By incorporating these straightforward activities, individuals can improve their sleep, increase productivity, enhance physical fitness, elevate self-confidence, alleviate anxiety, manage stress, and gradually enhance their overall well-being. The Powercode team The Powercode team handled the following tasks: cloud infrastructure, back-end development, and administration panel implementation.
Excluding the trivial API and Admin development tasks, the client required several specific and interesting features like the app to handle high volumes of traffic and data, with an automatically scalable back-end capable of distributing the load as required. The customer also wanted all administrative tools to be accessible from a single location, including CMS, user management, a dashboard with charts and aggregated data, and accounting information. The default full report of Apple subscriptions available within the Apple Developer Dashboard was insufficient for the client, so they requested the integration of the full transaction log using the App Store Server API and the ability to export it as a table in .csv format within the admin panel. Also one of the objectives for the app was to have the capability to analyze user emotional states, assist in setting goals, and provide recommendations for actions such as viewing videos and images, reading instructions, doing exercises, and listening to background music to improve overall mood and well-being. To achieve this, the Admin Panel needed to be regularly updated with various types of content including text surveys, categories and filters, text instructions, images, audio files for meditations, videos with exercise guidance, and more.
The Powercode team encountered a couple of tech challenges that we overcame successfully. The first one was related to monitoring end-customers’ App Store transactions from our server. We faced an intermittent issue between the Apple subscription and the webhook, but our responsible QA engineer identified and reported the bug before the product launch. We implemented a workaround to ensure that the data was synced correctly and the database had the latest records.
The second challenge was related to handling advanced edge cases with in-app-subscriptions more gracefully. Although Apple manages the in-app subscriptions feature under the hood, some cases weren’t covered by Apple out of the box. We had to implement the respective back-end logic to handle the client’s requirements, such as limiting the number of active devices in use within a single subscription, compensating funds if the customer used a new AppleID but purchased a subscription from another account in the past, and canceling and compensating amount if the same customer accidentally purchased two subscriptions from two AppleIDs. We managed to overcome these challenges by implementing solid approaches that ensured the smooth functioning of the application logic.
The Powercode team was able to successfully deliver a robust and efficient back-end solution for our client’s platform. We were able to build tailored decisions that met their specific needs. Our responsibilities included transmitting business logic to the application logic, planning and creating a reliable and efficient back-end architecture, building APIs for the mobile application and admin panel, configuring secure and scalable cloud infrastructure, and providing testing and quality assurance. The final product was a landing page and iOS mobile application that seamlessly communicated with the back-end, providing users with a smooth and seamless experience. Our team’s efforts helped to ensure the platform was thoroughly tested and of the highest quality, resulting in a successful project for our client.
