The world is drowning in photos - today life is all about taking pictures of every single step you do. But quantity doesn’t improve quality - people make photos of what they are eating, reading, watching, which results in treating the photography as an everyday thing, not as art. Fortunately still there are enthusiasts who try to express themselves through the pictures and provide diverse mindset in the society. For such admirers impeccable shot is a must, and PolarPro app helps with that.
PolarPro team is a group of perfect-picture-seeking photographers. They explore, and travel, and capture all the beauty they see. And they want to help others to do the same. So they decided to create an app that helps to choose the most optimal filter for the camera or drone to capture the image in the way the user expects it to be.
The goal was to create a cross-platform app (which means it will work both on Android and iOS devices) that will be a handy tool for photographers and videographers. We aimed to create a tool to provide a seamless process of setting up the camera and capturing the shot, that would become a must-have in every photographer’s arsenal. So we determined three main features of the app we want to achieve:
The app has a few narrowly focused functions to help users customize filters for a specific situation with specific conditions to take the picture they want. The user may want to take a photo of the fast-moving object, or capture sea splashes with every drop sparkling in the sun, or whatever else. The perfect camera that will take flawless shots hasn’t yet been invented, so the photographer must use filters and special settings to achieve a beautiful picture. PolarPro app helps the user to choose the most suitable filter, provides settings for the camera and choose the location and time for the shot.
The app has a few technological aspects that were rather difficult and time-consuming to implement, among which are showing weather forecast and countdown to golden hour, based on user’s location. But the most challenging was making an app cross-platform to reach as many people as possible and deliver the highest quality at the same time.
It was easy to achieve mutual understanding because guys knew exactly what they want and shared with us precisely their expectations. Thanks to close cooperation and clear understanding of what future product must do and how it must work we managed to create an app where every single element has its function and helps the user to achieve their goals.
