The Idea Generation

Who thought about such an idea?

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.

Idea generation

Where were we found?

After deciding to develop a mobile app, our client started finding the best iOS app development company. In this era of the digital wave, she found us on Google SERP where our Ecommerce service page is ranking high.

Our sales representative consulted her to know the app idea and discussed the requirements. From her end she was very precise about the mobile app development, thus it took minimal time to understand her app building concept.

Our Initial Step

After our sales representative understood the requirements, she immediately made a WBS (Work Break Down Structure) for the developers and the client to be in a loop. We at Space- O have developed 3500+ apps and believe in a professional and strict communication pattern with every client. Such structures are made to ensure the client that the app is made taking proper measures and in a proper time period.

Our client gave a green signal to our WBS and we started working to convert the Ecommerce website into an Ecommerce mobile app development. This photo printing app allows the users to custom set their photo size with editing, cropping and selecting the printing material.

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.

Programming Language:

swift4

The Space-O team were great to work with. Every part of the process went as per the agreed schedule, and the finished prototype met, and in most cases, exceeded my expectations. While Space-O wasn’t the most price competitive of the quotes I received, the quality of their work, professionalism, and product, was well worth the additional cost. Highly recommend, and will continue to use their services for future projects.
