We require a Google Chrome App/Plugin to be built for our website ( then possibly a Firefox and Safari version as well ).
In brief the plugin should have 2 main features:
1) Similar to the Pinterest app, where a user is able to simply pin an article they see when browsing to our website. Although it wouldn't be called a pin, but we are using this app as an example because it is one of the most recognise apps around
2) We need it to monitor the websites that a user visits and check our database automatically. If the website being browsed is present within our database, the app should alert the user of this and provide some options that interact with our website. An app we have seen that monitors activity is the ALEXA Internet app to show how a URL ranks on ALEXA Rankings.
Where possible, the app should let a user login to the app. Although, we are happy for it to be similar to Pinterest where it simply redirects the user to a Pinterest pop up and loads the saved logged in user account info.
We had a previous developer try to make us an app and ended up only completing 50%. They left an API on our server ( we can't verify how complete this is) but we did not get the Chrome Store source code.
It would be helpful if devs/freelancers can show us examples of Chrome plugins that they have made as certain previous examples may increase your chance of being selected.
