IMFO needed a camera-enabled interface to engage and encourage their users to add visual reviews of the places they visit. The reviewing process was to be kept simple and minimal so users could browse through existing reviews in a quick glance.

Virtual Force joined IMFO from the initial ideation stage up till the completion of the iOS app. By integrating Custom Cam and Google Places, VF provided IMFO with the technology to offer a Snapchat-like experience on their reviewing app. The UI/UX is familiar for all users who have used Snapchat and Yelp to share photos, videos, and review. The VF team created an easy-to-use minimal interface for maximum user engagement.
