Experience Level: Intermediate
We have a website which provides user reviews of accommodation in Europe (about 800 places reviewed, 3500 reviews), and want an iPhone App developing to enable users to browse existing reviews, add new reviews and also add new locations. Therefore not unlike TripAdvisor, but focussed on a specific niche.

Key requirements are as follows:-

Search Facility:-

By Town, By Name of Establishment & Nearest to Current Location
Search results should be shown as a list of properties (nearest match first) as well as being shown on a map.

Both the list and pins on the map should be clickable to go to a detailed page for that establishment, which would probably have 3 tabs - Summary Details / Reviews / Map (maybe don\'t need this) All these tabs would have a button to \"Review this property\".

Add New Review of a property

The user should be asked to provide a review comprising a one-liner headline + a star rating + their detailed review. If they haven\'t already done so, they should also be asked to provide their name & a password which could be common to the App and our website. These details will also need to be stored locally on the App so that they\'re not asked to enter it if they have already done so.

We\'d ideally also like them to be able to include a photo ( or take one if they are at the location currently), which would then be written back to our database on the website. If this was possible, we\'d also therefore need an extra tab on the page for an individual establishment - so Summary / Reviews / Photos / Maps.

Add New Location
First thing is to let them search to see if it already exists on the database (by town, establishment name, current location etc), and if not, allow them to specify the exact location of the property by browsing to it on a map (or just based on their current location), together with details about the property such as Name, Address, Website etc. At the end of the process, give them a button to allow them to review it.

Obviously that\'s a bit of a snapshot, but hopefully should give you a rough idea of the requirements. Technical details are that the website uses a MySql database in conjunction with PHP; we currently just use Google Maps and GeoLocation to allow searches by Town etc, so don\'t have our own towns database.

We\'re looking for bids from people who can demonstrate that they\'ve developed similar things in the past, and can provide us with examples we can check out. Absolutely essential too that you\'ve experience (and success) in getting these Apps onto the AppStore!
