Immediately after the release of the Android client, I got a lot of negative feedback from users: about the app itself, about the methods I choose to use, about the limitation, the bugs, the UI, but I also got some positive feedback and some compliments.
I want to quickly explain why I released a not-so-perfect app:
The whole AppFeed project (Website, Chrome extension, Android app) are being managed, developed, tested, maintained and supported by me, a single person. I have a real full-time job that pays living expenses, but during my free time and weekends, I like to stay updated about development, tech and Android, so I created the AppFeed project.
Having so little free time to do development, I had to choose between launching a complete and perfectly tested and working android app (or website), that will require me around 5-6 months of work (in weekends, all for free), or released the app as beta, with bugs, and add features when I have time. Knowing my time limits, I went with the second option.
Sorry for those who expect everything from a single person, and for free, that’s not how I work, AppFeed started as a personal project and for my passion for the Android world, but ended up open to everyone.
Thanks for your understanding, and hope that you enjoy it…
