Challenges & Solutions
The client asked us for the as much as customization possible post development of the app, it was a challenge for us to provide all images from server since it depends on the speed of the user’s Internet to download heavy images from server before they can actually see the UI. Image caching was important at the highest level so that user’s experience with the app remains good, at the same time we have to figure out a way to not to exhaust disk space of device.
