CelebraTube was conceived with the idea of bringing common audience closer to their Hollywood ideals. A one of a kind idea, CelebraTube is a platform for those admirers who dream of the opportunity to be able to interact with their favorite celebrities from the Hollywood film, music and sports industry.
This platform allows admirers to send videos to their favorite celebrities and request personalized videos from them. The idea is to bridge the gap between celebrities and their fans on virtual space through this exceptional medium.
The client’s idea was to develop the mobile application for both iOS and Android, to enable more and more users to use the platform.
They demanded a solution that had to be able to promptly view current data UI and confirm the flow for UE data input/output request. Application had to be able to pass all flight tests and successful submission to Google Play & Apple Store for downloads.
They wanted the application to feature live streaming and notifications functionality as well that facilitated real-time information to be generated and exchanged between users.
The client needed a live streaming functionality using Vimeo in a limited budget. After a qualitative and quantitative analysis of Vimeo and Firekast, a seamless integration of Firekast was accomplished. A notification functionality was added that ensures real-time information is sent to users regarding their product’s status.
Also, the application was developed for 3 types of users: the celebrities that feature on the application, their fans and the agent that manages all the celebrity accounts. A system was developed where a list of 10 top popular celebrities was updated based on the search queries of users.
Furthermore, the complete UI was given a graphic overhaul as per the new update for iOS 13 which was a challenging task as the product was made in terms with the versions running then.
Some of the key product features that were implemented are:
Search Functionality : Fans can search for their favorite celebrity from film, music and sports industry which will ultimately increase their celebrity’s position in the top 10 leaders chart
Login/Sign Up functionality : The fans can register with the application and get access for their own account
