TopCity Card - Chose your city

About the app

The TopCity Card mobile application is part of an initiative by the Clujul Văzut Altfel Foundation (“Cluj Seen Differently Foundation”) to boost Romanian tourism country-wide. There’s an entire system built around this initiative: besides the iOS and Android mobile apps built by tapptitude, there is a web platform and a physical discount card as well.

With this app, the users can access all the deals surrounding them around town. Beacons installed in lots of locations make discovering the best deals even more efficient. The users receive push notifications when they are in or around those locations. Bars, restaurants, museums, spas and other tourist attractions – if there’s a deal, the user will know about it. The deal can be accessed quickly from within the app.

Challenge

The most challenging part of building this app was definitely the part where we had to integrate it with the beacon technology. We had to work with a few beacon providers and make sure that we can properly integrate our system with their SDKs. At the end of the day, the beacons had to work with great accuracy for the best user experience within the app.

Besides this, the integration of the location APIs should not interfere in any way with the entire flow accessing the content of the app. The user flow had to be as simple as possible, whilst still useful to the end user.

Solutions

The TopCity Card mobile app is an efficient discovery tool, right at our fingertips. It’s a curation of the best deals in town, organized neatly in a nice and clean UI, enabling quick discovery of new and interesting places. There’s nothing interrupting the user experience; except maybe, a new deal.

Also, we had to make sure the functionality of the app would not be influenced by an internet connection. We’re not all online 24/7; that should not prohibit us from having a great time in our own city or country.
