Сonstruction photo management

StructionSite gathers directional and spherical photos, videos, and drone shots on a single platform. It easily turns an assortment of photos into an organized project. Contractors can supervise the progress without leaving their offices, and owners get the most transparent work process they can possibly get.

Instead of writing excessively long weekly reports, construction workers need only a few seconds to make a

photo and attach a short note to it. We integrated Procore, Egnyte, Autodesk BIM 360, OneDrive, and other essential software widely used in the construction sector. We also constantly expand the list of supported 360 cameras so you wouldn’t have to buy new gear to use our app.

HIPAA compliant medical service for video consultations

The US healthcare system is known for its long wait times and insurance issues. We created a better alternative to traditional consultations. With Kego, patients can get medical advice from any place and at any time. The mobile and web apps allow them to book appointments, chat with their doctor, and store their medical info in digital form. We made sure that the apps are HIPAA compliant, so the patients don’t have to worry

about their privacy.   

Platforms 

iOS, Android, Web

Scooter-sharing app

Scooter is not exactly the type of vehicle you would want to use every day. However, few would deny that sometimes riding a scooter to work or to a friend’s place is much more fun than just taking a subway or driving a car. And it’s also good for your body!

Our client wanted to make scooter rides easily accessible for everyone in his city. We have built an iOS app with built-in payments and map integration. Now,

anyone with a phone can open our app, see the location of nearby scooters, and rent them with a few taps on the screen.  

3D face scanning and eyewear printing

Tech Print Industries had a Windows application that allowed opticians to get 3D printed glasses for their clients. But the app wasn’t very convenient and required a PC, so the company decided to order a mobile analog. We have built an Android app that lets the user scan a face, make a 3D model of it, and thoroughly customize eyewear on it. We worked hard on performance to make the app run smoothly on a wide range of devices.

  

Social app for hosting and finding events

A social platform supported by a web application and two mobile apps for iOS and Android. The mobile app allows users to find events on the in-app map, follow them, get notifications, and share photos from events. We implemented various filters: by city, date, and type of event. They will help the user find what he needs much faster.

With the web app, the user can host and edit events, and notify other users about

events hosted by him. He can also view photos and feedback about past events to improve them in the future.   

On-demand service for tattoo artists and their clients

Good tattoo artists are hard to find, and they are usually booked out months in advance. We have built a cross-platform app with React Native that saves time for both artists and clients.  

The app filters services by style, design, and location. It also guides the customer through a step-by-step consultation with the chosen artist. And finally, the user can project any tattoo design on a full-sized 3D model of a

human body and see how it will look from all angles.  

Social app with geolocation

When you are always on the road and in a rush, you need a fast way to find some nice place to eat. Of course, there are restaurant guides, but they are usually made by gourmets - people that have good taste but have little in common with you.

We have built an iOS app that will help you find a place to eat that you will definitely like. The app remembers places you visited and marks them on the map. We implemented

profiles, newsfeed, and chats, so people could share and discuss unusual places they had discovered. This way you get in touch with like-minded people, and can always find the best places to eat thanks to recommendations from people in your network.

Online fitness service

Two friends wanted to create a completely remote fitness service. We have built two mobile apps and one web app to make this possible. Ruggengraat clients get instant personal programs depending on their performance. The app shows them what to eat and how to work out. The trainers have their own web app to track their client progress and to adjust the program accordingly.  

Concierge app in React Native

Usually, variety is good, but sometimes it's tiresome. You can find the exact thing you need, but you’ll have to spend a fair share of your time.

We created a mobile app to solve this problem. If you are always in a hurry, you can entrust the choice to a specialist. Just enter the app chat and ask your question. Do you want to book a restaurant table? The specialists will book it for you. Do you want to find a

Christmas gift for your precious daughter? The specialists will find and purchase it for you. You can also do everything yourself if you want to. Still, a bit of advice never hurt anyone.  

Mobile app for Bluetooth parking sensor

High-quality parking sensors are expensive and difficult to install. Our client designed a device that could detect nearby objects and send the information to a mobile device via Bluetooth.

