Project Challenges

We had to face many challenges while developing the application. We tried many designs which were not user friendly and got rejected by the client. While developing the app we had to choose a perfect theme that suits our project, which is related to fitness. We had to create an application whose design suits the theme of fitness and it does not have any issues like inefficient data protection. Amidst these challenges, there is a need for a solution that would bring in a positive technical revolution in the fitness industry.

User Interface Design

The design guidelines were set with the intent to make the use of the application easy for beginners. Our UI Design standard was developed around the fitness industry. So, it was very important for us to show them the real and true things. So, they could not affect their fitness. We had started with mock-ups of designs, which we showed our client to get their approval. After their final approval of the design, we started our final coding for the application.
