iOS App Development

The client wanted an iOS app only. We assigned two iOS developers with 2+ years of experience for this project. Both the developers dived into research to understand the working of a Barcode and QR code scanning app. They needed libraries that can help look up such codes and provide product information. They used Barcode Lookup APIs for this function.

They also developed a feature to generate QR codes with different foreground and background colors using code libraries in the backend using PHP. The entire development was completed within 4 months with all the features, testing, and deployment of the app.
