Rebuilding a Leading Influence Marketing App
To release a fresh and new user interface for a Leading Tool for Social Media Influence Marketers.
About The Client
YOKE Network is an Influence Marketing Agency that revolutionises the way apps can grow with influencers.
They came up with the idea of an app with two simultaneous goals: to help you reach the right influencers that will enhance your commercial activities on social media and to help influencers find great products they could advertise and get paid for doing so. The app became an effective tool to match influencers with their advertising possibilities.
YOKE Network team had the app working on an older version of React Native and wanted to upgrade the code to the newest version and give it a performance and user experience boost.
They wanted to keep the app in React Native, to avoid building two separate apps for iOS and Android and keep it all in one codebase.
Besides that, they also wanted to give it a new look and feel, as they had new ideas to implement in the app. This is why we were also asked to build and add a few more functionalities.

TECHNOLOGIES USED DURING THIS PROJECT
Firebase Push Notifications
STEP 1 UPDATE REACT NATIVE
At the beginning the app was on React Native 0.40, so we had to start from the ground up. We upgraded the code to the newest version of React Native (and other dependencies).
Working with the code is always fun for our senior developer Jakub.
STEP 2 IMPROVE THE APP PERFORMANCE
The next step (also executed by Jakub) was code refactoring, to match it with the latest standards. This step was quite a challenge, so we decided to divide the code into smaller pieces.
Thanks to that we were not only able to improve the app performance significantly, but also make the app ready for further improvements and scalability.
STEP 3 REBUILD UX/UI
After Receiving new look and feel designs from YOKE, two of our React Native developers - Daniel and Tom - have been working on the entire app interface rebuild to implement them.
Designs were also prepared with further app scalability and improvements in mind, and that led to the final step.
STEP 4 ADD NEW FUNCTIONALITIES
As a last step, we’ve built and added a few new functionalities, for example:
Ability to connect with different Social Media accounts
Registration and security improvements
After all the improvements from the source code, through designs into scaling the app with new functionalities, we’ve arrived with the brand new product ready to be used by the first influencers and social media marketers.
Put very simply, Pagepro is amazing to work with. They feel like an extension of my own team. They’re fast and effective and I feel like they deeply understand our product and what we’re building. For a startup this is paramount for us.
