We are looking for a programmer who is able to program for the Apple iPhone/iPod/iPad to create a simple application for us.
We require a program to display a catalogue on the Apple iPhone, iPod or iPad (iDevices) and allow the user to select an item from the catalogue. The catalogue will be a simple series of images that will be displayed with a descriptive text. The images are organized by category. When the user clicks an image category the software displays the images for that category. One image at a time is displayed on the device and the user can move through the different images.
When the user clicks the image (or a button next to the image) the software will query our online database to display the location of the nearest representative for our product. The software will then also ask the user to send us his location and e-mail address so that we can have a representative contact him/her.
The online database that holds the images for the catalogue includes descriptions in several languages. Depending on the configured language of the iDevice, the software would need to download the database in the correct language and if no language matches, then the default language which is English.
The software will need an interface with Fring ([url removed, login to view]) and should have an option that the user can press to talk live to our representative at the head office at any time using Fring.
Users will be able to download this application free from the Apple store. The program needs to be able to be downloaded from the Apple application store onto any iPhone iPod or iPad device in the world. Therefore the programmer needs to make all the necessary software to allow us to upload updates to the Apple store and allow the iDevice to download the software from the Apple store.
The actual image database with the text descriptions will be supplied. This is a standard database easily accessible from our web server.
You MUST have experience programming for the Apple iDevices and must have already successfully completed a project that involves a software application for the Apple iDevices via the Apple store.
You must provide an example of your work.
