Increased app rating from 1.5 to 4.7 within weeks of launch

Project overview

Prairie IT wanted to rebuild their iOS and Android app, which had been receiving poor user ratings, by taking into account all their customer feedback and their analysis of competitor products. The apps needed to address the usability and stability concerns of their predecessors and incorporate modern features that users have come to expect from similar apps. The client wanted to build a new, re-designed iOS and Android app from the ground up.

Project execution

The new PhotoStick Omni iOS and Android mobile apps surprised and delighted their users within weeks of launch. The applications are integrated with the existing PhotoStick Omni USB product, and enables users to consolidate their photos from multiple sources, including physical devices, social media and other cloud storage solutions. The apps are designed to be simple and easy to use, while supporting older mobile operating systems often used by the typical PhotoStick Omni app user.

Project results


Prairie IT received positive app store reviews and direct customer feedback and drastically improved its user review ratings on the app stores compared to the previous apps.

Client feedback

"This was a complex project and AppIt met all the deliverables on time. They were available daily for any questions or concerns. They have a great project management process such that I was able to log any bugs/issues during the development cycle. They addressed every one of them and when there was a tough issue to overcome, they never gave up."
