Bangalore, Karnataka, India, 2010/04/29 - Sonata Software, a leading IT consulting and software services provider, today announced that it has developed a fashion and social networking application for Golirious, LLC, a mobile software development company in the United States.
Aptly called “Love it or Lose it,” the application allows Apple iPhone users to instantly connect with their friends and community members and request (and receive) feedback on fashion merchandises.
The user-friendly application allows iPhone users to click photos of clothes or accessories while they are shopping and share them instantly with their friends. It allows the recipients to rate each photo they see as either “Love it,” “Like it” or “Lose it” and send their feedback immediately. The application also facilitates collection of photographs of favourite items to create a “Wish List.” Other key features include adding friends and viewing their profiles including their wish lists, getting help in finding gifts for “hard to shop for” friends, adding favorite stores and designers. The “Push Notification” feature enables the users to know instantly when someone wants their feedback on a fashion choice, even when they are not in the “Love it or Lose it” application.
Commenting on their first offering for mobile phone platforms, Mr. Anand Venkatrao, President, Golirious LLC, said, “We wanted to build an application that can allow shoppers to get feedback instantly from their friends on clothes or accessories which they intend to buy. These are the opinions that count when you are wondering what to buy or wear. The highly skilled and forward-thinking team at Sonata Software demonstrated real ownership and commitment in the fast-track development of the application. “Love it or Lose it” acts as the perfect shopping companion for Apple iPhone users.”
“At Golirious, our objective is to come up with fun, yet practical mobile applications that can help the users get some cool things done on the go,” Mr. Venkatrao further added.
Mr. Aniruddha Banerjee, Head - Technology Services Business, Sonata Software Ltd., said, “For the last several years, our experience in designing enterprise products and our deep understanding of end-user functional requirements has enabled us to jointly develop products with clients even when the specifications are simply “concepts”. Our expertise in writing applications for mobile and hand-held devices, and creating value added solutions for various mobile technologies helped us come up with this innovative and practical application for Golirious within 3 months. This lifestyle application can run on high-end mobile devices supported by a backend server, enabling prospective buyers to solicit opinions from their network of friends and associates, on specific products prior to their purchase.”
