92nd On Demand

Technical concept, UI/UX design and development of native apps for iPad, iPhone, Android phones and tablets.

Customer

92nd Street Y is a world-class nonprofit community and cultural center that connects people at every stage of life to the worlds of education, the arts, health and wellness, and Jewish life.

Through the breadth and depth of 92Y’s extraordinary programs, the organization enrichs lives, create community and elevate humanity. More than 300.000 people visit 92Y’s New York City venues annually, and millions more join through digital media.

Task

Axinom has been chosen as vendor for iOS and Android app development and UI/UX design for mobile and tablet form factors. 92nd Street provides its audience with an extensive catalogue of video interviews, concerts, performances and much more.

The apps were supposed to offer on-demand and live video streaming of these events, furthermore they should include events calendar and allow users to directly buy event tickets through the app interface.

Solution

Axinom has built apps for smartphones and tablets, supporting both landscape and portrait mode. By implementing an API which acquires content feeds and provides apps with XML, Axinom enabled 92nd Street to use existing infrastructure and WordPress-based backend. The solution is capable of handling subcatalogues with a large amount of assets very smoothly. Both apps are successfully launched and will be further developed in the future.
