An app created in a month
We had to act quickly, and that was undoubtedly the greatest challenge that we would encounter with Respire - we had just one month in which to design, develop and launch their app. Respire is an association that regularly comes up with high-impact initiatives designed to raise awareness of air quality, and they called upon us when they needed an app to host their interactive map showing pollution levels across the Ile-de-France region.
A socially responsible project
Agence 148 is truly committed to improving things. It’s not just a load of bullshit

An optimised user experience
One of the main aims of the Respire project was to create an intuitive and easy-to-use app, and that was where we came in. After all, optimising UX design is our speciality! We took care of both the development and the graphics side of things, meaning that Respire didn’t need to call upon any other service providers, and they quickly approved all aspects of our proposal.
We came up with some ideas and they listened to us and advised us

From a more technical perspective, what we created was a hybrid app, meaning that it was developed for use with both iOS and Android using the Apache Cordova tool. This is the only type of service we offer at Agence 148, for the simple reason that a single code means a single development team and therefore lower development and maintenance costs and greater responsiveness when it comes to future updates.
An open source app
In keeping with the Respire association itself, the decision was taken to publish the app’s source code online; after all, we’re not afraid to share our ideas and our recipes for success. This means that anyone can now use our model free of charge to create their own app.
We’re not afraid to see a client fly the nest; in fact, we would be proud to see Respire create its next app by itself
Mathias Fryde, Co-founder, Agence 148
Concluding with the technical aspects of the app, we should point out that it will, in future, be possible to convert it into a PWA (Progressive Web App) - a technology that allows us to avoid the restrictions of downloading from the App-Store and to perform updates more quickly.
A long-term venture
Sébastien Vray had already called upon our services for his first project, Courseur - a shopping delivery service between neighbours -, when he needed us to develop the app he required to launch the service, so when it came to Respire he decided to place his faith in us once again and of course, we were only too happy to oblige!
