Snow Reports iPhone Application
- Mobile & Apps
SnowReports is New Zealand’s leading website for reporting on ski field conditions, such as weather reports, facilities that are open and access road conditions.
In mid-2008 Apple launched the 3G iPhone to the New Zealand market. Cabbage Tree Creative, owner of SnowReports, wanted to build an iPhone application to test our development capabilities and provide a proof of concept to our customers.
Develop a mobile application targeting the iPhone device to deliver mobile reports directly from the SnowReports website.
Simplicity: Simplicity for the user and delivering the right information defines a successful iPhone application. In this instance, we pared the website information down to its core components, creating easy-to-view summary reports for the iPhone.
Capability: The successful implementation of our own iPhone application is an outstanding example of how talented Cabbage Tree's development team is. Adapting their online programming skills to creating this application is clear evidence that we have what it takes to deliver leading-edge applications.
The Future: Mobile technology and mobile solutions are becoming more important as infrastructure and hardware improves. The future is mobile and Cabbage Tree Creative is in a strong position to help your business move in that direction without compromising your existing online investments.
Built from a solid foundation of the ThriveCMS tool and snow reporting application it was easy for our talented development team to convert this information into a dynamic mobile solution.
Delivering the right kind of information and being able to keep it up-to-date seamlessly with the website means the SnowReports application has become one of the more popular applications for New Zealand iPhone users.
