The Client

This mobile app serves as a social networking platform for those who plan to start their fertility journey. It helps users search for fertility clinics worldwide, book doctor appointments, consult the best doctors on infertility, explore clinic reviews, post fertility-related updates on personal feeds, and candidly talk about infertility, surrogacy, IVFs, donor conception, etc., on discussion forums. The app contains all the networking elements that help an online community grow.

Challenge image

Capital Numbers had to develop this mobile app end-to-end. We had to take care of both the frontend and backend and deploy it within the stipulated timeline.

Our priority for this project was to come up with a UI that looks clean. It had to be high on discoverability with no visual clutter. The idea was to help users find new elements without fuss.

Secondly, we had to use only two colors to provide a consistent visual appeal. Our focus was to use this color scheme to make the content easier to read and not feel overwhelming.

Next, we had to add critical features like forums, groups, feeds, etc., that can bring people closer and get them talking.

So, Capital Numbers got its frontend and backend teams together to kickstart this project. We worked as a unified force to define the business logic that can help an online community expand.

The idea was to create an app that fosters connections and conversations. Accordingly, we crafted the design flow of the app, keeping the interests of the users in mind.

Loan Comparison Platform Development

As for the tech stack, we used the following:

We used WordPress for the backend because it offers multi-user logins, which was extremely important for building a community-based app. Also, WordPress is mobile-responsive and offers 100% customizations as per business needs.

We chose Ionic for the frontend because of its UI elements. It offers native compatibility and helps change the look and feel of an app with just HTML and CSS modifications. Besides, Ionic apps are easy to test on Android and iOS with the help of Cordova commands.

We integrated Google Maps API to help users find different fertility clinics around their locality and overseas.

Firebase was our immediate choice for sending push notifications to users on topics that they subscribe to. The best part is that Firebase helps send custom messages with just a single line of code.

To add scalability and connectivity, we used REST APIs. They keep apps lightweight and help developers code on them quickly.

Finally, we hosted the app on GoDaddy because it offers on-demand scalability, faster page loads, and 99.9% uptime. GoDaddy also ensures 24*7 network security, thereby providing peace of mind knowing that the app is monitored nonstop.

Results

The above technologies combined with collective design decisions helped Capital Numbers successfully launch this app on time. This user-friendly mobile app provides one-touch access to various community discussions.

We contributed in areas such as:

UI Wireframing

We walked in our users’ shoes to thoroughly understand the use case. We were quick enough to experiment with different layouts to see what fits before finalizing an interactive wireframe.

UX Strategy

We optimized the number and order of screens to cater to users’ needs.

Our goal was to ensure a clear transition between screens.

Multiple Screens

After finalizing the UX strategy, we designed the following screens for the app:

  • Splash - The Splash screen is minimalistic, with just the name and logo of the product, to make that first impression.
  • Profile - The Profile section requires the users to sign up with personal IDs or social logins to receive notifications along the way.
  • Feed - The Feed has a clean layout that encourages users to engage in conversations they’d otherwise have face-to-face.
  • Search - The searches provide an excellent input experience where users can enter their preferred location to find the best fertility clinics.
  • Groups - There are open and closed groups for users to share their personal stories at will.
  • Chat - Users can also chat with fellow community members to share their personal stories one-on-one.
  • Connections - The Connections section lets users build new contacts all year long.

Secure Login

While designing the login page, we specifically worked on a secure sign-on with verification codes to keep identity thefts at bay.

Privacy Settings

Our team even added personalized settings for users to control their group activity exposure.

Grid View

We also broke down the interface into a grid view to organize a jigsaw of information and line up everything perfectly.

Networking Elements

As planned, we centralized all networking elements by bringing together feeds, chats, forums, etc. - within a single space.

Community Sharing

Within a short time, we developed an app that redefines community engagement and brings people with similar interests together.

Smooth User Journey

As a leader in mobility solutions, Capital Numbers could perfectly visualize the user journey and prioritize the mobile screens accordingly.

Increased App Installs

We’re genuinely proud of our vetted developers for prototyping a navigation flow that attracts and retains new users (both on Android and iOS platforms) every month.

Currently, this app serves as a global community for all those who want to discuss fertility issues and treatment options without stigma.
