The best part of this app is, It designed for online and offline purpose so no need to have internet connectivity constantly to use this app.
A client wanted to make an app where visitors can run at their own pace to the best places and sights of the Greece city, and they can know its culture and history with vocal and on-screen GPS directions, whenever they choose. With this platform, visitors have no any tension for tourist buses and pre-arranged hours for guided tours. Moreover, he wanted to make this platform online and offline so if visitors have no internet connectivity even though they can use this app. With taking this idea he approached Hyperlink InfoSystem to develop SightRunnin' Greece app for Android and iOS platform. After the internal team discussion, we also analyzed and suggest some interesting and useful things like users can have their actual data about long they are running, how much their calories burnt, their actual steps of a package tour. It is the most beautiful spots are within your reach in the most economical and ecological way.
A client wanted to develop an app which works on offline mode also. Once users download tour plan, they can use geo guidelines and get information about historical places on offline mode. To give proper information like a map, geolocation data or vocal according to a selected package on offline mode was a little bit tough for our developers. Our developers have managed this whole feature when an app is on online mode, they check if any saved tours have any modification done by admin, developers need to update full package and sync that modification with our located server to provide proper data on offline mode.
As per app scenario, when users running their phone is on lock mode at that time they enter any nearby historical place, we need to give popup regarding that place information if they want to get guidance about that place though headphone. To fetch nearby location and give popup to their locked phone was little bit tough task when their phone is on lock mode. At developing time, our developers have done overlay service & wake up call for the popup in the lock screen so users can easily get a dialog on their locked screen.
