The Challenges

Video Trimmer

Well, upload and share of video on your smartphone device is not that hard enough but the real challenge is to upload the cut-scene of the video. During the development phase, it was quite complicated to build actual video trimmer. But our developers experience helped us to build custom video trimmer that helps the user to trim the video before making it viral.

Dynamic Categories Generation

Generally, application categories are fixed. But there may be a case where an increase in products or services can result in the addition of menu in apps. Our developers comprehend the scenario and developed dynamic menu where addition of menu by admin will automatically add the menu in the navigation bar.

Video on Demand

The scarcity of powerful internet services has demolished the video quality. So, to render the best quality videos inside the application, development team at Hyperlink Infosystem created customized web services. These web service renders stored videos link directly into the smartphone device to enjoy best video performance.

Language Conversion

The language was the biggest hindrance faced during app launch. So, to maintain app standard, we developed an interface that allows you to select between English and Arabic and as per your selection, the entire application is loaded in that particular language.
