Client challenge

Creating an Android Version of a Popular iOS App

When PicPlayPost connected with ThinkApps, they had the #1 paid app in the iOS app store. The company had a great engineering team on staff but their experience was primarily with iOS. So when it came to building the Android version, PicPlayPost needed a development partner.

Overcoming Android Fragmentation

PicPlayPost needed to decode video natively on a device vs. decoding video on a server, which created a number of technical challenges. As the lead engineer on the project explained, "Take Qualcomm for example. Qualcomm hardware decoders produce decoded frames in a format which is not described anywhere.” The ThinkApps development team was able to solve this challenge and create an Android version that worked across all devices while maintaining a 4-star rating.
