Greetings to you and yours,
I am in the process of making some major changes in the GraceTime process and website. I will also be changing web host. In the planning of this change I will be looking for some bids, suggestions and professionals to help with this change.
The immediate challenge (phase 1) is to create a smart phone application to be used on android and iphones that will present a welcome to the GraceTime site, give basic instructions on how to use the app and or buttons or other to allow the user to use the program to answer a set of questions via the video record function of their smart phone. The individual questions will probably have a time limit of video record as the total time limit for all questions will be three (3) minutes.
Questions examples will be as follows:
1. Please state your full name including your birth name.
2. Please state when you were born using month, day & year.
3. Please state geographically where you were born.
4. Please state if you have been married or had any children, giving their names and other information you would like to share.
5. Please state your education experiences, lifetime occupation(s) or lifestyle (city, farm or other).
6 Please state your religious beliefs and or preferences.
7. What is the most important lesson in life you have learned or experienced?
8. If you were to expire tomorrow, what advise would you want to extend to your grand children or loved ones?
If you are interested I am very interested in the development of a smart phone app, using the above information, that will do the following things.
1. Use the smart phones (androids and iphones) video record capability to be used to have the user record (or re-record) responses to preprogrammed questions.
2. Have the ability to limit each response to a specific time limit with a warning of going over the time limit and an option to re-record that particular response.
3. Have the ability to skip answering a question if the user so desires.
4. Have the ability to limit the total of all questions answered to a total of 3 minutes of video recorded time. And if exceeded the ability to re-record one of the many answers in the group to meet the total video consumed time.
5. Function to upload that video to a per-determined web location. Probably a GraceTime FTP site... however, we already have a web program that will accept videos much the same as You Tube. The object is to keep it simple (a one button function) to the end user. Any suggestion would be welcomed.
6. (phase 2) Function to be able to sell additional time for video response. ( that means a program to accept credit card and process etc.)
I would be curious if you, your group or someone you know would have interest in bidding on this app / process development.
