First Android App

Postby Nathan » Sat Feb 20, 2010 5:10 pm

So, Iv'e been learning the Android API for around two days now, Iv'e been experimenting with different things and now I have tried to make an app to bring all those things together and I'd just like to show off what Iv'e come up with.

It is an IRC client, for naming I wasn't so creative, just a pun on IRC - 'EyeAreCee'.

It isn't the most advanced app in the world, purely because I haven't had that much experience with the API plus I'm only 16.

It allows you to connect to one server currently, custom port and nickname etc. The user interface is simple for the main screen, just two edit text box's, one for incoming data and one to send data. On the Activity menu there is a range of different commands.

-Channels
--Join Channel
--Leave Channel
--Channel Message
--User List
--Channel Focus (Filter out which channel you wish to see chat text from)
-Admin Commands
-Kick
-Ban
-User
--Private Message
-D/C (Disconnect)

- = Sub Menu
-- = Menu Item

So here are some screenshots.

Image
This is the main screen you are brought to when the app loads.

When you connect to a server you are brought here where then you can join channels.

So that's it really, and tips to make my apps better in the future are appreciated. Thanks.

This looks pretty good, especially for a first program. You can extend upon this and utilize a lot of the pluses of the API to turn this into a full-fledged IRC app.

If you have any questions, feel free to shoot me a PM.
