How did you select xorum.io?
After posting the job description, we received interest from various app developers which we eventually narrowed down to five. Alla, the CEO of Xorum.io, was part of this final group of five.
We finally decided to go with Alla and her team because of the following reasons: - Their past projects (which are all available on Apple and Google stores and display their company name) have excellent design. - They specialize in EdTech industry so we knew they'd be able to create an efficient learning experience and user interface.
They are able to speak French and English which was a huge plus for us since this French language app is for English speakers. - They were very professional when they first presented their development process and the different steps needed in order to complete our project.
Describe the project in detail.
Before hiring Xorum.io, we thoroughly explained to them our vision and content plans for the app.
We wanted everything organized into the few following sections: Dialogue, Grammar, Vocabulary (which includes various types of exercises such as text and audio matching, correct word and letter placement, etc.), Practice (which includes instant access to all of our French translations and audio content), and Review (which tests users on what they've learned).
Alla, who was our main developer, was able to clearly explain the process and timeline, and she promptly answered all of our technical questions. When she sent the specifications, especially her impressive mockups and designs, we knew we'd be in good hands.
After many back and forth messages explaining exactly how we wanted everything (colors, text layout, etc.), we were very satisfied with the end result. We even decided to add more features and improvements toward the end of our project, and Alla and her team successfully implemented all of them (they developed our app using Kotlin).
They also helped us greatly with the whole process of signing up to both Apple developer and Google Play console programs (which were quite new to us) and did so by sending us several explanatory screenshots and videos.
What was the team composition?
The Xorum team has, I believe, at least 3 developers including Alla (who was my main communication throughout the whole project), Yevhenii, Den, and one other designer. They all worked on our app project.
