PepUp is a social mobile game based on the user’s real-world, physical movements as measured by accelerometer and location data.
A PepUp user inputs her activity and receives activity coins based on the intensity level and then posts the results to Facebook. Players will not be able to fudge the results because they are based on smartphone accelerometer/geo data. Top achievers are ranked competitively on the pepup.me website.
PepUp beta for Android phones launched on April 5th, 2011

They needed an inexpensive, easy-to-manage solution for their new website and NTR developers suggested Joomla content management system.
Along with building the site, we tutored the staff on how to update information, so they can edit, change or remove content quickly and easily.
Two sections of the site are of special interest to true organ music-lovers, the first presenting music samples to listen to online, and the second featuring the creation of an organ at the Rufatti Factory and Organ Rebuilding.

The initial website was developed by a different outsourcer and contained multiple bugs and malfunctioning features.
The client’s priority task was to clean up and improve the code, as well as implement the new functionality. To do this we
- fixed bugs indicated by the client and others found by the NTR team;
- converted database-related calls to an object-oriented wrapper resulting in a fluid, data-centered collection of classes;
- increased protection to the system from SQL-injections;
- introduced page caching with Memcached that speeded up page load time and reduced database load;
- amended image storage structure, so that more files can be stored with substantially less stress to the server’s file system;
- integrated Userplane webmessenger;
- improved user’s session management;
- added search-by-interest function;
- improved “more like him/her” feature in the way that a CMS admin can manage the allowable variance of search parameters to broaden/narrow search results (matches);
- added periodic recalculation of matches with email notifications and RSS updates.
