Case Study : Social Networking App Development
Trade-n-Play is an iOS app to trade video games.
What was the client expecting from Perception System?
The client was looking for an iOS app based platform to exchange the proprietary video games mainly used for PlayStations, Xbox & Nintendo. The client wanted to facilitate iOS app users to find the video games collection in the vicinity of the app users using location-based services. The game trading should be accomplished using in-app purchase features available on iOS platform.
How did Perception System evaluate the client’s needs?
We evaluated client’s needs by applying standard project requirement strategies and methodologies. After thorough analysis, we listed following features and functions that client-side was demanding from us.
- The client wanted faster data processes to offer the best performance of the iOS app to its end-users.
- The system also demanded lightweight UIs designs to load graphics and UI elements rapidly.
- To create game exchanging platform, built-in messaging modules were essential to enable seamless and instant communication among the game exchangers.
- In-app purchase modules and payment gateway integration seemed an essential feature.
- Efficient database management was a prime need to make data exchanges faster between apps and servers involved in the data exchanges.
- There was a need for rich user interface with essential UI elements required to provide all expected functionality and features in the app.
- Built-in messenger functionality had prime importance to enable rapid and effective communication.
- The core business logic was to exchange games and manage the coins used by the app users for game exchanging.
