I've always loved the webcomic xkcd by Randall Munroe and I decided for my first public app I would make a reader for it.

How it works

This app uses the xkcd API to get whatever comic the user wants.

Challenges I ran into

I had some trouble in the beginning with basic JSON parsing but I soon learned

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

This app is an accomplishment in itself, the first app I have released publicly and it includes many things I have learned along the way. This app is the first thing that got me interested and understanding programming more than ever before.

What I learned

I've learned so much with this app. I've learned the basics to Android development, parsing JSON, how code works, even how Android Studio works!

What's next for X-Viewer

I'm currently almost done updating X-Viewer to be less bland and correspond with Material Design. I'm incorporating a Floating Action Button and different colors to increase the quality of the user's experience.
