ORIGINAL DESCRIPTION: Need a shortcut built that can be downloaded from my website to a mobile phone, Android or IOS. The shortcut will contain the URL of that same website, making it callable from the mobile phone without entering an address in the phone's browser.
ATTENTION DEVELOPERS: I AM ADDING MORE INFORMATION FOR ALL INTERESTED DEVELOPERS because I can't tell if the proposals received really understand the special challenges of this project. I need you to tell me HOW you will accomplish my goals, not just that you've built lots of mobile apps before.
Please reply by emailing me to [login to view URL]@[login to view URL] with an explanation of how you will accommodate the specific requirements below.
- The user will click a button on the laptop version of the website that says "Download to your mobile phone."
- The button should download a "tile" icon to the user's phone home screen, and present that tile next to all other tiles on the phone.
- The solution could either detect if the user's phone is iOS or Android... or the user could be prompted with that question.
- The solution could prompt the user for their mobile phone #, if required.
- The solution could send a text message to the user's mobile phone that includes the URL of the website. The trick is to somehow get the icon tile to the user's home screen, WITHOUT going through the App Stores.
- The tile should have embedded the URL for the mobile website. When the user clicks on the tile, the website should be called (as if it had been entered in their Safari, Chrome, or other browser on their phone.) No other code or functionality is needed for the tile/downloadable shortcut.
- Many developers have said "This can't be done", because of the restrictive environment and rules of IOS, and that I do not want to use the App Stores. I am using Shopify in-app to collect a $15 fee before allowing the user the create a userid.
The general reaction has been that Android is easier, but the user will receive a notice from Google that the downloaded icon and shortcut are "from an unrecognized source" before they are able to download the shortcut. (not ideal, but not the biggest obstacle.)
Please feel free to email me with questions.
