Our challenge

Our goal was to develop an app for a Wi-Fi Display (Android), an iOS app for managing it, and backend for supporting these products. The biggest challenge – the user should be able to upload any amount of media files to any amount of channels – this consumes an enormous amount of memory and bandwidth. At the same time, we had to make sure that the app is still responsible while the upload is progressing.

Our solution

In iOS app development, we decided to use highly efficient tools like Realm or Texture which covered the database notifications and UI respectively. When it comes to Display development – it doesn’t have a touchscreen – so the whole navigation we were developing had to match this device’s characteristic. We created our own custom architecture dedicated to Loop app. In backend development, we created a client direct upload flow using AWS services like S3, Lambda, and Elastic Transcoder.

Testimonial

We especially value Droids On Roids for their responsiveness, smooth communication, and really agile approach – they reacted quickly to our guidelines, which were ever evolving during the development. The last, but not least asset of our partner was their transparency – we knew exactly how much the team works and what we were paying for.