We have built two apps for iOS and Android that receive data from the sensor and convert it into visual, sound, and vibration alerts. The driver can customize notifications and also track the battery charge of the sensor. &nbsp

;  

On-demand snow-shoveling service.

The app connects the ones who want their car dug out of the snow and the ones who would like to earn some extra money in their free time. We integrated geolocation into Yeti, so the app automatically identifies the user’s location and shows it to all snow shovelers registered in the service. The users get live updates on the progress and can rate the result. These features protect the service from shady members. &nbsp

;

Yeti started in Boston last winter and already made highlights in several Boston media outlets, including Bostinno and the Boston magazine.

Social network and marketplace for fans of modest fashion

As Islamic fashion gets more popular, there is more need in online stores that sell modest clothes. We have built a mobile app that serves as a marketplace for such stores.

To increase user engagement, we also added several social features. The users can pick up any clothes to combine them into sets and share them with the others. Made sets also go into newsfeed to help users find friends and form groups of

interests.

One app for all fingerprint scanners

Widespread adoption of fingerprint authorization opened a huge market niche. Different devices come out every month, and all of them need different software.


We used React Native to build an app that can run with all biometric scanners. The app simply connects the smartphone and the scanner via USB cable. The scanner reads the fingerprint and sends it to the dedicated server. In a few seconds, the user gets

the information about the owner of the fingerprint.           
 

Keep your allergies in check

Allergies can sometimes seriously complicate one’s life. We created a mobile app that caringly guides the user through his medical therapy and reminds him about appointments with the doctor.

The app has patient and doctor profiles, so both can keep in touch with each other via text messages. We also made so the user can manage his own list of allergens. There, he can track reactions of his body to different food and

medicaments to be always aware of the danger in the future.

Augmented reality that can save lives

When Apple presented the first ARkit many enthusiastic minds jumped into action. One of them was our client. He decided to create a mobile app that will help people navigate through natural disasters, with augmented reality.


First of all, we chose the most reliable meteorological service in the USA and integrated it with our app. Then we wrote a custom algorithm that sets up safe routes during

natural disasters. And the work on the AR feature started. We made so the user could see all the precipitations with their phone camera, no matter how far they are. You often can’t see the storm until it’s too late, but with Atmoscan you are always aware.

Battery health management

For most smartphone users, it’s hard to identify what exactly is draining their battery. Whatever iOS you are using it always runs dozens of processes in the background, and you really need only a few of them.   

We created a mobile app that shuts down unnecessary apps to free up RAM on your phone. It also gives different tips to save your battery charge. The app can also clean junk to provide the user with

extra space on internal storage.         

Social app for group workouts

Anyone that has ever tried to start working out knows how hard it is to keep up your streak. You miss one time, then another, and soon you are too discouraged to go on. How cool would it be if you always had a friend to lift your spirits up!

We have built a mobile app that lets people join workout groups and support each other to achieve better results. Here, you can find workout partners with suitable schedule,

goals, and interests. You can chat, share photos, and follow each other progress. The app also has shopping lists to help you with nutrition because it’s an essential part of every training program.

Medical photography made simple and fast.

RXPhoto brings medical photography to a brand new level. The app turns any device with iOS into a compact medical camera. You also don't have to waste time on cropping and uploading photos to other devices.

The app lets you categorize the photos, so it’s much easier to manage them. You can also get access to them from any device since the app is connected to HIPAA cloud storage. Every photo is encrypted before moving

to the cloud, so your patient’s privacy is safe.

   

Best flight and hotel deals on your phone

Nusatrip is one of the leading online travel agencies in South East Asia. Their website served them well for a long time, but they knew that it was time to go mobile. They asked us to make an iOS app.

 

Nusatrip for iOS needs no more than 5 seconds to find a suitable hotel or flight deal based on multiple criteria: date, time, cost, number of people, age etc. We have built a database that stores all the

info about hotels, so the users find out everything they need without minimizing the app. And of course, we made a filter and sorting tool to help users navigate through dozens of deals.

