I have an existing iPhone application (I have the iOS Source code), that needs to have additional functionality. It is a bus passenger counting system. Currently it counts people who get on the bus at each stop. When the driver presses the counter button it records 1 record and stores it until the data is uploaded to my webserver. The additional functionality that I need is:
1. Add a second counter for people that get off at each stop to be recorded in the same way. I have designed the new psd file to use as the new skin.
2. Add a new field that captures rider type (this is a scrolling top field that would record different rider types when pressed. The default would be 'Regular', but you could select 'Transfer', 'Handicap', 'Bike', '+5', 'User#1', 'User#2', 'User#3', 'User#4', or 'User#5')
3. Currently there is a manual upload to my server. I would like to add the ability to automatically detect a WiFi/Internet connection and automatically upload the data. This would be user selectable to either turn on or off.
- The current upload is slow with hundreds of records, so we are looking for a way to speed it up or at least do the upload in the background.
- We need to make sure that the data is valid (i.e. no duplicates, all records uploaded)
In addition to these new features, there are several small changes that I need done, as follows:
1 App - do not reset current stop location when settings are changed, only reset when Route is changed
2 App - also allow route and Stop count reset if you press 'ON' and 'OFF' at the same time for 2 seconds
3 App - correct language when there are no records to upload, currently states, "There is no any record to uplaod!", change to "There are no records to upload!"
4 App - If 'Next Stop' or 'Previous Stop' has not been pressed for 'x' minutes, then pop up reminder
5 App - If there has been inactivity for more than 150minutes, open settings screen
6 App - Settings - move Driver to top, then Route, then Bus, then Plus #
7 App - Settings - Format text of Driver field to be BOLD RED and Route field to be BOLD BLUE and Bus field to be BOLD GREEN
8 App - Settings - show "Last successful upload: [timedate]"
9 App - Settings - UDID display for customer reference
10 App - Settings - view/hide total count
11 App - Report upload - speed up, put into background
If you are interested in this project, I can send you picture files of the current app and the new skin.
Also, the original developer is sick and therefore not able to continue on this project, so I am looking for someone who will want to continue with the development of this project.
Future development will include this app collecting and using GPS data and porting it to Android, so if you have experience working with GPS and Android that's a plus. And if it's something that you want to do now, that could justify more money, but it still needs to be done quickly.
