Case Study

A brief rundown on a mobile app I built

Setting

What I was trying to accomplish

Every day, there is about 10 NBA games going on. Before going to bed, I wanted to know about the headliner player box scores but it was really cumbersome going through the ESPN app and checking each game. So I built an app.

Architecture

Headless API with 3rd Party Data Ingestor

The 3rd party API I was using was very data heavy and did not have a delta option so I couldn't connect my app directly. Instead, I built a "REST Stop" server that sat on top of the 3rd party API.

Optimization

Memory management and reducing complexity

My app had an endless horizontal list of cards with charts that were constantly being updated. So how do keep my app for being a memory hog and wasting battery? It became essential that I eliminate unnecessary renders.
