Android app to save links for later

Featured image for the application

About the project

  • Creation date: 2021
  • Technologies: Android (Kotlin) + Hilt + Compose + Navigation Compose + Accompanist library

This is an app that I started developing just for myself. Basically, the idea was to have a simple app where I could save links so I could read them later.

I ended up abandoning the project simply because trying to automatically get a title, a description, and a thumbnail for any link was quite the challenge (who would have thought that trying to get a preview would open such a can of worms!), so at some point I just gave up on it.

In any case, the actual goal behind this app was to learn Compose, as well as the latest stuff at the time, such as Hilt or Accompanist. And in that regard, it certainly served its purpose.
