Sumac designed and developed an iphone app based on our popular
online predictions game PredictorPro. The game allows groups of
friends to create leagues and predict on the English Premier League
matches against one another and allows them to chat in the app via
the Banter feature.
We specifically designed the app to be visually appealing,
intuitive and simple to use so that users with no previous
experience of the game would have no trouble using it.
The key for us when developing the Predictor Pro app was to make
sure the user experience of the game was easy & good. This
meant making sure the design fitted the young male audience (we
went with a grey bullet metal and grass look), that the user
interface used best of breed functionality (it is mostly based on
the default iphone functionality meaning if you know how to use an
iphone you can use our app) and the database communications
in the background were fast and responsive to keep the user
interaction speed up at the required levels (a slow interaction
speed means a user will wait too long while data loads). We
believe we have achieved these and we are continually improving the
app through the addition of new features over the coming
