Health and fitness app

This health application collects indicators from a fitness tracker and displays them in a user-friendly form. Inside the application, there are statistics for various indicators such as sugar level, weight, number of steps walked, body temperature, amount of water drunk, etc.

Project background

According to current statistics, people spend over 5 hours a day with their favorite mobile applications. Also, people have become very interested in exercising, nutrition, and staying healthy while maintaining their lifestyles and busy schedules. 

During the pandemic period, there was a huge problem with social interaction, since it was not recommended to gather in groups. The industry of fitness apps needed a new solution to cope with social distancing and support the competitive spirit.  

Our client is a leading US healthcare startup with a popular health and fitness app and connected devices. CHI Software Mobile unit was responsible for a new app feature: leaderboard by location. There is a list of leaders by indicators around the world, among close friends, and among participants in one organization, for example, among employees of Google.

Business needs

According to current statistics, people spend over 5 hours a day with their top fav mobile applications. Also, people have become very interested in exercising, nutrition, and staying healthy while maintaining their lifestyles and busy schedules. 

During the pandemic period, there was a huge problem with social interaction, since it was not recommended to gather in groups. The industry of fitness apps needed a new solution to cope with social distancing and support the competitive spirit.   

  • Our client has a popular fitness app and a huge distributed team working on every feature separately.  
  • Our client was looking for a strong mobile team with expertise in fitness apps development. 
  • The main requirement was to receive high-quality services and have good communication within the team. 
Solution

CHI Mobile team was responsible for a new app feature: leaderboard by location. There is a list of leaders by indicators around the world, among close friends, and among participants in one organization, for example, among employees of Google.

  • We came up with a solution to create a so-called Leaderboard by location. The main idea behind this feature is the following: a user could enter the competition table of their city/state, as well as in the country-level competition. It was possible to compete in different sports.
  • We also introduced a Leaderboard idea for companies, in which each company (employer) had its own Leaderboard, its competition, and leaders.
  • With this idea, people don't just do exercises but also earn points for the overall score to compete and to motivate each other.
Client values
  1. We gathered a professional development team fast, within 2 weeks
  2. Our developers came up with a unique idea and implemented a new helpful functionality.

Every new feature development in this all-in-one health and fitness app is done by a separate team. I was lucky to be a part of such a team. We had guys from around the globe and it was curious to hear so many different expert opinions! The technical skill of the entire team was very high. Imagine, there were people with more than 15 years of experience in the IT industry. We created “a product in a product'' and successfully released it. According to analysts and the financial department report, our functionality attracted more than 600 thousand $ in one year. It was cool to create a new high-quality solution that brings profit and real value.
