Designing and developing for mobile devices is an area that Gemixin specialise in.
We have various in-house projects currently in development for a range of mobile platforms. In October 2012 we released an award winning Android app called Starting Blocks to help mobile novices engage with their devices more easily. We have also created an iPad and Blackberry Playbook game called Space Words where players control a spaceship to make words. Visit the Products Page for more info on our in-house developed apps and games.
In terms of client projects, we have recently developed an iOS and Android app for the University of Warwick Library called ‘libmap’ to help students find resources and navigate around the building. It features detailed floor plans with a search system that zooms and pans to the relevant part of the map. The app is available to download for free on the Apple App Store and Google Play store.
Another large client project that we have undertaken is the official mobile app for the London 2012 Olympic Games in Coventry. The project was run by Coventry City Council and we were chosen as the sole developers for this official mobile app. Gemixin handled all design, prototyping, user testing, development and deployment for the project in-house.
The app was developed for 7 different mobile platforms!
- iOS (iPhone and iPad) *
- Android (2.1 and above)
- Bada (Samsung Wave, Wave II and Wave 3 phones)
- BlackberryOS (OS5.0+)
- HP WebOS
- Windows Phone (7.5+)
- Symbian (WRT compatible phones)
* A separate native version of the app (using native interface elements but with the same content and structure) was created for iOS to meet App Store approval. There was also a web app for iOS that was identical to the other platforms and allowed users who have devices running an older version of iOS to access the app.
It was the ultimate guide to Coventry during the Olympic Games and featured all the latest news and results for the football events being held at the City of Coventry Stadium along with a whole host of information about the city for visitors.
