  • YourGymGF is a social media app where you can create or join your own private forum to enhance accountability and communication between fitness groups, friends, colleagues, or teammates.  The first version of the app is available on iTunes and Google Play.  However, we immediately noticed through test groups that notifications were going to be necessary.  Users actually look for this information because they have been trained by Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and other social medias. Because YourGymGF is too a social media app, notification functionality is crucial to stimulating communication among users. Without notifications, the communication between users declines, which in turn effects the accountability, bonding, and motivation among groups. The time to complete this project is one month and the cost of adding this feature is $4,000.
  • Attached is a screen shot of a Facebook Notification screen. We are using this to help depict what we are looking for as far as posting and commenting notifications done within the app- most importantly within a team's private newsfeed group. This is a crucial missing piece to the software that allows the user to stay in touch and engage in communication. Without it, a user has no idea what posts, comments or likes are being made on any of their contributions in the newsfeed or any other group members. The benefits and concept of a close-knit group are completely disregarded when no one is made aware of the activity going on within by their own teammates.

Risks and challenges

The potential challenge for adding this functionality would be a production delay for the next version. We did face this setback in the initial creation of the YourGymGF app but we are very confident with the final product. We understand our users want specific new functionality as soon as possible but we also feel it is very important to launch a sound user friendly platform. Our team of app builders has been amazing throughout the creation of the app and we are confident they will continue their great work.
