Development Flow

The client had a clear vision of their product development lifetime. However, the first version of the app fell short in terms of usability and some functionality. Our core challenges were how to make an interface user-friendly and bring smooth performance into the app.

    Release

    We met deadlines: the client released an app and the app got appraisal from users.

The Team

The team behind the project faced numerous challenges. Our business analyst researched over 20 apps to find out user needs and get ideas for use cases, and eventually delivered the concept of an app to designers.

The design process was challenging as the app had to be accessible containing multiple details. Once the design was completed, the development team had to meet tight deadlines. Luckily, we've succeeded and provided clients with a compelling real estate application.
