Case Study | Chatstasy Mobile App

About Client

The client reached A3logics mobile app development team with a request to create an iPhone messaging app - Chatstasy with more intuitive, user-friendly and picture-based chat button functionalities, which are simply absent in other apps already available in the market. The client was looking for a reliable and proven strategic IT solution provider with expertise in iPhone app development domain to execute his concept into a viable product.

Business Challenge

The client company was looking to build a configurable EHS platform/solution for its end users with the following features:

  • The client was looking for a WhatsApp-like feature-rich app but with a modern twist. The twist was to create a picture-based chat button iPhone messenger app, which allows end-users to perform multiple common tasks like calling, texting, contact management with few easy clicks via the app.
  • Another challenge was that the client had made up his mind to create an iPhone messenger app with large-picture chat buttons so that older age people and youngsters can use the app conveniently and instantly with a one-tap on the large button to send a text or call someone. The challenge in this for our development team was to push forward such functionality without compromising on the app’s message delivery speed and performance.
  • The client was also very specific about the Chatstasy app dialer. The client wanted an app dialer that should be feature-rich, containing important buttons with the presence of the contact picture. The idea behind creating a large dialer is to make it simpler and convenient for use for the target audience - youngsters and older people.
  • The client was also concerned about the health and security function of the app in order to make it extremely useful for end-users in an emergency. The client was looking for setting up an “emergency contact” button in the app interface, so users can summon the nearest ambulance in a dire situation, no matter which part of the world they are located in. Setting up the ambulance numbers from around the world in the app database and updating them regularly was a crucial challenge.
  • Presence of dynamic status indicators on the picture-based chat icons of contacts that indicates their local time, current location, aeroplane mode, and busy condition.
  • Last, but not least, the client has also set expectations with our iPhone app developers to create a completely new and unique UI/UX for Chatstasy, which is not used by any other existing app present in the iPhone app ecosystem.
