I'm looking for someone to develop an Android webview app for an existing CRM web site.
The application would be very simple - but needs to have replaceable branding. (to match the branding of the companies that use our CRM)
The application needs to hide the browser components (eg back button, url etc). For all intents and purposes, it needs to look like a native app.
The final url we provide will take the user to a login/password screen. However, the application can be tested with any common website url.
If there is a delay while the application is starting up, I would like to display a splash screen image (JPG)
Source code for the application and a summary of required tools to enable the application to be rebuilt
I would require detailed instruction explaining how to:
a) replace the splash screen image (if required)
b) replace the application icon (that appears on the Android home page)
c) change the name of the application (on the Android home screen)
d) change the url that is opened when the app starts
e) how to submit the application to the Play Store to enable our clients to install the app on their mobile devices
f) How to setup a development environment to facilitate rebuilding the app (if required)
If possible, I would prefer to change the branding by using a configuration file where I can swap out images and logos, and potentially use some sort of packaging tool to allow me to submit the rebranded app to the Play Store.
The need to recompile the app for each rebranding exercise is a acceptable solution (If there are no other alternatives) - but it is not a desired outcome.
I would like to know:
1. What would be the ETA for the project
2. What would be your required budget
3. Your availability for ongoing (paid) changes
4. Any links to portfolio/open source projects
5. Any references
Note: If you think the app would not be approved in the Play Store, please suggest ideas to help overcome this. (We cannot replicate the functionality of the CRM within a native app)
