App development was challenging and new for us. I had a friend who was able to do some coding and he suggested using CodeMash as a backend. I tried CodeMash and very quickly saw that I can start to collaborate on the project without knowing how to code. CodeMash helped us to accelerate application development by streamlining onboarding and automating workflows, with features including content translation to various languages, sending emails, and push notifications. The best thing I have a clear vision of what’s happening with my application: see new members which are coming to app, see how emails and push notifications are delivered to the end-user.

Challenge

Provide the best experience app to different countries

Making an app across the globe can be challenging. You must take into account where your users are and how seamlessly you can provide the content. The delivery latency is important, so your data and images should be optimized and delivered using the best technologies out there. 

The app can be consumed from the USA, but if your server is in Europe, that can put you into trouble and you can end up with a lagging application. 

Also, you need to think about localization. Each user who downloads your app should receive a welcome email in the right language. As an engaging tool push notifications are the best choice so far, but receiving them in bad time can put some bad user experience and frustrate users.

“Seamless content translation and sending push notifications with respect to the time zone of the user was one of our priorities. ”

The Solution

Shorter distance means your files, images and documents loads faster

CodeMash uses a content delivery network (a.k.a CDN) to provide high availability and performance by distributing the service spatially relative to end-users. Regarding your plan, you can choose where you forest your data and where files will be placed. 

Happy Tummy app heavily uses good quality images. That’s one of the selling points that is crucial for this app. We allow uploading real size images without chasing app administrators to do some corrections upfront. Code functions to the rescue. By including a small pre-built code function, it allows you to optimize your image and serve it to the users. All the tedious work like dynamic image optimization, CDN, security and privacy is done by CodeMash.  

“Before you are starting any web, mobile, or even TV app you need to put into consideration many things you even don’t know them upfront. We work on such projects for more than a decade and we put best practices to the CodeMash. That’s how we ended up with such modular and ready to use solution”

“I engage to do React Native development lately and CodeMash provided me all the tools that are necessary to build applications rapidly. All the boilerplate that comes from the backend side was covered by CodeMash, so I focused more on what I truly love and I’m engaged with.”
