Overview

Video streaming has become the biggest content trend in recent times. Watching short-form videos on phones and smart TVs has become a norm. Our client, one of the well-known TV content producers, wants to build a dedicated application for swimming sports in the US. The idea was to offer on-demand swimming-related content directly to fans, athletes, and coaches with mobile apps and smart TV apps. They connected with vrinsoft to develop a comprehensive app suite, including iOS, Android, Android TV, and Apple TV versions. This case study will provide detailed information on how we approached and completed this project.

Our Client

The client offers a wide range of connected TV solutions, including OTT platforms and more. They wanted to build an app that offers everything about swimming and training under one roof. This will help all who wish to swim professionally, athletes of all ages. This solution is also for coaches, officials, and swimming enthusiasts to stay up to date with recent news in swimming. To reach a wider audience, they want to build a connected system of iOS and Android apps along with Android Smart TV and Apple TV.

Client Requirements

  • Develop a mobile app suite for iOS, Android, Android TV, and Apple TV.
  • Provide a platform for delivering engaging content to swimming fans.
  • Offer athletes and coaches access to training resources and event information.
  • Ensure a user-friendly and intuitive app interface.

Proposed Solution

We created a mobile app suite for iOS and Android using Swift and Kotlin, respectively. We also used similar technologies for tvOS and Android TV. This approach ensures fast performance, a user-friendly experience, and access to specific device features. By building native apps for each platform, we make sure that the apps can take full advantage of the capabilities of each device. This includes features like hardware acceleration, GPS, and offline storage for caching content.

Why We Chose This Solution

To provide a performant and user-friendly application, we developed both apps, including TV apps, using native app development. Here is why we choose this solution,

  • Native apps provide superior performance and user experience compared to web-based or cross-platform solutions.
  • Multiplatform development like Android, iOS, and tvOS expands the reach of the target audience.
  • To collect information from a wide range of sources, Native app development is suitable for API integration.
  • A User-friendly interface promotes app adoption and ease of use.

Benefit of This Solution

The solution helped us build a robust and comprehensive app suited for both Android and iOS platforms. It makes content available on smartphones and tablets, which means that more people can access it. This is great for user engagement and means new fans can discover the sport who might not have access to connected TVs. Also, the mobile format is very convenient as it allows users to consume content on the go. This means that tips, race highlights, and news updates can easily fit into busy schedules.
