I need someone to develop an Android widget that shows daily jokes. The daily joke can be placed by the user in two places.

1) Widget: As a widget anywhere on the screen in the following sizes (5x1, 4x1, 4x2, 5x2).

2) AOD: As text on the Always on Display (AOD) screen of Samsung and other supporting phones.

The jokes will be stored in an SQL database.

- There will be 366 rows/jokes (one for each day).

- The joke will show based on the day of the year (day 1, day 59, day 291, etc).

- Columns will include: Day, Text-Free, Text-Paid, Author, Link, Version1, Version2, Version3, Version4, Version5

- There will be 2 versions of the app. Free and Paid.

Paid: Will see a different joke each day of the week from column 'Text-Paid'.

Free: Will see a joke for 5 days and then request to upgrade. (In SQL column 'Text-Free', instead of having a joke on day 6, 21, etc, the text in the database will read "Please support the app and upgrade to Paid. Only $1 for lifetime!")


- After the widget has been added to a homescreen, the user can touch it to open a popup that will occupy 75% of the window (leaving the background visible on all sides). The popup will show the following options...

- Lookup Online (points to the Link column in the database)

- Share Button (Opens Android Share screen for text/email, etc) -- Prefilled with text that says, "I really think you will like this app. [link]"

- Text Color (select from any colors)

- Text Size (Sliding Scale or Dropdown showing text size as example)

- Background Color (Transparent or any other color)

- Opacity (sliding scale)

- Font Face (Dropdown with 3 top fonts)

- Version (Dropdown for Version1-Version5)

- Checkbox to Show or Hide on AOD Screen

- Checkbox to Show or Hide Author

- Style can be Regular or Italics

- Text will be left-aligned starting in the upper left corner of the widget.

- Author text (from Author column) will be right-aligned and appear in the bottom right or the widget.

- Upgrade Button (bottom left)

- Donate Button (bottom right - to the right of the Upgrade Button)


- Background will be transparent

- Text is white/gray font (as used by Samsung)

- Fill 90% width of screen

- All other settings will be same as widget settings (such as size, face, language, style, etc)

- Will display at the bottom of the screen

- Touching the text on the AOD display will not do anything.

Upon completion of the project, all unencoded source code, files, and assets will be sent to me and belong to me.

I will provide access to a VPS server with cPanel and PHPMyAdmin.

Can you build this app???
