Our client, an agricultural industry professional, needed to create a custom mobile app that would help people find and identify cover fields. Cover fields are a plot of land planted by farmers to help replenish the nutrients in the soil. Many people find these sites fascinating and the client wanted to meet the needs of these cover field enthusiasts by creating a custom mobile app to help them.
The agricultural industry professionals wanted a custom mobile app that used map data to help users discover and mark the cover fields within the app. Initially, our client did not think this would be possible and was unsure that they could create a successful app.
By speaking with the client, Idea Maker understood that to make the app useful to all the cover fields enthusiasts they would need a custom mobile app that worked on both Apple and Android devices. In the beginning, they were worried that this would take an undue amount of time.
Using Idea Maker’s development process, we realized that to build the My Covers creators a successful custom mobile app, we would need to create a cross-platform custom mobile app. Cross-platform mobile apps work on both iOS and Android devices. This gives creators access to all smart device users.
Idea Maker accomplished the cross-platform custom mobile app development by using React Native and Firebase. We felt React Native and Firebase were the best app development environments for the My Covers custom mobile app. We determined this based on our years of experience developing custom mobile apps.
To allow users to mark and find cover fields with the custom mobile app, Idea Maker used Google Maps API. Using the Google Maps API, our team of developers was able to create the functionality within the app that allowed users to find and mark cover fields near them.
Idea Maker built the custom mobile app quickly and successfully to meet the needs of the My Covers team.
