appschef mobile app development project artistfan


It is fun to listen to new music, especially if we can be acquainted with real singers from our favorite songs. Thus, `Artistfan` site is made. Our client came to Appschef to develop an online music network for artists. The web application is an intuitive system that combines e-commerce, social media, direct marketing, and live streaming technologies in one easy-to-use platform. Users can watch their favorite videos, view live stream performances; take a piano lesson, and many more. The recording industry is not what it once was. Labels are not signing acts at the volume they once did, which means artists have to work harder to realize their dreams. Our client invention makes it easier for artists, especially those trying to break into the industry, by providing them with an even playing field for content distribution.

Appschef developed the application with existing application built with PHP 5.3, customized cakePHP framework, MySQL database server, and Cron task scheduler. For back-end, the application uses FFMPEG, Curl, third party video, audio encoder & CDN, third party live stream encoder, third party payment credit card processor, and third party social media. Protocol used are HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, and RTMP. For the front-end, the application uses JQuery, Javascript framework, responsive foundation CSS framework, compass SASS, masonry, JWPlayer for flash, HTML5, and Flash IO for live streaming.
