One of our customers needed an Android based application to serve as a mobile front-end for their global container shipment track-and-trace service. Executive Engineering’s Tim Koene has developed this mobile application for Android version 2.0 and upwards. The total project timeframe was 2 months from draft to delivery.
A key part of this project was the merging of the existing iPhone-based mobile platform functionality towards the Android ecosystem. The look and feel of the iPhone application which was already familiar to the user-base should be kept intact as much as possible. However, Android user-interface design is different from iPhone design. In the end, Tim managed to design a user interface which used the Android design rules and sensibilities while maintaining the look, feel, format and function of the original.
