in search of... app developers ios & android trash share

Post by zian » Sun Sep 24, 2017 6:06 am

Howdy,
It's beautiful where I live in West Virginia USA. But it's very dirty. Lots of trash litter and lazy slobs to cheap to do things proper.
I want to help clean my street, town, city, county, state .... you get the drift.

In case this isn't allowed here.... go here...

ISO App Developer/s Android & iOS.
Wanted budding/learning/professional coders.
Location/Map based app.
Free/Volunteer/Donate.
The app would show users the location of free open dumpsters & trash cans that they can put their trash into in their area by way of pins on a map... City or county for example.
The app would also need an alert/submit function to...
1. Let the refuse company know that a dumpster is full and ready for pickup.
2. Alert users to not use that can/dumpster.
Red pin (on map) it's full.
Green pin... Available can/dumpster.
Users could also submit their own cans and dumpsters to the app/map and allow them to be added to the map for people to find and use that can/dumpster.
The app should be simple and lightweight in design and function easily without much thought or a learning curve. Simple straightforward.
Maybe also a point reward system of some type down the road.
See a mattress in a stream?
Or an old rotten couch on the side of a road?
It can be reported via app.
Maybe as simply as a pic with GPS data.
There is no interview, no resume needed, no appointments required. Just do it.
Any questions feel free to ask.
I look forward to seeing and testing what you can code for us.
Thank you sincerely.

I have no experience with android/ios apps. However i have done a similar web app for tracking my dog's gps location. I think it's a better way to go on this sort of thing as it's cross platform. I don't have a lot of time to donate to the project but am happy to share the base code to get you started. & answer any questions you may have.

I have it setup in eventghost using the webserver plugin. So this is something you could manage bin location/availability, alerts directly within an e.g. script.