Volumetric scanning for wound treatment

Medical equipment required for wound scanning tends to be heavy and bulky. Synergy Wound Tech decided to solve this problem and turned to us for a digital solution. We have built an iOS app that connects an iPad with the Structure Sensor from Occipital to form a precise volumetric wound scanner. And that was just the beginning.

 

We wanted to make a comprehensive tool for on-site treatment. That’s how

the app got a custom algorithm that suggests treatment based on the scan. Our client also asked as to add some features that will help with supply chain management and documentation. We felt that such tasks wouldn’t too comfortable on a mobile device, so a web application was born.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Riseapps?

We hired Riseapps to help develop an iOS app for our main product offering. 

What were your goals for this project? 

Our goal was to have consistent ongoing help for our iOS development so that our team could focus on multiple tasks at the same time.

How did you select this vendor?

We interviewed Riseapps along with several iOS engineers using almost the same process that we would use to hire a full-time resource. Out of all the candidates, Riseapps stood out the most. 

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail. 

They worked on our main product’s iOS app, giving us additional engineering firepower so that we could make more consistent progress faster.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

It’s been great. Riseapps’ support has given us more room to breathe on the project, which has allowed us to get out some “nice to have” features to our clients. I’m sure our clients have already felt the value.

They adapted to our internal process, including both the informal and formal procedures once we made the engagement more official. We used the usual project management tools such as Slack, Jira, and GitHub. 

What did you find most impressive about this company? 

So far, I’ve been pleasantly surprised. I appreciate that they’ve been extremely flexible throughout the engagement. Also, everyone I’ve interacted with has been quite capable, though I’ve only dealt with a few people. I can’t say that I’m particularly impressed so much as generally happy with their work.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I’m not sure if there are any areas for improvement at the moment. They’ve been flexible with our requirements, and the time works out because I’m flexible with my working hours. Some additional concurrency would be best, but it hasn’t been a major issue.

I am the owner and principal developer at a mobile software company that provides airline industry personnel with travel support.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Riseapps?

We had hastily developed our Android app years ago, and, as it grew in functionality, it became impossible to manage and implement new features. So, we reached out to Riseapps to help us rebuild the app. 

What were your goals for this project? 

Our goal was to overhaul the entire app, starting over from scratch to make it much easier to work with and improve.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We used an online freelance marketplace and communicated with several developers. After considering a select few, we decided to continue with Riseapps. 

Describe the project in detail. 

In the beginning, we worked closely with them to make sure that the app would meet our specifications. Once we were confident that we were both on the same page, Riseapps took over with minimal input required from us. They’ve continued to support us over the years to further develop our app.

What was the team composition?

They’ve assigned two developers and a QA specialist for product testing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It is now much easier for us to implement new features and update/upgrade existing features within the app. 

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs? 

We communicate effectively via a few different avenues, including Skype for quick questions and answers as well as other methods that made it easy to submit bugs and feedback.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They’ve responded quickly and had the drive to allocate resources and get the projects going from day one. In addition, there were a few issues in the beginning that they were able to identify and rectify quickly with minimal input from us.

No, none that I can see.

Please describe your company and your position there. 

I’m a co-owner of Fitness Groupie and oversee all functions of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Riseapps?

We had worked with a prior development company to create an iOS fitness app called BootCamp Groupie. However, we were experiencing a lot of technical issues, so we hired Riseapps to resolve the bugs and create new features.

What were your goals for this project? 

We had a long list of fixes for Riseapps to tackle, from fixing bugs and creating new features to making the app more user-friendly. Our goal was to complete the tasks within a short timeframe while remaining on budget.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor? 

We placed an ad in Upwork and received hundreds of responses. After reviewing all of the applicants, we shortlisted a few vendors and interviewed them. The decision was easy; Riseapps was very easy to communicate with, and they were the right price for our small company. On top of that, they informed us of how they would ultimately fix our issues while sticking to the schedule.

Describe the project in detail. 

Within the first week, we sent a list of fixes that we needed done immediately to see how their team worked. They proved themselves capable of taking on our project. Since then, they’ve done a multitude of tasks, including designing wireframes, creating content, and providing ongoing support.

What was the team composition? 

