iPhone/iPad App for LGBT Comics

Hi Seattle iPhone folks!

I recently posted a Craigslist ad seeking an iPhone/iPad developer for a project, and thought I would share it with the group as well. My own iPhone OS skills still too limited to tackle this project and end up with a professional-quality­ result.

Let me know if you're interested and would like to discuss the project further!



I am working with a publishing company that will be offering a line of graphic novels and comics collections aimed at adult readers and catering to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender readers. 

Digital distribution was planned as a big part of the business model, but the content restrictions placed by Apple on everything sold through their store will make this very difficult. Our books will include some content aimed at adults only, and Apple forbids such content from being bought on their digital stores, or via "in-app" purchase. The Kindle app is not a viable option, due to unfavorable sales terms and poor presentation of comics content. 

I am investigating developing a dedicated comics reader app and website that will work in tandem to allow website purchase and over-the-Internet syncing to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. This app will serve only our publishing company initially, but will be offered to other publishers in the future. 

Seeking programmer with solid iPhone OS development skills who is familiar with creating apps that work seamlessly and securely with Internet resources. Good UI and design skills are preferable. 

Please provide links to existing apps available in the App Store. Links to online portfolio and resum? welcomed.
