Yes, I have had. I started by doing some simple web pages and I've learned more and more until nowadays.
I knew React Native before coding this app, but making a project from scratch is always challenging. On the other hand it made me strengthen my knowledge in the field.
I am a 27 year old computer fan, almost self-taught since I was really young. Currently working as a software engineer. Beside my job I am always involved in personal projects and meeting groups. My interests fluctuate on a very broad spectrum from IoT home automation, GNU/Linux systems administration to programming apps like 'Nextcloud Passwords' for Android and iOS.
'JuiceSSH', it fulfills exactly my needs in a clever and user-friendly way. 'Spotify', it is clean, simple and available almost everywhere. 'Inbox by Gmail', they are going to shut it down in the next months, but I hope 'Google' won't do such a thing, it just does the job that 'Gmail' doesn't - in a clever and easy way.
My initial release just included the login views and components and a searchable list of sites with the ability to edit them. Surprisingly I achieved that in just a weekend. But I've been working on features and bugs like fingerprint/security settings, support for adding new sites or viewing the folders since then.
I am glad that you asked this question because I was looking for an idea to make something with React Native but I did not get anything. And it came suddenly when I was moving my files from some cloud provider to my own hosted 'Nextcloud' instance. When I gave a try to the 'Passwords' app and realized that I couldn't really use it because a lack of a good Android client, it moved me to code my own. I was not going to publish it until I shared it with a friend of mine who also used 'Nextcloud' and recommended me to upload the app to the 'Google Play' at least.
My app only aims to fill the gap with working as an app client for 'Passwords' app for 'Nextcloud'. As there aren't any other apps with the same purpose I can't say if it is better than the other apps.
There is a big bunch of things already pending to be implemented, like folder editing, moving sites from folders, sharing, revisions, tags and Android autofill service. Despite the bugs, I really would like to do the autofill service because it would be a new challenge.
Feel free to share, review, comment, improve, open an issue on 'GitHub' or contact me. And also feel free to download the app, use it and press the "Buy me a pint" button ?.
