What were the results of the project?
I came to them with the idea in February and engaged with Sinew in March. Our relationship is ongoing. The version for iOS was released, and we are wrapping up the Android version in the next week or two. I’m probably have some updates coming down the pipeline. They’ve already given me a cost printout for what that’ll look like.
Are you satisfied with their work?
Yes, very satisfied. It’s interesting because a lot of people that have been downloading the app have been telling me there aren’t any bugs or issues. Which may seem like a small thing but when you’re using mobile applications, you can think of the number of times where it’s crashed, or something’s not working, or it kicks you out of the app. I’m very grateful, from a functionality standpoint, to have everything be very sound.
Also, from a design standpoint, it’s exactly what I wanted. I couldn’t be any happier with the way things turned out. They really took what I had in my head and brought it to life, which was all I could really ask for, and they did it quickly. I came up with the idea in February, and it’s been in the App Store for a month now.
Is there anything unique about Sinew Solutions that really makes them stand out, compared to other companies?
I think their level of responsiveness and engagement, including me in everything, but also bringing value by adding different creative opinions and thoughts is special. Just bringing another level of expertise to the table, because I have no expertise in this space whatsoever was vital.
I came up with a very rough idea without any technical basis, and they took that and applied their technical overlay, and it all came together very nicely. They brought things to my attention that I would have never of thought of. If I reached out to them, they would get back to me usually within 20 minutes, if that. If anything, it was them having to pull teeth to get a response from me, versus the other way around.
Looking back on the work so far, is there any area that you think they could improve upon or something that you might do differently?
For me, personally, no, I really don’t have anything to suggest.
