Iphone/ipad app required to allow a user to find their nearest... business.
The app will be open, displaying the users position on a map, and the user can see their nearest "business" represented as a drop pin on POI. Clicking on the pin will expand to show a picture of the business, and some brief information. Address, special info etc.
Users of the app should be permitted to "rate" the business using 1 to 5 stars, with the average rating being displayed.
Users should be able to submit businesses for inclusion by being able to take or upload a picture, and filling in the required fields. These suggestions will be emailed to me, or uploaded to the database for my review prior to inclusion.
Terms and costs for future expansion of app by yourself can be agreed upon, however source code and ownership should be passed to me upon completion of project.
App should be compatible with iOS5 and backwards compatible with at least iOS4
A method of permitting me to add and remove businesses should be available. ie, a database hosted on the web somewhere. I shall provide the hosting. This should prevent a new version of the app being submitted to apple purely because of enhanced content.
The app should cache the content data from the web at each successful connection, then, if a wifi or network signal is not avaiable, the app can still be used in an offline mode.
A method of displaying an advertisement when the app first loads should be included. this ad will be a full screen graphic, that when clicked, will open a browser to the businesses webpage. Ad's to be hosted on same webspace as the hosting db. I should be provided with a method of changing, or turning the advert on or off at my discretion.
I can provide the icon and load screen images to be used in the app.
Freelancer suggestions or amendments to this brief spec are welcomed and encouraged.
When a user clicks on a business's POI drop pin. If applicable, a button or tab showing a voucher or special offer should be displayed allowing the user to avail of a discount in store upon presenting the iphone to the cashier.
I should be provided with a method of switching on or off the "voucher" feature for a business, and to control the content displayed. ie - either free text, or a simple jpeg with the offer.
