How to create your own Travel App for Android

Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy is REQUIRED for your app. If it is missing, your app may be removed from the Google Play at anytime.
We've included a default Privacy Policy in the template app, but you should create YOUR OWN.

You can use online services like privacypolicytemplate.net or App Privacy Policy Generator.

When you have created own Privacy Policy upload it to your website and copy the link to it.

Use this link for a Privacy Policy field in Google Play Console.

Put the Policy link to strings.xml file.

<string name="com_travelpayouts_privacy_policy" tools:ignore="MissingTranslation">Put policy link here</string>

SDK initialization

Change com_travelpayouts_marker and com_travelpayouts_api_token in strings.xml file to your marker and api token params. You can find them at Travelpayouts.com.

<string name="com_travelpayouts_marker" tools:ignore="MissingTranslation">put marker here</string>
<string name="com_travelpayouts_api_token" tools:ignore="MissingTranslation">put api token here</string>

Application id

To publish your application on Google Play you must set unique application id. All you need to do is change applicationId in app/build.gradle file.

apply plugin: 'com.android.application'
apply plugin: 'kotlin-android'

android {
  compileSdkVersion versions.compileSdk
  
    defaultConfig {
        applicationId "com.example.myapp"
        
        minSdkVersion 21
        targetSdkVersion versions.targetSdk
        
        versionCode 1
        versionName "1.0"
        ...
    }
    ...
}

Application name

Change the application name in strings.xml file.

<string name="app_name" tools:ignore="MissingTranslation">Put appname here</string>

White label

com_travelpayouts_flight_engine_host is the main endpoint of Travelpayouts flight SDK. You can use https://www.travel-api.pw as your default endpoint, but we strongly recommend to change it to your WhiteLabel host. You can change com_travelpayouts_flight_engine_host in strings.xml file.

<string name="com_travelpayouts_flight_engine_host" tools:ignore="MissingTranslation">https://www.travel-api.pw</string>

Google maps initialization

Google maps is necessary for your app. To initialize Google maps you need to:

  1. Go to the Google Cloud Platform Console.
  2. From the Project drop-down menu, select or create the project for which you want to add an API key.
  3. From the Navigation menu, select APIs & Services > Credentials.
  4. On the Credentials page, click Create credentials > API key. The API key created dialog displays your newly created API key (an encrypted string).
  5. Copy your API key and click Close.
  6. Put API Key to manifestPlaceholders in app/build.gradle file.
apply plugin: 'com.android.application'
apply plugin: 'kotlin-android'

android {
    compileSdkVersion versions.compileSdk

    defaultConfig {
       ...
        manifestPlaceholders = [
            GOOGLE_API_KEY: "Put API key here"
        ]
        ...
    }
   ...
}

App icons creation

Best way to create the application icon is using Asset Studio tool:

  1. In the Project window, select the Android view.
  2. Right-click the res folder and select New > Image Asset.
  3. Set up foreground and background layers. IMPORTANT! Do not change icon name.
  4. Click Next > Finish.

Colors customization (OPTIONAL)

To customize colors of your app change primary, primaryButton, positiveButton and primary_dark in colors.xml. This is main Travelpayouts Travel App colors

<color name="primary">#5A6D87</color>
<color name="primary_dark">#475972</color>
<color name="primaryButton">#F48C6B</color>
<color name="positiveButton">#35C772</color>

Firebase integration (OPTIONAL)

To track events and log crashes you need to add Firebase integration:

  1. Create a new or open existing Firebase project in the Firebase console
  2. Add the new Android applicaton (Add app -> Android)
  3. Download google-services.json and place it into the app folder
  4. Uncomment //apply plugin: 'com.google.gms.google-services' and //apply plugin: 'io.fabric' in app/build.gradle
  5. Uncomment //classpath 'com.google.gms:google-services:4.2.0' in build.gradle
  6. Go to the console Crashlytics section
  7. Click Set up Crashlytics
  8. Select "No, this app does not have any version of the Crashlytics SDK installed" and click Next
  9. Run your app to receive analytics
