Chestionare auto SoferOnline - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, but not much. I've mostly started learning development properly while building the website & app (and re-written it from scratch, about 3 times).

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

React-Native was in an early development stage, not as stable as today, and upgrading was tricky and painful sometimes.

Having a large amount of data on the client side and querying them quickly, was also tricky.

SoftATAC is a small company in Romania, dedicated to improving the teaching & learning experience for the driving school industry. E-learning apps, CRM-ERP for driving schools, community, drive safe.

As an owner, Andrei Ciceu is a developer, start-up enthusiast, and a geek. He likes playing sports & video games, and traveling.

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

Pocket Git: Very good Android GIT client, gives access to all my repos on mobile.
Shazam: Saves my favorite songs from parties & events.
Spotify: Amazing AI music discovery service, great UI/UX and integration with TV/google Home, Laptop.

How long have you been working on this app?

Started working in 2012 on the web version, and I think 2014 the Ionic-Cordova version of the mobile app, and then the React-Native version of the mobile app in 2016.

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

To learn how to drive in a logical and easy manner, rather than just cramming up theory. And also improve the communication between driving schools and students.

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.

While using the app, it "learns" which subjects you don't have a strong grasp on, and suggests you questions from that specific field; so, you get a complete and sound learning experience.

I've developed an algorithm (it was actually my master's thesis) that generates a personalized data model for each student, keeps track of their answers to the theory questions, and creates questionnaires with the "problematic" ones.

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

There's a "Plan for getting a driving licence" section, which contains all the steps necessary to get your driving licence: from signing up to the driving school, driving with the instructor, learning & taking the exams, taxes, etc. We plan to add more detailed data/articles to those parts.

And, adding new driving schools.

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.)?

Share the app with friends who are now (or want to in the future) getting their driving licence.
