SolutionsZazmic’s approach to implementing BlySpot
We built BlySpot using GraphQL, a powerful data query language, and RxSwift, a modern tool for iOS development of easily manageable and readable apps
We installed Facebook SDK on the app to integrate BlySpot with Facebook and let users log in, share and interact through the platform.
For the app users’ convenience, we enabled incoming messages that notify them every time their post is liked, shared or commented on.
We got BlySpot integrated with Google Maps, Google Places and Google Directions to enable displaying maps, searching places and drawing routes without leaving the app.
