[Android app] Unreal Tracker

Hi guys,

About a month ago I decided to download UE4 - when I saw the announcement that it was free.

I like to code and I like to contribute to open source projects, but after installing UE4 I realized that its going to take me some time to get familiarized with game development.

Nevertheless, I am an open source fan and the Unreal Engine/Unreal Tournament concept and project excites me enough to make me want to be a part of it, so I made an Android app to track the projects:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sevag.unrealtracker

It aggregate the latest blog posts, marketplace listings, and displays the Twitch countdown timer.

Free, no ads, open source (MIT license), source code right here: https://github.com/sevagh/UnrealTracker

Some notes:

  • The first iteration looks plain. My friends who beta tested it for me suggested that I make it look more “unreal”, the buttons, fonts and everything. I’ll try.

  • I want to add a feature that pulls information from the Github repo of UT (latest commits, branches, issues, what have you) but that will require log-in and I need to do research on the best safety practises

Please post your feedback and criticism. I’m an Android novice.

Thanks,
Sevag

Currently working on a redesign. Here’s a teaser: http://i.imgur.com/JuXh69T.png

Font looks a little gaudy, does anybody know of a good Unreal-esque font that’s more plain?

*edit

I’ve decided to go with this font for readability: http://www.google.com/fonts/specimen/Roboto

Redesign is complete: http://i.imgur.com/zGJsRQF.png

I submitted the latest version to the Google Play store, it’ll take a few hours though.

Wow ! So that’s what they call " Community Service" :smiley:

Thanks man. That should come in handy :smiley:

Thanks, let me know if the app has any bugs or its lacking a major feature.

I’m replacing my use of pixels with dp in the interface. The original with pixels probably looks very bad on high res phones.

*edit
New version (1.2) is pushed that should fix it. My apologies to all with high res phones who had icons the size of ants in v1.1.

The link in the About section was broken. Luckily it wasn’t one of the Unreal links. Fixed in 1.3.

Is anybody using this? I’d love some feedback.

1.4 has been out for a few days.
