London, United Kingdom, July 04, 2019 –(PR.com)– Whilst the focus on infographics and visualizations is key to information dissemination, problems have arisen with the ability of older handsets to handle these graphic-intensive approaches. The R&D team at adappt has been working hard to create modules to enable their apps to work on older handsets, as well as in areas with limited and patchy connectivity. The platform continues to support and extend the animated charts and complex interactive mapping that have been the mainstay of its presentation layer. Along with that, additional provision has been made for simplified lightweight graphics with pinch and zoom to access the finer details. Using appropriate compression and offline synchronization, this is a boost particularly for those working in rural areas.
Jon Anthony, Founder and CEO, explains, “We have built a reputation for creating live infographics, charts and interactive maps in our apps. However, all these features are of very little use if they are inaccessible in the developing world. With this in mind, we have spent over nine months creating custom lightweight modules which work offline, to support remote and rural health workers.”
The core focus has been to make these applications accessible on older devices. This is especially useful in developing countries, where healthcare challenges are significantly higher and access to technology is limited.
The next major platform release is scheduled for October 2019 in time for November, when traditionally many NGOs and health departments will release their annual updates.
OpenSource code for the platform can be seen on adappt studio on GitHub.
