About TV 2

TV 2 is a Norwegian television with headquarters in Bergen – the second-largest city in Norway. Established in 1991, where after a successful broadcasting attempt, one year later it became the first official commercial free-to-air television. For its viewers, it offers numerous channels such as entertainment, 24 hours news, sport, and lifestyle. According to TV 2 data, every single day 1.9 million people watch their channels.
In the past, we cooperate with TV 2 to help them realize their OTT platform, called TV 2 Play. You can check this case study here

Project Goal

The Norwegian word “Været” translated into English means weather, so the purpose of the project was clear…

Better Software Group was asked to work on the frontend of the application for mobile phones and web browsers to display current and forecast weather conditions, but also to include other functions and statistics. The weather in Norway can be very unpredictable, which is why such kinds of applications are very popular in their country.

Anyway, no one likes to get hit by the rain outside, while the umbrella is left at home because we didn’t check the weather forecast… So to stay always up to date we developed additionally a weather widget, that can be put on the screen of your phone.

General Problem

Our software developers are real experts in the field of Kotlin, Swift, and React technology, so the frontend development process went very smoothly and without any major problems. TV 2 provided us all the necessary designs and graphics. Most work and arrangements required the API integration process, but the experience gained in previous projects allowed us to finish the application in a fairly short time.
