Open-source platform enables single developer to leverage frontend web development skills to create robust native mobile app for iOS and Android
Cubby Notes co-founder
"The fact that NativeScript enabled me to write and deploy native mobile
apps for iOS and Android from a single codebase was a big asset, since I
could use my existing web development knowledge and didn't need to learn
new programming languages for each platform," said
Initially, the app would enable the sharing of information between parent and caregiver - notes on feeding and napping, photos and more. But given the ease-of-use of the NativeScript framework and the support available through the NativeScript communities, such as Slack, Coffin was able to create additional features such as shift management, hours tracking, payment calculation and schedule planning for a better overall app experience and to better manage the caregiver process.
"Developing for both web and mobile is complex, often requiring
programmers to have specialized training or necessitating a sacrifice in
performance to get all versions of a product out the door," said
In addition to the benefits provided to both the parents and caregivers, the app also enables family members to register with the app for additional photo sharing and communication that is inherently more secure than standard social media channels. Since its initial launch, Daily Nanny has been downloaded by more than 350 families.
