Request for tender – Mobile development
I am looking for someone interested in developing an application for mobile devices. Most predominently this includes smartphones, and too a lesser extent, pda's.
It's not a very large application, but its a bit complex due to the need for multiple platforms.
In summary – all that the software needs to be able to do (a) read the co-ordinates from a GPS receiver, and (b) take a given address, pass that along to the relevant GPS navigational software which will handle the rest in terms of navigation.
As mentioned, its not a huge project, but it needs to be of absolute first-class quality and is a bit intricate in nature – only those with a good mobile development background need apply. We are fully incorporated companu and this is a professional project – we are willing to pay very handsomly, if the job is completed to the highest standard.
I have provided some rough requirements below – it would be pointless to outline the entire project in this space. If you are interested, please apply and I will give you the extensive details.
To be succint, the key requirements are:
1/ Works in Symbian, Microsoft Windows Mobile operating systems initially – will potentially need to broaden this in the future to Apple Safari (iPhone), Google Asteroid (gPhone) platforms and possibly Palm as well. I suspect due to such a need for cross-platform compatibility Java will be the go, but am open to all avenues.
2/ Needs *tight* integration with GPS receives, whether integrated or external. This goes for everything from the Nokia devices with integrated GPS receives (i.e. The n95 and the Nokia Navigator), to Windows Mobile devices with integrated GPS receives (such as the Dopod/i-mate/O2 models, as well as various Mio and HP devices), to external bluetooth GPS receivers.
3/ Following on from the above point, you will also need to be familiar with relevant GPS naviagation software. On Windows, this usually consists of software from either Tom Tom or CoPilot. Nokia's naviagation software is powered by Navman.
4/ This is an on-going project, so after the initial version, there will be revisions as well as future release versions, this cannot be a one-off project.
