Coinstar

Turn loose change into spending money without having to sort, roll, and take it to the bank

Concept Behind Coinstar

Founded in 1991, Coinstar is a one-of-its-kind concept, which turns all the loose change into cash through its kiosk. Now, they are working with more than 20,000 kiosks in different countries and have already marked a 1 billionth transaction.

Problem Statement

Technical Challenges

    To plugin with third parties library with both the platform, Android and iOS, is a task to cut for us.

  • image

    In React Native, maps are managed by a third-party library for both platform iOS and Android, which is not the case with Native apps. So it was difficult to manage the functionality of maps with native apps.

    In that scenario, the library compatible with iOS was not working with Android. Additionally, the loading time of the map location was slow because of the massive number of 20,000 kiosks.

Deliverables on problem statement

Our developers put a limit on APIs to decrease the loading time of results, and for more refined results, we restricted the map locations results to the count of 10 so that the users can only get the relevant results as per their location.
