When we first started shaping Metric we hit the ground running by leveraging their existing iOS SDK. A couple of weeks into development one of our prototypes was shown internally. The reaction was very positive and we were asked when we could have a version of the prototype that used real data. When we told them that the prototype was already using real data, they were astounded. Using real data throughout the prototyping stage helped us quickly iterate over new features with confidence since we knew how our changes would work for a real users.
Emma makes an extremely high quality product and we wanted to build a mobile app that matched that standard of quality. One way we accomplished this was by incorporating several custom animated elements throughout the app (with the help of a lot of math and drawing code). The extra polish gained from animating the loading indicators and mailing graphs really brought Emma’s personality to Metric.
Material Design on Android
When it was time to build the Android version of Metric, LunarLincoln worked closely with Emma to make the app feel at home on Android. Using the latest material design guidelines we created an Android app that stands out from the pack. We even worked extra hard to implement the new material design interface on devices with older versions of Android so that Emma customers could experience the latest in UI without having to upgrade their devices.
