The customer has requested to develop a mobile application on Android, that will use their REST web services and will be integrated into their system. The application should parse external XML and display news from the remote server. Also, it should create PDF invoices from images, taken by a camera of a mobile device, and send it to the client’s system. The application should allow adding events from the website into the user’s smartphone calendar.
The main challenge was to create a stable robust application for smartphones running on the Android 4.1+ platform. Our developer has created a caching system that allows using internet connection intelligently and not download the same content each time.
The second case for our developer was to create pdf documents inside the mobile application. It should take pictures by smartphone’s camera, combine them into one pdf document. Then the application has to send it via email to an external web service.
Our developer has successfully implemented all needed functionality, the application has passed all tests on the client’s side, and was published at the store on time.
There was developed a fully functional financial application that meets all initial requirements of the customer.
Main sections of the application:
- Financial Calendar
- Knowledge base
