The process of creating the App

During the beginning of pandemics in early year 2020, our client came up with an idea that it is a perfect time to bring in some innovation to the world of tourism by giving people a chance to travel around the country and discover outstanding locations without having to gather groups with other people.

Many of interesting and unseen locations are hidden in the forests, cities, or they just don’t have any signs pointing to it, so it’s sometimes tricky to find it without a guide. For this reason our client initiated the project of creating a virtual guide that would be available for anyone, anytime.

After discussing with the client and shaping the main idea of the product – our team has prepared wireframes – graphic draft of applications structure and user experience. On the base of it, the UX and UI were created and adjusted to the client’s idea and prepared content.

The application was built using the Flutter software development kit. It was chosen to create a single cross-platform codebase between iOS and Android application versions.

As the client and his employees have no experience in programming, they needed an easy to use Content Management System (CMS), so that they could add and update the content. In the CMS that we ceated, the client and his team are able to add new locations, group them into categories, add pictures, written stories, and even set theme 3D models for them.

In addition to developing the application, all the technical work like setting up the backend server, publishing the applications to App Store and Play Store, was carried out by Vilantis team.
