Punchlist is an Android app that allows building a to-do list and basic to-do item management functionality, including adding new items, and editing and deleting an existing item.

Submitted by: Erik Cox

Time spent: 15 hours spent in total

User Stories

The following required functionality is completed:

  • User can successfully add and remove items from the todo list
  • User can tap a todo item in the list and bring up an edit screen for the todo item and then have any changes to the text reflected in the todo list.
  • User can persist todo items and retrieve them properly on app restart

The following optional features are implemented:

  • Added app icon in ActionBar
  • Changed text fields to textCapSentences to capitalize the first letter of a to-do
  • To-do item list scrolls to the bottom when a new item was added
  • Added padding between ListView items for readability
  • To-do items are persisted in SQLite via ActiveAndroid instead of a text file
  • To-do items have been styled with a custom adapter
  • Replaced the edit item Activity with an edit item DialogFragment.
  • Added Stetho for debugging and database Firebase for analytics.
  • Added a due date with a DatePicker dialog to to-do items.

Video Walkthrough

Here's a walkthrough of implemented user stories: 'Video Walkthrough'

  • I had some trouble verifying the data passed back in the EditActivity.
  • I ran into a bug with Android Studio's Instant Run feature with regards to Active Android. I found a fix here.
  • I kept getting the error Cannot resolve symbol R. This was resolved by doing a Build->Clean Project and Sync Project with Gradle Files.
  • I had some issues formatting dates with the DatePicker. If worked fine with Y/M/D & D/M/Y, but not M/D/Y.
