Challenges

Managing Location update in background

We had to change the continuous location update to significant location update.

 

Integrate sturdy go premium functionality

Our challenge was to rectify the completion of 30 days subscription and withdraw certain functionalities from the user’s account on that very specific day.

 

Show Pending check-in

We had to show Pending Check-in when the user’s specific check-in location was far from 0.5 mile radius from his current location.

 

Merge Single me out Feature

Integrating Single me out feature that would help users to find other singles at a very specific point/location.

Solutions

Previously we ran continuous location update in background. But apple did not accept the application saying that the application’s scenario does not require continuous location update. Hence, we changed continuously location update to significant location update method. In significant location update, the update occurs when there is significant location change occurring in user’s current location, for instance user moved 100 meter or 500 meter.

 

The application offers one month free subscription plan for new registered users. They can use complete feature functionalities upto one month. After that, users are required to purchase the premium plan using In app purchase. In order to know that the user has completed a month of free subscription plan and to further restrict the user from using certain advance features, we eventually used web service to track the user details. On activation of the app from the user end, we would check the user’s subscription details using web service and decide when to disable certain app functionality.

 

Pending check-in was to be enabled when the user would check-in to specific location which is far from 0.5 mile radius of user’s current location. This particular check-in shows up as pending check-in. However, this pending check-in will become active automatically when user enters in the 0.5 mile radius of that check-in location. To enable the same, we used significant location change functionality and we tracked user when some significant change would occur in user’s location.

 

Single me out functionality is for premium users. To integrate this feature, we enabled users to set or give out specific points when he/she check-in some location. For instance, a user check-in at specific location then he/she can set single me out position like- at the pool, at the door, at the swimming pool, at the garden, and so on. This would let the other premium users see that there is someone single present at this very specific point in that check-in. This feature makes it even more easy to find singles around.
