Project description

Brainbean Apps was asked to build Kwippy from scratch. Initially, the client wanted the app to have a very limited set of features, but since then both of the parties have been suggesting a lot of new ideas for implementation. So the functionality has been gradually growing and the whole project has taken us 2+ years before the app hit the market. At the moment we’re working on the 2.0 version for the Android platform.

Challenges

  • Complex and interesting multi-layered UI
  • The app works with a huge sets of images, so it is crucial to keep the performance on top at all times
  • Working with camera on the API level

Achievements

  • This was our first time when we’ve used Kotlin. It proved itself as a way to develop apps faster if the team is comfortable with this language.
  • Proper application of the composition over inheritance principle showed its long-term benefits for the product.
