After designing the UI at front end, developing the application and integrating the APIs, the end product proved to be the perfect solution for the client’s requirement.

A few of almost 140+ APIs, we used the following important APIs in the app:

  1. Facebook
    The user can log into the app by signing up using their Facebook account for their personal profile consisting of their pictures and the “About You” section that could be edited as per user’s wish.
  2. LinkedIn
    The user can sync with their LinkedIn account to reflect their professional profile including their professional roles in the past, their skills and their educational qualifications.
