Social entertainment app

Situation

Swedish company Social Solutions got in touch with Unicsoft on mobile project Mingrl – a social application. At that time, the client had 2 mobile versions of the application: the iOS application had been published, whereas Social Solutions had some development issues with the Android version. App for Android was under development by another company, and part of the program was already written. But the company failed to meet the deadline and to deliver the quality of work according to the client’s expectations, so Social Solutions were looking for a highly experienced mobile development company which would be able to effectively implement the project within a very short period of time. So the client’s goal was not to miss the planned launch day.

Solution

The first step of our collaboration was detailed review of the project’s technical specifications and the IOS version of the application. In order to assess real state of work-in-progress Android application, Unicsoft conducted a thorough QA and code review. Also, we created a report identifying scope of work remaining yet to be done, list of bugs and recommendations regarding code quality improvements.  During the assessment, we found a number of bugs, and the most critical of them caused a serious battery charge leakage. In order to fix the code and accelerate product launch, Unicsoft offered Social Solutions fully managed project development. Due to the fact that the deadline was tough and the development required tight supervision, Unicsoft allocated a Project Manager and two Senior Android Developers.

In order to make up for the time lost, the programmers were working overtime. The development was carried out under SCRUM methodology. The process implied regular interim results demonstrations as well as discussions of the additional features and further tasks.

 

Result

Unicsoft’s expertise and the fast speed mode, kept by our PM, allowed completing application on time and publishing it on the Google Play. Development, or better to say re-work of the application, took about 3 months.  Unicsoft was in charge not only of the coding part, but full project management, as well as the launch on the public app market, which made whole implementation process more convenient for the customer.

Minglr is an Android application, its main goal is providing a social entertainment guide that can give your spare time a greater variety and a better overview of what is offered in your surroundings.
