Experience Level: Intermediate

We currently have an free web based iOS application on the app store, which aims to help students in the UK apply to medical school. We would like a developer to convert this to a native app, whilst adding some new features. It is called ApplyMed.

The app currently on the App Store is called ApplyMed and is built with Buzztouch and jQuery. Although relatively quick and nice to look at, it lacks a few key features which are essential for our business.


- A way for users to contact us from within the app. This can be a simple email form if necessary but something a little more functional would be ideal. We used to have an integrated third party SDK called Scringo in the past which allowed us to chat with the users and for them to chat to each other within the app. Unfortunately Scringo recently stopped operating so a replacement is needed.

- If possible, social integration with Facebook or Twitter would be neat but not essential.

- Favourites. At the moment, users can choose from a list of schools but they have no way of saving or favouriting the ones they are particularly interested in.

- Graphs. The admission statistics are currently displayed as numbers in a drop-down list. We would like the most important, such as offers, interviews and rejections summarised in a more aesthetically pleasing chart - perhaps a donut? The examples on the chartist.js website are similar to what we are after. The users could click on the chart which would then display more detailed data.

- Native or web-based? Something we would need to discuss. We would like to be on Android phones as well in the future.

- A content management system. We have a lot of data! We need an easy way of manipulating all the statistics and grade requirements etc as these will change year on year.

+ More. We have lots of ideas! This is likely to be an ongoing project with plenty more work on offer - Extra features, other apps (ApplyVet/ApplyDent etc) and simpler stuff like updating the data when necessary.

We are not looking for the cheapest. We want a fast, fluid, aesthetically pleasing app of a high quality. Please only bid if you have some example apps published with plenty of features and content that we can have a look at.

Would it be possible to get a quote for how much this might cost?

Thanks for reading,
