YappApp is a location-based, crowdsourcing app providing bang up-to-date information on what’s going on around you, in real time. The client came to us with the idea and we helped him develop it into a fully functioning cross-platform mobile app. YappApp allows its users to report on live events, each categorised for easy viewing. They can include photos and videos and other users can add their version of events and reactions.
Other Development Work
As well as developing the App for both iPhone and Android, Appware built an automatically scalable backend server system using Amazon hosting services. During the early development it was also decided that a web based control panel would be required to manage content which had been reported as inappropriate or spam.
