AT&T Inc. is the largest provider both of mobile telephony and of fixed telephony in the USA and also provides broadband subscription television services. As of 2012, it is also the 20th largest mobile telecom operator in the world, with over 106 million mobile customers.
Features Apps (FA) Widget is preloaded on Android phones and tablets released by AT&T. It’s placed on the tabletop of the devices and contains editorially-controlled carousel highlighting applications and games from AT&T and its content partners.
This version of FA for Android phones has a look and feel of the tablet version and provides an overall better end user experience. The widget encourages user engagement by providing fresh, timely and relevant content right on the home screen of the device. If the user sees a piece of content they would like to learn more about, or download, they might click on it and they are directed to the source storefront (i.e. Google Play) for download.
Akvelon was chosen as the sole contractor for this project. One of the reasons for this is the aggressive timeline Akvelon agreed on and the fact that Akvelon took full responsibility end-to-end for this fixed-bid contract. The project required a collaboration between two of Akvelon’s offices.
They completely reinvented the featured widgets, thank you!
Featured Apps is a phone-top widget that helps solve the discoverability challenge by enabling users to find the best apps/games from AT&T and 3rd party developers. From a functionality perspective, it is a simple user interface with a streamlined download flow. The widget has left and right arrows that allows the user to scroll through content. If the user sees a piece of content they would like to learn more about, or download, they can click on it and they are directed to the source storefront (i.e. Google Play) for download.
FAv2 is not only to provide the new user interface, but will also create a better end user experience, improve discoverability of useful Android apps, therefore improving customer satisfaction and reduction in support calls. The widget has a simple user interface and a streamlined download flow. It has left and right arrows that allow the user to scroll through content.
The widget consists of 3 different layouts:
Akvelon created a new user interface providing a better end user experience of the widget. The improved discoverability of useful Android apps is to increase customer satisfaction and reduce in support calls. Akvelon built a redesigned FAv2 widget to ensure that the application meets all the functional and nonfunctional requirements, as well as provides a consistent, optimized user interface on all the required screen configurations.
Hewlett-Packard (HP) is an American global information technology company that develops and provides a wide variety of hardware components, software, and related services to consumers, small- and medium-sized businesses and large enterprises. HP’s services unit offers IT and business process outsourcing, application development, consulting, systems integration, and other technology services. The 75-year-old company generates software sales through enterprise IT management, big data, and security applications.
HP wanted to establish a presence at conferences in the open source technology realm. They sought after a technical and creative team to help them showcase their work with Open Source technologies. They needed a team that was accustomed to Open Source work, especially with technologies such as MongoDB, Node.js, Redis, etc.
Additionally, this feature needed to be conveyable and adhere to an audience of developers, IT architectures, IT managers, sales managers at conferences and business partners.
In order to create such an impact with business partners and conferences, Akvelon implemented HP’s Interactive Darts project. The Interactive Darts Project was designed as a game to get people involved answering trivia questions about Open Source technologies, and HP’s involvement with it.
To start the game, users are authenticated with their conference badge, which also allows for lead generation and networking. The Interactive Darts game consists of three rounds. During every round, the user throws their dart three times, and is asked a question with every dart. The user gives an answer to the quiz question using Kinect moves.
The results of the game can be sent to their Twitter, and the overall results of are shown in a global leaderboard.
• Raspberry PI
• Open Source Technologies: Redis, MongoDB, Arduino, Node.js, RabbitMQ
• Twitter API
Benefits and Results
The Interactive Dart Game was a success, and will be used for business partners, conferences and senior management. HP is working on more installations, tuning and distributing open source projects into the interactive game so the game never tires.
Through this project, HP is proving to be more innovative and creative while aiming to show their open source capabilities and projects. You can look forward to seeing this interactive stand at the next conference they attend.
