Since both Guild founders have a long track record as entrepreneurs, we knew they needed a smart solution to the problem they were trying to solve so they get the business value fast along with quality code.
First of all, we had to decide on a tech stack for Guild. They needed a fast, intuitive app, which delivered unique value. Cross-platform solutions seemed a viable option due to the great balance between performance and cost. And user experience is critical if you’re competing with giants in the messaging field like WhatsApp. Key challenges in this project included:
- Delivering a product with an exceptional user experience
- Handling real-time events — a critical part of any messaging app
- Handling push notifications, camera access, access to images and other files
