Product

eNomad is an Android app addressed to digital nomads, expats and travelers, who typically move or relocate to new places, helping them find the places they need close by – shops, restaurants, gyms, co-working, etc.

After downloading the app, the user can select multiple categories of services needed through a wheel picker, set a distance radius and then check at glance the respective listings on the map, around his current location.

In the map view mode, the user can select each listing to check the respective reviews left by other users, save the listing or get the directions.
Saved places can be accessed later from the app’s header.

The user can also change the current location, by inputting a new address in the search box, in order to check the available listings around it.

Challenge

The app concept and full UX design was designed by our client Camilla Bonanni, a mobile publisher who chose Redwerk for the development of her proprietary project.

Our client came to us already with a clear idea of how the interface should look like and a project scope. Navigation flow, colors, design details, logo and other graphic elements of the app were done by the client and needed to be implemented according to the brief.

Redwerk took on the development of the app upon the directions of client’s given interface and navigation design. The challenge of the project was to reflect precisely what the client had already in mind in terms of UX and implement the combined geolocation functionalities that were behind it.

As client requested new features and changes to implement on top of the very initial brief, Redwerk made several upgrades over the development course of the app, in order to get to the very final version for launch.

Solution

The Google Places and Foursquare APIs formed the core of our app’s functionality for obtaining information about nearby places.

Retrofit and greenDAO were used to retrieve data and store it on the user’s device while consuming as few system resources as possible.

We used the Android Support Library to ensure that modern design features used in the app will still be compatible with older Android versions (4.03+).

Finally, a Jenkins-powered CI server was running alongside our team from the very start of the project, cooking up fresh builds within minutes of each code commit.

I am very satisfied with the degree of precision and accuracy by which Redwerk team executed the UX brief in any detail and brought to live the concept of app I had in mind. The app took shape exactly as I wanted and the team was very proactive in implementing all the features requested, providing solutions and helping anticipating possible problems. With this work, Redwerk team has also proven to have a strong command of complex geolocation functionalities, which was essential for the usability of this product. We had a great teamwork.

It was interesting to work with the Foursquare and Google Places APIs and integrate both services into one app. We also used Retrofit and greenDAO, which helped us to keep the app as small as possible as these technologies handle a lot of functionality without consuming much in the way of resources.
