Technology partner for healthcare apps
Edelman appointed Milo as their technology partner to work on digital innovation projects in the healthcare sector. Our mobile app development team and Edleman's digital product development team were eager to work together right away. We worked iteratively on digital product development using agile methodologies to solve the problem for the target audience.
A high benchmark
A performant custom keyboard for iOS and Android requires a lot of specialised work. Both Apple and Google have set a very high bar for performance. We were tasked to create a custom keyboard, and it had to have a similar user interface and performance. This was not an easy task to complete given the time and financial restrictions.
User experience design
Functional prototypes and lean UX
Our mobile app developers produced several versions of prototypes. These were put to the test on the intended audience using the lean UX methodology. This was carried out in order to collect feedback and enhance the app's user experience design. We created an iOS feasibility prototype after receiving favourable feedback from our test groups. Then, it was tested and approved by the different stakeholders, whose comments were incorporated into the prototypes. This eventually served as the foundation for our subsequent round of iOS and Android mobile app development.
Mobile app development for iOS & Android devices
Our preferred framework for building mobile apps is React Native. However, in this case we needed access to the lower level APIs and the ability to build app extensions. Because of this we had to fully commit to native app development across iOS and Android smartphones. This was not an issue for our expert team of mobile app developers. They have been using native SDKs since the initial releases of iOS and Android.
The ExpressMS keyboard app is available to download on mobile devices in Germany, Austria and Italy. ExpressMS will be more widely available in other European countries during 2022-23. To find out more visit Janssen expressMS.
