Challenges

1. Custom Camera:

In iPhone, to capture any moment or live shot, users use app's inbuilt camera. Development of a custom camera with features like capture image and video with a long press, exclude mirror effect to avoid image & video flipping and maintain media quality to HD level was indeed challenging and difficult. However, using inbuilt iOS class named AVCapture, our developers managed this scenario efficiently.

2. Managing Live Shots, Moments, Gallery and Highlights:

Whenever a user taps on “shots” tab, multiple images and videos play simultaneously. Handling image view and video controller on a single page to play a loop of videos and images simultaneously was quite complex. Our development team handled this scenario using the loop and implementing their custom logic.
