LAS VEGAS, Aug. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Wahrheit Ventures announced the release of its first mobile application, City Vs City. The mobile app is the first cost of living calculator with patent-pending technology that enables users to fully account for their standard of living when computing how much their current spending habits would cost in a different U.S. city (explainer video).
The launch of the application has seen strong initial results and is receiving positive feedback from new users. Particularly popular is how the app transforms the typically mundane process of data entry into an engaging and enjoyable experience. This was a major objective for the design of the user interface, which drew inspiration from gaming apps. Wahrheit assembled a global team of contractors through the Upwork platform to execute its vision for the gaming design, as well as the development of the frontend and backend of the application.
Another feature typically reserved for gaming applications is a virtual currency, which can be spent to unlock additional features, such as the ability to compare more than one city. Users win these "coins" for entering their spending data or for participating in rewarded advertisements. They can also be purchased through In-App purchases. This virtual currency is managed by TapJoy.
The real ingenuity behind the City Vs City app is the algorithm that performs the computations unlike any other cost of living calculator on the market. The result is that a user's biggest expenses (housing and taxes in particular) are accounted for with a much higher degree of precision. Specifically, the calculation of what the user's cost of housing would be in a different city is a major advancement over the status quo that uses median prices of wide metropolitan areas instead of at the ZIP code level.
Needless to say, Wahrheit Ventures is pleased with the successful launch of City Vs City, and is looking forward to releasing a number of enhancements in the near future that will further distinguish the app from other cost of living calculators.
