What was the scope of their involvement?
We came up with five different app ideas, and Cleevio built them for iOS and Android, working on the UI, graphic design, and dev. Youradio is an app for streaming music, but it’s curated by playlist and mood instead of album and artist. Users select a certain mood, and then our recommendation engine suggests what they’d like to listen to. Cleevio built a free and paid version of the app.
Youradio talk is the same idea but for the spoken word, such as podcasts and the news. The app aggregates various spoken word services and allows users to either stream them or select specific podcasts they want to listen to. Evropa 2 and Frekvence 1 are for streaming radio, but they also incorporate a feed from other websites (like news sites) that users can directly access in the app. Lastly, Pigy is a kids’ radio station that offers both fairy tales and kids’ music.
All of the app are live, and Cleevio continues to update them and add new features, as needed. Each app took about 1–6 months to develop, depending on its complexity.
What is the team composition?
The project manager is our main point of contact, and we also work with one developer for iOS and one for Android.
How did you come to work with Cleevio?
They found us. We liked their ideas, designs, and presentation, so we had them do a pilot app. It went well, so we hired them for the other projects.
How much have you invested with them?
Each app cost about $50,000 to develop.
What is the status of this engagement?
We first partnered in July 2013, and the work is ongoing.
