Few Final days [Android, more plans, final thoughts]
Updated: Apr 9, 2018
It was super easy to get Android going. I had a fully functional API, and, since I already figured out the business logic while building for iPhone, I almost didn't have to think -- just write code. As such, I do believe, this is extremely powerful to have developers on your team who can do both platforms. It's extremely rare to find such kind of a developer, simply because engineers typically have very strong bias towards a particular platform. The best thing to do would be to stay as open minded as possible, and teach yourself both platforms over time, and serve as an example to people around you -- this type of example is generally very contagious.
Here is how the 2 android screens look like:
The look and feel is very rough, which is consistent with iPhone version for now.
Here are a short list of things I will be working on next to improve the UI/UX on IOS and Android:
-- Replace "cancel", "report abuse", "contact us" buttons with Font Awesome icons
-- Add spinners when loading
-- Detailed view show thumbnail first (even if it's slightly blurry), then -- full image when ready
-- Detailed view swiping left right to navigate to other photos
-- Detailed view zoom in
-- Better track OS permissions dialogs (like Camera and GPS permissions)
-- Infinite scroll beyond 100 photos
You can find the app store links to this app on this site, just scroll all the way down to the footer.
That's all. Thanks for reading. And definitely, if you have any questions, suggestions, concerns -- reach out to me on https://www.echowaves.com/support
