Both Rui and Leena have experience and references regarding their software and development skills, and will provide work samples upon request.
From Leena Prasad, who specializes in haiku, senryu and other Japanese-inspired poetic forms:
So, you have written several haiku, senryu, or tanka. Maybe you have a collection of haiga. Now what? You can publish them in a book but, really, smart phone apps are where people are spending a lot of their time and these Japanese inspired forms are well-suited for the small screen. I converted my senryu book ‘not exactly haiku’ into an iPhone/iPad app and can do the same for you. I can also create an Android version. Check out my app by searching for it in the Apple iStore or by following the links at ThinkersInk.com.
Basic app package for $200:
- cover page with 3 menu items (Favorite, Contents, More…)
- one author page
- 20 pages (screens and menu similar to ‘not exactly haiku’)
- ability to mark each page as favorite and email and tweet the text content
- a “more” page with six buttons, one of which links to the author page and five which can link to any url.
Yearly Fee: $5/year to keep the app in the online store.
- Additional static screens, $3/page: screens and menu similar to ‘not exactly haiku’.
- Additional dynamic screens, $TBD: customized screens with buttons, etc.
From Rui Carvalho, who handles all types of poetry, including short prose poems and flash fiction:
I offer top quality apps for Windows Phone and Android. Each app is intended to be a valuable asset for poets who want to value their work and present it to friends and readers all around the world. The standard content is: i) 20 poems; ii) short presentation of the author with maximum of two screens and one photo (optional); iii) a link to an existing website of the author and iv) an inspiration photo per group. If desired, it is possible to add extra poems and/or a short quiz (an extra fee will be applied). The app will be available for countries as USA, Canada, UK, and many others. Additionally, it will be possible to produce apps for iPhone if the author needs at least one app per platform. Also there is the possibility to have a small app, with link to your existing website and 3 poems, for just $45 and $5 as yearly fee. We can talk to know your needs and adapt our app.
