Custom mobile app – sports events organiser

The brief: To produce a cost-effective and easy to use mobile app which works offline and lets users and organisers schedule sporting events, track registration and participation. It also needed an admin area to analyse participation based on location, demographics and other parameters.

The challenge: Build an app with a limited budget which had offline syncing functionality, worked on iOS and Android platforms and tracked complex matrices like participation, demographics and regions.

The result: We decided to build a cross-platform app using web technologies and PhoneGap targeted to multiple mobile ecosystems, in order to keep costs down. We built a REST-based API so players could mark their attendance without installing the app. An admin interface was created to visualise matrices like demographics, attendance and regions with the help of graphs.
