Projects

unitMeasure

Offline Unit Converter for Android
I started development on this project as a side-project demo. It quickly gained over 25,000 downloads, and has become my most popular and successful android app, yet. unitMeasure works without internet, uses no permissions, and has privacy as the main focus.

Vision Code Scanner

QR & Barcode Scanner App for Android

Vision started off as a simple idea, based on Google Play Service's Vision API. This app doesn't use internet and only has the camera permission for scanning purposes. Once you are in the app, you can click scan and automatically once a code is found, it opens it in your default browser or displays a prompt on screen with the results. It does and works exactly how it should be expected from any user, while most apps in the play store don't meet that standard unfortunately.

Torch

Ultimate Flashlight App for Android

Torch was a program that I built to be an awesome flashlight and strobe light for android. It comes with a quick tile and a widget in addition to the main app. No ads or internet are ever requested or used. Only the camera permission is required for the strobe light to function properly.
