Brand

D’Marie had a unique idea to get social statistics from Instagram as well as from Facebook and Twitter through mobile.  the mobile app helps to post the credit to Instagram and grab the social statistics from it. Also one can able to post the credits to Facebook and Twitter. While tagging the sponsored link to the image with the exact coordinate points irrespective of any image sizes, device as well as web to display.

Challenges

We did not use any third party library to calculate the exact tagged coordinate points of the sponsored links in an image. We developed our own logic to get the exact points. We calculated the the aspect ratio of the tagged point with respect to the image size and the image view size. Then we generated the x coordinate and y coordinate points. We sent all these data to server and in web that image have the exact tagged points for the sponsored links.

We delivered our works in a timely manner with quality code to the customer.

Solutions

In D’Marie, We integrated InstagramKit library in the project and allowed the app to authenticate and post the credit to Instagram. The InstagramKit doesn’t provide the facility to post the credit directly. So, we used OpenUrl functionality, through which we navigated to Instagram App with copied the text using UIPasteboard available in UIKit Framework and post the credit to the available Instagram app.

We developed our own logic to achieve the sponsored link tagging to an image with exact coordinate points irrespective of any image sizes.

Results Obtained

We achieved the credit post and got social statistics from Instagram with the use of Instagram Kit. This mobile app post the credit to Instagram and web to got the social statistics from the Instagram and also backend API endpoints as required for some functionalities.
