Trailr was developed in 2012 during LTU’s “innovation days” when employees are free to work on pet projects.
This was the occasion for us to start using our own image recognition technologies.
We pull information about movies each night from TMDb, put it on our database with all the posters, and then do simple requests on our servers via our mobile apps.
I started the project and developed the iPhone app. My coworker (whom I started the project with) did all the backend work (data sync, database, server).
At a later stage, another coworker developed an Android app and a chrome extension.
