I need an ios or Android app. For each one, I can pay $50, as this is a fairly simple book app. It has to work on multiple devices. You can use Phonegap if you like as long as its not slow.

I have a large 650 page book on MS Word.

I would like that to be made into an app.

I want to make this book into an App split by chapters and sub headings.

On the main screen, the user can see all the main chapter headings (in rows). From there, he can expand any one of these chapters to see the sub chapters, or he can expand all at the same time.

Once he chooses a Chapter or a Sub Chapter, he will be taken to that section of the book.

It also needs full advanced search functionality within this app.

On the main screen, he will have the ability to do a powerful search with many combinations.

He can search just Chapters & Sub Chapter headings, or he can search the whole book for any keyword. He can search multiple keywords existing within a certain chapter or within a certain paragraph or sentence. Or he can search for multiple keywords in succession or he can use Boolean values of AND or OR or NOT etc… In general, any scenario that can be imagined with search capability has to be implemented.

He will also have the ability to bookmark a page and name it.

In the book, there are footnotes. Each footnote has a number which corresponds with the number in the main text.
So the footnotes need to be created on a separate page each with the number.
When the user is reading the main text, there will be a button on the top right hand corner named “Footnotes”. The user can click that and he will be shown the footnote corresponding to the part of the main text he is reading.

When the user quits the app and returns, he will be taken to the page he was on before, unless he shuts down the app completely.

I have spent weeks personally formatting the book.

The book contains Main Headings and Sub Headings.

It also contains a Table of Contents and a Glossary at the end.

The book also has a lot of images.

There may be large white spaces in places. When you transfer the book to the app, eliminate the large white spaces.

The user should be able to read the whole book in one flow, and also jump to any chapter/sub chapter via the chapter selection menu.

Max budget is $50 per platform. Let me know if you can do this and fast.