They’ve assigned a project manager to serve as our main point of contact. They’re knowledgeable, helpful, and quick to respond to our questions/concerns.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It’s been an all-around success. I’ve received great feedback from users on the features that Riseapps designed and implemented. They’ve made the app much more user-friendly and engaging. 

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs? 

The project manager is easy to work with and provides us with timely updates. We communicate through Upwork on almost a daily basis. 

What did you find most impressive about this company? 

I’m very impressed with Riseapps’ ability to create a quality product in such a timely manner. Their work is by far more superior than anything I’ve seen from previous vendors, and they’re much more affordable than onshore companies. 

Are there any areas for improvement? 

At this point, they have no areas for improvement. They’re a joy to work with.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the CEO of The Jared Company, a mobile app development firm.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Riseapps?

We were not satisfied with the quality of the original version of our iOS application for food enthusiasts, Favocity, which was built by another software developer. We hired Riseapps to overhaul the development.

What were your goals for this project?

Our app is meant to help users find places to eat and share them with friends. However, the app looked and felt outdated, and the capabilities were very limited. We wanted the app to be more engaging for our users.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We held discussions with several companies, but Riseapps was the most communicative among them. We appreciated Vlad’s (CEO, Riseapps) easygoing yet straightforward demeanor. He almost immediately offered several solutions.

Describe the project in detail.

Riseapps gave new life to the application, which enables users to save and share restaurants they have visited and also receive recommendations from their network. The original version was riddled with bugs, so Riseapps rewrote the app using Swift. They delivered a newer and more modern design. They also added several new features, including an integrated map which took the place of a list function. We discussed every phase of development in scheduled meetings. Their project manager is quite rigorous when it comes to specifications, so we rarely had to redo something.

What was the team composition?

We worked with an iOS developer, a designer, a project manager, and a QA engineer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The app finally meets our original requirements. We are very satisfied with the final build and are ready to release it.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We communicated primarily through texts. They were responsive and answered all questions within an hour. We received a working build at the end of every week, and Riseapps was always quick to implement our feedback.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We began wanting to fix an app, but we instead received a completely new and better version of it. They understand user needs and how to address them within the product. Their project manager was a pleasure to work with. He didn’t blindly agree to everything we wanted. Instead, he tried to understand our vision, assess our needs, and offer his own suggestions.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, it was a great experience. We are already planning to work with Riseapps on another project.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

After the failed attempts of two prior vendors, the app is now in its final testing. Riseapps successfully rescued the project with attentive management and a holistic, proactive approach to development. The team’s talent, expertise, and competence set them apart from competitors.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the founder of InkLnk, a platform that connects tattoo clients to tattoo artists.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Riseapps?

We hired Riseapps to complete a mobile app. The work primarily consisted of building a custom algorithm, then developing it end-to-end for iOS and Android. 

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to see if our previous research would work within a mobile technology.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

This was a complex mobile app and we spent a long time searching for a team that could handle building our core feature. Many of the over one hundred candidates we interviewed claimed they could complete the project without issue, but we hired and fired two teams before finding Riseapps. After several unsuccessful iterations of the project—equating to lost time and money—we were skeptical, but Riseapps presented a powerful pitch. We contracted with them and are excited to see the results.  

Describe the project in detail.

We provided Riseapps with a full set of app specs and a completed UX. They navigated our designed screens and filtered out what was necessary for an initial launch that was tailored to our budget. They mixed and matched the screens, occasionally requesting additional screens, to create the product that met our vision. 

What was the team composition?

Riseapps provided us with a project manager as well as access to the lead developer. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

InkLnk is still in testing at the time of this post, but we will submit an update in a few weeks.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The project manager has handled the process seamlessly. She not only strives to meet all of our needs but can also identify future potential pitfalls. Everyone involved responded quickly to emails and remained available via Skype whenever necessary.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Riseapps was able to do what two other teams could not. Capable and agile, they take a global approach to projects, and we highly recommend them. 

Are there any areas for improvement?

