Android App - Purdue Maps
After my internship at Amazon, I became even more comfortable with Eclipse IDE and Java programming so I decided to make some Android Apps to enhance my OOP skills. Browsing through Google Play's directory of apps led to me believe there is a shortage (and a need) of a Purdue campus finder very much like the one that is available on iOS.
So, I present to you Purdue Maps:
Very interesting! So I navigated to that address and found myself looking at an XML file of campus locations with their abbreviations, geo-coordinates and street addresses! What comes next is rather easy, I converted the XML contents into an SQLite database and included it into my Android app to be accessed through custom search suggestion functionality. I didn't create a web service to serve the data as I didn't see the need to overcomplicate things when it is just a small database of locations. I hope you enjoy the app!
