Weather-Driven Application for iPhone

Our client, WSI (Weather Services International), is the world’s leading provider of weather-driven business solutions. Their innovative products, services and software satisfy the professional weather needs of the most demanding media, aviation, energy trading and utility customers in the world.

Business Challenge

WSI decided to strengthen its presence in the market by developing a weather application for mobile platforms. Since there are many weather applications already available for the iPhone, the client needed to differentiate the application from others, making it flexible and easily customizable for their customers.

Project Description

SoftServe developed a media Really Simple Syndication (RSS) parser and incorporated support for video services that provide acces s to media content via MRSS feeds. One of the challenges the SoftServe team encountered was to apply a real-time effect onto the overlay imagery. Therefore, it was decided to use Open Graphics Library (OpenGL) Application Programming Interface (API) to solve this task with the best performance.

Value Delivered

By delivering a top-notch mobile application for the iPhone, SoftServe created a new direction for our Client’s business. We helped WSI become more competitive within the mobile applications market, while strengthening their position in the weather-driven solutions industry. After this project’s success, we have delivered the product on other devices and mobile platforms, such as iPad and Android.
