Our mobile development team had to build an event application that combined typical event app features such as event creation and RSVP with ETA tracking and status updates. Its goal is to provide users with a practical tool for organizing meetings.
We built an app offering sophisticated features such as sharing the approximate user ETAs 30 mins before the event starts. The app also makes it possible to quickly share status updates with the event organizers.
Droids on Roids made me a part of their team, which I really enjoyed. They allow us to work closely with their team including the developers and QA teammates.
Their project management was excellent. Their team’s communicative and on top of their tasks. We had good communication with the project managers. We had regularly scheduled meetings, but I can also reach out to them at any time. From the project managers to the developers, they’ve been great to work with.
Users can create a new event by following an intuitive step-by-step process displayed on a user-friendly interface.
The next step is inviting people to the event. Users can invite participants via SMS to have them RSVP to the event.
Participants can view event details on a website and respond there – or they can download the app and RSVP directly in-app.
Thirty minutes before the event starts, the participants' ETAs will be automatically shared to help users track everyone's arrival.
Guests can send a quick message to the event organizers to let them know whether or not to wait for them.
All the locations are displayed privately, and users can only see the relative distance of other participants to the event location. Only the guests who RSVP'd as "going" to an event can see the ETAs of other guests.
