Just wanted to give a small preview of what I’ve been working on the past few days. I’ve scrapped the original designs that I had for the apps and came up with something new.
Here’s a small teaser
Some of the smaller details are not final yet (icons/navbar) but I think you get the idea. I’m about 70% done with the designs of all the screens (there’s quite some actually) and have also begun the actual implementation/programming of the app in Flutter (again from scratch).
It didn’t take me long to implement/code the two screens you see above with Flutter, so I think that once the designs are done I’ll be able to develop the apps in no time. I’m thinking about releasing a version without offline capabilities first, and then once everything works correctly, add offline functionality afterwards.
If I had to give an estimate of the time left before a beta version, I’d say around a month (but no promises yet ).
As you can see, the dictionaries will be integrated inside this app as well, but the Reader (for helping you read Japanese texts/books) will get it’s own standalone app afterwards. Reason being that it’s completely focused on Japanese and also requires additional assets which would bloat the main app too much.
