Kolkata, India (PressExposure) April 22, 2015 -- This one is being billed as the biggest app project of Teknowledge Software in the second quarter of 2015. The mobile app company has joined hands with renowned senior art director, Tejmur Sattarov, to create a unique emoji and sticker keyboard app. The project is likely to be completed within three weeks.
Hailing the concept behind the application - named Veeaie Keyboard - Mr. Hussain Fakhruddin stated that it was one of the most exciting projects he has ever worked on. Considering that he is involved in mobile app development for close to a decade and his company has two international branches (in Australia and Sweden), that's definitely saying something!
Veeaie Keyboard, the ambitious third-party emoji keyboard app conceptualized by Tejmur Sattarov, will be customized for the Apple iOS 8 platform. Not surprisingly, Mr. Sattarov is handling the app designing himself, while the developers at Teknowledge are handling the coding requirements for the application. Mr. Fakhruddin has confirmed that over 70% of the work is already done, and several mockups of the app have been prepared.
Elaborating a bit on the nature of the new iPhone application, the CEO of Teknowledge referred to Veeaie as a 'freemium app that blends fun and creativity.' There will be six different emoji packs available for purchase in the app for users. Both Mr. Sattarov and Mr. Fakhruddin believe that people will love all the packs. 'Drama' and 'Athletes' have been picked out as the categories that will become the most popular.
Those in charge of creating this iOS 8 app are focusing on making Veeaie uniformly user-friendly. Showcasing a prototype of the application, Mr. Fakhruddin pointed out how an 'instructions screen' would be displayed to first-time users (after they have installed and activated Veeaie). The controls and in-app navigation have that feel of simplicity and elegance that virtually every Teks apps is known for. The creative expertise of Mr. Sattarov has definitely been a big help in this regard.
The best feature of the soon-to-be-released app was revealed at the very last, during the press meet. Users of Veeaie would get the opportunity of creating their very own emojis - instead of purchasing the readymade emoji sticker packs. All that they have to do is take a circular selfie, crop out unwanted portions (by rubbing the screen), and then, play around with four different camera effects. Some screenshots of these user-created emojis were displayed at the event - they were indeed hilarious!
Enhanced usability of the purchased/created emojis is going to be one of the high points of Veeaie Keyboard app. The iPhone app development department of Teknowledge has been instructed to include seamless Facebook, Instagram and Google Plus integration in the app. People will be able to save their emojis as 'favorites', and use them anywhere - online and offline.
Both Mr. Sattarov and Mr. Fakhruddin are bullish about the prospects of Veeaie, when it releases at the App Store. The two professionals believe that the sheer fun quotient of the app would make it a winner among young users - while the creative features would further bolster the app's charm. If everything goes as anticipated, this one can turn out to be one of the best entries in the app development portfolio of Teknowledge Software.
So, how many awards and positive reviews will Veeaie Keyboard rack up? The head of the mobile app company remained non-committal on that. All that he has to say regarding this is, if people indeed like the features of the app, awards and recognitions will follow. One thing is fairly certain though - the initial download figures of this iOS emoji keyboard app will be impressive.
Before signing off, Mr. Fakhruddin reiterated that his company would continue to work on app projects that have a touch of innovativeness in them. Veeaie would provide him and his team of app developers plenty of scope to showcase their expertise. We will have to wait and see how good the app actually turns out to be.
