Stoke, rebranded as AWSM is a custom social networking mobile application specially designed for friends and families to connect and stay connected.

Background

Social App Designed For Friends And Families

Awsm is a social app designed to help folks to stay connected with friends and families. The application is private, positive and personal and geared towards keeping real connections alive. The application is designed to be everything that the current landscape of social media apps are not. The implication of which is:

  • No advertisements
  • Zero tracking or sharing of users’ data
  • No algorithms in place adjusting the data that the users see
  • Users can only view messages and pictures shared by people they know to trust
  • Ability to save data and play it back when needed
  • Geared towards privacy in social media for families and groups

Like many social media applications, the app has the ability to share text, photos, video, and audio. The app also gives the user the ability to add links and audio in captions and photos.

A unique feature of Awsm is unique questions and prompts that guide users to send meaningful personal messages to people within their network.

Problems

  • The client had an idea for a unique social networking application but didn’t know where to start.
  • The client had a rough sketch of what they wanted that included:
    • A mobile app to allow users to share memories and stories about people
    • It should be a positive place to connect, grow and make new friends
  • The client needed to hire a custom mobile application development company to bring their idea to life. In particular, development was focused around building a peerless custom iOS application.
  • The application aimed to provide a premium experience and focused on the iOS platform.

Solution

  • Zibtek’s mobile application development services team was engaged to build the application from the ground up.
  • The application was written in Swift and uses Apollo (graphql) to communicate with its backend.
  • The finished product is connected with third-party APIs and external data sources

Result

  • The app was built and made available to the public in the Apple Store
  • The iOS app was well received and is rated as a 4.8/ 5-stars
  • The application continues to function as a social media platform today
  • The tool is used as a marketing mechanism to attract new clients to the client’s firm
