Advantages of this approach
Creation of cloud stored information for download to mobile app
Kinetic Software and Microsoft teamed up to build a Xamarin.Forms revision of the StopJetLag app and a back end using Azure App Service coordinating with the Web Apps feature of App Service and Azure SQL Database to reduce the cost and management overhead of the applications required to create a customized jet lag plan for travelers.
The StopJetLag app gives travelers a customized jet lag plan on their mobile devices. It offers travelers the correct timing for scientific advice that makes beating jet lag as rapid and easy as possible. The solution leverages Azure App Service, both the Web Apps and API Apps features, to deliver jet lag advice to the mobile app, as well as a web admin portal with a database API layer to edit trip notes for the StopJetLag plan. The Azure SQL database is also manipulated from the processing of StopJetLag order information during the creation of the StopJetLag plan by the Windows Presentation Foundation implementation of the StopJetLag expert system.Read the Technical Case Study
