Once user unlocks the Achiever by purchasing the monthly subscription, they can view a quick guide for Habits, Nutrition, and Steps. On the home screen, users can see their overall progress for Habits, Nutrition, and Steps in a dashboard. The progress tracker will let users know at which level they are currently. It will also show motivational quotes to get the user started on the right track.
At each level, there are a set number of days to complete the Habits, Nutrition, and Steps. By completing all three circles for Habits, Nutrition, and Steps, the user will progress to the next level.
As users advance through the levels, the number of days and steps will consistently increase, and the tasks will become increasingly challenging. In addition, users can see if they have completed their Habits, Nutrition, and Steps for the day on the home screen.
Achiever will help users develop healthy habits to meet their fitness goals. Users will also gain a better understanding of their bodies and health. Users' daily routine is responsible for their health transformation, and it is determined by user habits, both the good and the bad.

Tracking users' nutrition has so many benefits, from helping to manage food intolerances to increasing energy, avoiding mood changes, and fueling the rhythms of their day.
Achievers' balanced nutritional program is based on the principle that the best program is one that users enjoy following long-term.
Users will get portion control guidance like; Caffeine which is recommended maximum amount of caffeine to consume each day is 400 mg (500ml of coffee). Carbohydrates, fruit, healthy fat, protein, vegetables, water, and more nutrition.

Users of Achiever use daily steps as a practical, accessible, and efficient way to move every day. Walking can be done every day as part of their routine. Despite being underrated as a form of exercise, it is extremely beneficial to do it as often as a user can.

We are listening to our customers and thrive to cover all open questions and demystify software development processes and technologies behind it. Enjoy exploring some of the topics in our blog categories below.
Native App Development is the creation of software programs that run on specific devices and platforms. Users can build beautiful native apps for target devices-smartphones.
Our team used the Laravel framework for backend development. In order to prevent hackers from injecting harmful code into the server or databases, the system architecture played an important role. For the database, we used MySQL, which is widely accepted and offers atomic consistency with go-to solutions for data integrity. We developed APIs for accessing user levels, daily habits, and nutrition from the server to the user interface.
Lottie has been integrated for goal completion animations. The Lottie animation file format makes it easy to ship animations across platforms as easily as static assets.
AnLongTapButton integrates a long tap button with an animated progress bar, which is used to animate button taps and holds.
Using ConfettiView, we created a wonderful confetti view for our application. We've integrated ConfettiView so users can enjoy fun animated confetti views on the go to make successful moments more enjoyable for them.
Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM) allows users to send and receive messages and notifications from iOS, Android, and the web in a reliable and battery-efficient manner. Firebase has been integrated to deliver notifications immediately or at a future time in the user's local time zone. Set custom data, sounds, and expiration dates, as well as track custom conversion events.
Alamofire is a Swift-based HTTP networking library for iOS and macOS. Alamofire is integrated into the core of the system by URLSession and URLSessionTask subclasses. It wraps these APIs, along with many others, in a user-friendly interface and provides a variety of functionality needed for Achiever App development over HTTP.
In-app purchases provide a consistent and safe experience supported by world-class commerce and payment systems, allowing users to manage their subscriptions and purchases over time. We have added Apple ID for quick payments in 45 currencies, using payment methods associated with their Apple ID, which supports nearly 200 payment methods, including Apple Pay, credit or debit cards, store credit, region-specific methods, and more.
With the upcoming challenges, users will be more engaged with their daily goals. Admin can keep notifying them if they don't open or use the app within 24 hours. Also, the admin can view the total active users and export the invoice, charts, and analytics of the application.
We faced challenges while implementing In-App Purchase with promo code, free trial period, and redeem offer. Users can unlock the Achiever App by purchasing a subscription. They will have 14 days free trial after purchase.
Subscription offers unique and alphanumeric promo codes that provide free or discounted prices for auto-renewable subscriptions. Customers can redeem offer codes on the App Store. We had implemented In-App Purchase in many projects before but hadn't had experience with trial periods and redeem offers.
To solve this issue we accomplished some researches to find best practices to implement a meaningful solution. We got to know that Apple provides the offer time in the receipt as well as with the product data. When a customer successfully redeems a subscription offer code, the receipt is generated for the customer. So, we directly fetch offer time from product data without using any 3rd party for this implementation. This way, we implemented IAP easily and successfully.
Another challenge we faced while working on Achiever was implementing Health-kit to get step data. Health kit data was easy to fetch from the health app but the challenge was we needed to sync this data with the backend and also manage the levels.
To solve this challenge, we read relevant documents on StackOverflow and created our own easy-to-maintain API. This helped us sync our data and manage the performance level for our users.
With a “Never Give Up” attitude and the motto of “Client&User Happiness”, the challenges were no more than a few enjoyable moments for us.
One of the most special functions is tracking health progress.
Our solution makes it easy for anyone at any level to become part of the Achiever community and to stay healthy. By using helpful hints and daily goals, users can easily keep track of Habits, Nutrition, and Steps.
The home screen displays progress in percentages. There is a circle for every Habits, Nutrition, and Steps. As an example, if the user progressed 4% in steps, 5% in nutrition, and 3% in habits, the app would fill a 4% circle out of 100% for steps, 5% for nutrition, and 3% for habits. Users can also share statistics images. Additionally, it shows the view of a man standing on a horizontal line at 12% out of 100%. Furthermore, it shows the user's current level out of all levels. In this way, the users have an idea of how many levels remain, and it gives them the motivation to stick to their Habits, Nutrition, and Steps goals.
Users can see how many days they have followed their habit each time they mark a goal as completed. By submitting one of the happy, neutral, or sad emojis, users can share their habit completion experience. In the graph, the app shows completed total steps, average steps per day, and steps per week.
It was really special to us to design the user interface of the application intuitively and simply. We also wanted it to be simple enough for anyone who wants to achieve their goals. That's why we took a very straightforward approach with this app! Developing Achiever has been a very special journey, and we also had a great collaboration with our client.
We realized the customer's and our dream to make millions of users healthier. Another dream we made come true. We can't wait for what's next!
