What is the challenge?
Celebrity app was a booming trend in 2014, quickly taking the celebrity world by storm and attracting numerous A-list stars to launch their own inclusive platform where they interact with their fans. Many of these apps were short-lived, however, waning as fast as they emerged.
Within the year 2019, some high profile deletions took place, with both the Kardashians and Taylor Swift announcing to shut down their apps.
So what makes Australian model-turned-businesswoman Jensita Franklin decide to launch her own mobile app?
The answer lies in her struggle to have a deeper connection with her fans on traditional platforms such as Facebook or Instagram over which she’s unable to have complete control.
Between the frustration of shallow interactions that don’t go beyond pretty pictures and videos and the desperate want for substance in her online presence, Jesinta Franklin came into life as the remedy for meaningful celebrity-fan interactions, crafted by the creative and dedicated team of Savvycom developers combined with the use of leading-edge technologies.
A solution for Jesinta to connect with her fan is an app
We create Jesinta Franklin to provide a personalised platform where Jesinta shares her self-developed content that is otherwise hard to access on mainstream social media platforms. As for the users, we work to make sure that they have the best experience using the app with intuitive design and smooth app performance. The app enables many useful functions such as user profile, user subscription, push notifications, email updates, story and quote management.
Jesinta is built on both iOS (version 9.0 to 12 supported) and Android (version 5.0 to 9.0 supported), ensuring its seamless functioning across both platforms. The Admin dashboard is a web application which supports IE11, Firefox and Chrome. The combination of NodeJS and MySQL offers quick processing, proven reliability, ease and flexibility of use.
The interface is designed such that it represents Jesinta in every way: simple yet elegant, with a touch of modern flair. The simplistic layout ensures ease of navigation for users. Every element of the design is carefully brought together, giving users the impression that they’re leafing through a lifestyle magazine.
