Website for Consumer 'Sirculr' Using CakePHP
– Coupons & Deals
Client was very clear on the requirement for this project. The project involves development of a website as well as iPhone application. From the web application one can register as a merchant free and can book the US zip codes for his/her store(s). Further, he also wanted to have abilities in the website so that a merchant can maintain circulars & coupons later. These circulars & coupons are to be shown onto the iPhone application. Client also wanted to us to add abilities so that users can register from themselves in the application as subscribers and can search for circulars as well as can save/clip coupons which are available.
Following the requirement of the client we have developed the website in Cake PHP, MVC framework and its companion iPhone application using iPhone SDK. According to the requisite details, merchants can register for free and book the US zip codes for their stores. Later merchant can maintain circulars & coupons to be shown on to the iPhone application for the booked stores. According to the client's requirement we have implemented functionalities allowing the users to register as subscribers from his/her iPhone using the application; so that he/she can search for circulars and save/clip coupons. We have also added an admin panel having all features on its front-end for merchants & subscribers. We have also developed web services to communicate with the iPhone application.
