The Challenges & Solutions

  1. Near Field Communication is relatively a newer technology. We ran into many bottlenecks while trying to integrate the functionality into the app.
  2. One of the principle functionalities of the app included, scanning, and reading NFC tags. Surprisingly, Android SDK’s native API for reading the NFC tag came to the rescue and we could not only enable it but also could make it a lot faster
  3. For fintech apps, integrating payment gateway has always been the most basic yet challenging part. After all, people will trust the app with their money
  4. There was no point of developing an fintech apps if payment gateway Integration is absent. We integrated payment gateway using third party API’s for secure transaction and to enable wallet.
