Android Maps App (GOOGLE API) with direct messaging and GPS current position, using a MySQL VPS server

This is a personal project.

Create a map-based ANDROID app with messaging between users that obtains the client's position from his device and other data from a remote MySQL server.

When requesting more information you will receive a PDF with a screen-by-screen explanation of the app.

The app will display a GOOGLE map through the API (account already created, request credentials) with the current position of the user, and several pins on the map (messages that other users have pinned on the map).

These messages last only 24 hours.

Each user can post one message on the map at a time.



Displays the google map with pins within a 5km radius posted in the last 24h. Each pin is an icon that the user who posted it has chosen from a list according to the topic of conversation. Each pin has an icon, a text of up to 500 characters, and a duration of 24 hours. The user can fix the pin for 7 days by purchasing an "Echo", which is a €1 / $1 payment through Google Play.

Tapping on each pin opens a popup with the text of the pinned message.


A list of nearby pinned messages is displayed. The radius is 5km. Tapping on each pin opens a new window with the text of the pinned message with the icon and the information of the user who posted it.


Gets the user's current location and asks for an icon (image from a list), a text of up to 500 characters, and the duration: 24 hours for free, or 7 days for a fee.


It is a message center where users can communicate with each other. It is a simple chat, only text and emojis. A user can only find another user through the map or the list. Tapping on the avatar of each user accesses the profile, where a message is displayed to start a conversation. Usual message management (delete conversations, block users, order by date, etc...).


The profile of each user. It shows an avatar to choose from a list, a bio, and the last 5 pins published, showing if any of them is still active (last 24 hours).

The development progress of the app will be done through milestones, being these the following:

#1 / 20€ : Create app with bottom menu according to provided resources. Create the five menu items. They must change color when the user is in each one. Icons only, no text. No side menus or top bars. Clean white interface. The app must show a spash screen with the logo, and have the icon already set up.

#2 / 30€ : Connection of the app with the VPS server. We will work together without giving direct access to the developer, but following his instructions, to connect the app with remote MySQL. Example tables and data are provided. The app must display on any screen the result of an example query to test the connection with the server, usually "select text from testtable where id = 1".

#3 / 50 : GOOGLE MAPS API setup. Credentials are provided for the configuration. The goal is to display in the first menu item, the MAP, a google map showing the user's current location in simple mode, with a blue dot, dynamically.

#4 / 50 : Show on the map the icons and messages of the example tables. Make the points on the map clickable, so that they open the popup with the complete information of the message.

#6 / 50 : Show the same messages (pins) in LIST mode. Second item in the lower menu.

#7 / 50€ : User registration, user profiles and login.

#8 / 50€: Creation of pins from the app. Example data is no longer used.

#9 / 50€: Messaging system between users.

#10 / 130€: Google play payments for 7 days pins.

#11 / 20€: Help to publish the app.

Ask for more info of each milestone before. Exact budget without negotiations. 500€.

Ask for PDF with more info. All necessary resources are provided.

Maximum deadline 3 months.
