Challenge

SK Mobile is the largest on-line music portal in Korea. At first glance, MelOn functions much like iTunes, but was actually one of the first services to embrace the concept of ubiquitous music delivered to any device. SK Mobile came to Intertech seeking assistance in moving their current prototype, m.melon.com, to a jQuery Mobile and HTML5 solution. Great emphasis was placed on visual transitions between list views and page navigation. Then, due to Appleʼs iconic page turn being trademarked halfway through the project, our developers had to adjust the album view transition style to look less like the Appleʼs. Most companies would have had to extend the deadline to make up for “lost work”, due to the trademark issues. Intertech, however, was able to deliver a solution on time and within budget. 

Process

Intertech utilized numerous forms of communications to keep the project on track, including; Skype, conference calls, emails, daily huddles, and screenshare. Despite the relatively short project timeline and last minute changes needed, due to unforeseen trademark issues, Intertech was able to quickly adjust to new requests from the client throughout the duration of the project by using the proven agile process. Intertech also leveraged HTML5 and the jQuery Mobile web framework to effectively deliver on MelOnʼs new mobile web application. The application included reusable templates for each page type, a custom animated album view, a slim global JavaScript library to handle device and browser capabilities, and various UI widgets.
