Challenge

The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) requested to update the official mobile app LPGA Now and introduce significant changes to its functionality.

Cogniteq tasks included the creation of a new design, improvement of the user interface and development of new features.

Cogniteq team built both iOS and Android versions of the app.

Solution

Our mobile engineers redeveloped the functionality of LPGA Now almost completely.

We created the possibility to get instant access to real-time tournament scoring, news, photos, videos, rankings and player statistics.

  • Scores
    Users can view live scores and tournament results.
  • Rankings
    This screen shows the latest rankings of the players on the CME Globe, Rolex, and Rolex Annika Major Award.
  • News & Video
    Our developers created a large gallery with different types of content categorized into News, Videos and Photos.

    Videos are uploaded to the application from the LPGA website. We used the WebView component to ensure the integration of the app with the web page and the correct video playback.
  • Players & Favorites
    Cogniteq mobile changed this piece of functionality. Users can now choose favorite golf players, follow them in the application and track their activity via the app. Bio and stats of each LPGA member are available as well.

    Cogniteq also integrated the push notification feature. When the info of the favorite player is updated the user receives a notification.
  • Stats
    Users can get the info about each player of the LPGA.
  • #LPGANOW
    We synchronized the app with the official LPGA Twitter account. App users can read tweets from the Association directly in the app.
