DescriptionA super-simple Android test app
Language(s)Java

Existence was a super-simple Android app I created and published to get to learn the process of app publishing (on Android).

It has a simple UI, uses Google Play Games, and has AdMob for advertising.

I used the skills I learned in this project to later create Blast Up (Android) and finally Blasty Rocket (iOS).

DescriptionA simple mobile game
Language(s)Java,XML

Blast Up is the first full project that I had ever published. It is on the Google Play store. Making the app taught me a lot about app development, and, even if it was a little stressful, it was a fun experience.

Unfortunately, I didn’t use any 3rd party libraries for graphics or physics, which meant I had to essentially make my own mini- physics, graphics, and audio engine. I also tried to rush it, which ended up being a big annoyance later on. As a result, the gameplay and game quality wasn’t the highest quality.


The biggest problem for me was the app signing/certificate process, which happened right at the point before I was due to publish. That alone took me a week and many hours spent on StackOverflow, and was easily one of the most frustrating times I’ve had with software development.

While I don’t consider this app to be up to my normal standards, I am happy that I was able to actually release it.

I have continuted to improve on the app. I made a new version, this time for iOS, called Blasty Rocket (you can find it on the projects page of this website). I am happy with its quality, and these projects give me hope that I can publish something better in the future.

DescriptionAn app for FBLA
Language(s)Java

FBLA Connect was an app I created as part of a team for FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America, a national club/competition).

The purpose of the app was to teach users more about the club and its history. It was a small project, and it was fun to make as well.
