I make data-driven apps for iOS using Swift, CloudKit, and FileMaker. I’m especially good at apps that support an event, like this one.
The architecture for an event app is different than other apps. There’s more to consider. Producers often need to make last-minute changes, and users may struggle with connectivity in crowded/outdoor venues. Choose an app built on CloudKit and CoreData. Query and persist changes on launch, or silently fetch content in the background before users have even unlocked their phone. Neat.
Consider integrating Bluetooth beacons at your event (or office!). Beacons can operate separately or be configured as a region, with multiple onEnter and onExit triggers. Measure event traffic and dwell time. Fire a context-driven notification to a user’s lock screen and have your app respond with a View Controller. It’s wicked cool. Your users will love it.
