Social network App Image

Social network App

OVERVIEW

MUSH is a cross-platform social media mobile app that allows mom-users to find friends with kids of a certain age. The app operates as a sort of mix between Tinder and Facebook in that it has a convenient and intuitive interface.

CHALLENGE

As MUSH founders are both experienced moms, they realized that all moms should have access to a free and easy way to make

friends. They turned to LITSLINK with an idea of a mom-focused app.

SOLUTION

In the beginning, we created a cost-effective solution: The app that operates as a social platform. As soon as our team launched the MVP, the business model was successfully validated. After the launch app went viral and we scaled it fast, migrated to React Native technology that suits the app’s needs perfectly.

It took us 2 years of intense work to guide MUSH from idea to the Top-1 rated App on the UK Apple App Store.

Marketplace for travelers Image

Marketplace for travelers

OVERVIEW

MySquire solution offers instant online guided tours on demand. It consists of 2 main parts: a web platform for service providers and a cross platform mobile app for travelers.

CHALLENGE

The Startup founders reached out to LITSLINK to create an app that will instantly connect them with the required experts online during trips

abroad.

SOLUTION

LITSLINK team developed 2 products that work as one:

MySquire web platform: A freelance website for travel service providers. It allows Tour Guides, Translators, and many others to offer their services to the travelers and gain money remotely.

MySquire mobile app shows travelers all available service providers on a scalable online map. Users are free to choose anyone to start working with via chat, audio or video call.

LITSLINK implemented a MPV for MySquire in a very short time. 

Swiping feature App Image

Swiping feature App

OVERVIEW

Coursematch is a mobile application with a swiping feature like Tinder has. It aimed at helping high-school students to get the information about the nearest universities.

CHALLENGE

The challenge was about creating an informative and highly functional application for both iOS and Android platforms that would cater to the thousands of app’s subscribers in the

Educational field in an interactive and modern manner.

SOLUTION

LITSLINK’s team presented a high performance and customizable application with a number of features, such as

- detailed info about the apprenticeship opportunities,

- personal/group chat options,

- finding the best accommodation option nearby, and many more.

The app was launched in 2016 for Android devices. In September 2017, it was rebuilt from scratch using React Native & Redux cross-platform technologies.

AI photo & video App Image

AI photo & video App

OVERVIEW

Toolook works as a unique combination of marketplace and AI photo&video editing service app available both for Android and iOS platforms.

CHALLENGE

Our Customer had an idea for a mobile application that supports people’s interest in photography by providing custom drawn images and video editing with the help of AI technology.

 

SOLUTION

LITSLINK built a powerful AI editing app with a scrolling gallery, correct image cropping functionalities and a variety of effects. Toolook became the first app in the world that implemented real time AI video streaming filters.

Additionally, we made a Web-based platform for professional photo editors, so users were able to order any effect from the app’s gallery just in 2 clicks, and wait while a professional handcrafts their photo.

Toolook got several mln downloads on both app stores shortly after its launch.

E-learning platform App Image

E-learning platform App

OVERVIEW

Educative is a comprehensive online platform that combines an e-commerce functionality, a full-fledged marketplace and a complex e-learning portal all in one place.

CHALLENGE

Our Customer is a provider of interactive courses for software engineers. They were looking for a team to develop a web platform that would facilitate the e-learning process by providing

seamless client data and activity management. The solution had to include a module for users to register and subscribe to various e-learning services.

SOLUTION

The platform had to be massive to contain all the features we were thinking about, but yet smooth.

The developed solution represents a cloud-based web platform, where people can create their own courses for a global audience of programmers, share knowledge with like-minded people. 

Additionally, the portal is integrated with optimal payment methods.

I’m the international operations manager at EcoBioTech Ukraine. We produce and supply sunflower oil and related products.

LITSLINK seemed to be the most reliable, successful, and client-oriented company.

Describe the project in detail.

We had several initial meetings with LITSLINK where we met their teammates and learned about possible technologies for our application. We decided to move forward with a React development, and their team began rewriting the app, using the old version as an example. There were no crises or breaks during development, and they delivered every stage on time. Before finishing, we asked LitsLink to bring in a QA resource

What was the team composition?

