Social App for Music Sharing
A React Native app for music sharing. I worked on both the front end and the back end. I implemented multiple social application features such as likes, comments, posts, following/unfollowing users, login with third parties (Apple, Facebook), and more. I integrated remote push notifications with Firebase and Apple Push Notification service and later built a real-time chat that was based on silent remote notifications. I also integrated the app with YouTube and Spotify such that users were able to share songs from directly to BMB, or they could search in the music provider's database. The shared song could be later opened in a specific music provider's app.
