Problem

Samsung required a service provider with strong front-end design experience to meet particular graphic guidelines, and a certain technical competence to implement the back-end functionality.

Softeq had earned a reputation of a development company with a strong UI design and mobile development expertise capable of delivering on the promise.

Solution

Softeq created a fully functional prototype of the app for Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and Samsung Galaxy Note II, thus targeting the multimillion army of the Samsung fans.

The application supports subscription-based access to the movies delivered by a media distribution network in a variety of formats driven by Android and provides for the following capabilities:

  • Browsing through the video library, ranging from movies to series to cartoons
  • Viewing details on a movie of choice
  • Watching trailers or movies
  • Searching across the library by movie title, actor or director name
  • Adding/removing an item to/from the favorites
  • Profile and subscription management

Some of the app features called for extra brainwork and skills. Thus the team realized asynchronous data streaming fed from a server, which brings timely updates to the user’s display without blank screen interruptions thanks to caching.

On the visual side, the standard player skin was changed to strictly comply with the graphic style elaborated by Samsung for the given project.

Results

The fully functional prototype was delivered on time and on budget, ready for demonstration.
