IOS is the dominant platform in the marketplace with over 1 million apps available for its devices.

We’ve been with Apple from the beginning, developing beautiful apps for the last 6 years.

Over 20,000 apps hit the Apple App store every month. That’s an average of 641 new apps in the App Store per day. To get your app to stand out from the crowd you need to make sure it’s different.

Each platform has its own language, and we are fluent in them all. Our approach involves ‘going native’ - essentially coding each app in its own language. Doing this creates better and more secure code, resulting in better and more secure apps.

For many people, Apple is the main platform. Our team have years of experience working with Apple devices to create apps that make a difference.

We love Android and its become the market leader in device activation.

Coding for Android takes time, patience and commitment and demands a different set of skills from developing for Apple. At MyOxygen we have recognised Android experts and treat this developing technology with the respect it deserves.

Our apps are natively coded, reflecting the differences of Android - and it's strengths.

Great coding means great apps and we love to build them.

Windows Phone from Microsoft had a slow start but its gaining market share in emerging markets and It departments keen on security.

Creating great apps begins in the planning, and working with Windows, we plan a lot. Windows Mobile might be relatively new, but with our native approach every app gets the respect it deserves.

For most of us, Microsoft is familiar territory and developing for it follows a familiar pattern. We love working with Microsoft and our team is comfortable and experienced at getting the best out of this new platform.

We still develop for Blackberry, but the platform has faced a steep decline due to increased competition from other platforms.

As technical experts our role is to provide solutions to problems. Whilst Blackberry may not be as popular as it once was, our motto is: if you want it, we can build it.

With a smaller screen size, but the benefit of a full size keyboard, developing functional apps for Blackberry is a challenge that we relish.

Shashank, our Blackberry expert, has developed a number of apps that use the strengths of the Blackberry to it's full advantage.

Appraise product & social audit app

Appraise

Intro

MyOxygen has developed Appraise in-house and is one of our flagship products. Appraise enables organisations to carry out audits of their shops or retail locations electronically, communicating directly with team members as well as seeing social activity surrounding their organisation.

Working from a visually exciting and easy to navigate interface, Appraise is changing the way retailers work.

How it works

If a retailer signs up to Appraise they are instantly able to design and deliver their own personalised retail audits. Users create their own audits using a web interface which then pushes this audit out to all app users within the organisation ensuring that they always have the correct, up to date questions to be answered during their audits.

Once an auditor has completed their audit they can send it back to the server for instant access and analysis within the organisation.

Key features

  • Ensure all auditors have the latest audit questionnaire.
  • Begin analysing completed audits as soon as they’re completed.
  • Collect video and photographic evidence to back up the audit.
  • View your organisation’s locations on the map and see their recent audit performance.
  • Whatever you want! Talk to us about any extra features your organisation could benefit from and we can incorporate them to make your jobs easier!

Appraise has simple and instantaneous analysis tools built in, allowing retailers and auditors to see how they are performing - at any stage of the process.

Intro

The best apps fulfill a purpose and provide a solution. When we needed a way to display our work, we naturally thought mobile. We love this product so much, we use it ourselves.

The purpose of the app is to provide an easy to navigate and visually appealing display of your work that can easily be shared with existing and potential customers across the world.

How it works

Users are able to populate the app with information on various products from a webpage. The content is then uploaded and displayed within the app, and can - with the push of a button - be sent out to all users of the app, so they’re always up to date with your latest products and information.

Key features

  • View up to date information, images and videos of your latest products/items

What the client said

The ACH Assist app has given us a competitive advantage and allowed us to strengthen the relationship with our dealerships as well as offering an invaluable tool for drivers.

Miles Savoury

Director
Accident Claims Handlers Ltd

ACH Assist

Intro

ACH Assist provides premium accident cover for some of the UK’s biggest vehicle dealerships, including Mercedes and BMW.

Background

ACH worked with MyOxygen to develop a detailed and precise creative brief, to deliver the following:

  • Create a bespoke interface, providing a clear and intuitive means for customers to record details of any accidents.
  • Help customers record all details if they have an accident, including precise location.
  • Interact and populate already existing proprietary systems.
  • Create a continued dialogue with customers, with the app continuing to add value.

Making it happen

MyOxygen created apps on both IOS and Android that lets drivers immediately record details of an accident, including geo-locating their position. The app’s genuinely innovative interface provides a simple and uncluttered way for users to submit a claim simply – essential for users who may be using the app very soon after a distressing crash.

Using the phone’s camera function, customers can support their claim with photos, adding, storing and submitting photos of the damage to CAN’s claims database.

Claims can also be retrieved from the cloud-based system, allowing customers to view and edit if necessary, providing peace of mind for users.

The system improves the relationship between the customer and dealership, providing a significant premium to users. The app notifies their dealership immediately of an accident, enabling the dealership to provide support for the customer.

MyOxygen developed bespoke and personalised apps for each dealership, at a reduced cost. The app supports an ongoing relationship between dealer and customer, with push notifications informing customers of important dates like MOTs, insurance renewals, servicing and potential offers they may find interesting.

