Messenger App Development
Quick Connect app – mobile application, designed by ThinkMobiles design office. This is a free messaging & calling app that allows you to easily connect with your friends from all over the world. It’s the all-in-one communications app for free text (SMS/MMS), voice & video calls and content sharing. While working on this project, our team focused on creating both beautiful and comfortable to use app design.
How we started Quick Connect app
It as a challenge for both parts – client and developers to combine usability, experience and best trends in UI and UX. The main idea is for sure – to be social as young people prefer social networking and thus we targeted this auditory. Facebook become most growing and modern network and we started from that. Very first Minimal Value Product included already FB sign in/out and we realized that we go in the right direction especially after first feedbacks from users.
About UX and UI
Per client’s request, we have to be strict to orange and light purple color as the bright contrast of ideas to sustain in mind of your brains. Another challenge was to embed chat and video functionality. We did a list of video SDKs and took 3 best ones. Couple days later, we took best one and started implementation. Chat functionality required from us to use direct messaging with the super fast server to serve the request and synchronize necessary things for this project.
Agility in mobile app development
Very important things to mention is about the Agile process. We have divided the project into stages and stages into sprints to be flexible as much as we could. Flexibility applies in the implementation of new suggestions and features to manipulate scope of jobs to reach the maximum speed of development.
As main functionality was done we started to fix minor bugs which appeared but mostly all was done in 2 weeks and the client got his app ready to launch in App Store.
