Development process

01
Requirements collection and market analysis
Our designer and analyst together with the client thought over each section of the app. Team carefully thought out the main functionality of the two applications and the admin-panel.
02
UX/UI design
We took into account all the states, sizes and behavior of components to speed up the development process and improve the quality of the layout at different screen resolutions.
Together with the client, the developers and designers have thought over the behavior of all screens. Our team provided the client with layouts of all screens, including the admin panel.
03
Backend development
It is very important to develop the back-end infrastructure for these type of application.
04
Mobile application development
The development team started building an iOS app. The most time-consuming work was on broadcasts: displaying statistics during broadcasts, various types of broadcasts, displaying static data at the end of broadcasts. We also worked with in-app purchases.
05
Creating an admin panel
Using the admin panel, you can sort and filter data, search for data, set the user and moderator role, delete users for violations of the application's rules of use.

Admin panel includes:

  • Sorting and filtering data
  • Searching data
  • Data analysis
  • Adding new gifts
  • Remove gifts
  • Assign roles
  • Remove users

Testing and launching

Battles

  • Mutually subscribed streamers can invite one another to a three-minute battle, during which they compete in something: singing, dancing, performing a challenge, etc.
  • The viewer can switch between streamers: one will be displayed in full screen and another as a thumbnail, and vice versa.
  • The viewer gives a gift to the participant they like most. The streamer who gets the most gifts from viewers in three minutes wins the battle.
