Xinthe founded in March 2001 with dream to become world's most admired software development and IT services Organization in India. Since then, Xinthe has emerged as leading software solutions provider across various Industry sectors in USA and APAC.
The challenge of the Station Locator project was to develop an Android and iOS adaptation of the existing web-based mobile application.
Xinthe's objectives for the project were to adapt as accurately as possible the web-based application to iOS and Android environments, while using the advantages of an application over a webapp.
The final version of the project was developed to be able to to plot the various gas Stations available within a defined distance with respect to the current location of the user.
The app also has navigation capabilites to guide the user to the nearest gas station. It also provides gas station details, such as the different fuel types available and their updated prices along with the ETA to each gas station.
The user can also plot the route between the current location and the chosen destination to see the ETA, the distance from it and gas stations available within 5 miles of the route. The mobile app also includes filters to allow the user to find a preferred gas station based on requirements such as gas brands or fuel types, among others.
The developer worked incredibly well in an ever changing requirements environment. Xinthe was very responsive and flexible. The only negative I would mention is their need to go through a formal requirements process and hold the customer accountable to those agreed upon requirements. It would have saved them a lot of scope creep and rework.
