Android app redesign

Dec. 22, 2018

As you might know, we have desktop and mobile applications for our routers. The desktop application was developed quite some time ago and was popular by some of our users even before we started making Turris Omnia router that most of you know us for. With Turris Omnia, it made sense to extend it to the mobile world and so we did. But over the time we gathered feedback that people would like it to do much more and we wanted to satisfy this demand.

Looking back at our current app, we found out that it wouldn't be that easy to extend and maintain it in the long run. At the same time, we were also facing quite some challenges in the backend part of the app. Originally we used netconf for our applications but that has proven to be more of a hindrance than a help. As the mobile app was facing big redesign already, we decided to go with the long-term maintainable solution and redesign the backend as well.

As we are making various decisions now, , we would like to ask you for feedback. What would you like to have in our new mobile application? What do you think makes the most sense, what is crucial and what is not. We came up with some ideas so we prepared poll from those, but you can enter some ideas of your own. Later on, we will evaluate that, publish the outcome and develop a new application that will be much better than the current one.
