I want to develop a mobile application (for Android-Smartphones & Tablets, IOS platforms - iPhones, iPad) that is linked to a Website.
The purpose is to allow merchants to promote their products/services by creating a \"Treasure Hunt\" type of contest. Registered merchants will log in to the website with their Facebook/LinkedIn/Twitter accounts, upload the \"Treasure\" (which is an image of a particular object which they will display in one of their outlets and the participating users are suppose to \"hunt\" for it). Merchants can set their rules by typing in the Do\'s & Don\'ts of the contest - for instance, \"all participants must post a \'selfie\' shot of themselves with the object write a catchy caption as well\".
The users will have to download the app, register themselves and the app system will notify them of a list of contests that are available. They make their choice depending on the rewards offered by the merchants.
The quickest person to take the snapshot, posted with the best caption (determined by the merchant) and who shared to the most friends via their social network ie., Facebook/Twitter, etc will win the grand prize. The ones who come in second, third, etc will win the 2nd, 3rd prize, etc. The \'prize\' here will be the credit points which will be credited into the users\' account.
The users will collect as many credit points as possible, and subsequently can exchange the credit points with the participating merchants\' products/services at their respective outlets later.
This Website/Mobile App must have the necessary security features to record users profile from their device ie., their contacts, etc. It must have a feature that asked the user\'s permission to turn on their GPS, Data line, etc.
This is because when the user clicked to the \'contests\', it must pop-up a Google map type of map where it points/direct the user to that particular merchant\'s outlet location.
