our application in version 1 is almost finished. We are talking about 2 applications (iOS and Android) communicating through a server.

1. fluent english ( we request proof )
2. comprehensive experience in iOS and Android app projects (portfolio requested)
3. direct contact to the programmer (please ensure 1. english!)

You will be provided with a very comprehensive documentation for all APIs etc.
