A startup tech company came up with an idea for a service based on an individualized IOU currency. This client wanted a solution that would allow users to create a personal currency and use it to trade for favors within a community.
The client required a mobile app to track and manage each member’s currency balance. Softeq also needed to create an admin panel and a landing page.
Softeq delivered an iOS app, admin panel with a backend, and a landing page. The solution has the following features:
To make the UI smooth and responsive, the team employed Texture, an iOS framework built on top of UIKit. The framework does moving image decoding, text sizing, rendering, and other functions, off the main thread. This keeps the thread available to respond to user interaction. Ultimately, this helps optimize the time for executing the entire layout and drawing code.
The app also relies on GetStream.io, an API for building an engaging activity stream, which loads fast, facilitates content discovery, and ensures that users see relevant and current content. The API’s personalization technology leverages machine learning to improve the feed, based on user engagement.
The app is integrated with Facebook and employs the platform enabled user authentication mechanism.
The resulting solution, consisting of an iOS app, admin panel, and a landing page, was delivered on budget and on time. The customer decided to extend the app with an Android version.
