Once we were acquainted with the content, we developed the concept of the service along with our client’s Team – a walk along the Blues Trail, supported by a mobile app for both iOS and Android systems. Technically, the task we were faced with was concerned with developing the software for the application but it was even more important to engage the target group for the app.
How do you design a service, which makes it possible to discover places in Silesia where blues developed in Poland during its golden era?
The Client wanted the Silesian Blues Trail application to be a multiplatform one. At the same time, because of limited budget, the cost of developing it and maintaining were supposed to be as low as possible.
We suggested a solution based on HTML5, JS and Cordova with a dedicated API for communication between the application and a CMS system used to manage the application data by the Client. In order to adjust the application to the so-called design language of the particular system (Android, iOS) it was necessary to adjust some elements of the application to these environments.
Finally, the applications were published in Google Play and the App Store.
