1 The Client

AudiobookNow is a company headquartered in Northern Virginia. Company was started by the founders of BookLender.com to enter into the audiobook space.

2 The Challenge

Client had a very good web platform for its customers to download audiobooks and listen to them. Client had built mobile apps in 2010 using cross platform framework. The mobile apps built using titanium were performing poorly and lots of their customers were leaving them due to the poor design and performance of the apps. Users could not even perform several key functions like ability to speed up the audiobooks. There were issues with the Bluetooth headphones and phone audio players. Client reached out to Simpalm in 2012 to build the apps using latest native app approach to improve the performance.

Client Testimonials.

Simpalm was able to reproduce our apps for native Android and iOS, which was a breakthrough in many ways. It made the apps work more efficiently, and it gave us a codebase, which could be picked up by a different developer easily. They did a phenomenal job of translating our existing apps into their respective native versions. Simpalm worked on a fixed-cost basis, which was ideal from our standpoint. We knew that they would finish the job without any cost fluctuations. We are extremely happy with the service and deliverables provided by Simpalm. They deliver wonderful mobile applications on tight timelines for very competitive pricing. Simpalm is highly recommended to others.
