We know some of you have been waiting and waiting ….
We know that each time we mention our favourite iPhone app, Diet Doctor Eat, we get a flurry of impatient, even indignant, themes from Android consumers.( Pssst — for you iPhone users who haven’t downloaded Diet Doctor Eat, it’s amazing for phone-ready recipes and shopping list, so try it today. It’s free !)
You rebuke us and take us to task.
” What is taking so long ?”” C’mon Diet Doctor, give us the Android app !,” you scold us in Facebook and in comments on our site.
We’ve heard you loud and clear.
Well, here’s the phenomenal bulletin. After more than 18 months of scouring the world countries, screening dozens of potential applicants, we’ve hired a great elderly Android app developer.
His name is Stanislav( Stas) Shakirov. He was hired at the end of November and he moved from St. Petersburg, Russia, to join the engineering team in our Stockholm office on January 27. He’s settled freedom in and is hard at work building the app. Already he’s made significant progress.
” Our schedule is to have an app paradigm ready by March 1st that we are testing internally with works. We aim to have a public liberate by April 30 th ,” said Stas, who has worked with a number of international companionships as an Android developer.
Stas says he is very happy to be working for Diet Doctor and affection the company’s mission to determine low-pitched carb simple. He aims to raising a great product to Android useds as quickly as possible, while maintaining very high standards of performance
It was important to Diet Doctor not to contract out the Android app proliferation to a freelancer but instead to find a talented programmer who would move to Stockholm and work for the company full go , observes Diet Doctor founder Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt.
” To compile low-spirited carb simple we need to create immense apps for mobile phones. We didn’t want to outsource this important work — that’s just a quick fix. We demand certainly talented architects who can continually improve our apps and see them magnificent.
” For the Android app it has been a far harder and longer search for someone great to lead this work. But with Stas having moved to Stockholm to work full-time with our crew, “were in” a very good place. I am convinced we will have an amazing Android version of our app soon .”
One of the challenges of Android development is something called invention fragmentation. While the iOS software that underlies the iPhone app only has to work on three basic commodities, the Android app has to work on the thousands of divergence designs, of various types of ages and places of OS revises, with a variety of different displays and functions. It takes the view that Android app growth can take 30 to 40 percentage more term because of issues like fragmentation.
That doesn’t faze Stas, who has solved these problems before.” You have to build in the time to do all the tests to ensure reliability and a stable app that will work well on all manoeuvres .”
And believe this: When the Android app propels, we would love to hear your feedback, good or bad. The input from our members and the low-carb community, even when highly critical, is a key driver of endless progress at Diet Doctor.
So, when you take us to assignment, we are listening and striving to do better — to meet your needs as best we can, to manufacture low-spirited carb simple, and to entitle people everywhere to dramatically improve their own health.
