The Challenge of Design

Finally
After lots and lots of struggling, some real, usable interfaces exist for Zadatak! Who would have thought it would have been a such a struggle after practicing with fake buttons. But usable code with real restrictions is another ball park. The new code supports page switches (easier than I thought it would be) and a nice background (much harder than I thought it would be!) . Transparency and scrolling were also new features for myself.

As far as the interface design goes, many challenges still exist and need to be tackled. Some I know how to handle (checking the user’s data for consistancy) and some will require some research before writing any actual code (how to grab our list of tasks from a SQL database and output it to the user). The biggest and most important challenge that exists for Zadatak is sending out alarms when working on a task is required. This is critical for the functionality of our app, even when the application isn’t running. I’m not sure how to tackle this one yet, but thank goodness for google!
