I worked on many projects where I had various roles, from a coder to the key technical person.
Diversity of the Android platform mixed with quick evolution of the mobile world.
I will skip my own course;) I like stable and polished apps with engaging user interface. My favorite at the moment is Philips Hue, the app dedicated to play with smart lighting. Besides of that I adore many of apps made by Google.
Weeks of research, months of development, hard to assess exactly how much time I have spent, it’s a hobby project where time doesn’t count.
When you create a website, there is plenty of tools helping to inspect and debug the HTML code, CSS style, etc. When you develop a mobile application however, the possibilities of inspecting the app at runtime are much more limited. I wanted to create a kind of tool that was missing on mobile. With Developer Assistant, designers can verify pixel-perfect designs, developers can check multiple technical attributes, translators can verify which translation keys are used on a given screen and much more.
It’s hard for me to find similar apps. Which would shine in the main area of interest of the Developer Assistant app, which is: Use various heuristics to inspect other apps. To show far more than possible with official APIs available for Android developers. At the same, honor all the system restrictions and don’t require any dedicated SDK.
Much more is to come, if my plans won’t change, next improvements will be a valuable addition for mobile app translators and generally people interested in knowing the context of translations.
Please have fun working more efficiently thanks to the Developer Assistant app. Also, don’t hesitate to share with me any issues with the app and ideas to improve it further.
