This app loads a list of nearby development applications from Planning Alerts and displays them as markers on a map. Tapping a marker displays a small summary window; clicking on that will open the planning alerts webpage for that application in a custom tab where you can interact with it.
This is written in Java, and:
- Consumes a REST API via Retrofit, okhttp and GSON,
- Displays results on Google Maps, with clustering via android-maps-utils,
- Uses RxJava, and Dagger2.
I’m not sure whether to take this further. I’m not convinced of it’s usefulness as a product. Does it have any usefulness alongside the email notifications already provided by Planning Alerts? These are UX questions that I can’t answer until I have some user feedback.
