Caliverse - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, I have worked as a full-time programmer for all my adult life - around 10 years now.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Time management. I have a full-time job, am doing workouts at least 3 times a week, I have a wife, and I still need to manage to find time to code Caliverse.

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

Calisteniapp: Because of their clean and beautiful interface and features they offer. Freeletics because they are working on ML coach that probably is the future.

How long have you been working on this app?

More than 2 years. Started in January 2019.

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

I was doing calisthenics myself and of course, I was giving a try to many calisthenics apps but all of them lacked some features I needed. I wanted to give more to people who cannot afford to pay for the subscription which is not common in fitness apps. That's why Caliverse has a lot of free content. And I wanted the flexibility of making my own workouts and scheduling my week. Last but not the least, I wanted to make a platform where I could find a coach and have a professional that would help me out with my questions.

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.

Caliverse is unique with its content. There are more than 300 exercises with videos and descriptions, more than 100 workouts, and more than 10 professionally made training plans. This all is for free. Caliverse is the only app out there that offers live workout sessions with coaches so everyone can join in a group session with a coach and have instant feedback on how he is performing exercises and ask questions. And of course, worth mentioning, is our latest feature that is only starting to roll - Caliverse Coaching. Everyone can find a coach for personal training, pay through the app, and have actual training also through the app. It is a great alternative to going to the gym and having a personal trainer but is cheaper and can be done at home.

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

The main goal for us is to build a larger community so there is a place for everyone where to ask questions, share progress and just talk with like-minded people. We have started working on that by creating a Facebook group - Caliverse Community - and we plan to grow it in the upcoming years. We will continue to work on new plans, new monthly challenges with prizes - make our content more appealing to everyone. We want to expand our coaching platform so more coaches are approved and added in Caliverse so our users can find what they are looking for. And coaches will not be able to just offer personal training in the future but also sell their plans in Caliverse Training Marketplace.

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.)?
