MOKO Social Media hired Union NY DC to design and develop customizable mobile applications for the iOS and Android platforms using React Native, powered by a Ruby on Rails web CMS. The mobile application serves as a hub for all things related to college recreation including intramural schedules, campus alerts and facility information. The supporting web-based CMS allows college administrators to change nearly every aspect of the app, from background imagery, home-screen layout and logo to the creation of custom schedule widgets. The app also acts as a support portal for students and provides news about upcoming campus events.
We also made use of CodePush, a very useful technology from Microsoft which enables on-the-fly app updates in React Native. This service is great for bug fixes or small improvements. Larger version updates should still be submitted through Google Play and the App Store.
