A Brief Introduction

Bitt Smart Book is the official app for the world’s first augmented reality memoir titled:  Butterflies in the Trenches by award-winning author, Curtis Carmichael. The app allows the reader to interact with the book to give them a whole new AR reading experience.

Challenges That We Faced at the Start

Bitt Smart Book pushes on the idea of bringing the characters and moments in the book to life. And how to do that? Use augmented reality! The client requested an app that could scan the pages of the book to play videos in AR. While the idea is brilliant, the client already had an iOS app and wanted our team to create an Android app for the same purpose. However, recreating the same app Android posed its challenges.

Scan Speed

The app must scan the images in the book and must do that quickly. We registered the early scan speed of 15 seconds but we needed to work on bringing this time down.

App Size on Play Store

According to the Google play store policies, we cannot upload an app above 200MB. But our app was between 550-600MB, hence, we had to work with Google Play Asset delivery to shrink the app size.

#

Multithreading

Bitt Smart Book app’s purpose is to scan, run AR, and play video simultaneously. It required careful integration so that the app could function optimally and without any lag.

Our Solution

Replicating an app that exists in iOS for Android is a challenging task. Since both the platforms present their banes and boons, app replication can pose a serious task. However, our team persevered and devised a solution for the app.

  • Decreased app size

    Since the app size fell between 550 to 600 mb, we utilized Google Play’s Asset Delivery. It allows the core app to be downloaded first, while the predefined videos are fetched separately during installation. This way, all the assets are also downloaded with the app while ensuring appropriate user experience.

  • Quick Scan

    During development, the android app was taking approximately 15 seconds of average time to scan the image and play the video. After we optimized the code, applied multithreading, we brought down the time for scan to five seconds.

Excellent Features that Shape Bitt Smart Book

Our developers studied market status and audience response to understand and create a one-of-a-kind solution. Each feature adds to the quality of the app and creates a cohesive environment. This enables users to freely interact with Bitt Smart Book and exploit its capabilities.

  • portfolio-grid-banner
    Scan & Map

    The app can scan text images and dynamically map the corresponding video content onto the exact coordinates of the scanned image.

  • portfolio-grid-banner
    Dynamic Scaling

    The overlaid video will adjust proportionally to the scanned image irrespective of movement or shake to maintain accurate alignment.

  • portfolio-grid-banner
    Focus Tracking

    If the textbook image falls outside the camera’s focus, the video playback will pause automatically. Once the image falls back in focus, the video will resume.

  • portfolio-grid-banner
    Persistent Playback

    Given the app is not closed, it will resume the last video played during the previous session. Any session will end once the user exits the app.
