Life Education is a charity that educates and empowers children to make healthy choices so they can live full and healthy lives. Every year they teach over 250,000 children about their body, friendships, their identity, food and nutrition, and helpful and harmful substances.

The Life Ed Handset application is a tablet app that is used by the educator in the Life Ed trucks to control the onscreen experience – the Server application. At Mixt we were tasked with updating the existing Handset and Server applications to be have a more modern, work on a larger range of android tablets, have a more flexible setup that can have resources added and removed from a central server, and to fix up some long standing bugs and quirks.

We recreated the Handset application almost completely, keeping only a key few pieces of back-end code intact. While the server application was largely working, we did some code and asset cleanup, and reworked a lot of the networking code to become more stable and work with the newly created web API.
