WitchApp - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, I have been developing iOS and Android apps for a few years.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

The app needs to run quietly in the background, using as little power as possible whilst working around the restrictions set by the OS and device manufacturers.

I’m a French developer specialized in iOS and Android applications. I started coding as a hobby during the last years of Junior High School (pure HTML websites at the time) and it has never left me to this day!

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

On my phone, the application I use the most is the official Reddit application. It has become my main source of information since I use neither Twitter nor Facebook. There is also a little French app called Yuka that is really awesome. The concept is dead simple: you scan the barcode of a food product and it tells you how good (or how bad) it is for your health.

How long have you been working on this app?

We’ve leveraged a lot of experience gathered by working on other apps we built in the past. So once we had specified the MVP, designing it and developing it to releasing of the public beta was relatively quick.

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

Social networks let you set your own self but not necessarily help find the right place and app to help you engage with your close friends. We wanted to help with that by automating the sharing of relevant apps, in real time so you can create new opportunities to contact your friends.

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.

Automated sharing across all apps should be the first reason. We’re proud to enable our users to share with their friends whilst preserving their privacy, typically the opposite of what many apps do.

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

We’ll see how our first users react. Feedback will be very useful. We want to provide users with the tools they need to spot which friends to engage, whether they interact through our app or not. It’s about spending less time online on your own and more time with your friends.

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.)?

You can download the app and get in the queue. It shouldn’t be long before we let you in and you’ll then be able to invite your friends and they’ll skip the queue too.


About App: Create invitations to connect with your friends and share the apps you use. You can share the codes with them any way you like: email, SMS, Whatsapp, Snap, etc...even on a postcard (but be careful as the codes are case-sensitive)! If you launch Netflix (from the icon in WitchApp or from anywhere else), a notification will be shown to your friends. These notifications work for any app you share. By clicking on your friend's picture, you can exchange messages. The green light shows whether your friend is using his/her phone. Your privacy matters: Only your friends see the apps you share and you can adjust which apps you share in the app settings. By default, games, entertainment and social apps are shared.
