Social networking app for party people

Do A Wilson Native iOS mobile app development

Similar to Instagram and Snapchat, the app uses facial recognition technology to apply live filters, masks, effects, and animations. Users can chat with each other or in a group chat. Most liked posts are displayed on the trending Wilsons home screen to maximise exposure and give users an overview of what is the most popular content.

Do a Wilson business goals

We started with a simple idea. I'm at the party, and I want to take a video with amazing masks and to post it to all the party people out there! Do A Wilson mobile app idea was exciting from the start. Developing a brand new social media networking app for iOS was a challenge our team eagerly accepted. It's not every day we get to work with amazing new augmented reality technology.

DeepAR facial recognition

Live face masks and accessories are the main features. DeepAR came on top when we researched available technologies, works on humans and pets too!

Apple in-app purchases

Do a Wilson offers its users the option to upgrade to VIP subscription and get instant access to all masks and accessories.

Serverless cloud architecture
