The client wanted an app-based social network that connects users with unique health-related sensors and rewards them with discounts for their activity. We consulted with Jaywalk to build their business model and network of participating locations while simultaneously building their technical solution from stem to stern.
The app had to run on both Android and iOS and it had to be rock solid and location accurate. Using a combination of Swift, Java, and Django, the team put together all the parts needed to build an app that looked like a million bucks and cost much less.
To achieve the incentive for participation, we developed JayCoin—the company’s internal currency to pay users. More than just payment though, it is a virtual bank that keeps track of balances in real time.
Android and iOS apps came together in a few months and suddenly Jaywalk users walked over 100,000 miles using the app. Not bad for a health startup.
