    Just as a quick introduction, my name is Dan Manners. I'm a student at the University of Hartford currently in the Music Education Program. I'm a vocal emphasis major, and in my spare time, I love being on the computer and tinkering.
    I've been doing this for quite a while now, and now that I have purchased a droid, I want to learn Java so that I can share my ideas with the community in a focused, finished application form. However, until my skills improve from little understanding of Java, I would like to make an offer to the community.
    I understand that there is a significant calling for a new, better facebook application, and I would like to ask any and all of this community for help on developing this application. Below, I have specified what I would like to do. Obviously this can all be down-scaled based on what is currently possible and whatnot.


    Code:
    Faceless Proposition
    
    What I want it to be (INITIAL RELEASE):
    A Facebook client, Facebook that has nearly unrestricted
    possibilities.
    To name a few:
        -News Feed
        -Friends Chat
        -Photos
            -View Photos
            -Take Photos
            -Upload Photos
        -Profile Viewer
        -Search Engine
            -Group Search
            -App Search
            -Profile Search
            -Phone Search
                -'Click & Call' System (importing phone numbers
                                    into Phone Application)
    
        -Inbox
        -Requests
        -Event Calendar (Including Birthdays)
        -Status Updates
    
    What I want to be (FUTURE RELEASES):
        -Facebook Video Viewer
    
    So...do I have any potential takers on helping with this project?
    Ideally, I need a programmer or two (I would be helping there once I am able to realistically code slightly more fluently) and someone to potentially do graphics (can be the same person, I don't care all that much).

    Feel free to email or message me, or just leave me a note here.

    Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks guys in advance.

    -Dan

    Geez it's been a little while since the original post.

    The problem with creating a Facebook app like this, is you need to have access to Facebook's resources to do it.

    All of facebook's API's are up on their developer wiki, so it actually seems like a legitimate project idea.

    Facebook Developers btw, if anyone wants to check it out.
