Our approach to a social media app development

Discovery phase
We schedule a meeting with the client to clarify all project details. They include industry, goals, requirements, and more. Business Analysts compile all information in the specification, while designers make wireframes.
Product design
Based on wireframes and requirements from the previous phase, designers create eye-catching prototypes that show the final design of each screen. After the client’s approval, designers send prototypes over to developers, and the development begins.
Product development
The development process is split into sprints, during which developers must implement a certain number of features. Each feature goes through QA testing to make sure everything works as intended. This cycle continues until every feature is developed.
We conduct final polishing, publish the app, and transfer all deliverables to a client. After that, we initiate post-release support to implement minor tweaks based on the owner’s feedback and provide the onboarding process on request.


We keep deepening our expertise to build even more innovative, secure, and compliant software

Key features to power your social media app

Users spend around 3 hours daily on social media thanks to the mix of retention-oriented features that you should definitely consider when creating an app.

Real-time messaging

  • Chatting is what social apps are all about. We’ll help you build real-time messaging to meet user needs with and related technologies.

Audio and video calls

  • Another feature that lets users always stay in touch with their friends is audio and video calls. We typically use WebRTC RTP and RTMP protocols to implement streaming features.

Content posting and sharing

  • This feature lets users personalize their pages and share news and content with others. We’ll create a user-friendly, yet powerful functionality with user needs in mind.

AIl recommendations

  • AI recommendations are a great way to increase user experience and make it more personal. It can be a news feed based on interests or new friends' suggestions.

Location-based content

  • Showing content relevant to users’ location is another way to retain them. Google Places can be of great help in making this feature for most products.

Push notifications

  • Keep in touch with your users with the help of push notifications. Our social media app developers use the FCM tool to develop personalized push notifications.

User profile

  • It’s a cornerstone of many apps. We take into account your ideas and requirements to build a thoughtful profile screen with all necessary information.


  • Users want to stay tuned, so it’s vital to give them an option to have news on the tip of their fingers. That’s where all updates from friends and channels of interest are stored.

Social media apps we’ve delivered

Social media app for dancers
Create a place where dancers from all over the world can share dancing videos and compete with each other. The entire app must be built using a high-performance server-side for fast media uploading.
How we solved it:
Developed a Swift-based app for iOS with a powerful server-side built with Node.js and MySQL. The main feature of Ayoo Dance is called ‘Dance Battle’. It allows users to record synchronous videos where one dancer repeats the moves of another and lets the audience decide who is the most skilled dancer by means of likes.

Swift, Node.js, MySQL

How we solved it:
We created the iOS version of GreenLight app with a user-friendly design and traffic lights color scheme. The app is based on Swift, Moya, Angular, and MySQL. We ensured user data security with ISO 27001 compliance.
