I am looking for a team to build an online/mobile application that allows college students to post and view parties on a map-based interface.
The website should allow users to view a map and accompanying list of parties/events in their area. Users should be able to indicate that they plan on attending certain parties (list should be sorted by how many users plan to attend). Users can click parties to get additional information (cost, address, updates). Last, users should be able to add new parties.
The iPhone app is similar but needs to incorporate the user's location in a few ways. First, user's map should indicate his/her current location. Second, parties can be sorted by distance. Third, when a user is at a party as indicated by coinciding locations, the user can leave an update (e.g., "Lots of dancing").
Each user belongs to one college, which determines the user's map/list of parties. In this initial stage, only 5-10 college campuses will be tested.

The backend can be done in RoR (ruby on rails) . For the iPhone part, phonegap [url removed, login to view] can be used which would convert the html to native iPhone app. We have both the expertise & can deliver.
