DigiByte is seeking Android Developers to assist with getting the new wallets ready for release.
After significant focus on the iOS wallet, we’re now at the stage where there’s just a few last-minute bugs that need squashing prior to submitting this to the Apple App Store for release. The focus now turns to Android to get this ready for release too.
Work has already begun several weeks ago, and we are looking for some developers who are willing and able to assist with moving the Android wallet forward. Any experience with Java / Android / Git is all that should be required at this stage.
The first task will be to update this repository: https://github.com/Racecraft/digibytewallet-android
With this pull request: https://github.com/Racecraft/digibytewallet-android/pull/3
This will allow you to “cut your teeth” on the codebase, hopefully familiarize yourself with it to a certain degree, and to also ensure we’re working with the latest code.
From here, if you want to post below and I’ll relay any applicable messages to our developers (I’m no dev myself and can’t program unfortunately), or alternatively / ideally if you want to jump into our DigiByte Developers telegram, the team will assist you with where to go from there: https://t.me/DigiByteDevelopers
For all our non-developer community (which I also consider myself in this), we know we wanted to get the updated wallets out for Windows, OSX, Linux, iOS and Android out sooner than we have, unfortunately it’s just part of the nature of software development that targets sometimes do get missed. As I mentioned in my recent interview with Patrick W, it’s the nature of the beast and is also why we try to avoid any “announcements” before they’re ready, and same goes for time-frames.
The new wallet for Android and iOS is coming along though and we’re super excited for the upcoming release! In the mean time, if you know of any Android / iOS developers, send them our way, we would love the help.
