atlasGO - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Our engineering team consists of coders with experience ranging from complete novices to industry veterans.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

We built our app in React Native which was a new platform for everyone on the team in a time when React Native was relatively new to the scene and untested. An example of some of the hurdles includes getting backgrounding to function reliably on all devices.

Thomas Querton, the interviewee, is the co-founder and CEO of atlasGo. atlasGO is the global community of sweaty changemakers where fitness meets purpose. It's an app that allows you to walk, run, and bike for a good cause. Corporations sponsor your every step for charity!

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

Calm, Lyft, Sleep Cycle, and Principles. They are simple and useful.

How long have you been working on this app?

We’ve been working on our product for 3 years now.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

Need to connect, stay healthy, and make an impact.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

In comparison with other running apps we allow our users to make an impact (plant a tree) every time they do sports. This creates a special type of community. We call it a community of sweaty changemakers.
In comparison with other social media platforms, we focus on the user’s health and wellness. Our users connect to support and motivate each other to take care of themselves and the world they live in!

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

We will develop a cleaner user experience, add ways to support the environment (stories, achievements,...) + a store to support other charities with our new product: www.virtualrace.org

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?
