The client is a young entrepreneur with a couple of successful web businesses running online. He approached us to develop a platform for celebrities to connect with their fans through messages, audio, or video conferencing, and earn money for every minute of interaction.
The most critical challenge was to use a third party API which could work across different platforms like iOS, Android, and web interfaces. We found that most third party APIs had their own limitations, and rigorous research had to be performed to hit upon an API which could successfully address the needs.
We developed Android and iOS native app using third party API. STRIPE payment gateway was implemented for secure funds transfer. A solution was provided to track remaining balance, allowing the fans to get a better idea of time for which they can get into an audio or video call with their chosen celebrities. In addition, robust availability feature was provided to celebrities so that they could make the best use of their time.
