Our Client

The client wanted to develop a unique and extensive mobile app that kept running as its core function. To help people stay healthy and fit, the client wanted to develop a mobile app that encourages people to run and meditate for physical and mental health.

Client Requirements

  • Offer various features and functionalities for running and meditation for registered users.

Proposed Solution

We proposed a mobile app that is fast, reliable, and easy to use on both Android and iOS devices. Our approach involved using Swift for iOS development and Kotlin for Android development, which allowed us to take advantage of each platform’s strengths. We also used the Laravel framework for the backend, and the database solution is MySQL. The app is hosted on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud platform, which is highly scalable and reliable.
