I have never used an API before so I wanted to give it a go.
So I thought it would be interesting to have a live count of online users.
It took a lot of help from the Pusher team as there were problems with getting android studio to work with the pusher API. But once that was set up, it was just a matter of implementing logic to provide the app functionality.
I had a lot of problems trying to get the API to work with android studio and connect to the channel.
As I said I have not used an API before so I was happy just to get it working.
I learned a lot about how API's work and how to change states of an app based on a user input.
In my spare time around university I will try to expand on the app and have it on the google play store eventually.
