Land App provides a platform for land owners to manage and track their land. Used by land owners, farmers, farm advisors, land agents, ecologists and surveyors, Land App provides technology to simplify the management and tracking of spaces.
The client challenged us to design a new mobile app that would release land owners from their desks. The app needed to compliment the web app and provide new functionality exclusive to the mobile app that would enable on-the-go measurement, management and tracking of land.

The onboarding experience
We created a sign up and onboarding process that included a number of splash screens to demonstrate the key functionality and how to get started with the app. Our UX Designers collaborated closely with the Land App team to streamline the transition from desktop app to mobile app, creating an omni-channel experience.
Creation of maps
Users can create new maps and tag locations with tasks and images. They can assign users to tasks and projects, then track when assigned tasks are completed.
Cross device user experience
The mobile app syncs with the desktop app, ensuring that data gathered live on the land is available in the broader platform.
Design to development collaboration
We collaborated closely with Land App’s mobile developers to ensure that the data was structured correctly and synchronised with the web app.
“The app is going live very soon, and we’re very happy with the UX design. We’ve shown it to a few customers, who’ve been impressed. All the designs were created with technical feasibility in mind, which shows.
Plug & Play collaborated seamlessly with the other companies that were involved in the project. We were nervous about the project because it was a big challenge, and Plug & Play made the process easy. They also quickly understood our use cases and adapted quickly to learn what we needed. Overall, we had a very positive experience working with them.”
