Scope of Work: Mobile app development, frontend, backend.
Gitter is a communication platform for engineering communities and teams on GitHub. GitterMobile is an unofficial Gitter mobile client for iOS and Android built with ReactNative. Unfortunately, we noticed unsatisfactory performance of official Gitter mobile client and exactly this triggered us to develop a better version.
We've decided to create a React Native-based unofficial Gitter mobile app to check out React Native, a newly emerged technology back in 2015, as a framework for development and make sure that this technology is capable of building as well-performant mobile apps, as the native ones.
Our tasks were:
- Build a real-time messaging mobile platform with React Native
- Add all the essential for messaging app features, such as edit/delete message, person mention, chatrooms, search messages, people, etc.
- Keep to the official Gitter style and identity
- Make the project open-source, so others can contribute to it

We've carried out an open-source React Native-based Gitter mobile client, so anyone can improve and modify it. We are constantly working on this project and believe that it will come in useful for development communities all over the globe. You can test the app and download it from our GitHub repository for your Android device.
