This application was developed for the client’s sports website. The client wanted an Android App as an extension to the existing features of their website. The idea was to interactively engage their audience using mobile technology. This Sports Forum Application aimed to help users ask questions related to sports and get answers from experts.

The app was developed in Android 2.3, but supports for higher versions were available too. We also developed a mechanism through which users could pay (using PayPal) to buy credits. Later on they could use these credits to ask questions to the experts. The application requires server interaction and supports Urban Airship Push Notification, using C2DM as a transport method.
The final product was an engaging app for the intended sports website. It acted as a platform of engagement between users and sports experts and helped the website improve retention rates of its users. It also helped in drawing a whole new wave of visitors to the website.
