Seren Technologies Inc. is a Vancouver based tech start up that aspires to build the best mobile applications that make a positive impact on the user’s lives. They approached us with the aim of developing mobile applications that provides users a platform to connect with common interests. Hence, Seren the Social Networking App was designed to follow this vision.
The scope of the project involves the design and development of a social networking app for both iPhone and Android platform. The app allows user to login via email and using social media login with Facebook. They can create events in 10 different categories with the details like image of the event, description, location, date, time and total number of members. The users have the options to check-in, upload photos in the form of memories. The app also has social features like group chat, sharing of images, videos & audio files similar to Whatsup. The users can rate, review, like, comment, favourite the events. The can also share on social media such as Facebook, Twitter
Social networking platforms are the most convenient, quick and easy methods of communication in the present scenario. The user friendly interface and instant information sharing features of the social networks are the major drivers for the social networking market. Within last few years, market has seen increasing number of social networks such as Instagram, Snap Chat getting enormous popularity. These image-centric and many other social networking solutions are further going to pay wave for new business opportunities for players offering solutions and services related to social networking.
Seren App was designed with a simple clean and attractive user interface. The group chat module and sharing feature similar to What’s app is one of the key ingredient of this app. This was built using Open fire chat server. This is a powerful instant messaging (IM) and chat server that implements the XMPP protocol. The application also allows the data to be stores offline making social networking limit free from internet connection.
Based on our work experience on this project we have gained the credibility for ourselves to develop applications for various other services industries using different tools and libraries. The knowledge earned on this project will help us to render effective solutions and robust applications with emerging technologies for all our clients across the globe.
