Business Challenge

In our high-speed world, people need to exchange messages faster to speed up problem-solving and be responsive to any changes in the business environment or everyday life. We learn and discover a considerable amount of information from different resources, social networks, and channels. The real-time text messaging chat should have been created to help users to keep track of events and the latest news. The messaging system should combine the best features of social networks and charts (music, films, etc.), and help people to communicate with each other faster and more efficiently.

The client requested to develop an easy-to-use, simple, and flexible mobile text messaging chat application that allows users to share information and communicate in real-time, create, and change profiles in social networks and popular channels. The core functionality should include real-time monitoring of the news updates and useful information in the selected channels. Moreover, the app should be convenient, intuitive, and user-friendly.

Solution

XB Software development team was asked to build a user-friendly and interactive mobile messaging app to allow communication in real-time. Another feature of the messenger should include the creation of a switch function to move between different views and tabs. Users should be permitted to update and edit their profiles and set channel preferences.

The real-time text messaging system was required to be developed by the latest technological trends and operate on all existing mobile platforms. To fulfill this demand XB Software team selected PhoneGap technology which maximizes application performance while minimizing production time. Moreover, this technology allowed to get faster debug and build cycles.

The mobile real-time messaging app should provide for the option of multiple communications in the chat, and allow users to create and view others profiles. WebSockets technology was used to permit collaborative work of various users and enable real-time updates.

We used HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, and JQuery framework to build a modern look and feel of the application and make it responsive both on the small and full screens. The front-end was implemented using HTML5 and CSS, which helped create an eye-catching design and build a complete and interactive real time messaging app.
