His app @score is a runaway hit on our platform ---- has, on last count, 121445 hits. This app gives you scores of on-going (you’ve guessed it) cricket matches. But guess what? He doesn’t like the Indian Cricket team as he considers it to be ‘overrated’. Read on………
I currently have the Cricket scores app (@score) and the Lyrics app(@lyrics) on TxtWeb. The cricket score app is the most popular app between the two apps among the users.
I’m most proud of having developed the Lyrics app because its unique on TxtWeb as far as my knowledge goes.
I wanted to do something besides what was in my curriculum so I chose to develop these apps. Also, the Lyrics app had another motivation as well. I wanted a way to retrieve lyrics without having to look for it on the internet while listening to music on my phone.
I developed my TxtWeb apps using Java and thus I became more familiar with the language. I also learnt more about how the “cloud” works and got to learn a lot from fellow TxtWeb developers.
I used Java to develop apps on TxtWeb.
A few reasons :
1. Its easy to start developing apps.
2. Its fun.
3. Its easy to reach out to people using your apps. You can reach out to people regardless of whether they own smart phones or not.
I have given Android app development a shot. Although it was only the hello world app :)
Setting up the build environment for txtWeb was easier than it was for Android! :)
Nothing in particular. I just google stuff!. The Java documentation is of good help though. I usually refer to it if I run into issues when programming in Java.
No one in particular. I generally tend to draw inspiration from the people I’m surrounded by. Personal aspiration : I’d like to contribute to the field of Artificial Intelligence.
