For the past couple of months, we have been tirelessly working on version 3.0.0 of the Ushahidi Android app. We have completely rewrote the app from scratch for better organization of the code base and we have added all of the new features that were missing from the iOS version. We have also iterated over the user interface (UI) and made some great improvements.
Major new features and improvements include:
New Map Listings Screen
Better offline support
Regarding translations, thanks to everyone who has helped to translate the app for our previous releases. You are all awesome. With this version, we’ve created new strings and also edited some of the existing strings. If there is anyone interested in translating the new strings, please check this link — http://goo.gl/sLptf. All of the new strings can be found here. As some of you may know, we have moved over to transifex — http://www.transifex.net to facilitate the translations effort. You will need to create an account if you do not have one in order to do the translations. We sincerely appreciate all of your effort.
As always, we owe much appreciation and thanks to the Ushahidi community — if it hadn’t been for your contributions with all the feedback and bug reports, these huge improvements wouldn’t have been possible.
The app is available today on the Android market. You can download it on your phone by clicking on the image on the left or scanning the QR code on the right. Enjoy!
