This software will help sports card collectors keep track of their collections. Users will register with my website to be able to receive data updates as well as program updates. The program will need to be able to automatically update itself through the internet by downloading from the website. Users should also be able to select the data they want to download to their machines. A list of downloaded updates must be kept on the user's machine to check against the online master list. Usage of the program should enable users to add cards to their inventory with few keystrokes. The program should also have a "Search" option to search the user's downloaded data for particular cards the search string appears in.
Eventually, once development on the above is to my standards and finished, I would like to start implementing a section on my website where users can upload their collections, viewable for everyone to see.
Please view the zip file containing images of my ideas. They are drawn images and partial screen shots from other inventory-type programs that I think would be useful in this. Please remember these are only ideas and are open to discussion.
*Added 7/22* Coder will need to be available 2-3 times a week via email or AOL/MSN/etc to discuss development. I believe in getting it to my expectations and ideas the first time around will make it easier in the long run.
