The Challenge

Guru Fantasy Reports wanted companion apps built for their Fantasy Football portal. They already had an iPhone version, but they wanted to enhance the functionality. The goals of the project were to provide a consistent look and feel across platforms, query and injest information from the site backend and incorporate value added features into the apps.

 

The Solution

 

One of the challenges was the absence of codebase for the old version of the iPhone application. Our iPhone developers had to completely build the app from scratch. Seeing the potential of the iPhone app, the client went ahead with the Android version as well. For news and information articles, the backend web content was dynamically adjusted to make it mobile friendly. Both apps are completely integrated with the site backend using secure web services. Since the apps shows a number of stats using tabular data format, a responsive layout was built so that the content could automatically adjust itself based on the screen real estate available.

 

The Result

 

FantasyGuru.com's MyGuru app is the perfect companion app for people who are on the move. The app offers targeted, concise and mobile optimised content to the sites' subscribers. Salient features include custom news and information for fantasy teams, general news, injury updates, projections and news articles.
