A CakePHP Based Peer-To-Peer Dog Walking App
The client came to us with a requirement of developing an iOS app for dog enthusiasts that would help users to track their pups using GPS tracking.
We have developed this iOS app using SendGrid API, CakePHP as well as few web services and geared it with various functionalities as discussed below:
Register: After downloading Trottr, users can create a profile that includes their address and their dog's information. Once registered, they can find a walker or peer of their choice.
Find: Users can browse local walker profiles and set up a free Meet and Greet to make sure their dog and their walker friend are the perfect pair. Trottr walkers have been thoroughly vetted, passed background checks and carry insurance. They must also maintain a 4.5 star user rating or higher to stay on the app.
Schedule: Users can choose between 15, 30, 45 and 60 minute walks starting at just $15. Their walker's availability is shown in green. Simply drag and drop a walk to a time of your choosing. The list view allows them to see their scheduled walks.
Chat: Trottr allows you to stay in contact with your dog walker 24x7, so you can check in to see how your dog is doing while they're away, touch base about any special requirements their dog has, or ask any questions you may have.
Pay: All Trottr walks use GPS tracking, allowing you to follow your pup's path. Every invoice includes a map of the walk, a picture from the journey, even the number of times their dog relieved himself.
Later, client asked us to do some modifications in the existing app. We worked on his requirements and made the changes accordingly. We added drag & drop facility in Calendar in this application.
