Mobile app Development

Active 10 | Public Health England

Walking app designed to track your everyday walks and show you how to increase your intensity to benefit your health. Public Health England's aim was to educate users on how to include exercise into their daily routines through brisk walking.

Our developers were presented with the challenge of using a combination of the phone’s activity and GPS sensors to track a user’s everyday walks.

Working within the strict app store review process, we developed algorithms to capture and process various sensor data. The data was processed on the fly, and presented simply and clearly to the user in the form of rewards and achievements.

Working with the University of Sheffield, we developed the mobile app and server architecture for scalability and security, in line with GDS guidelines. We continued to support the growth to half a million users.
