iOS/Android development - magazine app and framework

I am looking for a developer or group of developers who can create an iOS and Android compatible magazine-like application for tablet and smartphone. This application needs to include the backend UI to publish the magazine content.


Version 1.0

- End product is a downloadable application which provides a presentation framework and UI to deliver text, images and video

- Overall project involves building a base level application which largely a container for 'magazine' editions

- Similar in concept to GQ, WIRED apps that already exist, however I would like three tiers. Base container > subject area > magazine editions

- Base container app should have multiple 'tabs' for home page information, updates/news, FAQ and a tab where subject areas are displayed

- Clicking on subject areas moves to screen with all 'magazine' editions related to subject area

- Magazine editions should be entirely self contained, downloadable and purchaseable, with an index/table of contents and deliver text, images and video as mentioned.

- Content should work offline, except for links and web dependent content, which will work when there is an internet connection

- Backend/Publisher framework needed as well. Framework should make it very easy for non IT users to update the home page/news, create/update subject areas and create magazine editions. This should be web based, open to suggestions.

- Purchasing of magazines should be possible via relevant marketplace (e.g. iTunes)

- Updates should be deliverable via standard iOS and Android mechanisms

- Security required to ensure users can authenticate and only have access to the content they have paid for

- UI should be smoothly and efficient. Preferably smooth continuous scrolling like Google+.

- needs to work across tablet and smart phone devices on both Android and iOS

- linking to googlemaps is important

- offline maps also important

- ability to add comments to articles, provide feedback to editor is important

- linking to tripadvisor and other review websites is important

- publishing to apple and google stores part of project

Non development tasks required as part of project:

- Advisory on what is achievable for a particular budget and timeframes required

- Advisory on any additional backend required to support application

- PoC and UAT mandatory

- Post implementation warranty period

Please make sure you have references and show cases I can review.

I am on a tight budget but feel free to pitch a price you think is fair. Many thanks in advance and let me know if you have questions.
