Sports Scouting App for iPhone - Scout Peek

Client: Entrepreneur located New Jersey.

Problem: Client came to Blue Whale with an idea to develop an app that connected athletes with sports scouts. The idea was very bare bones and early stage start up - so early that there was no branding, name, identity, design or requirements specifications.

Solution: Like many entrepreneurs and start ups that come to Blue Whale with just an idea, the first step is to go through a definition and discovery phase that documents all of the "must have" features, giving each feature a priority. Next, a branding and identity was established along with assisting Client with choosing a name that would not only define the app, but would work well for ASO (app store optimization). From there, wire framing began followed by design and development. Since Scout Peek includes user generated content such as videos and commenting, a web based back office was built out. Users of the app can 'flag' a comment or video as inappropriate. The client can then login to the back office and remove this content if needed. This is an important feature as it is required by Apple.

Features: Scout Peek allows users to register as either an Athlete or a Scout. A user can register by using email and password or via single sign-on with Facebook. Browse for athletes by sport, gender, position or location to watch videos. As registered Athlete, upload a video to your profile and get push notifications when other users comment or like that video.

Tools Used: Native app coding in Objective-C, Ruby on Rails back end on Amazon Web Services, Parse for push notifications, Crashalytics for crash reporting and Jira for bug tracking.

Total Development Time: 12 weeks from start of requirements definition to final submission to Apple for approval.
