With functions like calculateHotness(); how could Swiggler not be a blast to work on? Of course I was excited to work on an app for nightlife, in one of my favorite cities to experience culture.
Knowing that Swiggler came from a difficult agency experience and had thousands of dollars in the hole, we knew that transparency and hours-budgeting was going to be more important than ever. At Three29 we pride ourselves on being flexible with our clients and their specs - we know that budgeted hours are always important.
Because not all clients are former app-developers themselves, they may not know 100% of the specs when we start a project. For example, the ability to "like" comments and posts became a critical piece more than halfway through the project. Knowing how to use budgeted hours most effectively ensured not only a quality project, but a feature-rich product, and a trust-based ongoing relationship.
Swiggler is a fun app to use and is spreading through the social sphere with good traction. I love going to Happy Hours nearby and seeing signage for the app that we helped nurture. When I look back at Swiggler and it’s impact on Three29 I can’t help but smile at how we took a bad experience for our two clients, and translated that into good times for thousands.
