App Development

January 29, 2015

Greetings, readers! App development has been an idea which has been floating around my mind for a long time. I have spent hours upon hours brainstorming ideas for apps and I have a list of viable ideas which I may consider following through with if my first project is successful!

My first major project will be a Kuk Sool Won app for Android devices and possibly iOS in the distant future. The reason I am starting with Android is because apps for this platform are coded using the Java language which I have had some experience with in the past. Unfortunately I haven't had much experience with it but I have had enough to know that it's the first app developing language I want to learn. The other reason I've opted to go for Android first is because the fee to become an Android developer is only around £20 which is a lot cheaper compared to the near £100 to become an Apple developer! Although I'm starting with Android, I will definitely consider developing for iOS in the future and will use any revenue generated from ads in Android apps to invest in an iOS developer license.
Anyway, my first app will be a Kuk Sool Won application. If you aren't aware, Kuk Sool is the martial art I have been practising for the past 10 years of my life. Within the app, I hope to incorporate a forum-like feature as well as a social network for Kuk Sool practitioners to make new friends and assist each other in Kuk Sool related activities. I also hope to add video and text guides to various aspects of the art such as self defence techniques and forms. This will be done in the style of a wiki so users can add and edit anything they feel could be improved! These features are just the tip of the iceberg and I have a lot more ideas for the app, some of which I will share with you in development updates.
 I hope to begin development in June or July. This gives me time to teach myself Java to the extent that I can code the app with it, and it also gives me time to do other things, like school work.
Be sure to check back in the future for updates on the app!
