Developer Assistant - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

I worked on many projects where I had various roles, from a coder to the key technical person.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Diversity of the Android platform mixed with quick evolution of the mobile world.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

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.

How long have you been working on this app?

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.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

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.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

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.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

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.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

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.
