The following key services were completed to deliver this project.
Methys utilises wireframing tools to develop a visual skeleton of the application to aid in the functional analysis process. These wireframes highlight common UI & UX elements, and describes user interaction and navigational flow within the project.
Design mock-ups of key application / website components are created. The final designs are presented as static images, providing a representation of the final look and feel of the project to the client before development commences.
The application was built natively for Blackberry 10 and to work on multiple screen sizes.
Quality assurance takes place by a dedicated tester using the test cases defined during the analysis process. These test cases will be used in the final testing and QA phases.
On completion of the project the app was deployed to the app store.
