What the client required
The client already had a version of their website for mobile devices, and wanted to introduce native applications for iPhone and iPad devices.
The new applications should provide most of the functionality offered by the main website and its mobile version:
- Searching companies in the database by name, company code or director's name
- Viewing the detailed information about a company
There was also a specific feature which the client wanted to implement specifically for iPhone and iPad devices - maintaining the list of favorites.
The applications required only French language support, as for their web versions.
What we implemented
We have implemented iPhone and iPad applications supporting all current iOS versions and devices including iPod Touch.
As the client specified, the iPhone version supports only portrait orientation, but the iPad application supports both portrait and landscape.
The applications were developed using the client's existing web services for fetching data and performing searching operations.
