I am looking for a mobile Developer who will take care for the development of an Android app. The application will be a simple launcher for old people (first app/home screen when device is run) for an Android Tablet (10')

Please find some additional information below:

we would like to get a tablet optimized launcher working both portrait and landscape mode (resolution 1024x600 ).
It will have a simplified user interface similar to android car home app (https://market.android.com/details?id=com.google.android.carhome) but with colors.

It will have an administrator mode (PIN protected) and a user mode

Under user mode it will only be possible to run selected app (notification bar should be also hidden). A special icon (pin keypad showed with random number
position) that opens the full app drawer to access to all the other app will be also available

Under admin mode it will be possible to configure the device (i.e. accessing to the settings menu) and use the configuration icon (PIN protected) to select apps and big icons/images and programs to be used in user mode.

See the first screen wireframe attached.

Below some technical questions for you

A - in order to demonstrate the in-depth knowledge of android, can you please describe me what differentiate an android launcher from normal android app from coding perspective. I mean what do you need to do when you develop it in order to make it become a launcher?

B - can you please tell me if you are going develop the launcher app (with small memory footprint) using the Android SDK or the NDK?

C - can you confirm that the launcher will be a (java?) app (apk) working standalone (also offline) and not an app showing a remote webpage (and therefore requiring an active internet connection to work properly)?

D - Can you also confirm that you are not planning to use one of those web based application framework relying on third parties libraries that runs on remote servers?

Finally can you please provide me your best offer taking into count that being a small project I also have a very small budget (not more than 300)?

Thanks in advance for your time. Feel free to contact me for additional clarification
