CityLink App wins Gold App Design Award

We are super excited to announce that last week, our work with Transurban on the CityLink iOS app won a Gold App Design Award at the design100 World App Design Awards.

The purpose of the CityLink iOS app is to empower customers to make simple transactions quickly and easily, anywhere and anytime. This includes making payments, managing account details and managing vehicles registered to the account.

To ensure that the app is as user friendly as possible, we conducted multiple rounds of user testing with CityLink customers during every stage of the project. This included testing paper prototypes, wireframes, visual designs and prototypes.

The result is an additional channel for customer interactions, that enables Transurban to provide greater and more convenient customer service.

A number of innovative technologies have been used on this app. The app is written in Swift, the new Apple programming language for the iOS platform. The app also allows users to scan their credit card by taking a photo of the card, automatically pre-filling the required data fields, instead of requiring the user to enter it manually.

The CityLink iOS app allows users to:

  • Set up auto top ups
  • Swipe to make a quick payment
  • Scan credit card to enter details and save for future quick use
  • View and update account details
  • View and add vehicles to account
  • View e-TAGs associated with account
  • Receive notifications and prompts when account balance is low

We are continuing to work with Transurban on the CityLink app product roadmap to add more high value features to enhance the CityLink customer experience through mobile.

We also picked up a stack of Silver awards for:

Thanks to everyone who worked on these projects. They are all great examples of how we work towards our vision of making a difference through creating mobile experiences that are intuitive, effective and engaging.



Google I/O Extended Feature Image

As creators of mobile software, we get incredibly excited at this time of year. We’re passionate about technology and love getting together with the wider community of designers, developers, testers and other technology enthusiasts to talk about all the exciting new announcements.

That’s why we’re really excited to host our first Google I/O Extended event in Melbourne. We’re bringing together the local Android development and design community to share in our excitement and to discuss and explore what’s new in Android.

Together we will watch a recap of the keynote, while enjoying some pizza and drinks. If you’re super keen, bring your laptop along and we’ll explore any new development kits that are made available and maybe hack together some fun projects.
