Build a Ridesharing App with Digital Signing and Mobile PDF Viewer

It has been estimated that by 2030, private car ownership in the U.S. will drop by more than 80%. With the EU also on track to ban the production of combustion powered vehicles by 2035, it’s easy to see that the future of transport will be electric. Electric vehicles powered by ridesharing apps that is. Join this live build to discover how you can create a frictionless ridesharing app from start to finish with the Mendix Platform.

You’ll learn how to create a smooth process flow from scanning important documents using the document scanner to using navigation and map features. This includes the signature widget to capture real signatures on a mobile device or touch screen and embed them in a PDF document. Finally, we’ll dig into managing your native mobile dependencies when building your app for testing and live environments.

In this live build, learn how you can:

  • Sign documents using a pluggable widget
  • View PDFs in a native mobile application
  • Manage native mobile dependencies for JavaScript
  • Use maps to display a list of vehicles for users to choose from
  • Scan and upload documents using the document scanner