LITSLINK's team consisted of a mobile developer, a web developer, a project manager, a QA resource, and a DevOps resource.

Feedback summary: 

The app is now live and functions as expected thanks to LITSLINK’s contributions. They work seamlessly with the internal team and continue to develop new features as needed. Open communication and responsiveness are hallmarks of their work.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CTO of a cryptocurrency company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with LITSLINK?

We were looking for a development house that could supplement our internal team as we built out the new version of our cryptocurrency app. LITSLINK came on board to help us with the design and development.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

LITSLINK helped us build a complex web app for users to trade various cryptocurrencies. Rather than starting from scratch, we looked at our previous iteration to identify core functionalities and plan additional features. We then discussed the different screens we’d need, and their team created and implemented all of our UI designs.

They also worked closely with us to develop a gateway that consolidated several blockchain demands from about 100 cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. It’s essentially an interface that connects our platform with the different cryptocurrencies, which allows users to deposit and withdraw coins.

The technical stack includes MySQL 4 and MongoDB for the database and Redis for the caching. Although we’ve recently launched the app, they continue to work with us on new features.

What is the team composition?

We’re currently contracting two developers and two designers, but there were also two additional developers in the past.

How did you come to work with LITSLINK?

I found LITSLINK on Upwork and reached out to them. After working with one of their freelancers, I ended up asking for more resources to augment our project. They provided a list of candidates, and I assessed their technical skills with small tasks. So far, most of them have done well.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent about €100,000 (approximately $114,700 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

Their work started in January 2018, and we launched the app in November 2018. Currently, we’re collaborating on new features.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

They supplemented our development team and helped us launch a functional app.

How did LITSLINK perform from a project management standpoint?

I handle most of the project management over Slack, and they respond to our needs. There have been some delays throughout the project, but that’s because we'd underestimated the amount of time needed to complete the project. Regardless, everything has been great so far. Whenever we encounter any issues, they’re proactive about discussing the problem and finding a solution.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The developers are good, and we’re happy with how they manage their team. I recently visited them in November, and they were all in good spirits.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I can’t think of anything.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their support allowed us to scale up and down easily. They were able to supply new front- and backend developers for us at short notice.

Are there any areas for improvement?

They were more focused on coding rather than providing solutions. We were required to provide precise instructions in order for the development to go well. A solutions-driven approach would be an improvement.

Feedback summary: 

LITSLINK produced web and mobile app deliverables that have been uniformly praised by both the nonprofit and volunteer user bases they’re intended for. They programmed clean, error-free code and facilitated a synergistic and seamless workflow to rapidly deliver within a narrow turnaround window.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the co-founder of a company that is creating a platform to bring volunteers and nonprofit organizations together. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with LITSLINK?

We hired LITSLINK to build upon our existing platform. The code we had in place was bad quality and didn’t work correctly.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our business contracted LITSLINK exclusively for development services. They came on board to help us complete our app. We flew to Kiev to meet them in person and spent two days discussing how to rewrite the entire frontend within our strict two-week deadline. 

Users can create accounts, browse volunteer opportunities, and sign up for activities at the touch of a button. Clicking on a project shows details about the mission including its purpose and when and where it will take place. Each completed volunteer project is added to the user’s profile, similar to a CV. The search function includes filters for location. We also implemented a blog.

LITSLINK used React Native to develop our app cross-platform for both iOS and Android. We sent them finalized mockups and concrete designs to use as a basis for the technical components. They wrote all the code and collaborated with our CTO, who coordinated the process from our side.  

What is the team composition? 

LITSLINK assigned two React Native developers to build our platform. Toward the end of the project, they added a third full-stack resource to fix the API issues. The project manager assigned the tasks we requested to the rest of the team.  For the web app build, they assigned us two developers for the first month scaled down to one for the remainder.

How did you come to work with LITSLINK?

After becoming dissatisfied with our previous provider, we searched for a new agency. Our ideal partner would have several types of experts on staff to support each other. LITSLINK applied to our job through Upwork. After interviewing the team, we were happy to hire them. 

How much have you invested with them?

