Hoval App

I worked on an App for Hoval, the purpose of this was to allow sales reps to carry around the Hoval Catalogue on their iPads.

The interesting technical challenge here was that it had to work offline, while being easily updatable through an online interface.

So, I built a Laravel based REST API which admins have access to update and control. The app when it has WIFI checks this API for any changes or updates to the items. It then pulls them down onto the mobile device and stores them in an SQLite database.

It began as completely an internal tool, but later it was decided to launch on the public app store so potential customers could browse through at their own leisure.


Tech Used:

  • Laravel
  • Titanium Studio
  • SQLite
