Client: SPAR


  • Objective-C
  • Java
  • PHP
  • Zend Framework 1


Even though SPAR had apps in other countries, Spar Denmark was lacking one. So we were approached to develop such apps for both iOS and Android.

It was a big project, since we had to work on several fronts:

  • Web server – for the back-end to supply data to the apps
  • Webapp – available online without the need for installing apps
  • iOS app
  • Android app

The two apps are pretty nice, but they wouldn’t be what they are without the back-end webservice and its custom CMS we have created to serve the proper data. Some of the cool things it does:

  • Integrates with RSS feed of SPAR to serve the weekly catalogues with SPAR’s offers into the apps
  • Offers management of push notifications to send to all the app users
  • Offers creation of in-app banners with image and/or video content
  • Manage gift vouchers that users can get in the apps and use in one of SPAR’s stores

The apps themselves feature a lot of things:

  • Catalogues browsing
  • Recipes – with calculator for quantities depending on for how many you are cooking
  • Shop locator
  • Shopping list section
  • Receipts and expenses section
  • Barcode scanning
  • Newsletter subscription
