August 2014 to December 2014
Feeln, previously Spiritclips, app brings home the exclusive library of Hallmark Hall of Fame movies, handpicked Hollywood favorites, and award-winning originals. - Feeln is the only streaming service to offer the Hallmark Hall of Fame collection of films, with more titles added every month. Feeln is a part of Hallmark Cards.
Ending up with being the soul developer responsible for migrating from Spiritclips to feeln, I decided to re-architect the app. The architecture was necessary in order to make the app easily to listen and respond to device and network changes. The second decision is to design and implement new screen layouts in order to fit in every target device and orientation.
Closed caption, smoother video performance and no code duplications were among the many new features and fixes add to the app.
DIRECTV FOR LATIN AMERICA
Dec 08, 2014 to April 10, 2015
I'm really proud of this work. I was assigned to work on creating a DIRECTV application for the Latin American countries. First, I thought it was a matter of adding translation to the English version.
Not so fast, I said to myself when I saw what was lying a head of me.
New challenges, such as different business rules, country regulations time zones and character set had to be taking into consideration. String comparison was no longer useful in this project.
I lead a team of 3 developers. With dedication and hard work the app launched in October 2015.
