BMW e46 DIY Android Application
 
Hi everyone,

I recently created an Android app which contains a bunch of DIY's for your convenience. I'm aware that there is already an app called e46 fix it, but the developer has not updated in a long time (also glitchy/slow) and I was looking for a summer project to do and wanted to get experience in Android.

All/most information was taken from http://www.bimmerinfo.com/diy so a big thanks to whoever created that site!

Will be updating that app with more information soon, check it out!

Free version:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...56.bmw.e46.diy

If you wish to donate (not expecting any of course!):
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....e46.diydonate

All advice/recommendations are appreciated, it is my first time working on Android!

Edit: Noticed some bugs, will update soon

Great idea. Would definitely get it if I still had my droid.

Updated: fixed some bugs, everything should be working except for some dead links.

Would be nice for the iOS

Awesome! Another Android developer! :clap:

Just be careful with that icon. But i highly doubt BMW will be looking for apps to remove from the Play store ;-)

None of the links in the maintenance section go to the correct place. I didn't check all of them, but most.

Looks like a nice neat app, but the links aren't all correct as stated above. Some link to the wrong articles and some others link nowhere.

No problem, I'll fix it tonight. I rush through the links at around 5 am, was so tired :cry:

I have no experience with iOS, yet! It's very different than the other programming languages. Maybe one day! :thumbsup:

App has been updated, I cross checked all the links to match!

Looking into search functionality now.

If anyone wants to design an icon for the app, be my guest! :)

i am learning ios programming. I'll try to convert it to iOS in a few month

Hey guys, just a quick update:

I know the app hasn't been updated in a while, but I'm still here! It's been a busy quarter, right now I'm working on implementing a database on the web where the android app can pull information. This way, every time I add a new category or guide/link, I won't have to send an update to everyone with the app. Also once I have the database up, I can let users add their own links and items into the app (need a way to regulate this of course).

Search function will be added after I finish the database.

Just some interesting facts:

The app currently has:
1,131 total user installs
562 active device installs

0 errors have been reported since the last update!!
