Folha de Pernambuco is an important daily newspaper in the state of Pernambuco, Brazil. It covers a variety of local, national, and international news, as well as topics related to politics, economy, culture, sports, and more. Folha de Pernambuco is a reliable source of information for residents of the state and anyone interested in keeping up with news from this region.
The challenge that the Folha team brought to us was to transform a website into a mobile application. This was because, in 2021, they noticed that changes in reading habits were impacting the site, and the existing mobile version did not adequately meet the needs of readers. Among the main deficiencies were the lack of notifications to inform readers about new articles and the incompatibility with various mobile devices.

In this scenario, Fteam entered as an external team specialized in Flutter development, initially playing an outsourcing role.
