I am looking for an Android developer to build a simple search-based application.
The application will search a database of information and will work similarly to a contacts app. The user will be shown ~5 short-text pieces of information relating to the item they selected.
The user will also be able to configure a setting for themselves, so that when they view an item from the database, another additional piece of information specific to them will be shown as well. There could be up to 100 items of this particular category, so they will need to be shown only the one piece of information that relates to them (this may seem confusing but when I explain further you will see it is a simple concept).
You will not be responsible for the database content, however, we will need to discuss how the data should be presented and entered into the app.
The app should be easily updatable if the information changes - it should be able to be done by someone with no coding experience.
I would like to discuss the pros and cons of having this done through a server and synced to the device periodically or manually, or, having the data updated via app updates. The solution must be cost-effective.
The app will need to have ads which we can discuss further at the appropriate time. The app will also need to have the option to remove ads i.e. a pro version.
You will be responsible for designing an intuitive, clean, smart interface, free from errors, spelling and grammar mistakes. Examples of previous work are preferred.
The app does not necessarily need to be built from scratch - if there is existing source code that is suitable, we can look at this as an option.
Finally, the app should be designed so that it can be launched on the App Store for iOS in the future.
I look forward to discussing this further with you!
The budget is set at $200.00 but this is not concrete.
