Their steadfast commitment is to provide accessible technology that facilitates the evaluation of content within its proper context.
Designing Android and iOS applications that seamlessly integrate web content search functionality while utilizing an open-source project like Chromium presents a unique challenge of incorporating web principles into a native app environment. Since our team lacked experience with Chromium, it was necessary to incorporate an industry expert to support and guide our efforts.
We hired a Chromium expert, and we began building two applications simultaneously. One application was focused on utilizing only the native components of each platform, while the other incorporated Chromium technology and concepts (by creating a fork of the project). Basic functionalities were initially provided with the native app, and once the Chromium project development is complete, the plan is to replace them with its features.
We successfully achieved a functional app available in the app stores, offering the basic search functionalities provided by Seekr.
