Travltalk Product Development Series: Application launch

React Native Rebuild and Live User Testing

With the UI designed with React Native in mind and a prototype for reference the task of rebuilding the Travltalk application was relatively straight forward.

After consultation with several React Native agencies, we selected a London based developer, Henry Kirkness to build the application for £30,000 + VAT.

The redevelopment of Travltalk in React Native was scoped to be done in 8 weeks. With such a tight development timeframe, it has been imperative that we test our application in real time, and ensure it is bug free as we go.

Numerous male and female Millennials have been consulted on design choices and the evolving UX to ensure we address any feedback we can as we go.

Future Research and Development

Travltalk was accepted to the Apple and Google Play stores on June 25th, 2018, and our product is now live to a public audience.

We currently use MixPanel and Google Analytics to determine user behaviour and identify and patterns or evidence of user drop off.

In addition, our Travltalk Ambassadors will run user feedback sessions in hostels to determine any feature additions we may need to prioritise based on popularity.
