Skype click to call - If you don't know it - is a browser extension that applies a regex for phone numbers to mark them up as a link:
Similarily we seek to:
1. Mark up through a keyword list & regex patterns on (android 4.0)
smartphones - everywhere possible! (=covering at least a major part of the average user's activities - for example in conversations(facebook, gmail, whatsapp, snapchat) Browsers (android browser, chrome) , text files and so on)
2. Do not just markup but also store a simple log file of the markups - where possible - including up to all of the following: timestamp, app/process name and content name (like contact name or http:// location respectively)
The app (you) should be aware of computing/battery effciency
The keywords and regex list is rather short but we may add something later.
For now the app needs to run on Android4.0 or newer (only)
and it can NOT require to root the device - I dont know if our app can ask for systemwide permissions or "watch" what happens in certain other apps?
Above is the 'COMPLETE SPECIFICATION' needed to start this job.
"where possible" means you should guess/assess how much of it is possible technically easily or difficult/only through work-arounds in your answer along with suggesting a budget for what you can do. First milestone can be called 'further research'. Budget/cost is not yet fixed!
(OPTIONALLY - not necessarily - you can participate in the following too
-- or just comment your code well...)
3. Reports/Statistics based on the log
4. polished UI
5. Later versions will include iOS or more.
(BTW: I'm not much into 'classical hierachies'. For every job i offer or take, I'm hoping to meet a potential 'dream-team'/'co-founders' I wish to support anyone who cares about innovation, investment, social impact as often as possible - yet even if working together shortly only i still exepct anyone to act personally responsible and not just copy&paste....)
