What do you do?
We have developed various kinds of web applications on open source and Microsoft platform. We are working actively on the hybrid mobile application development using Telerik Mobile app builder in addition to working on native iOS and Android development.
Which would you say are the best apps you have developed and why?
Beacon App for Apple and Android is a personal tracking application that allows users to broadcast their position on the phone with a randomly-generated temporary password, which they pass on to those they wish to be able to follow their position. The app uses Google Maps and generate the random pin to be shared with the location of the user. The pin can be saved for future use too if you know you are going to be frequenting the same place over and over again.
Sliders. It is a simple game where you try to make the ball land in the right colored trash can. As the game progresses, the levels become more and more difficult in terms of ball speed, randomness of ball colour and placing of similar colored trash cans. Although the game is comparatively simple, yet, it employs complex ball motions like bouncing, trajectory and falling. Sliders has laid down the foundation for our further work in the field of mobile gaming.
AUTOtexto is an application which allows you to automatically send pre-written SMS. You set a number and save a particular message you might want to send on that number. Now you no longer have to type a message everytime. Just send the pre-saved template as many times as you want. The possibilities are endless (SMS, managing remote modems, home automation use, etc.) for you to make the most of the application.
PhotosWare is a real time digital platform to receive updates from your team in the form of images and videos from anywhere anytime. The application is a cloud hosted solution and would let the user to upload upto 100 MB of data at one point of time from mobile as well as laptop/desktops. The app uses 'custom camera' technique which allows the user to click five consecutive images without having to exit the active camera mode, and add a common description to them before sending to the admin. You can even choose the resolution of the photos you want to send.
Which apps would you have loved to develop and why?
I wish our team had worked on Candy Crush Saga, for many reasons. It is a simple game the likes of which have existed for a long time, but King took it to an all new level by giving it an interesting UI, and on top of it, its integration with Facebook for requesting help from friends and most of all its business logistics that have created this viral phenomena.
Which are the 5 apps you use the most on a daily basis?
WhatsApp, Temple Run, Facebook, Native Android Calendar and Flipkart.
Which mobile device is the best in the market right now?
iPhone remains the supreme leader and we find it the best device.
What kind of device/platform will be the next big thing?
In my opinion, Android-based mobile devices are going to grow as the next big thing. As for the platform, Hybrid platforms will gain popularity and therefore the momentum of their growth.
