Instago – New Client

We are very proud to announce that we have teamed up with India based mobile start-up, Instago.  We are collaborating to bring a suite of mobile apps to market.

Instago Pte Ltd has appointed us to provide various services.  We are providing strategic and technical guidance whilst also contributing to key decisions.  We are also undertaking the software development efforts to drive delivery of the apps themselves.  We are currently targeting the core mobile platforms – Apple and Android.

The project consists of building social activity based platform technologies.

MvvmCross Contributions

Whilst we have been working on various mobile solutions we have made extensive use of open source libraries, in particular MvvmCross.

MvvmCross has been in development for a number of years and is used to underpin some very high profile commercial Xamarin based mobile applications.  The primary focus of the library is to bring a unified WPF-like data binding approach to all available mobile and desktop platforms.  Being able to use a design pattern such as Mvvm on platforms like iOS hugely increases developer productivity and application unit testing.  We highly recommend this framework.

Over the past few months we have made a number of code contributions back into this excellent framework.  Currently our main contribution has been in creating the MvvmCross iOS Support library to aid fellow developers developing for the Apple platform.

JTI – Hamlet Cigars

We have recently completed work on a new web site for the very well known Japan Tobacco International owned brand Hamlet Cigars.  We worked alongside the excellent London based digital media and branding agency One Darnley Road.

The new site was required to launch alongside other media channels to complete a re-branding exercise and contains brand information and all their historical television and radio advertising materials.

Since the controls around marketing and advertising tobacco products is highly regulated in the UK the site has some unique requirements around controlling how users register, authenticate and perform age verification against the integrated ID3Global web services.
