I need someone to create a mobile app that will interact with my backend via a REST API. The purpose of this app is to allow authors to send notifications to their readers/fans on their mobile device. In an effort to keep this short, this is a basic overview of what the app should do:
1. Receive push notifications from my backend when an author releases a new book. This will preferably be done with Amazon SNS, but I am open to different technologies.
2. Require a user to login to my backend before any actions can take place on the app. They should also be allowed to signup and use Facebook authentication.
3. Retrieve data from my REST API to list book promotions and authors.
4. Perform POST operations to allow readers to follow authors.
5. REST API calls to send usage data to my backend (unless a more viable option is available).
I'm currently working on a more detailed specification that will be provided to applicants.
The hired freelancer will also need to...
