Hello Eigo

This is my attempt at making a content app for Android. The features include endless scrolling, login/signup, search, bookmarking and comments. It utilises a number of popular libraries, such as RxJava, Retrofit and Dagger 2. The back-end is a Rails API hosted on IDCF Cloud.

I'm quite pleased with how the design turned out, and learned a lot about consuming an API with an Android app and creating responsive layouts. I also learned exactly why so many people dislike Fragments. In the future, I'd like to add fancier transitions, multimedia content and round out the test coverage.

There are no comments on this creation yet.
