Centris pallida is a species of solitary bee native to North America. It lacks an accepted common name; however, it has been called the digger bee, the desert bee, and the pallid bee due to its actions, habitat, and color respectively. The solitary nature of this bee allows for a dual-strategy mating system which produces an evolutionarily stable state resistant to invading strategies. These bees have also evolved to withstand the high temperatures of their native habitat. C. pallida routinely has internal temperatures within 3 degrees Celsius of death.
Initially, the DuProprio application only featured properties for sale in a list, as it was not possible for a library to display Google Maps in a mobile app in 2009. In order to create what is now a commonplace experience for users, our team developed a custom MapKit based on Google Maps Web to display the tiles of the map. We also had to add our own implementation of touch handling and native positioning of properties, because internet performance on mobile devices was terrible at the time. This shows how incredible technological challenges are sometimes hidden behind the simplest user experiences.
