International Rugby Organization in Ireland, the world governing and Law making body for the Game of Rugby Union.
To develop a video application
that will share with iPhone users rules of rugby game.
Rugby reference book covers game rules from how to play and forbidden maneuvers to referee signs and matters of arguments. We made the rugby rules available on iPhone. The main functionality of the application includes listed rugby rules (in
whole text and in video), custom design
, bookmarking the favorites, Multilanguage support.
As an old proverb says «Seeing is believing» we illustrated the rules with video explanations. Most of the videos are available on-line, these videos are ported to iPhone from the Internet. Some videos are stored on the device and are available off-line.
The video application isn't aimed to teach how to play rugby, it doesn't give any instructions. But it can be well applied in rugby clubs to learn the rules and by rugby referee to solve the matters of arguments. The application users will be pleasantly surprised by custom design and by complete set of rules with video explanations.
iOS 4, iOS 5, iOS6, iOS7, XML, MP4
The most challenging point of the project was that rugby rules have a very difficult hierarchy. We developed a ramified system with dozens of categories and subcategories plus we illustrated certain rules with video.
During the project we closely cooperated with our customer helping him to make a clear vision of what he want and providing the optimal solutions to reach the required result. We finished the work on time and in compliance with specifications. We carried the original rugby rules set to the iPhone application and let the application illustrate those rules with video. We hope this video application will make it easier for rugby fans to learn the rules of favorite game.
This experience helped our team to extend our skills of work with video and provided us with better understanding of rugby game. During this project we extended our knowledgebase about creating video applications for iPhone and learned some peculiarities which will help us during the next interesting projects and make our work even more efficient.