Riseapps should hire and train more exceptionally skilled developers, if only to shorten the development time. You won't find a better team to manage your project.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Internal stakeholders praised Riseapps’ clean designs and React Native expertise. The team was responsive and worked diligently throughout, finding unforeseen edge cases and addressing them accordingly.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Weber-Stephen Nordic is a digital event aggregator platform that seeks to offer the ultimate experience for users and organizers alike. With our platform, organizers can profile their events for users to find. In my role, I serve as the head of business and a sales analyst.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Riseapps?

Our previous developers had built a preliminary mobile app version of our platform in React Native, but we needed resources who could take over and finish the project. Riseapps executed our preliminary requests before expanding their role into further development.

What were your goals for this project?

We initially tasked Riseapp with making some development changes for our mobile app, however, we continued to use them for further development after seeing their strong performance.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Since our mobile app was written in React Native, we needed a high-quality provider with relevant expertise. We posted a job listing on Upwork and interviewed five potential vendors before choosing Riseapps.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

In the beginning, Riseapps developed the basic functionalities for our mobile app, including the interactive program and map features. Because we had strict criteria for design and responsive interaction, Riseapps made sure to meet our guidelines. They also built a new backend as well as a web app for our service.

What was the team composition?

Riseapps has a large team with a diverse range of expertise. They assigned a team of five, including a Python expert on the backend, a React Native developer on frontend, a React developer for the web app, a UX designer, and a project manager.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

The mobile app is now available on the App Store and Google Play, and the web app is also live.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

They had an effective workflow and were responsive, replying to our Slack messages within the hour.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Riseapps is a serious, professionally-driven company, and I was impressed with their management structure. Not only were they able to draft detailed technical plans, but they also discovered edge cases that we hadn’t considered ourselves. The team boasted clean, responsive designs, which ensured a comfortable user experience.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Since the project became more complicated than we initially anticipated, we ended up going a bit over budget. However, this is normal for development projects, especially since we paid them hourly instead of using a fixed price. Nevertheless, our experience was near perfect, and I would highly recommend Riseapps to anyone. I definitely plan to use them again in the future.

Feedback summary: 

The new changes to the app aided to a significant increase in revenue. The Riseapps team provided strong expertise and adaptability throughout the project. Their willingness to deliver a solid final product made them a valuable partner.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the founder and CEO of Yeti, an on-demand snow removal service app. We connect users with snow shovelers.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Riseapps?

We needed Riseapps to add features to our app, as we didn’t have the in-house resources or technical skill sets. We needed their team to add the new element that doubles our services and implement a new workflow to the app.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted the new feature to double the number of services we could supply. Additionally, we wanted the app to offer a better user experience and be easier to manage from an admin perspective.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

For a previous project, I used Upwork to find Riseapps. We interviewed several candidates and reviewing their estimates. Though they weren’t the most inexpensive option, they were highly professional and we felt confident in their abilities. Riseapps quickly demonstrated that they had a solid understanding of the work we needed done, and gave us strict estimates for efforts and cost.

Describe the project in detail.

We had several initial meetings to review our design specifications, and the Riseapps team came prepared for the discussions. Once the requirements were clear, we established a timeframe and began working on the project. After development was complete, we had multiple rounds of tests and fixes. We had new requirements after testing the product, and their team made all the necessary improvements.

What was the team composition?

Riseapps assigned a dedicated project manager, but as development began, I primarily interacted with the lead developer. They also provided a QA team, but I didn’t work directly with them.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Though we’re still fine-tuning the design, the new feature delivered by Riseapps has increased our revenue by around 50%. We’re now able to offer an entirely new service in a user-friendly way, and we anticipate our sales to dramatically increase in the winter season.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow was well organized and very transparent. Riseapps used Trello to manage the workload, so we were able to see their progress at all times. Whenever the requirements were complex, their priority was always to understand exactly what we envisioned.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They were highly flexible and accommodating to our needs. Before their help, our app was poorly organized and too complicated. They were quickly able to give us a great solution that was compatible with our changing requirements.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We would have liked if the QA process were more transparent so we could gain a better understanding of their approach. However, the process is effective because everything they deliver is generally free from bugs.
