I need a mobile site or mobile app built for a website that provides information and self-guided tours. I would like each person that bids explain if they would build a mobile version of the site or a mobile app...and provide details for their decision. There is an existing desktop site that is based in Joomla. If you want to look at the current site, send me a message after you submit a bid and I will send you a link.
It is not necessary for the desktop site and the mobile site (if that is the direction you choose) to share information.
- Mobile site/app needs to provide self-guided tours for mobile users (smart phone, tablet, etc.).
- Would need to use GPS to be able to detect the users location.
- GPS locations would be provided that specify "points of interest" along the tour.
- Each point of interest would have a photo and text description that would be displayed. An audio/video may also be provided and displayed.
Example of the User Experience
- A user is in San Diego, California, USA.
- He/she selects the tour for Downtown San Diego.
- The site/app offers them two choices: 1) start your tour from the beginning, or 2) start your tour from the nearest Point of Interest.
- Based on the selection the user makes he/she is provided with directions (text or audio, please provide quotes for both) to the appropriate Point of Interest.
- When they arrive at the Point of Interest the text, photo, audio, and video files are made available to the user
- The user selects "continue to next location" and is provided with directions to the next Point of Interest.
- The first Point of Interest on the tour would need a welcome message (text, audio or video). The typical message would welcome the user, provide details on the tour, etc.
- The last Point of Interest would have a similar summary message
I am only interested in persons or agencies with experience building mobile apps/sites. Experience building GPS apps/sites will be a major consideration. Please provide examples of work that relate to this project.
I am also open to using existing software or tools to complete this project. If you feel you can complete this project using third-party software please provide details on your proposed approach.
Please send me a message with any questions.
