I am developing an app that is somewhat complex and needs to be able to access several websites to pull in data.
Create app for iphone & android and possibly eventually a related website.
Task is complex and not merely a simple business app. Needs to have knowledge on how to pull data from many websites (think trivago or zillow)
The basic premise is that the app will search for sale listings across several websites in a specific industry and combine the listings into one searchable database where the user can identify particular criteria and receive alerts when a product matching their criteria appears. Needs to constantly update and be able to pull data from differently set up websites and make them uniform for searchability.
I am a business owner/entrepreneur with limited technology experience. Need a developer with strong communication skills in english as there will be many conversations needed to refine this initial idea.
Would like to develop an initial version (minimum viable product) to test the market and refine as I anticipate the complexity will result in unanticipated issues that will need to be worked through.
