The client contacted us, with a vision to develop an App, that made it possible for parents to find playmates for their kids using the GPS. The App would then enable communication and planning between the parents. The App had already been developed, but as a Cross-platform App, meaning it was not developed specifically for either iOS or Android. Unfortunately, this had caused a number of problems with functionality and user experience. The client, therefore, wanted a professional re-development of PlayMapr.
Find playmates for your kids wherever you are!
We suggested to develop PlayMaps as a Native App, but only for iOS to begin with. This way we could ensure a quality user experience. Moreover, developing the App as a Native gave us the opportunity to give PlayMapr a professional end beautiful design, as well as ensure that the IT-security was second to none.
PlayMapr is developed to function as a platform for a large network of child-families, and when launched it received a lot of praise and publicity for both its vision, design and functionality. The design is highly user-friendly and makes it easy for even grandparents who are not very it-savvy. Moreover, it has now be published in several languages. PlayMapr has integrated the Google Maps GPS-function, as well as multiple social media platforms, and is thus updated with the newest and most popular internet technologies. Finally, a lot of work has been put into making it top-secure, so that parents safely can use the App to arrange playdates for the kids.
PlayMapr was planned and developed from scratch by imangu. The below methodologies were involved in developing this project over a course of 3 months.
It's a really smart app that I could have used it when I was a child!
