Gryyny aims to help golf community build the right relationships whilst giving golf coaches a set of tools to perform their daily business duties much more effectively.
Before Gryyny, coaches and players faced many issues. For example, it was quite hard to discover each other. Players looking for a coach needed to do an extensive google search making notes along the way to compare their services. Coaches were relying on their own websites which they had no time to keep updated. Managing the relationship when it happened was not entirely painless either. Communication was scattered between SMS, calls, records on paper and vague memories.
Gryyny solved these problems in the form of a web app. But that's not enough. People were using it mostly on the go on their mobile devices. It was lacking live chat and notifications, which were expected by their users. Native mobile apps were the way to go.
The first step in the process was identifying the core problems we were trying to solve to form some kind of an MVP. We didn't want to just plainly copy the website, because the context in which they both were used was different. The plan was to build the first version with only essential features and take it from there.
As always, we started with pen and paper. The most promising wireframes made it to an interactive prototype very quickly. It's invaluable to be able to touch the app and feel if the flow is right in the early stages.
Making It Happen
After we decided on the features and flows, we set out to create beautiful high-fidelity designs. The app was going to be available on both iOS and Android and we wanted to make sure that users would feel comfortable. So instead of creating an unified design, we went the other way and made a different one for each platform following appropriate guidelines.
The development was carried out using native technologies ensuring high quality output and everything Gryyny users expect from an app.
Development of the first version is currently arriving to an end and the apps will be available in the App Store and Play Store for you to check out soon. Stay tuned!
