With the help of Touchlane’s staff augmentation service, our customer’s got its mobile photo editor & collage maker application refactored and enhanced with new features helping its users enrich their photos and shape nice collages.
- Staff Augmentation Service
- Industry: Photo editing, Entertainment
Our Customer’s Android application for creating collages needed significant improvements due to the regular crashes, so the Client approached our team with a request:
- To enhance the overall app performance by fixing the bugs of the previous development team on the Client’s side
- Updating the interface
- Providing the opportunity for advertisement placement
The Client requested to complete the project as quick as possible so our engineering team had to perform the whole scope of tasks in no longer than 2 weeks.
Lack of Specification Documentation
In view of the lack of specification documentation, our Android team had to examine the legacy code of the app and fix the crashes based on their own expertise and experience.
Integration with Notification Services
Since the Client planned to tune in-app push notifications, it was needed to set integrations with OneSignal notification service.
Phase / 01.
Discovery, Tech Consultancy and Team Formation
At the outset, we conducted several discussions with the Client to gather more information about the project and the scope of tasks that needed to be done.
As a result of the discovery stage, we have come up with a detailed plan of the activities to be undertaken, including covering:
- team formation, and
- tech solutions to be implemented.
After the careful estimation of the planned amendments, our engineering team got down to detecting and fixing the issues existing in the code.
Phase / 02.
Core Changes and Launch
Once the app started to function properly, the UI was updated which helped to improve the performance by eliminating glitches and enhance the overall user experience.
Next, the addition of new features took place. Our Android experts successfully set a smart photo search and a complex integration with the push notification service which solved the problem with ad placement in the app.
Upon implementation of all changes as initially planned and approved by the Customer we helped the Client with the app's release, which was a point where the app got its ultimate appearance.
