SIPP is a hybrid mobile application supported on both iOS and Android platforms. It allows users to create and join party events that are happening near them. The app also serves as a social media platform where users can share pictures and videos of their experiences attending those events.
Keeping up with the latest trends and understanding what the consumers are looking for, our client wanted to get a mobile application made that would allow partygoers to socialize more conveniently. They wanted to bridge the social gap between people who had shared interests and offer them a digital platform through which they could connect virtually and then meet in person. As a visionary, the client wanted to incorporate cutting-edge features into the mobile app in order to enhance the overall user experience. For that matter, he approached us and asked for our insights on how the mobile app could be improved. Additionally, they wanted a dedicated web portal to serve as a Super Admin panel from which they could easily control the app's activities. As always, we didn't waver from our commitment to deliver their desired results.

Challenges We Helped Overcome
1. Integrating Payment Management System
The client was looking for a way to automate the transaction process of the payment made for events. Initially, the client was receiving the money from the event joiners, who had no means to deliver it to the users who had created the event. We catered to the problem by integrating a platform account for the client and sub-accounts for users who were posting the events. This way, the payment could be delivered directly to the event poster and not diverted to the clients. As a plus, the client trusted our suggestion of implementing QR codes on the e-tickets to authenticate each transaction.
2. Recurring Bugs Throughout the Development
Throughout the development of the SIPP application, our development team confronted all kinds of bugs. There were UI bugs that caused issues in the app's design. Compatibility issues were also faced by the Fictive's developers, where the app failed to run on different devices effectively. This was particularly a major issue because the app was supposed to be hybrid, which needed to run smoothly on both iOS and Android devices. All in all, it was a developmental chaos. Did we give up? Absolutely not! Not only did our developers pull through with the seamless delivery, but they also suggested an additional feature to implement within the app based on gender selection. This allows event posters and joiners to know whether the joining or posting party is a male or a female. The suggestion proved to be fruitful for the client.
