Shoppers often have to carry a lot of loyalty cards with them whenever they go shopping. Loyalty Shopper App by Peerbits stores all your loyalty cards and subscriptions in electronic form, and saves you from the hassle of carrying tens of loyalty cards in your pocket. The app for Android Wear gives you access to all your loyalty cards, rewards cards and other subscriptions at a twist of wrist.

The Challenges & Solutions

  • Developing apps for watches is more complicated than developing for Phones and Tablets. The biggest challenge we faced was displaying high resolution images (of stored loyalty cards) and barcodes of membership ID on the watch’s face. Watches are limited by their small screen size (often less than 2 inches) and memory size.
  • The watch had to go online every time it had to display a barcode, which was time consuming.
  • As high-resolution images failed to load on the watch’s application due to memory constrains, our developers decided to go with Thumbnail images as they are light in weight and followed the process of passing image in assets as per Android standard.
  • To reduce the time the watch needed to go online & generate barcode, we inserted a piece of code that displays barcodes offline.

Peerbits has been very good at getting the relevant skills on board in a short period of time
