The NBA playoffs take longer than it took us to redesign and launch a fresh new app for this iconic Los Angeles arena.

with blend.

When Los Angeles’s most iconic sports entertainment venue needed its native mobile app overhauled and launched back into the market within weeks of project kickoff, they called upon the Expedition Co. to execute. Seven weeks later, we submitted the new Staples Center app to the App Store and Google Play, and it was available for download 24 hours later.

For projects like this, which require an almost impossibly tight turnaround timeline, we employ an “all hands on deck” development approach. We define 100% of the tasks to be completed, then break them up into micro-tickets that can be dispersed, completed, tested, then verified by individual team members before the project’s Dev Lead pushes them live.

Mobile first, mobile only.

With limited cross-platform requirements, the Expedition Co. was free to build native mobile apps supporting only the most popular smartphones on the market, which allowed us to focus on robust and dynamic navigation, content display, information layout, and animations that are only possible with the latest native app technology.
