Flexibility at its core

Our platform's functionality has been built in line with industry best practice and design guidelines. However, it is possible to extend or replace every screen to produce something more bespoke. Here are some examples of custom requirements that we have already implemented and which are easy to use for you:

  • img
    Custom UI elements and UX features
  • img
    Custom fonts and styles
  • img
    Native Ads via Google SDKs (Admob or DFP) or other ad providers
  • img
    Connect to a custom SSO (to manage user access)
  • img
    Third party SDK integrations for pushes or tracking

You can implement these custom features on your own on the basis of our code. Or we can handle that for you in separate branches, where you enjoy full freedom. In any case you will benefit from future improvement and technical developments of our core platform.
