The Swiff app is a New Zealand based mobile marketplace for service providers. The app enables users to search for local service providers in their area and connect with them via an in-app profile. The app uses location services to help the user find the nearby businesses, categorized according to the type of service they provide.
Professionals and service provider businesses can also sign up on the app, helping them to connect with customers directly. All the important details such as business type, contact information and area of operation can be added with each business profile in the app. The app has been built using React Native and AWS Simple Email Service has been employed for emails.
