Folx – the first in-app mobile network operator

I helped Folx to introduce the first mobile network operator solely in an app. As part of the project, native mobile applications for iOS and Android were created featuring full on-boarding, identity confirmation, payments, self-care and customer support. Another Uber-Driver-like application was developed to allow SIM card delivery in up to 15 minutes since the request.
