Pocket Sergeant 2.0 was a full remake of the original Pocket Sergeant app that I previously made. The core aim of this version was to allow the app’s content to always be as up to date as possible, without having to push updates through Play Store / App Store.
“This is definitely a must have for UK Cops regardless of role. I consider it my UK policing equivalent of The Hitchhiker’s guide to the Galaxy”
For this, I created a backend system for deploying content updates to the app, made using Laravel / PHP.
Content can be edited server side with a simple WYSIWYG interface, and then pushed live with the click of a button, being made available to users of the app instantly.
The app was created in Xamarin this time, providing a fluid, user-friendly & familiar native interface for both Android & iOS.
