I am looking for an experienced Android app developer to create an Android app that allows users to browse, search and download our online database of ringtones (including the option to play them), notification sounds, ebooks and wallpapers (with more categories potentially to add).
We basically want our app to have the same features and functionality as the Zedge app with the addition of user comments, but incorporating our design (attached). Please see the Zedge app available via Google Market.
Like the Zedge app, users will NOT be required to log in to search / browse / download***, however I want a user login option in order to synchronize a users favourites added outside the application (via the web). Additionally, we want a like/dislike button on the download information pages (only for those users who are logged in).
The "main activitiy" of the app, like Zedge, will contain a list of categories with a bottom menu (Home, Downloads, Favourites, More). These categories will direct the user to a gallery page which is laid out according to the category. Wallpapers need to be listed in grid form, Ringtones in list form.
Pressing the phone menu button will provide a menu exactly the same as what Zedge provide.
When a user downloads or favourites an item, this information needs to be synchronized with the users' online account (if they are logged in). The information also needs to be stored on their device and available in the "Downloads" and "Favourites" menu in the main activity.
The app will be communicating with a PHP/MySQL backend, which with some liaising, I can build. Please PM details of the REST method and format you intend on using for response data. I am most familiar with JSON.
If anything is unclear, please send me a PM.
- ***I would like the option of stopping guest downloads if need be and revert to a download credit/limit system.
- I will require all source code and files for the completed application.
