We require an android app which functions primarily as a series of buttons which trigger the inbuilt android browser to visit specific websites.
The following components are required:
1) an introductory screen with a page of text and some images (a basic intro with step 1 to 3 instructions)
2) the main app itself will have a plain background (preferably white) with two tabs. Each of the two tabs will be an entire screen (where the first is visible by default) and will have a series of icons representing different websites. These will be presented in a very similar way to apps on the android home screen on phones like the HTC desire HD or even the iPhone. These regularly spaced icons must rearrange themselves to suit different sized phone screens, so as to appear orderly and neat.
The first tab may have as many as 50 icons/bookmarks, whereas the second tab will probably only have 15. The app should be written in such a way that we can add or remove icons at a later stage without it being too much work. Preferably, existing users of the app should be able to update to the new version. This app will be provided to users free of charge.
When the user clicks an icon, it must trigger the built-in browser and go to a specific URL for each icon.
Ideally, an "about us" page should be an accessible via the menu. Equally, we would like the user to be able to disable or remove unwanted specific icons, or for the user to choose the order of the icons.
We can provide a list of URLs and you can choose whether you do the graphic work for the icons, or whether we provide it. Think of these little icons as being bookmark buttons for various websites. Each website will have its own unique icon based upon their website/company logo, which we will need to draw from the specific websites in question.
We will also need the icon for the app itself designing, and all of the preparation done for uploading this app to the marketplace.
A bonus will be paid if you can also build in a "tell a friend" mechanism, so they can share the app with their friends via e-mail, SMS, Facebook, etc.
I already have a basic prototype which I made myself using Google app inventor within two hours, and I am a non-techie, so I do not expect this job to be hugely expensive.
A successful task completed for android, will also need converting to iPhone and Blackberry as a separate task. We can provide all of the ad copy - you just need to tell us what you need.
These apps will also need support over time, including updating the list of URLs. The ongoing requirements can be quoted for separately.
Finally, we will require acknowledgement from yourself that the source code belongs to us at the end of the project.
Examples of previous app work would be helpful please.
Good luck and happy bidding!
