ROBINHOOD
Zero commission stock trading. Like it should be.
Robinhood is the next frontier in stock trading. The great team at Robinhood knew that trading overhead could be reduced, so they “cut out the fat that makes other brokerages costly” and created an iOS platform everyone could trade on. For free.

The Robinhood team wanted the sheer simplicity and benefit of their offering to be reflected in the UI. Our iOS team worked to produce fully animated, customizable and high-performance UI components that made the complex stock data look as simple as “free stock trading” sounds.
MOMENT
Parent - School Communication reimagined. A journey from an idea into a great product.
Previously a social network for moms, Moment has evolved into a platform that allows for parents to manage their kids’ activities by bringing them together with schools, classes & camps, allowing registration for classes, as well as news, events, and messaging through the Moment mobile apps.

The Hipo team has been Moment’s product team throughout its life cycle, having designed & built everything from infrastructure to Web, Android, & iOS apps. We’re really excited about Moment’s future as it’s starting to roll out in California. Looking forward to bringing it into the world!
FILAMENT
A companion app that makes reading scripture more interactive and engaging.
We’ve started working on Filament, after seeing the amazing experience Tyndale wanted to offer their readers. We were also intrigued by the potential help our machine learning knowledge could bring to the project, so began our Filament journey.

Building a very intuitive companion app proved to be an amazing challenge, and our mobile teams used their expertise in AI to come up with an incredibly accurate system for the app to recognize which page the user is on, and serve the content accordingly, solving the biggest companion app challenge in the most elegant way possible.
BLOGTO
Believe us; it’s a lot more than a city guide.
blogTO, Toronto’s go-to site for everyone to learn everything about the city. It’s a guide for where to go and what to do. It’s the place where you go to get informed about the city. It is also our longest-standing client.

We’ve been involved in blogTO’s mobile applications and backend for a long time, but for the past couple of years, we’ve been also working behind the scenes to rewrite their backend, and completely remodeling their web site. Finally, years of hard work is ready on display in this great site for a great city. Check it out.
IcebreakerAR
Dating platforms reimagined: How do you bring AR into matchmaking?
IcebreakerAR came to us with a singular vision: Let’s reimagine the existing mobile dating paradigms and create something truly different. The resulting product was a rapidly executed MVP that is now in early user testing stages.

Our team worked very closely with the Icebreaker founders to integrate an AR-driven dating experience that could detect matching profiles in the same room and display their avatars in a novel interface.
CHROMA
A platform for collectors cataloging curious things, with a UI that is simply pleasing to look at.
Chroma shows your photos as a visual encyclopedia. It helps you Catalogue, annotate and share your discoveries about the world with the world. It’s a dream for collectors, and for people who just want to look at beautiful things all day long.

With Chroma, we started from scratch. The Hipo team built a solid infrastructure, an easy to use admin panel, as well as the iOS & Web clients. Not content to stop there, the team is working with Computer Vision experts to create an image recognition feature that can identify any collectible item you capture in your camera.
BKM
Turkey’s largest digital payment system needed a touch up.
BKM is Turkey’s Paypal, with its app, BKM Express, providing a digital wallet solution to a million users. They were having trouble with client conversion, even with their great product that provided commission-free service, due to the company’s unique position in the market. Our design team stepped in to help.

We’ve designed the BKM Express app from the ground up, removing the pain points of the previous app and reducing the difficulty of navigation. The redesign was a big success, vastly improving conversion rates and increasing downloads.
FAMELOG
A platform to bring celebrities closer to their fans, while benefiting charities.
We were approached by Famelog at the beginning of the project. The client wanted to build an infrastructure & platform that allowed celebrities a way to interact with their fans in a novel way, offering special streams & shared media in exchange for subscription & donations from their fans.

Starting with the API development, the client soon asked Hipo to run the full tech team, building the native mobile apps as well. The full Hipo tech team worked on Famelog until its launch, building a great, scalable infrastructure and intuitive apps to go with it.
KEEN HOME
Internet of Awesome Things: A smart vent and companion apps that control the airflow in your home, room by room.
Keen Home smart vents are installed on your HVAC ventilation system, and with the help of some amazing software, they allow you to regulate the temperature & airflow of each room. The talented Keen Home team needed Hipo’s help to build mobile apps that their customers would use daily for controlling their vents. That’s how we met.

We built Keen’s iOS & Android apps from ground up, working closely with their design and infrastructure teams.
MUSE
A meditation assistant that senses your brain waves!
Muse is a headband that connects to your mobile device and measures and records your brainwaves. Using this amazing gadget, the Muse team wanted to create an app to help users meditate, reporting on their brain activity during meditation sessions.

We built Muse’s Android app from ground up. Meditation sessions and the headband calibration sequence was challenging, and we are very happy with the beautiful end result. Developing for this great little new-age device made us proud (and a lot calmer).
NEUBIBLE
Our client thought reading the Bible should be simple and distraction free. We agreed.
The name says it all. Neubible has one goal; to make the Bible accessible and effortless to read, in the digital environment. From bookmarking to font selection to night mode, Neubible is a digital source for inspiration whenever you need it.

Neubible was our client’s passion. He strived for perfection in his designs, and wanted the same mindset in his development team. Our iOS Devs took the challenge on happily.
VOLT
Ride with someone like you!
Volt is a ride sharing platform built around communities. Unlike other, similar products out there, Volt is designed around social trust and safety, aiming to bring ride sharing to workplaces, schools and residential neighbourhoods.

We were involved in Volt from the very early stages and our product team was responsible for everything from strategy to branding and the complete technology stack. We planned, designed and executed a very fast-paced product development sprint that allowed Volt access to market within 6 months. Post-launch, we interviewed, hired and trained a complete technology team for Volt, allowing the product to move forward with an internal team.
