Mobile Apps for Comic Con Portuguese Participants
The main challenge of this project was to build, in 3 weeks, mobile apps for Windows, iOS and Android that gave Comic Con Portugal attendees a great user experience. The main goal was to make relevant information about the event available – the latest news, exhibitors, special guest appearances, exclusive items, maps and more. To guarantee the success of this project, Comic Con Portugal selected Xpand IT as o¬fficial partner to make their mobile vision come true.
Our partnership with Xpand IT and Microsoft was fantastic and in a short period of time resulted in mobile apps that enhance users’ experience across all devices. This is a very effective channel to engage and interact with event attendees, and this project really exceeded our expectations!
- High quality Apps in record time (3 weeks)
- Improve participants’ experience
- Ability to consult News, Updates and Agenda
- Special guest bios and photos
- Location map
The project consisted of creating 4 apps (Windows, Windows Phone, iOS and Android) in a very small timeframe and this led to the choice of Xamarin as the preferred technology. Choosing Xamarin was fairly natural since it allows using Microsoft technologies for developing cross-platform apps, ensuring performance and user experience. Besides, other Xamarin products also allowed a high level of confidence in the result, namely Xamarin Insights (for cross-platform monitoring) and Xamarin Test Cloud (to test the apps’ behaviour in different devices and with dierent OS versions).
