Business challenge

When ex-Googler Nayana Samaranayaka had an idea for a unique photo sharing app he approached Calcey to transform his vision into reality. Calcey had to develop an iOS app and deliver it quickly, for a planned beta launch at Tech Crunch Disrupt in San Francisco, but at the same time provide flexibility to incorporate feedback from a group of test users.


The app enables users to create photo albums collaboratively with their friends. Users can add life to their albums and transform them into ‘stories’ by using nifty features within the app to add text, create videos etc. Stories can then be shared via social media networks or privately within a groups of friends. In keeping with the app’s highly visual theme, users can apply different skins to the app, changing its color palate to suit their mood.
