Kuwait Finder App

A Kotlin-based Android application for searching for addresses in Kuwait and navigation. I was responsible for developing app version 3.x from scratch: the current version in Google Play Store right now.

This was a new challenge for me because, at that time, I had no prior knowledge of the Kotlin programming language and I was still learning Android development. This project showcases my fast learning capabilities and the high-quality work I can produce.

I was the sole developer for this Android application. Its high quality and new features helped increase the app's average rating to 4.6 in the Play Store. It is used by more than 228,000 users and is ranked as a top map-&-navigation app in Kuwait since its version 3.x launch in 2019.
