**Here is the straight forward requirement from my client. There are other projects to follow and the requirement may change a little bit during the project discussion. The project will be discussed in details with the shortlisted bidders. Kindly provide your price for this job. **
** Here is an app requirement, I would like you to find someone to do this. This app is not in any way related to the streaming site but we could use the same server. I will use the same terms, user is the end user and CP is content provider.
The application involves a daily feed of a picture and a message. The picture and message would be uploaded to the server by a CP. When the app is opened on the iPhone and a button on the screen is pressed then the picture and message would be viewed by the iPhone. We could have multiple CP's - this would mean the user would be able to cycle through each daily CP picture and their message once the app is open.
We would store the updates on the server hence there would be a 'buffer' of a few days (let us say 7 days). This would mean if a CP misses an update then they could 'catch up' the next day or so and we would never be in the situation where an update is missed. On the other hand if the user does not connect and does not download the daily update then we could store past updates for a few days only - let's also go for 7 days here. So if the user does not connect for 11 days they would only be able to go back 7 days - they would lose 4 days of updates.
Message length - max of 200 characters maybe.
Each user would pay to connect for a period of time (say 1 month) - payment is handled by the app store. The user would receive updates each day for that period. The server would recognise the iPhone and automatically allow connection (not a manual login). After that an expiry message and perhaps an option to renew.
Let me know of any questions.
