Synapse started the project by designing the app with the end-user in mind. The app needed to be easy-to-use and allow clinicians to quickly fire off tests without the confusion of option overload. Breezing was consulted throughout design to bring the idea to life.
Synapse worked directly with the Breezing team to ensure the measurement data interpolation logic was being executed correctly and produced accurate results.
External hardware BLE
Synapse utilized our talented development resources to solve some complex external hardware Bluetooth communications problems to ensure our goals were being met in a timely fashion.
While we’ve worked on a number of HIPAA-compliant apps, we also consulted with FDA compliance experts to ensure all the i’s were dotted and t’s were crossed.
A major feature need was the ability for the app to execute a firmware update on a connected device. Problematically, previous-generation devices did not allow for this functionality and the Breezing team was working on the new device feature in parallel to app development. In order to avoid a “handoff” from Breezing to Synapse, we developed the feature against a Texas Instrument test board. This allowed us to build the feature app-side before the capability was available in the devices themselves, which cut down the deliverable runway considerably.
Offline mode / Private Distro
Midway through development of the initial app project, we were asked to create a version of the app that did not store data in the cloud. This was quite a shift in essential functionality but we were able to make this change in a short amount of time, in a scalable manner. Our approach made a molehill out of a mountain.
In order to distribute this app privately (not seen in the public app store), we utilized the Apple Business Manager toolkit which allowed us to distribute redemption codes to targeted parties which downloaded the private app directly onto their iOS devices.
