I need a IPhone Application (Native, not web based) for Travel,
It would search for Flights, Hotels, Cars, Tours etc.
The application is simple, It takes an input from the user, sends the query to the server & displays the result. Upon clicking the result, the user is taken to a website that is opened with the Safari Mobile web browser OR a built in browser within the Application (the Built in version is preferred)
The Server API are REST Based & simple to implement.
This is an outline of the Application:
1. Flights, Hotels, Cars, Tours, Packages, Combination searches (flight, hotel + car) & Deals
- This would be known as the search categories
2. The flow of the application:
a. Index Page - shows the Options (Search Categories as Icons & Text), also shown the Preference page.
a. Search Page - User fills up the page
b. Results Page - results of the API query Response in row, This will show the Icon of the supplier, Name, Website (below the name), and a *Go* icon on the right.
3. Upon clicking the Result Row - the built in web browser would display the URL of the result list.
4. In any page, there should be a top navigation bar to allow user to navigate back and/or forward.
5. The preference page should include some basic information, like email, name, alert for travels. Where these information would be saved locally in the database to be retrieved later AND the information must be sent to the server.
6. IPhone State: When the application changed from Active to the Home menu (apple home), The state must be saved, and when launched again, the same state must be displayed.
7. All the searches must be saved to the local database, along with the time stamp.
8. Results of the last search must be saved in the local database.
9. A separate page called Deals (a menu from the main) would display a page with a web browser that displays a page from the server. This is just a built in web browser component.
10. I need this application the soonest. Please bid according to your skills to deliver & If you need more money for this, please inform in as well. I will hire the best coder that could deliver this the soonest with the ability to provide enhancements over next year.
11. Please ask me for more information, I am in the midst of creating screen shots / mock up designs & will post this accordingly.