Outcome

The unique and targeted app has proved an incredible success not only amongst customers, but also amongst dealerships. Customers feel more secure and supported, particularly when dealing with the stressful and upsetting outcome of an accident.

The app has enabled ACH Assist to secure more dealerships under its premium vehicle insurance programme. It has also seen an increase in customer retention and an increase in additional sales, exceeding all initial projections.

What the client said

“The ACH Assist app has given us a competitive advantage and allowed us to strengthen the relationship with our dealerships as well as offering an invaluable tool for drivers.”

RBTE 2014 Expo App

Background

The Retail Business Technology Expo is one of the largest retail technology events in Europe. The annual event brings together delegates from the hospitality and leisure industries alongside retailers who are interested in the newest technologies and how they can benefit their business.

Taking place at London’s massive Earl’s Court, the organisers of the show, Legend Exhibition  & Essential Retail, commissioned MyOxygen to build them a series of IOS, Android and Windows Mobile apps to help the 9,000 delegates and 1,000 exhibitors get the most out of their time at the Expo.

Brief

Legend Exhibition & Essential Retail wanted to provide the visitors to the Expo with an easy-to-use series of apps that:

  • Included comprehensive listings and information to help delegates to get the most out of their time at the Expo.
  • Provided interactive and engaging maps of the event.
  • Included information and content from all exhibitors.
  • Utilised new technologies like iBeacon and push-messaging to engage users.
  • Were distributed free prior to and during the event across all popular mobile platforms.
  • Positioned Legend Exhibition & Essential Retail at the forefront of retail technology.

Making it happen

MyOxygen met with representatives from Legend Exhibition & Essential Retail to understand the audience for the show and the requirements they had for the app.

Working closely with the client, our development team created a multi-platform solution that delegates could download prior to the event in their chosen platform. Users were able to not only browse the interactive event catalogue but could ‘favourite’ specific exhibitors or seminars. The app powered engagement, with full contact details of exhibitors available before, during and after the event.

The system was powered by a back-end content management system that enabled changes and amendments to the programme without users having to download the app again.

The system included many exciting features, including accessing the iBeacon feature in the iphone version which could be used to trigger trigger welcoming messages to users when they enter the expo or come near to certain stands. In addition, push notifications were enabled on all platforms, enabling the organisers to communicate directly with delegates.

Outcome

MyOxygen delivered the app across all platforms within a tight 12-week deadline and within budget.

The app itself proved an incredible success, with a substantial number of downloads. User feedback throughout the event was positive and the client, Legend Exhibition  & Essential Retail, full of praise for our work.

The app proved to be an essential tool for anyone planning a visit to the Expo.

Our expectations were exceeded when MyOxygen delivered the RBTE 2014 exhibition app. Our show is the biggest retail event in Europe and the app reflects the high profile nature of our exhibitors.

CardEaseiPad payment terminal

Intro

CreditCall is one of the world’s leading providers of unattended payment services, enabling secure transactions in vending machines, car parks and for other ‘unattended’ services.

CreditCall also develops and certifies EMV Kernel software for Chip & PIN terminals deployed worldwide. Their kernels are used in both contact and contact-less environments across card readers, POS, ATMs, petrol pumps, kiosks, ticketing terminals, smartphones and tablets.

After dipping a toe in the digital world, CreditCall contacted MyOxygen to develop a secure and robust iPad application to process card payments.

Background

CreditCall and MyOxygen worked closely together in developing a system that fulfilled their exacting requirements. The app needed to:

  • Enable merchants to process payments through the CreditCall payment gateway via a Bluetooth pin pad.
  • Work seamlessly between existing and new systems.
  • Provide a high-level of security for merchant, customer and CreditCall.

Making it happen

MyOxygen was approached by CreditCall who, after developing an iPhone application a number of years ago, had a clear idea of what they wanted.

MyOxygen’s team of expert developers worked with the existing software to create a new and more contemporary interface on the iPad.

The app was built upon CreditCall’s already existing CardEaseMobile SDK which provided access to the data entered on the PIN pad and a connection with CreditCall’s servers that handled the payment processing.

Conscious of a merchant’s desire to tailor and personalise each product, the app was developed in such a way that it can be easily ‘reskinned’ for each additional customer. This increasing level of personalisation is a clear strength for the app enabling its easy roll-out.

Outcome

MyOxygen developed the app to a tight schedule, enabling CreditCall to demonstrate it at the 2013 App World Conference at Earl’s Court where it took centre stage.

The app is currently being rolled out to merchants with initial feedback positive about its ease of use and intuitive interface. The project was delivered on time and on budget with CreditCall complimentary, commented on how MyOxygen had developed an app with their API in record time, with minimal assistance.

As a resident psychologist at the university the SAM app was crucial to the wellbeing of the UWE students. The app has been beneficial in supporting students who were suffering from anxiety or stress.

