Tiny & Simple Desktop App needed for Mac OS X


I need a simple demonstration of a Mac full-screen app that allows text to be entered and also plays a simple sound.


Here are the exact requirements:

* A GUI program must be written in Objective-C using Cocoa APIs.

* The program must start in full-screen on Mac OS X Snow Leopard (and Lion).

* Once the program has entered full-screen mode, a small image will be shown that then fades over 5 seconds. The image must be loaded from a file, .JPG or similar format, which will be provided.

* Any keys typed must appear on the screen as they would in a word document or a textbox on a web page.

* As each letter is typed, a small sound must be played. The sound must be loaded from a file, .WAV or similar format, which will be provided.

* If Command + 0 (i.e. zero) is pressed, all the letters must disappear and typing will start again at the top of the screen.

* IMPORTANT: If the program loses focus, it must bring itself back to the front and acquire focus.

* The program must exit when Command + Q is pressed.

* The program must come with files to build it into a format that I can drag&drop into the Applications folder on my Mac.


You must deliver:

1. All source code.

2. All other files required to build the program into a format that I can drag&drop into 'Applications'.

3. Brief instructions on how to build the program from the delivered files.
