Project Description

Project Description

EpicGem is a digital platform that allows users to create and distribute electronic story albums (called “Gems”). Individual Gems consist of a series of pages, each containing a combination of textual, visual, and audio information. The content and format of which will be controlled by the Gem’s creator/author using the EpicGem platform. We developed end to end platform for EpicGem, which consists of a desktop and a tablet app to easily create and share electronic stories. It can be personalized with your words, voice and photos. EpicGem makes it easy for others – both young and old – to experience your stories in your own words.

Challenges & Solutions

1. Easy to Create Stories: EpicGem stories are created by elderly grandparents, so it was very important to design application in such a way that any user can understand and use the desktop/tablet application with effortlessly.

2. Multiple UI Components: Applications has many different UI components within a screen, and managing all components on hundreds of different android handsets was a big challenge.

3. Grab Attention: Primary user of the EpicGem application are kids, so it was very important to show stories digitally in a very attractive manner.

4.Unsupported Libraries: Unavailability of supported libraries like TextEditor & CurlPage animation on React Native.

1. We designed the UI components of the screens based on ratios, and percentages, which helped us give identical experience to the tablet users irrespective of the model and device type.

2. We created Native bridges for Android & iOS separately to support TextEditor and CurlPage animation libraries.

3. The application allows users to create stories using audio narration, videos and pictures to make it more lively and engaging.
