Electronic Component Pinouts Free - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes. I am an Engineer and I used to code on C++, PHP, and other languages. It took me a couple of months to get used to Android Java.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

It is very difficult to support all resolutions, different screens, and hardware across Android devices. My apps usually require at least Android 4.04, which is quite old! It’s also very difficult to code with so little official support from Google. Documentation about Android is very sparse.

Adriano Moutinho is an Electrical Engineer, Electronics and Microprocessor professor on CEFET-RJ technical school, MSc. in Computer Science and DSc on Civil Engineering.

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

I make my apps for myself. Most of then exist only so I can use it. But I guess I really admire Netflix App, because it works everywhere, almost flawless! I know how difficult this is!

How long have you been working on this app?

For more than a year! It’s very interested because I launched the first app version and I though nobody was going to used. When I realized more than 1000 people started using my app, I decided to really start taking it seriously. Today, I have more than 150K active users!

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

I created apps for myself. So, I am the primary user! Then, when everything works and it is useful, I publish on Google Play. I think I always focus on simplicity and very little interface design. Simple and easy!

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.

The major difference between Electronic Component Pinouts and the other similar apps is the fact that everything is offline, it does not require internet connection. It’s quite fast because all database is local! And it is very big, with almost 80K different components and boards. It’s a small, efficient and easy-to-use app.

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

I would really like to team up with design specialists and improve my interface. It’s very old style and simple. In the future, I hope to work on that.

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.)?

Always keep in mind I’m not a corporation. I’m a single developer! Stop giving all apps one star rating every time something wrong happens. It’s not my fault! At least, not always! Electronic Component Pinouts app has a feedback suggestion inside the application so users can suggest new components. This is a very good way to improve my app!
