Our client Nate Larkin is passionate about making memorable printing gifts for her clientele. At first, she was having a website where people used to order photo print online. She has customers who requested her to make a mobile app so that they can contact her in an instance.
Her business had a huge iOS-based mobile app clientele, so she came up with a very clear idea to develop the best online photo printing mobile app for the iOS platform. She wanted a simpler Ecommerce mobile app version for her printing business that can fulfill the urge of her customers.

iOS App Development
As our client wanted an iOS app we assigned this app to one of our iOS app developer having a 2 years experience and had built such photo apps before. Little did we know about the Ecommerce website that our USA client had, was a customized magento website.
The website had no readymade APIs that could directly be used for mobile app development. To meet the requirement of API web services our developer had to perform reverse Magento engineering and extend the obtained API.
This task was very crucial to perform as the slightest mistake could have caused damage of losing the client’s current Ecommerce website. Eventually, the developer successfully developed an application from a Magento customized website in 3 months.
Technologies used for converting the Magento website into an Ecommerce mobile app development:-
