08 Feb Lotto – A Lottery Application
8 FEB 2018
Our client is a leading telecom service provider for South Africa. As a value added service they provided an opportunity for their registered users to play the South African National Lottery via cell phone. The registered users could win millions of Rand in the lottery game
Clients concocted a thought
The purpose of this project is to build a Lottery mobile front-end to the web Lotto product with full functionality to utilise the product on Mobile. The Application needs to take the Lotto Customer interface as the primary layout and Client Customer Interfaces as secondary. This mobile front-end will need to provide all the core functionalities, Layouts, navigation elements and process flows and these will be reviewed and approved by the client.
The application had to work on almost all smart phones that included iPhone, Android and Blackberry including the tab version.
Some of the main challenges developing this application were:
Designing the UI as the application had to provide similar look and feel across multiple devices and platforms irrespective of the screen size
What we proposed
After reviewing all the requirements of the clients, Star K technical team proposed to use Rho Mobile for developing the application. The biggest advantage of using Rho Mobile was to ensure easy portability of the mobile application to different platforms such as iPhone, Android, Blackberry and Windows mobile while retaining the native look and feel of the application.
Since the client was providing the web services, the application had to interact with web services and pass the information. The technology used to build this application was
- Rho Mobile (version Rhodes-3.1.1)
- Ruby (Language)
Results & benefits obtained
The key benefits realized by the Client as a result of the successful project include:
- Successful launch of application within a given time frame to meet their go to market strategy
- Customer saved thousands of dollars on rebuilding the app on different platforms
