Coffee Shop Online Ordering App

I built this coffee shop application to demonstrate my design and development skills in Android. The design used for this demo can be extrapolated for any store application especially stores that sell visually appealing products like food, clothes, vehicles, and so on.

The app was built using Java, following industry-standard Android development guidelines, including:
1. Dependency Injection using Dagger
2. Architecture Components
3. Room and LiveData
4. ViewBinding and DataBinding
5. Support for Dark Mode
6. System-assisted Search
7. Google Maps Integration for a Custom Place Picker
