Matt’s brief was for us to deliver a simple Android application that would relay GPS information from his phone to the electric car challenge website. Adhering to agile principles, a working prototype of the Coderus mobile application was created over two days with a single iteration before being passed down to Matt for stakeholder approval.
In terms of design, our UI Designers made use of some Android design elements that would create an exceptional visual experience, including collapsing the toolbar layout. Our UI design process follow all necessary material design guidelines to ensure the app was both fully functional and visually appealing.
During the design and development process, efficiency was key when it came to adhering to a very short timeframe. The app was quality tested and read to go in time for Matt’s epic journey. To provide Matt with some flexibility we ensured that the UI worked beautifully across a variety of Android devices using cross-platform integration.
When it came to the testing and development stages, our developers targeted the latest version of Android to make use of the latest platform features, with the native application written in Java and supporting Android Lollipop 5.0 and up. The location data was provided by the Android Framework to make use of high accuracy code.
