Summary

Summary

Our customer wanted to develop the first-ever sound-based messenger in the world. They needed to launch both iOS and Android applications, which would allow users to exchange messages accompanied by hilarious sounds. These Emoji sounds play automatically when a user sends or receives a message.

The DB Best application development team delivered a bespoke solution that allows users to leverage the standard set of sounds, as well as add new sounds by themselves. We utilized the XMPP ejabberd server to deploy the chat module for the Emojitones application. We also used the Azure Blob to store data objects. Finally, we took advantage of Angular 6 to develop the admin panel.

Challenges

Challenges

The chat module is the heart of the Emojitones application. Our software architects had to consider the expected high load of the application server in order to leverage the best possible solution for the chat module.

In addition to that, we needed to find a perfect solution for storing sound emojis and their instant delivery. No one wants to wait for the sounds to play, so, the speed of content delivery for Emojitones application is vital.

The customer also wanted to implement a successful business model behind this application. Our business analysts helped the customer select the optimal monetization option. For this kind of application, it’s possible to opt for releasing a paid version of the app. However, to get off to a flying start you should consider releasing both free and paid versions for each platforms is ideal. The other monetized approach allows for earning money with in-app purchases.

Solutions

Solutions

DB Best developers know nearly everything about building powerful messengers and embedding chat solutions into various applications. That’s why we decided to go with a more complex ejabberd server solution for the Emojitones application rather than a simple Openfire chat solution. The XMPP ejabberd server proved to be the best possible choice for specialized chat applications with a heavy messaging load.

We used an Azure Blob to store data objects and the AZS Client framework to deliver the content instantly to millions of application users.

The Emojitones application remains free of charge for all users. However, the users could buy emoji packs with cool new sounds. Alternatively, they could be rewarded with these emoji packs for free after inviting new users into the application. This allows for both growing profit as well as for scaling the users base.

Let’s take a closer look at the application’s key features.

The chat module remains the core of the Emojitones app. With a simple registration process, users can start exchanging their sound emojis with friends in just a few taps. They can create group chats, share files, or even create their own sound emojis in addition to the over 700 built-in sound emojis, located in various themed galleries.

The users can discover their friends via phone number, instantly see, who is using the app and who is online at the moment. In addition to that, we have provided the users with a Facebook integration opportunity.
