In it, we’ll give you insights into our creative minds, step-by-step tutorials, and expert tips we used to build this innovative teaching tool. Come hop on this road with us as we go through mobile app development and find out what it really took to make Zoundslike a reality!
How We Built Zoundslike, a Mobile eLearning App from Scratch
Building Zoundslike was an incredible experience for us, Let’s take a closer look at how we have developed this eLearning app,
Project Start Status:
The client had initially tried their hand at using Vue.js for their eLearning app. However, due to a lot of difficulties, the team couldn’t find ways around the issues and over two years the app never saw completion. Testing was insufficient, resulting in several potential bugs and errors for users to face. On top of that, it wasn’t created with user experience in mind and instead only prioritized completion. This proved to be a terrible idea as smooth navigation wasn’t possible and frustrated users. There are also a lot of compatibility issues that prevent it from being used on Apple devices.
We ran into an issue with the sound. It was dry on Apple devices and we couldn’t figure out why. Then it hit us, most people use iPhones, the most popular smartphone in the world. We had to get this fixed, so we started our debugging process to find the root cause of the problem. Eventually, we found out that this problem was a result of how hardware and software connect. There was a struggle between the two, making things complicated for us, especially when integrating Twilio API specifically with certain versions of Safari on iOS.
We had to get in there and fix it. Our team knew the problem needed full attention. And that is exactly what we gave it. We pulled together our expertise and knowledge of the technology at hand, and dove headfirst into debugging. In this process we broke down the challenge bit by bit, searching for any trace as to why this kept happening. After some time, we figured out a solution. It was a huge accomplishment because nobody else could’ve done it.

Develop and Improve:
Pushing past sound issues, we also did some active work in developing and enhancing the app. Upgrading the codebase was a primary focus for us. Doing so meant improved performance, security, and compatibility with future updates to come. And we can’t forget about testing, since no development is complete without it. We tested constantly to ensure that this app was as robust as possible. Improving the features was also part of our plan. The goal here was to make this thing as intuitive and engaging for the user as possible.
Mobile App Development:
It’s no question that mobile applications are the way to go. A big task was to develop a mobile app from scratch, but we were able to do it. The first step was analyzing the existing web app and understanding how its core functionality worked, then trying to reimagine all of that into a mobile-friendly interface. Our main goal was to bring the client’s vision come to life and meet the expectations of their users. After carefully planning everything out, we delivered a seamlessly functional app available on both iOS and Android platforms.
App Store Setup and Certification:
Creating an app is a massive milestone for any company. So naturally, we wanted to ensure that it’s made available on as many platforms as possible. The first step was getting it approved on the major app stores, the Play Store and App Store. It wasn’t just about fixing bugs and making it look pretty. Guidelines and best practices were in place that had to be followed. We managed this by tackling certifications and addressing platform-specific issues. An easy way to put it is that if we did everything right, we could achieve a smooth launch with an app that would be seen by way more people than ever before.
To keep money in the client’s pocket, we looked for ways to do it without cutting any corners. The result was moving the app to an already existing Digital Ocean account. Not only did we save substantial monthly hosting expenses but also saved them from paying to move everything over. It’s a good thing too because they were going to decide in the next few weeks if they’d keep it or not.
To make the app perform better and be seen more, we’ve started a bunch
of improvements. The first one is search engine optimization to increase
discoverability. After fixing audit concerns we made the app comply with
industry guidelines. And then there’s social media marketing to make it
visible which led to people downloading it more and improving brand image.

User Interface Enhancements:
A critical part of making users happy is the layout of an app. We hunkered down for one to two months and put all our focus into enhancing it. We were able to do a lot with the user interface. An overall redesign, making it look and feel better with refined aesthetic, optimizing the way they navigate for a more intuitive experience, and the final touch was giving it a more delightful appeal to users.
Admin Panel Development:
We noticed the need for strong management tools. So we said, “Let’s make an admin panel,” and that’s exactly what we did. From the ground up, we developed new software to be used in the management of Zoundslike. This tool was so helpful because it gave insights into user behavior, how our app was being used, and what categories were being clicked on the most. Enough data to drive our decision-making process.
Client Satisfaction and Recognition:
Success comes in two ways — clients telling us they’re happy and seeing their business improve. Fortunately for us, client satisfaction was high in this project with Zoundslike. These endorsements are reflected in a flattering review on Clutch, a well respected platform for customer reviews. It shows how dedicated our team is to problem solving, and how impactful our work made this app successful.

Cross-platform mobile eLearning apps offer advantages such as cost-effectiveness, code reusability, wider audience reach (iOS and Android), faster development cycles, and consistent user experience across platforms.
Popular technologies for developing cross-platform eLearning apps include React Native, Flutter, Xamarin, Vue Native, and Ionic. These frameworks enable developers to write code once and deploy it across multiple platforms.
User-friendly design is paramount in eLearning apps as it directly impacts user engagement and learning outcomes. Intuitive navigation, appealing UI/UX, easy-to-understand content, and interactive elements are crucial for enhancing the overall learning experience.
App testing should encompass functional testing, usability testing, performance testing, security testing, and compatibility testing across various devices and platforms. Rigorous testing ensures a bug-free, smooth, and reliable app experience.
Implementing data encryption, secure authentication processes, compliance with data protection regulations, regular security audits, and educating users about data privacy measures are essential steps to ensure the security and privacy of user data.
