Native Mobile App for Improving Daily Life Through Positive Affirmations

Business Overview

Business Overview

Think Up is a leading solution that empowers users with affirmations and allows them to create a program for self-development. It helps embed a positive mindset into everyday life using affirmations based on professional psychologists’ recommendations.

The client had native Android and iOS applications but the existing versions of the apps couldn’t handle the growing number of users nor cover the client’s business needs for rapid performance.

The scope for NIX included the following:

  • Icon

    Audit the existing app infrastructure and suggest ways for enhancements and ensuring stability

  • Icon

    Refactor Android and iOS apps to make them more scalable and ready to support a growing number of users

  • Icon

    Extend functionality of both mobile applications to increase retention


Up-to-date architecture and increased scalability

The NIX team analyzed the legacy system, forecast what may cause problems for the client in the future, and eliminated pitfalls that may appear.

We performed complete refactoring and provided continuous integration for both Android and iOS applications to extend functionality smoothly. For the iOS app, Swift programming language was chosen to ensure robust security and more up-to-date architecture than Objective-C. As for the Java-based Android app, the team reinforced the initial infrastructure and increased scalability for future functionality.

We also migrated the database with all media components to the cloud to reduce the application size and enhance performance of both mobile apps.
