the challenge

While Rihanna, Beyoncé, and Barack Obama were all snapped by The Bosco and created interactive gifs, videos, and experiences ready to shine across social media channels, the company saw the huge opportunities ahead! So, they contacted us to help them optimize and scale the iPad application, add new features, and maintain the service!

the solution

When we started our partnership with The Bosco, they already had an iOS app; We created new features and a smooth User Experience and design to the existing app, and ensure a successful iOS app Swift migration from Objective-C with no repercussions on the existing database. 

As the app facilitates the creation of thousands of photos, gifs, and videos, we also ran a code refactoring and caching, video and image processing algorithm optimization, added a queue system and ensured other overall app performance improvements.

Once the current iOS app was ready to scale, we continued the collaboration and developed The Bosco Lookbook app start-to-end. The new web app interactively shows brand collaboration case studies and has a set of new features and improvements related to event-based projects.
