Have a small business that is looking to purchase a mobile app. Lots of ready-made options out there for a monthly fee. Problem is that if you cancel your service, you loose your app and customers. Want a permanent app solution. However, we do not know what is needed for a mobile app to even properly seek bids for a custom mobile app and/or app developer.
Would like to learn about what is needed to build an iPhone and / or android app that includes:
• Loyalty App Feature
o Cashier Check-In Confirmation
o Point based
Points depend on item purchased
o Reward options
• Events Calendar
• E-Commerce (If Possible)
• Business Info
• Social Media Sharing
• Push Notifications
• Ability to update item selection (i.e. beverages, sell items, etc.) via some sort of online database, so no app update is needed.
The project request is to simply create and provide a detailed account of all aspects of such a mobile app. Looking to know:
• Programming language(s) required
• Average development time in hours (programming only)
o Design not necessary, have a designer
o Apple Developer license already obtained
• Server space / hosting requirements
• Database requirements
• Website portal requirements
• App development steps required
Note: Person or company chosen for this small project will be first in-line to build the app when time arrives.
