Key challenges

Adapt Firebase on front-end and back-end to implement reactive UI. Build pixel-perfect, highly customized, smooth UI. User experience was the center of Staance products. This required intensive app profiling, caching, achieving 60FPS scrolling in an environment of heavy UI with core graphics. As it was UI-heavy, the app required deep skills for background queues & tasks to have a smooth UI in the lower-end phones as well. Allow users to compose lists even when they’re offline. Make the entire offline /online sync of user’s data extremely seamless. Having deep knowledge of core graphics for custom animation widgets. Manage and scale the engineering team at a fast pace to fit the need.