Self-help Anxiety Management

Intro

On the face of it, the life of a student doesn’t seem stressful, but the continued pressure of exams and the desire to succeed, coupled with the additional financial strain, can make being a student difficult.

The University of the West of England (UWE) is home to over 25,000 students, some of whom need a helping hand in measuring their stress levels, taking action if things get too much.

Background

A combined team from the Department of Psychology and the Department of Computer Science and Creative Technologies approached MyOxygen to develop the Student Anxiety Management (SAM) app which would:

  • Help users personally monitor and track their levels of stress and anxiety.
  • Provide guidance and support for users whose stress levels are increasing, presenting appropriate stress management options where appropriate.
  • Built around a design interface that is engaging, easy to use and social.
  • Work across all IOS and Android platforms.

Making it happen

The team at UWE, lead by psychologist Phil Topham, worked in partnership to create the SAM app SAM is believed to be one of the first apps of its kind developed by a university for use by students.

MyOxygen delivered Android and IOS based variants of the SAM Application also including access to a newly created "Social Cloud" platform where users can interact and communicate, to increase mobile engagement.

SAM is a psycho-educational tool that runs on smartphones and tablets to help users understand and manage their anxiety. It incorporates a range of self-help activities that are available 24/7 on the users' device.

SAM provides self-help tools for monitoring the user's anxious reactions in different situations and a range of self-help options to help in learning to manage their anxiety. These include relaxation exercises, meditation, calming images and interactive games. Users may also share anonymously in peer support through a closed social network of other users.

SAM is based on an academic knowledge of how the mind generates anxiety and draws on established methods of psychological self-help for reducing anxiety. MyOxygen’s development team and the experts at UWE implemented best practice in human-computer interaction design and usability evaluation studies have ensured that the app is intuitive and easy to use.

Outcome

The project has been extremely successful and topped 100,000 downloads in the first three months of being launched.

The Social Cloud platform has seen multiple postings daily and is being used continually to allow users the ability to post from the app to the Social Cloud in a similar way Facebook.

The collaboration, the first of its kind in the UK and potentially the world, is providing a model for future interactions and developments with the world of academia.

What the client said

MyOxygen are our preferred technology supplier with invaluable expertise in mobile.

Oliver Tovey

Resilience Officer
South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust

SWAS

Intro

When the crew of an ambulance turn up at a scene they often don’t know what to expect, and as a rule ‘expect the unexpected’. South West Ambulance Service Trust (SWAST) have policies and processes that cover almost every eventuality, but having access to these in a crisis in a time of emergency can be difficult.

During and after an incident the need to record information is key in managing, measuring and monitoring the situation for the benefit of the patient and the ambulance crew.

Background

SWAST contacted MyOxygen after seeing some of the high-quality apps they had created for other NHS organisations. There exacting requirements for the apps included:

  • Provide a single point of access for ambulance crews to all procedural documents.
  • The ability to record all details of an incident in a systematic and secure way.
  • Powers communications between the team ‘on the ground’ and those in the ambulance control centre.

Making it happen

SWAST and MyOxygen worked in partnership with the design and user-experience team to develop an iPad application that would work in a pressured and demanding environment.

MyOxygen created an app that can be used by busy ambulance crews to access key documents on the move. Working from a central database, crews can call up any and every procedure ensuring that they have the information they need at a crucial moment.

As well as providing support for busy crews, the digital platform enables control centre staff to the number and location of monitor on-duty staff. In a difficult environment control staff are able to see performance against key indicators.

Outcome

The project was rolled out over a 12 month period, with user testing in the field providing essential feedback which has helped to genuinely improve and refine the app.

The app has proved to be an invaluable tool and has now become a core part of the SWAST service. MyOxygen have also been approached by other services interested in developing their own including local fire services.

Haynes South West Man

Intro

For the last 50 years amateur mechanics have been reliant upon the iconic brand Haynes whose workshop manuals have provided expert support and guidance.

In early 2013 the NHS and Haynes joined together to produce the world’s first interactive Haynes manual about men’s health – and they asked MyOxygen to produce it.

Background

The NHS has a strong relationship with MyOxygen and, when commissioning the creation of this app, there was only one team they would trust. Designed for a specific group of patients, the NHS wanted an app that:

  • Engaged men of any age, providing male-specific health information in an engaging way.
  • Used the features of the iPad to interest and excite users.
  • Sympathetically treated the NHS and Haynes brand, using the strengths of both to create an innovative new product.

Making it happen

The team at MyOxygen worked with NHS experts from across the health system as well as representatives at Haynes to take a unique approach to the challenge.

Using a local graphic artist, MyOxygen developed an app that treated the often difficult subject-matter with a sympathetic and contemporary way.

The app was created with a variety of features, including an interactive calorie counter, a drinks tracker and a symptom monitoring facility.

Outcome

The app has been an overwhelming success with downloads in the thousands. As well as providing health information and advice in a way that men can relate to, it has helped to influence the way health information is delivered in the South West.

The app has also provided an introduction to the world of app development for Haynes who are keen to explore further.
