Solution

The IntexSoft team developed native applications for both iOS and Android platforms.

 

One of the main tasks was to set up a search for gas stations. It enables the user to see the details of the nearest gas stations: address, distance, fuel types, and working hours. In addition, these details are synchronized when the app is launched, so it’s possible to search for gas stations even in offline mode.

 

We customized a routing feature: a user can specify the starting and ending points of the trip, and the app will show the optimal route on the map. The app also allows voice navigation. To ensure correct map integration, we wrote separate modules for iOS and Android.

 

One more task was to set up an evacuator call within the app. A user only needs to press the button to make a call. We also set up another way of communication: via the mobile app, a user can send a request, and the evacuation service will receive it with information about the user’s geolocation and contact information.

 

The IntexSoft team developed the app for offline use. To update the information in the app, we used a third-party service through which information is stored in the database on the device.

 

To ensure high usability, we added a push notifications feature., we added a push notifications feature.
