Abstract of Live weather app

Our Client and His Project Requirements

Based in Ireland, our client is an entrepreneur who keeps visiting different countries for his work. He often used to get stuck in the rain or snow during his visits, and because of this, he had to face many troubles. He relied on several weather apps. However, no app offered him all the weather information at a time.

In fact, he spent a lot of time finding an app that can fulfill all his expectations to check weather reports. However, all his efforts went in vain. It was getting difficult for him and his colleagues to manage their work with the bad weather and inadequate weather applications.

Later, he realized that he is not the only one who is facing this challenge. Like him, many people want the best weather radar app to plan their outings, meetings, and travel without getting stuck in the bad weather. Therefore, he decided to create a weather app that provides real-time weather updates 24/7 for any location.

Our client also mentioned that he wants to add a feature that shows different colors based on the climates. For example, whenever the app screen turns blue, snow is expected to fall in that particular region. Several such colors help to identify different weathers instantly, such as rain, snow, thunderstorm, hurricane, lightning, wind, and flood.

Client and His Project Requirements

Solution We Offered to Our Client

He got this weather app idea and contacted us with his requirements. As he has already worked with Space-O before, he knows that we are capable of delivering the best results to our clients.

At first, our business team helped him with the structural view of the entire project, and for that, we prepared a WBS (Work Breakdown Structure) document. We suggested our client develop 2 different modes – landscape mode and portrait mode. Along with this, we offered to add the dark and light mode feature to enhance the experience of app users.

Our developers also enhanced the feature that shows different colors based on the climates. We offered an animated view for the app users that makes it easy for them to check the weather at different times. With animation, the color changes for different weathers, and app users get to know that the climate is going to change after a certain time.

Challenges We Faced

We didn’t face any significant challenges while developing the Live Weather Radar app. However, when we planned to use the Aeris SDK in our app, it was getting very costly that it might have gone over the decided budget.

We can never let this happen to any of our clients. Therefore, our expert app developers created customized logic that would help send weather alerts to the users without affecting the app development budget.

To walk the extra mile, app developers coordinated with the support team of Aeris SDK and found out the easiest method that fits within the budget. The hard work of the team behind this application proved again that we always use the best endeavors for delivering great results.

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.
