IT Trade Online for iOS & Android


For the iOS app: iOS 8+, SQLite, XML, GreenDAO ORM
For the Android app: Android SDK, Sqlite, REST Web Service


IT equipment trading / reclaiming is a B2B marketplace for computer brokers, computer wholesalers, resellers, liquidators and manufacturers. The IT Trade Online database contains multiple features and users, offering a safe trade environment for both buyers and brokers of bulk computer parts.

As the project grew, it became necessary to develop both an Android and an iOS application, to enable users to check their accounts and easily and conveniently perform on their mobile devices all of the functions available on the desktop version.

We reproduced the website’s core functionalities within the mobile apps: broadcast, inventory, conversations and compose broadcast. The users can also search within the data in each of the content categories.


Broadcast Section: enables users to create a broadcast and publish it on the platform, where it will be visible to all users right away. Users can view the most recent broadcasts or search for those that meet their specific criteria

Conversations Section: allows users to directly contact other members on the platform

Inventory Section: facilitates search by part number and manufacturer and contacting members whose posts are tagged with the part number that the users is interested in

For the interaction between the mobile application and the website we used a REST API developed in ASP.NET. The iOS application is developed in XCode and iOS SDK. The technologies that we used for the Android app were: Android SDK, Java, XML, HTTP requests, access to the device’s local APIs (phone calls, taking pictures with the phone’s camera).
We’ve updated the apps’ design to stay up to date with current trends.
