Neev helped DMAC Group LLC build a unique Social Networking App with video streaming capabilities which allowed users to locate and share information about bars and pubs.
The client, DMAC Group LLC is a startup founded in 2011 by friends: Drew Williams, Colin Peek, Matt Olson and Adam McDaniel in the USA.
The client wanted to develop a video streaming App to find, visually explore (through a live feed) and share information about registered bars in the US. On the one hand, the bar-owner could sign up and create a page for his bar and on the other hand, the bar-goer could sign-in, locate and share the bar information with friends. They wanted to start with a Mobile App (iPhone or Android), and then move on to a Web App. Another essential requirement was to enable users across mobile platforms to exchange profile information by bumping their phones into one another. This would ensure that information is exchanged only between two people who know each other in person, a unique social feature.
To achieve this, a ‘wireframe’ for design and development was created. Neev handled end-to-end design for the App on iOS and Android platforms as well as the website. A GPS tracking system was designed which would enable the user to locate a certain bar. The live video feeds were in m3u8 format, for which iOS offers native support. In order to enable Android to play from an m3u8 source, a Wowza Server was designed to which the streams would be published through an RTSP port and finally they would be pushed to the Android device. The bump feature was implemented by using the Bump API for Android and iOS.
