About this project
For our client Citibank in London we were assigned to make their FX Pro Platform accessible for tablets and mobile phones. We decided to develop native apps for iPhone, iPad and Android smartphones in order to be able to deliver the very best experience. Besides the native apps we also developed a mobile HTML5 site for Blackberry and Windows Phone users.
It was a challenge to implement realtime streaming of currency data to a broad range of mobile devices. In order to do this we developed a completely new API layer on top of the FIX protocol, which is able to continuously transfer data safely while maintaining fast performance. For trading we used a hybrid web solution. This way we optimized the user experience with native performance where needed, but kept cost and compatibility under control for a broad range of devices.