We spent at least $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

This project with LITSLINK lasted from July–November 2018.  We focused on development until the end of October. We’re still fixing bugs and plan to build more features in 2019 with a larger team. Previously, we developed a React Native web app for a nonprofit together in April 2018. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

LITSLINK’s support enabled us to publish the app by our challenging deadline. At this point, we’ve established a presence in one city and are continuing to expand. We’ve received outstanding user feedback. Nonprofits can find our website easily, which is typically a challenge in the field. People have found our concept easy to understand.

It’s hard to measure the exact code quality, but LITSLINK’s output is generally clean and well-structured. We’ve been very happy with their deliverables. The product had almost no bugs aside from minimal UI issues.

How did LITSLINK perform from a project management standpoint?

LITSLINK established an effective process, stuck to deadlines, and even worked overtime when needed. Communication was excellent. We collaborated well and never experienced any problems at all. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

There’s never been a time when LITSLINK told us something we asked for was impossible. Even if it didn’t turn out to be the solution we initially thought of, LITSLINK found something that fit what we wanted. The experts on their team can always find a way to solve even our most complex problems. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. I’m a design perfectionist, so I’d have preferred for their developers to spend more time making the product resemble the mockups more closely. Since this hasn’t been a significant issue, it’s not a real criticism.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the product manager at a digital development company. I ensure that clients fulfill their business requirements and achieve their app development goals.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire LITSLINK?

We needed a partner to develop native iOS and Android apps using React Native. 

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to keep it simple while meeting the core business objectives. The apps needed to offer a fast, seamless experience for parents to search, browse, and book events.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We reviewed local and online development teams. Our deciding factors were experience, communication, and cost.

Describe the project in detail.

From loose business requirements and wireframes, they developed our mobile apps in React Native.

What was the team composition?

We had two points of non-technical contact and one developer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

We were happy with the speed of their progress. Previous experience helped their developer understand the business requirements and implement features quickly and correctly. The app had no significant issues and received five-star ratings on both app stores.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The team was responsive, friendly, and communicative. Although they suggested a more comprehensive project management tool, they accommodated our request to use Trello.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They completed tasks quickly with few explanations from us, which made things flow easily. They had not only excellent technical knowledge, but also a good understanding of our goals for the business.

Are there any areas for improvement?

As experienced mobile development team, they should point out anything that might prevent the client from achieving their goals.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Stellar quality to-date and quick responsiveness have elevated LITSLINK to the level of ongoing development partner. Their regular progress reports and through documentation make them stand out in the industry, as does their accommodating, flexible engagement style.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CTO of a mobile gaming application. We’re adding tournaments to casual mobile games.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with LITSLINK?

We needed React Native development resources that could work quickly and efficiently within a flexible time frame. We don’t have a constant flow of tasks, so we needed them done right away when they do come up.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They developed most of the SDK that game developers can integrate into their game, which provides them tournament functionalities. LITSLINK developed most of the client side of the product, which includes the UI – which they developed based on our designs – and the user’s ability to join tournament games, see leaderboards, and create a profile. They've also done a few websites for us. 

What is the team composition?

We worked with a project manager, an account executive, and multiple developers with experience in React native, iOS, Android, and web.

How did you come to work with LITSLINK?

We found them on Upwork. We looked at many prospects and they seemed to be the most professional. We worked with them on some small tasks and then continued into a long, ongoing partnership.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent about $20,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together since December 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

I don't have any hard metrics but I would say that we're pleased with the work; it’s very good quality. It's usually done on time or with small delays, so everything is going well. They never go beyond price estimates – and sometimes they even come in under budget.

How did LITSLINK perform from a project management standpoint?

They work quickly, communicate well, and are very polite and pleasant. They’re also very responsive, which makes them nice to work with. They send us a weekly report in Excel regarding billing and tasks that were undertaken.

The development process is very smooth and we like our collaboration with them. We usually send them a list of tasks by e-mail and then they’ll send us an estimate and get started on development.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I really like their ability to adjust their timetable to ours, which is the main reason we chose them. We wanted flexible timing – to send an email with tasks and have it done as fast as possible – but other developers we talked to couldn’t handle the changing work demands. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I think they're doing pretty well.

Any advice for potential customers?

I would say go ahead with them and feel free to speak with me as a reference.
