Impact Run Android App

Summary

ImpactRun is one of the most innovative apps in India. The app enables raising charity for a cause based on the number of kilometers run by a user. The founders were struggling with interns and freelancers in creating an app that could track users’ activity in real time.

We didn’t have to hire an Android team at all! Nor will we have to.

Challenge

Building a real time tracker that could track a user’s run is a challenging problem statement. With users trying to manipulate the system, creating an app that could identify exactly how much a user ran was even more difficult.

We identified the perfect Android developer for this project from our community who was keen to use his skill for social good. The biggest challenge with the tracking feature was the broad range of error margins in the GPS location data, which were significant enough to disturb the key mechanics of the app.

"After thorough research and brainstorming, we created a solution that involved designing of a sophisticated algorithm for tracking the most probable running curve to calculate the distance.

We identified the perfect Android developer for this project from our community who was keen to use his skill for social good.

After prototyping the tracking feature, the basic features for the app were then developed and integrated in no time. Ensuring high performance across all Android devices could have been a time consuming sprint, but we significantly reduced the testing time using the right set of testing and app performance monitoring tools.
