LIFESTYLE APP

THE CUSTOMER

Cambridge based

MvBii

Zing+ specialise in intelligent lifestyle accessories. Their first product to market is an affordable smart watch combining fun with tracking user fitness and activity levels.

THE BRIEF

MvBii Zing required a companion app that users would get free with a purchase of their smart watch. The app needed to be professional and high quality in order to compete with higher-priced products in the market. A cloud-based server was also required to support various features of the app and hold user data.

THE REQUIREMENTS

  • Bluetooth low-energy support – to communicate with the hardware
  • Sleek design – high quality lifestyle app with an excellent user interface
  • Cloud services – hold user data in the cloud
  • Activity tracking – store user’s daily and weekly activity
  • Camera – video/still recording
  • Messaging – messaging functionality between users
  • Music control – playlist control functionality
  • Support during iOS approvals process

“The App has a distinct professional look and feel and performs superbly.”

Justin Pisani,

Co-Founder

THE SOLUTION

We worked with the customer on previous web projects and as a result MvBii were confident that our work would ensure the app looked good without comprising the functionality. They were not disappointed with the app being an “excellent combination of visual creativity and function” (Justin Pisani, Co-Founder).

Specialist understanding of iOS and Android was required to deliver a robust solution as the smart watch uses Bluetooth Low-Energy to communicate with the phone. Hardware and software needed to be seamlessly integrated to ensure a positive user experience. We worked closely with MvBii to ensure this was achieved.

“Working with MvBii was a pleasure from the beginning. We are experienced and adept at working closely with our customers’ engineering teams; this was a perfect example of how that approach delivers a great product efficiently.” – Gavin Dolling, Business Development Manager, Green Custard
