The Challenge

During the development of Interactive E-Book application, several challenges were encountered. One of the significant challenges was customizing the folio reader kit to create a new library specifically designed for users. This customization was essential to provide a unique and tailored reading experience within the app. Another challenge involved implementing device authentication to ensure a fair usage policy. The application allows users to authorize up to five devices per account. Once the device limit is reached, users must deauthorize an existing device before logging in on a new one. This process ensures that the app can be used securely and prevents unauthorized access to users' accounts.

To ensure a fair usage policy, we implemented device authentication. Users were allowed to authorize up to five devices per account. We developed the device authentication feature, including generating unique device IDs, securely storing and validating device information, and managing the device authorization process. The feature was integrated into the application's login and account management workflows.

Extensive testing was conducted to verify the functionality and performance of the customized library and the device authentication feature. We tested various scenarios to ensure a smooth reading experience and proper device authorization and deauthorization.Once all development and testing activities were completed, we deployed and released the E-Book app on the desired platforms, such as mobile devices, tablets, and the web. We monitored the application's performance and gathered user feedback to address any issues or concerns promptly.

Through these steps, we successfully overcame the challenges faced during the development of the application. The customized library provided a tailored reading experience, while the device authentication feature ensured security and fair usage policies for users.
