Cura - Android TV And Cloud Display Image Management App

Cura app is a simple and handy image management software that allows you to sync and manage your photo or art wherever you are. Not only users who want to decorate their homes with their favorite photos, but also professional photographers and even art galleries who want to give audiences a new perspective on their work will find the app useful. Of course, the creation of this application would not have been possible without the specialists of Perfsol, which will be discussed below.

Cura - Android TV And Cloud Display Image Management App
Challenge

Having some work on the application in hand, the client was interested in ways of extending the functionality, the list of devices, and innovative solutions. Specifically, the client wanted:

  • Enable and easily manage the use of all types and sizes of quality digital displays or frames across brands and manufacturers in homes or buildings.
  • Provide easy-to-use applications and cost-effective services that enable as many consumers as possible to manage, display and enjoy their personal captured memories (images or videos) or their preferred art or photography on their digital displays.
  • Provide the capability for new value opportunities and business models to photographers, artists, and other creative professionals that could take advantage and add value to the above capabilities.

All of the above features were planned for Android TV displays. Having heard about Perfsol's rich experience in the niche of video streaming app development and image management, the client approached us for expertise. Needless to say, they got much more than they expected.

Business case

Work on the project began in accordance with all the standards of our well-honed business processes. After analyzing the client's idea and reviewing the documentation, we laid out a plan for further action. We started our Android TV development with one Android developer. This was quite enough at the first stages of the project.

The project started by implementing image management functionality for Android TV displays, but after a while, the customer realized that it was necessary to cover as many devices as possible, including Apple devices. So the project evolved into tvOS development as well as backend and could support AWS. Perfsol properly responded to the customer's requirements and extended the team with an iOS developer, one frontend(React) developer, a backend (Java) developer, and a DevOps engineer.

Solution

The development was successfully completed and the application went to release. The customer has received exactly the features he expected along with a high level of customer focus and technical skills.

In our digital age, it's not uncommon when people are losing precious reminders of significant events and memories in their family history. Cura developed by Perfsol makes it easy to keep these snapshots in a singular place and then easily cast your memories to devices, both in users' homes or to loved ones.

We can add that the Cura project was quite interesting due to the different tech challenges we faced along the way such as handling limitations of Android devices displaying images in Ambient mode, effective image management for large images, and image processing on AWS. Such tasks take techs out of their daily routine and allow them to reach their full potential, which is very much appreciated at Perfsol. Cura tech has been a great partner with whom we continue our fruitful cooperation for a year now.
