WakesApp is a friendly ToDo pocket reminder. It is a mobile application developed for the iOS and Android platforms, in which you can manage your tasks with friends, organize various events and be prompted to complete them.
Our task was to create a native mobile application, in the style of WhatsApp, that would be used for sharing tasks between multiple users. The challenge was to setup the application in a way that allows the user to create a task as fast as possible.
The result of the project was a simple, easy to use, application in which users can assign tasks to each other. Consequently they are then reminded of these tasks without the need for any other settings.
Creating reminders with attachments
Aside from the standard way - through the app, it is also possible to send reminders via email or SMS and they still get added and updated in the system.
SMS, Email and Push notifications
We have used standard channels for user notifications and implemented an SMS gateway for text messages. We made sure to execute tests of various SMS gateways to ensure a proper response to receiving an SMS code.
Reacting to reminders via email
In case a user doesn't have the app installed on their phone, it is still possible to react to events directly from within the email reminder and even use chat, thanks to a special UI.
Naturally, it is possible to track whether tasks have been completed by the user or whether completion was not possible.
Through synchronisation of contacts within the app, each user can see which of their friends use it and directly send them a task.
Reminders (tasks) must be available even without access to the internet and thus all tasks and messages are stored on the device and are available anytime the user needs them.
Users can communicate with each other directly in the event or via private chat. Messages are sent to the device without noticeable delay.
Synchronisation with local calendar
The ensure syncing, it was necessary to setup mapping of calendar data into tasks. Subsequently we made sure that tasks are kept up to date even after changes occurred in the native calendar app. To avoid bothering users with too many notifications we made special adjustments to the calendar settings.
For our production infrastructure we used the Amazon platform, for our servers we chose a US data centre location to guarantee low response times and we performed a set of performance test across continents. We even created a Database cluster to gather all available data.
