a social networking application (native) for iPhone, somewhat like the MySpace and Facebook apps with certain unique features (I will give the details of certain features after signing a NDA with the winning bidder).
Initially the app requires basic social networking features like:
1. View friends' updates
2. View friends' profiles
3. Update profile
4. Browse self and friends' photo albums
5. Upload photos (from iPhone camera or existing pictures)
6. Post/reply to comments/messages
7. Search profiles
8. Add new friends
We will support only one social network in the first version and later support for other networks will be added (this means repeat work for the coder). The app will also take advantage of iPhone's upcomming push notification service to deliver friend's updates & messages (I will handle any server side programming if required for this myself).
The app must support iPhone's standard animated transitions and gestures (like pinching for zooming in out, flicking through pictures, changing screen orientation based on accelerometer feedback, etc.). The application should be intuitive and should follow iPhone's UI design standards ([iPhone Human Interface Guidelines]). The code must follow coding standards and must be well commented. The app needs to support internationalization (language translations will be provided by me).
During development daily updates must be provided via chat or email and test build at least once a week.
I believe it will take an experienced developer less than a month to develop this app (the basic social networking features as outlined above supporting only one network). I will give a bonus if it is done before time and/or there are extra features. There will be additional work for the coder after this as we add more features and support more social networks later on.
If anything is not clear in the bid or you have questions please do let me know.
**IMPORTANT:** *Please bid only if you developed for OSX and iPhone before. Include examples of your iPhone apps in your bid.*
Please note that this in not a new social network but a client app for an existing social network. The actual data will be stored by the network and the app will communicate with the network to view or update it (via the network's API or other means).
