SCB Book - Social Network App


  1. Given the public API:
  2. Write a UI of your choice: iOS, Android or Web.
  3. Put the code into a GitHub repository and provide us with a link and instructions on how to start the application.
  4. Please, provide your submission as quickly as possible.

Some further clarification on the task

  1. What's the judging criteria?

    • Cleanness of code
    • Ease of use & navigation
    • Look and feel
    • Creativeness
  2. We are to decide all the APIs by ourselves? What number of it is expected/preferred?

    • The API should be this:
    • It is a simple social network app.
    • Users have posts and photo albums and a todo list
    • Posts have comments.
    • Photo albums have photos.
    • We don’t want to be too restrictive regarding how the data gets presented.
    • An example app could look like (but is not restricted to):
      • Have a top level list of users.
      • Click a user widget and get to the user details page.
      • Have another button to show the address
      • Have a section for photo album
      • Have a section for todo’s
      • Have a section for posts.
      • Each section navigates to the respective details view.
      • Navigating back up the UI tree should be possible.
  3. Any preferred types of apps/webs or problem domains? e.g. a timer vs. an info site

    • We would prefer a mobile app over a web app. Otherwise see above. If it runs in an emulator that is fine.
