Fjallraven Live Instagram Feed

4/3/14

I love it when a client asks for something that you don’t see every day. Fjallraven recently launched their flagship stores in Boulder and New York and they wanted to integrate their Instagram account with the event. They asked us to create a live feed where guests could tag their photos with #fjallravenUSA and have them show instantly on their huge screens.

When we heard this project, we didn’t even know if it was possible, but luckily Instagram already had this functionality built into their API. We built the app to listen to the live feed and show a new image if there was one, or loop through the images we already had.

Although we only had a day or so to make this happen, we launched the app in time for the grand opening, making their event much more social.

I reached out to Buink after finding Ben’s name in a local developer/consultant listing in 2017, and I have to say, it has been an absolute pleasure to work with Buink. Ben consistently understands not just the development task laid in front of him but the business application behind the task. I’ve... never felt more comfortable with a development team than I do with Buink. I truly feel Ben and his team are integral partners in the success of my business.read more

I could not recommend Buink Web Development more highly. Ben and his team have recently developed a budgeting app for me (both web and IOS). I have had the opportunity of working with them for over a year and I am extremely happy with the results.I would say that the biggest plus for me is that I... trust Ben completely. From the very first, Ben has helped me make decisions that were in the best interest of my company. I have never felt like he is taking advantage of me. Ben does his best to keep the whole process very open and upfront. I have really appreciated that.I tell people all the time that I love my developers. And I do. I'm very happy that I chose to use Buink to develop my apps. It was the best business decision I could have made.If you are looking for someone to develop a website or app, I strongly suggest choosing Buink Web Development. They are fantastic!Marilyn Ference, President, Defend Your Money, LLCread more
