I have experience of writing native Android apps in Java working in a Agile environment working alongside UI/UX designers, Lead Android Developers, iOS Developers and Python/PHP server-side developers. Some of the commercial apps I have worked on are as follows where I was involved in developing the apps from wire-frame through to submitting to the Google Play Store:

I also developed the following apps for the B2B market for an Android Point of Sale as follows where I was involved in the entire life-cycle of the apps from design to delivery and support:

Some of the projects I have worked on are:

● VR-100 server – A simple socket server to enable web-based apps access to the Casio API.

● HSBC Global Pay Chip & Pin – Integration of Chip & Pin devices with the Casio app.

I have also worked on maintaining the following apps for Kelly Communications by adding new features and fixing bugs. The app I have worked on are:

 

Unity – A call logging software using GPS to locate the contractor, taking risk assessments and a daily service report. Includes the options to add photo and attachments which are all posted to the server.

VDR – Vehicle inspection app to log any defects along with photos which all get posted to the server.

DuctSeal – an app for engineers replacing or repairing telecoms boxes allowing HO to track their position by GPS and the user to take photos of the finished work.

TBT – This is a toolbox training app allow the present to log the contractors present and allow then to sign that they understood the trainging.

All B2B apps written for Casio and Kelly Communication and products are distributed through a network of re-sellers and are not available on Google Play and I am not authorised to distribute them or the source code.
