Personal Capital Engineers have ambitious vision, and as a friend put it, we’re always pregnant with more projects than we have engineers for. Our latest delivery is Personal Capital Android App.
Like our iOS app, the Android app is filled with interactive custom components and visualizations, from the rotating pie chart for cash management to the asset allocation tree map. Our philosophy in both design and implementation is to create custom native components tuned to the each device’s unique attributes to allow for an intuitive design and controlled behavior across varying device resolutions
In our Android app, we use many of the design concepts and lessons learned from our earlier development of our iOS app. For example, we implemented the same unique navigation system in Android that we use in iOS – it employs the concept of live views to speed up wayfinding for the user. We will be talking about some of these “shared clients that don’t share codes” concepts in our meetup as well.
