Our Approach: Our brilliant Astrolab Team created this all-in-one easy-to-use mobile app for both organizers and players. The main goal was to integrate our different services to come up with a holistic product that combines enhanced user experience and superior design while engaging interactive content.

 

Research: The process started with user and market research. We needed to learn more about the target audience, their behavior and triggers. We’ve conducted a deep market analysis, looked at similar platforms to check about the different elements that can help us find solutions to improve the user experience, as we segmented target groups into players and organizers.
Identifying challenges and coming up with solutions:
1) Choosing the right development technology: Solving this core technical challenge required a good understanding from the part of our  highly-knowledgeable team of the different existing frameworks. Accordingly, they decided to built a platform that is flexible enough to be adaptable and scalable, and one that best suits our  target functionality.

 

2) Integrating different OS environment features with our application: With the guidelines of different OS interfaces in mind, we have chosen the best development procedure that suits the operation platform in order for us to succeed in providing flawless service that is compatible on multiple devices. Keen attention was paid to various aspects such as background services, memory use, battery consumption, as well as screen resolutions, sizes, and pixel densities, etc. We used Responsive App Design with convenient patterns to get the app running fluidly across as many devices as possible.

 

3) A great UI/UX design for a self-explanatory application: To start on the right foot, we needed to strategize UI and UX needs. Taking end users into consideration, we were able to set our developmental approach and development timelines. Our teams successfully utilized insights gathered from research to personalize customer experiences and build an application that makes life simple, productive, and pleasant while providing a visually richer experience for our current football content to improve usage and engagement.

 

4) A performant application with an attractive graphic design: This challenge included a running application without crashes or bugs while maintaining fluidity and speed. During the initial stage of the app development, we focused on ensuring that design performs well on all levels. This was done with great focus on using good and clean architecture with the right code in the right place. Combining this with iterative testing and feedback of the different objects and patterns across different stages of development enabled us to reach the desired application flow. Our team was consistently prepared to perform some bug fixing every now and then.

 

The Agile Method: Fully addressing all challenges while challenging our own limits and working according to a plan was perceived through the lens of the Agile Method. The Agile processing provided the adequate framework for assisting our highly-skilled team. It empowered them to optimize release during the application development and facilitated the adaptability to the changing requirements throughout the process while allowing accurate and sharp visibility into the progress of the work. Thanks to this approach, we could build an excellent, scalable, competitive application.
Our long-term goals: Keeping the user happy.
Making it a social app so that users can communicate, connect with existing social media, create discussion groups for teams, check their news feed, express themselves through various media, get notifications, customize their interface, etc, -all this- is an important step to take in the future. Many adjustments will constantly take place while we keep developing and innovating ideas to continually refine the overall aspect of our app.
