How we built it
Homell is fully built on android studio using Java language and schema xml for UI Design of screens. I started the development of the app by designing UI screens in adobe xd. And after that, I started an android studio project and in almost 2 months I built this whole application.
Challenges we ran into
Since this was the first time I was working on android studio. Getting comfortable with Gradle builds and android libraries were the biggest challenge for me. Notification is an important feature in any reminder app and due to the latest android version limitations, it was a big fight to make sure that all android versions will receive notification smoothly.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
I am really proud to say that all the products and invoices that users add to the app are sent uploaded to the cloud by high-end to end encryption methods so that there is no compromise with users' valuable personal data.
