iOS Development of Get Fit Buddy

As our client decided to develop Get Fit Buddy application only on iOS platform, we assigned one of our Sr. iOS app developers, who has more than 2.5 years of experience in iOS app development. She first understood our client’s requirements as it was her first fitness application that includes visual food journal. After researching, she started developing Get Fit Buddy application with the required features.

While developing this diet and exercise app, our app developer faced challenges in setting-up chart feature, charts with emoji expressions, and food entry wheel that shows meal entries of the entire day of users. After spending almost 3 to 4 months, our iOS programmer successfully developed Get Fit Buddy application using some of the top tools and technologies.
