The Pocket Mentor App
The pocket mentor fills the mental strength gap and support missing from our education
The Pocket Mentor
Fortem Digital were approached by The Pocket Mentor after the company they had been working with hadn’t been able to deliver what they were looking for in developing a fully operational lifestyle mental health wellness app. They came to us via recommendation.
Design and app development
Due to the development work involved in creating this app, we worked with the client over a period of 6 months. We had various meetings with the client to understand their business and their target market, and precisely what they wanted the app to include and how it was to function. The app is designed to provide users with a mental health wellbeing app, and provides the ability to record daily feelings, and also self-help videos, which can be filtered by mood.
The starting point was designing the visual of the app, in a design and style that would appeal to users, those who are looking for an interactive mental health and wellbeing app. Once the overall design was agreed, the experienced development team went on to develop the app ensuring full functionality.
Testing the app
The initial version of the app was trialled and tested by a user group, so developments were made and tweaked taking into account the user’s journey on the app, the overall experience, and feedback. The final version of the app was then test prior to launch.
We’re delighted to have launched the app on both the App Store and Google Play Store.
"Fortem Digital rescued us from a challenging situation with previous developers, taking us from despair to hopeful. From here, Ricky and Andy went above and beyond to help us scope the project to build a minimal viable product.
When we met funding challenges during the first lockdown, they helped us steer the project to receive grant funding, so we were able to continue. Throughout the design and development process, Ricky, Andy and their team have communicated clearly and quickly, using their expertise they've responded honestly and positively challenged us to help build a robust platform.
Their commitment in designing and developing our Pocket Mentor web platform and native iOS and Android apps, has enabled us to build a thriving business with a really exciting future. Ricky and Andy feel very much part of our Pocket Mentor team, and their support has exceeded expectations."
