Drug-Free Sports App

Executive Summary

Our clients, a doping prevention entity in sports, had an existing iPhone app built on the native platform using Objective C to promote participation in sports free from the use of prohibited substances intended to artificially enhance performance. The app allowed users to search in the drugs database and find useful information about a medication. Users could filter search results in various categories, such as “allowed,” “prohibited,” “prohibited in certain sports,” etc. Our clients wanted to convert their existing iPhone app to BlackBerry to expand its reach. With the HTML5 local storage we were able to eliminate the need of building a complex Java application with local database. The app was developed using BlackBerry WebWorks and creates the local store on first installation. If the device is online, the modified data is fetched from a feed and the local storage is updated.  Sports News is a bonus feature of the app.
