Client Overview

Our client offers a popular social sharing app that allows its users to participate in challenges and post them in the app. These challenges encourage the user to post videos or photos and share them with their friends. The app gets more appealing as each user gets to earn points or a reward if they participate in a challenge.

The platform also features several business partners who can upload products that users can buy via coupons they earned earlier. It is an interactive app where users and businesses can enjoy certain shared benefits.

 

This feature-rich social sharing app was designed and developed by the developers of Saffron Tech; they offered them a secure and more interactive app development solution. The solution includes our native app development services and an ASP.Net solution that would help them manage a massive user base with APIs & an admin Panel on both app and website.

Challenges/Aim

The aim was to develop a robust, responsive, and interactive app using a suitable app development approach while ensuring that the app launches quickly. The purpose was to create a high-performing app and a secure one that provides users with a premium user experience. For the overall management of the site, we had to develop a dedicated web-based admin panel.

Solution Offered

We offered a Native app development approach for their mobile application with an ASP.Net solution for backend development. The ASP.NET framework allows us to utilize native optimization, early binding, caching services, and just-in-time compilation.

It requires less coding, maintenance and provides seamless development support. With new upgrades and enhancements, the core framework offers highly optimized codes that deliver improved app performance. The ASP.NET Core fulfills all the business requirements as it provides different types of web app development and mobile backend along with IoT application development.
