Based on our discussion with a few developers, we understand that our requirements are very vague, and no meaningful estimate can be had with what has been presented. We will now be working on the exact spec, including the spec for the back end API's (which are custom API's and need to be documented). Our current estimate to complete this will be at least 30 days from now. I will post an update on the state of the requirements doc by 08/16. Thank you for your interest in this project.
[Note: due to the large number of applicants, no individual response will be sent at this time]

As of this writing we have received 175 applications for this job. Our team will start reviewing applications starting 07/15/2016. Please note that we have a very small team, and are busy with our own dev work. Slow response is to be expected. In terms of timeline, we will send out initial invites for discussion by 07/20/2016. Due to the overwhelming number of posts, we will not be able to respond individually. Instead the posting status will be made available here.
We are a small startup currently working on the launch of our webapp. We are also looking to rollout a mobile app for Android and iOS. App description:
- The App will be the native version of our website. All features available on our website will be made available on the App.
- A REST API is available for the App to talk to. No local storage or database development required.
- The App will require: All user management functionalities for Apps (login, logoff), Around 15 different pages upon sign in. Each page will mostly be text display of information retrieved from the back end with some user interaction.
Upon commencement we will provide a complete wireframe of the app, including graphics/icons and design input as well as the API.
We do not have app development expertise in house and will require your input for end to end development.
When reposnding please include a high level estimate for this work (We understand this description is very vague, but it is good to have a ballpark estimate, based on your prior experience). We are specifically interested in how long and how much. Please also include the preferred terms of engagement.
If your expertise is in only iOS or Android, that is fine. We are ok with hiring two different developers/firms for each app.
Our budget is flexible, however, we will need to submit an estimate to our investors prior to commitment. So while our description is vague, it will be helpful if you can include estimates for a few types of Apps that you have done before. Anything that will help build our case with our investors, who are new to Tech investing.
