Note: Polocode was developed as a working MVP solution only. Neither the fully fledged Polocode app that is now live on the various app stores nor the current website were developed by Ansta.

The Problem

Navigating by an address or postcode sometimes isn't precise enough and using latitude and longitude can often just be confusing. Whether you're an individual trying to find a friend's house or holiday destination, a delivery company trying to track down a customer in a remote location, or a takeaway wanting to deliver a customer's food still hot, you would surely benefit from an easier way of finding someone's location.

This was the problem and the brief was to create a solution in the form of an app, availabe for both iOS and Android.

The Solution

A proof of concept or MVP (Minimium Viable Product) App was created so our client could test the market.

Polocode was born and is an app for Android and iOS that makes it easier to get around. 

Polocode works by pinpointing your location and allowing you to save that marker with your own unique identifier. Then simply give your Polocode to someone else and help them track you down quick and easily. You can also add a picture of the location to your Polocode to make it even easier!

Polocode has great potential and would be perfectly suited for the courier industry, holiday rentals and more. It's free to download and available on all good Android and iOS devices.

Technical Development

Polocode was developed for Android and iOS using React Native, an app development tool developed by Facebook.

With React Native, you don't build a “mobile web app”, an “HTML5 app”, or a “hybrid app”. You build a real mobile app that's indistinguishable from an app built using Objective-C or Java. React Native uses the same fundamental UI building blocks as regular iOS and Android apps. You just put those building blocks together using JavaScript and React.

This allowed us to develop the app just once and deploy to both major mobile operating systems. Whilst there are various compenents and functions that are specific to one or the other, the vast majority of development is done just once and results in native applications for both systems that look and function almost identically.
