At Kolyada Group we have been actively engaged in deepening our expertise in existing mobile technologies, as well as piloting emerging ideas and concepts. As the future development of technology is expected to be influenced by mobile devices with ever increasing computing power and ubiquitous Internet access, it becomes important not only to keep up with the evolving technology, but also to stay ahead of the changing mobile industry trends.
Our engagement with mobile technologies is structured into three projects:
• Mobile applications
Full cycle development and launch of applications providing value to the users by analyzing their behavior, interests, and needs; improving productivity; assisting in making decisions; helping create collaborative environments and social networks.
Technologies/capabilities: Android (Java), iOS (Objective-C, Swift), Wndows Phone (C#)
Our in-house team and the network of collaborators around the globe have been piloting new ideas in:
• Wearable technologies
Our programming for wearable gadgets is aimed at increasing functionality and usability of devices, such as smart watches and activity trackers, through improvements in operating systems, integration with other mobile devices, content development and adaptation.
• Internet of the Things
The Kolyada team is currently envisioning and prototyping a number of ideas and solutions for the “smart home,” industrial automation, and entertainment application. We have been focusing on software development and hardware integration for the micro-computers, micro-controllers, and micro-sensors used to unite gadgets and equipment.
Technologies/capabilities: Arduino Uno, Raspberry Pi; ZigBee
An application that would address the needs of millions by assisting them in making both everyday decisions on what to wear and wise budget spending on one’s wardrobe. Code-named The Fashion App, the application is envisioned as a universally applicable tool that would turn tough and boring experience of shopping into more enjoyable and productive activity. Kolyada’s Fashion App is uniquely suited for assisting the users in making seemingly tough decisions what to put on for a special occasion or every morning.
With a professional fashion designer and artist as our staff member and project partner, we teamed with fashion experts, clothes designers and artists, as well as we polled opinions of dozens of target audience users, in order to develop a digital solution that would uniquely address unmet need of the many: what to wear and how to own an efficient wardrobe without overinvesting in clothes.
From the user perspective the app allows to get personalized recommendation on what to buy and what to own in under five clicks.
From the technical point of view the app features:
- unique combination of high-resolution bitmap images and scalable vector graphics;
- innovative algorithm of verifying item matching with a user’s profile and preferences;
- data-efficient communication protocol between the front-end and the server;
- visually appealing effects of the retina display and Objective-C coding.
