I am looking for a freelancer to help me with the programming of a cross platform ios/android app. The program must be completed on Xamarin studio, preferably using their forms feature. I am looking for a fixed fee project and my budget is up to $3000 CAD, depending on the features provided. There is flexibility to go higher for amazing results. The basic features required are: (a) secure authentication with custom user accounts; (b) a news feed (which pulls and parses JSON data from a wordpress site to create the feed) with the ability to click news feed items to open a detailed new item; (c) the ability to take a picture of photo identification and store the picture against the user account; (d) a product gallery (think pinterest) which allows you to click items to open a an item detail page which also contains a link to a website for that product (using the embedded browser feature); (e) a map feature (including search features) which presents pinpoints for a series of local locations which are pulled from a database (JSON), as well as a listing of the closest pin points ; (f) a detail page that gets pulled up when the map pinpoints are pressed: (g) a support feature where users can send email support requests to an email; (h) comment and ratings support for each page (news article or item detail page) and (i) a walk through verification system where people can provide information to be “verified”. Advance optional features (which would command a higher payment than what's contemplated) include: (a) auto-recognition of information from photo identification (name, serial); (b) live video chatting with an administrative user; (c) comprehensive store front system which allows sales users to post products for sale and have the payments processed through the app (paypal or otherwise); and (d) a forum. If we have a good relationship, there will be the opportunity to design further modules from time to time.
We also would also need an administrator side control panel. This could be part of wordpress or a separate app. Generally, it will need to have the ability to control (add, edit or delete) the content required for the above features. Similarly, we would need to be able to enroll people in person by having an administrator take the user’s information and a photo.
IP ownership is important to us. We will need full IP assignment to us. To the extent any third party addons/modules are used for the above, they would need to be appropriately licensed and pre-cleared to ensure that they can be used legally for our app.
Security is a first priority, and a beautiful navigation experience is a close second.
