Business Situation

The client had a BlackBerry PlayBook horoscope application and the previous vendor was trying to deploy the same code for BlackBerry Torch. It was rejected by BlackBerry creating a disaster for the client. The client needed to get out of this situation. They also wanted to launch their popular and feature-rich web application on all popular mobile platforms, e.g. iOS, Android, Windows.

Solution Details

To start with, Mindfire created the first mobile application using BlackBerry WebWorks and integrated with BlackBerry Messenger.

For the second application, after analyzing the client’s other existing applications, business needs, and popular cross‐platform mobile development frameworks, PhoneGap was selected for its power and versatility. Our PhoneGap experts created the required feature-rich smart‐phone applications which could be seamlessly deployed across multiple popular mobile platforms as needed by our client, e.g. iPhone, Android, Windows Phone Mango, etc.


The basic requirement of our client was to create mobile apps targeting multiple popular mobile platforms with all the features of their popular website without losing out on quality and speed.
