Cultureo - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Absolutely not. I followed 6 months of intensive coding courses online on Udemy was quite hard since it was during my spare time.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Without hesitation, it was everything related to the in-app purchase. To be honest, I did not anticipate that problem and when I discovered what it requires in terms of coding knowledge, I almost gave up….

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

ChatGPT: Just revolutionary

Binance: very well coded, amazing app
Citymapper: nothing fancy, just super useful
Cultureo: :)

How long have you been working on this app?

1 year.

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

Like a lot of people of my generation, sometimes I just found ridiculous the time we spend on our mobile, scrolling and wasting our time. Also, after a few years of working experience, I just could not remember basic things on Art and History while I spent so many years at school and university…

After sharing this observation with my entourage and a specific online market sounding, I decided to create a micro learning app that would allow people to improve their culture as easily as possible.

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.

I think it is a combination of multi factors:

1) Microlearning: The app is based on the micro learning concept, meaning that everything is designed so that users can improve their culture in less than 5 min. Articles are divided in several parts that require 3min of reading maxium. 2) Multiple formats: you can read our articles but also listen to our podcasts. Hence, no matter where you are or what you do, you can find time to cultivate yourself. 3) Quizz: It is always good to reward the user and show they are making progress. Also, it has been proved that games like quiz help memorization 4) Focus on Art & History: Most of Culture apps propose multiple topics while according to serious market sounding, people tend to be interested in Art and History…over for instance Science, Sport, etc.

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

(We have great ideas and do not want to communicate on those now, thx)

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.)?

Yes, please try the app and share it with your friends. You will find it quite addictive 
