Challenges and Solutions

This project was complex in terms of the broad level of functionalities with strict deadlines to deliver native iOS and Android mobile applications. The client wanted us to streamline app with responsive interface to quickly make purchase, download and play audiobooks with or without Internet connection basically called data/file synchronization and play any chapter of audiobook in the custom built-in audio player.

We implemented robust in-app purchases, data synchronization, and a custom audio player to make efficient searching, purchasing, downloading and audiobooks playing. This project was one of our big successes and an honor to work for the education industry.
