Challenge

As the pandemic is forcing mobile consumers to look for new ways of staying fit while social distancing, fitness app installs have boomed. To find a competitive edge in the market is no easy task today. Our client, however, had an idea how to stand out from the crowd. The client wanted to build a mobile fitness app that would offer users an all-in-one fitness solution with smart training plans, healthy diets, and a lot of other valuable content based on scientific research. To convert their idea into life, they needed an experienced mobile development partner that would be able to integrate training and nutrition knowledge smoothly. They turned to ITRex.

Our task was to:
Conduct business analysis to scope the solution and make recommendations on its optimum functionality within the client’s budget expectations
Design and build the front and back end of the Android/iOS fitness app using DevOps to accelerate the process
Run manual testing to ensure smooth user experience

Solution

A content-rich fitness app for Android and iOS provides fitness enthusiasts with access to tried and tested workouts and nutrition tips. The app makes it easy for users to reach their fitness goals by offering individually tailored training plans and diets, exercise videos, webinars, recipes, and scientific articles. Engaged as a provider of end-to-end mobile development services, ITRex helped the client simplify the solution scope while preserving desired functionality in line with the client’s budget expectations. For the management of content assets, we used AWS for cloud storage
