Community Musician is an app for musicians to connect online and interact with musicians in other local communities. It gives communities a platform to express and pursue music, exchange tips on instruments and organize live shows.
The web based software product was to be an online community for students, teachers, artists honing their craft, performers on stage, musicians recording tracks and producers mixing the finished product. It was meant for connections and networking. As a result, Community Musician was on a lookout for a mobile app development company - and BluEnt stepped in to take this app development mandate.

The BluEnt Approach
As a custom app development project, we provided the Joomla 2.5. As a CMS, Joomla’s admin section allows the user to add or edit any content on the site easier. We created a quick registration process for the user.
We added a bar on the top of the header to indicate the profile completion percentage of the user. Once the user was logged in, he or she could navigate through the Brand Aide page. This section includes categories such instruments, vocalist, composers, rental drum sets, guitars and other areas of interest of the community. For the admin section, we made use of Joomla CMS for the Client Article section. In this section, the team behind Community Musician wanted to add equipment categories and related articles. We set it for front-end Brand Aide section. We created the Equipment Manager component which allows the admin to add and edit their equipment with other information. We created this for the equipment section through front-end. We also created Space Manager component which allows the admin to add and edit their space with other information. We created this for space section through front-end.
