Even though this is a concept app, I feel like I dropped the ball on this one. The app is called Stream, and when you first open it, you’re greeted by a random photo of an artist.
The listen button has (don’t quote me on this) soothing gifs to match the music to help you zone out. I wanted the app to be really chill and promote the craft of the local musicians in the city/town.
I think the part that I don’t like is that I have no UI/UX skills (I guess this means I need to take a class). It’s just a concept, but still… I want it to be/look dope.
I’m going to submit it so I can see if I can stay ahead of the suggested graduation time.
…but first I totally did it wrong.
I’m still working on how to get everything pushed up into GitHub. For any potential employers out there not reading my blog – I swear this never happens.
The second time around made a little more sense with what I was working with.
The assignment was to create a quiz about any topic you cared about, and to have RadioButtons, CheckBoxes, and an EditText question. Since I thought just submitting one quiz would be too simple, I decided to have two quizzes (Originally I thought about four, but then thought that was too much). The left column is my finished product and the right was around the time I got a grip on how I wanted the layout to be. I also added support for Japanese language (Shoutout to Mooncake for helping with those. I can’t remember if that screenshot is me butchering the language or Mooncake fixing it for me. Either way, YOTO-you only translate once), and you can even answer questions in Japanese, however I don’t know if people know the kanji for the last question on the Senju side to get it right (I didn’t know myself until I looked it up).
I’m currently in the process of working on the fourth project. It’s funny because it doesn’t even need to work, but I have this issue with not fully understanding Material Design, that I decided to take the Material Design course, so that I can make my not-supposed-to-function Musical app ridiculously good-looking. A lot of the topics float over my head. And a part of me feels like an imposter using some of the more advanced code before I’m supposed to – but fuck it. How else does one learn? Naruto wouldn’t be who he was if he hadn’t stolen the scroll to learn the forbidden 多重影分身の術.
