The mobile app journey so far…

No more “Roti, Kapda aur Makan” are considered to be the bare essentials for living. For me and my generation, added to that list is “Mobile”! With a mobile in hand, we are like the super human beings who can do anything we wish to.

Mobile phones have today reached every nook and corner of India, and to enable our valued users, avail  the privileges, offered by Vantage Circle anywhere, anytime,  we have developed mobile apps for all three popular platforms in India – Android, iPhone and Windows.

Our mobile app development journey began about a year back, when we were looking at cross – platform frameworks to develop our mobile app and we stumbled upon Appcelerator Titanium. The learning curve of Titanium was steep but being based on JavaScript we were able to get a prototype out soon. We published our first version of both Android and iPhone app built on Titanium.

But soon we realised the huge percentage of Android users in India, and with a native Android developer joining the team, we decided to taste native land, switching over to developing the Android app in Java. Our Windows app, as well is developed using native C# in Visual Studio development environment. But for the iPhone app we are still leveraging the power of Titanium.

Vantage Circle is constantly striving to enhance its mobile apps, both in terms of appearance and  functionality, always with the aim of providing a  better experience to the users.

Very soon we will be showcasing our next version of the Android app which will have drastic UI changes catering to the changes introduced by the new Android 5.0 Lollipop release . A new much improved version of the iPhone app, will also follow suit  supporting the new iOS 8 SDK as well as the new bigger iPhones in town – iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus!

Through this blog, we would like to get our readers and users a step closer to one of the favorite sections on the Vantage Circle website – The Red Carpet. Before we delve into talking about this featured section, here is a quick synopsis of who we are!

Red Carpet

What?

The Red Carpet section on the Vantage Circle website allows a corporate registered user to be up close with various brands and avail privileges directly via brand promoted surveys, quizzes, and interesting contests.

This essentially is a Red Carpet between the privileged user and the Brand.

Why?

One of the best things about the Red Carpet section is that, every brand put up here comes up with customized offers and privileges that are designed exclusively for corporate members.

All the brands listed on our Red Carpet page have exciting gifts and special prizes to be won upon participation in these activities. We announce these winners every month on our Red Carpet section. Another reason why users would be interested in participating in these activities is to earn credits (reward points) redeemable on high value gift vouchers. Each point is directly equivalent to INR 1 which makes the points credible and meaningful.

How?

In order to earn rewards points, users can periodically participate in brand related surveys and quizzes presented in this section. In most cases, after answering a quiz, you may also invite your colleagues and friends to register at Vantage Circle, and thereby earn even more reward points!
