Technical Challenges Overcome

  • Customizing Facebook graph API — To get all the person’s friends and their likes we had to customize the graph API to get the accurate results.
  • Deep-linking for an image (Generating preview of URLs) — App had a feature to send messages to nearby users. They could attach image/image URL. Implementing this in real-time without delay was challenging.
  • Battery draining — App was continuously using the user’s location for various app features which in turn was draining the device battery. To overcome this issue we went in depth into location features of the iOS ecosystem.
