Project overview

The project launched by undertaking an in-depth evaluation of the established online booking system. It offers the opportunity to find the best properties in different cities and reserve them online. The platform was accessible via a web browser only.

We have enabled mobile access to the existing online booking platform by developing iOS and Android applications from scratch. The apps foresee the opportunity to find the best rooms/houses/apartments for rent and book them in a few taps.

All the data is fully synchronized with the current web application. Hence, users can access the same functionality via desktop and mobile devices.


Our task

Our team was tasked with developing mobile applications to enable access to the existing booking app launched on the web. The applications had to feature the same functionality as the web app.

Furthermore, the client provided us with the backend functionality for developing an integrated solution. Hence, the major tasks our team was requested to tackle included the following.

  • Existing web app analysis
  • Technology selection
  • UI/UX design development
  • iOS and Android app development
  • Testing and release

Hire CodeIT team to develop a custom booking app



We have developed and released native Android and iOS apps and integrated the provided backend.

1. Analysis and tech stack selection

The CodeIT business analysis (BA) expert thoroughly examined the existing online booking app and documentation provided by the client. The BA expert has defined the scope of work and outlined major activities. Our software engineers have defined technology stacks for developing both iOS and Android mobile applications.

2. Apps development planning

We have decomposed the mobile app development tasks and created backlogs with user stories for running two development processes in parallel. Moreover, we’ve composed the “definition of done” for each user story and created key performance indicators (KPIs).

3. UI/UX design

The CodeIT UI/UX designer analyzed the web app’s visual components and created a style guide, including brand identity, color patterns, typography, icons, etc. The expert has composed two UI/UX designs for Android and iOS applications, considering native UI components for each system.


4. iOS & Android apps development

Following the prepared plan, our software engineers have developed the iOS and Android apps, comprising the following features.

Create a new account screen

Consalting icon Registration and Login

Users can easily sign up for the application using:

  • email address
  • social media account

They can specify personal and billing information and start browsing properties for rent.

The application foresees the opportunity to start a quick help chat to ask questions or resolve possible issues.

Create a new account screen

Consalting icon Location & Date Selection

The smart search bar analyzes input text in real-time and offers suggestions on the best matching destinations. Hence, users can pick a desired location by tapping a few first letters in the bar.

Using the built-in calendar, users can select the check-in and check-out dates in a few taps.

Create a new account screen

Consalting icon Listing & Map Search

All the properties available for rent in a selected location are listed and arranged by rating.

Meanwhile, they are shown on a map for better location comprehension. The integrated map supports the opportunity to narrow down the search by selecting a district on the map.

Create a new account screen

Consalting icon Quick Filtering

The application features the opportunity to filter out irrelevant ads by setting the following:

  • property type
  • amenities
  • price

Selected ads can be shortlisted by clicking on the like button.

Create a new account screen

Consalting icon Detailed Information & Reservation

Each ad has a dedicated page with detailed information on property for rent.

The page comprises the following:

  • property rating
  • photos
  • list of amenities
  • comments
  • additional renting details/conditions

Also, it features the opportunity to make a reservation and make a payment online.
