The only app of its kind, ‘The Adventures of Biker Jack’ iPhone and Android app was commissioned by Staffordshire Safer Roads Partnership, in association with Staffordshire County Council, with the aim of reducing motorcycle casualties on our roads. Designed for young motorcyclists, the app provides information on how to stay safe, together with information on the use of protective gear. The highlight however are the 8 episodes of ‘The Adventures of Biker Jack’ each with a different road safety topic, and we will be pushing new video content to the app as it’s released.
Other key features include push notifications, the ability to store emergency contact information, an in-app GPS used to locate your position, information on what to do in the event of an accident and an online version of the app for Windows and Blackberry users.
The app was built using HTML 5 and AngularJS and packaged in native iOS and Android shells, which allowed us to create a cross-platform app at a fraction of the cost of two native apps, helping our client meet their budget restrictions. For the best results we recommend apps are built natively for each platform, but if budget is an issue and a cross-platform development is key, then HTML/AngularJS apps are a great alternative.
