restaurand

home

Let's go out have lunch! Well, I am sure that you know plenty of good and fancy restaurants, but can you name 5 of the latests ones that you've come to? I can't, that is one of the reasons of creating restaurand.

restaurand is a simple application where you can add restaurants and then, ask for one suggestions. The restaurants suggested are from your collection and shown ussing some weighted randomness: the ones that you haven't seen in a while have more probability to appear than the others.

But there is a more important reason for the existance of restaurand: learning. This application is my test field where I can apply everything that I learn developing Android. So yes, some things are not necessary, there are best ways to do others, but keep in mind that what I want to do with the app is to use different approaches and try the latests trends of Android development.

In this app you will find:

  • Google Places API
  • (Kinda) Clean approach (interfaces everywhere!)
  • Material resources: CardViews, TextInputLayout, FloatButton, NavigationDrawer)
  • Android 6.0 Permissions

TODO:

  • Animations!
  • Add signup/signin and store someway your collection of restaurands
  • Add Retrofit + RxJava
  • Implement a better weighted randomness algorith
  • Better structure of the overall thing
