This is a mobile application for people that want to try themselves in photo industry. In this project I don't have any Android-like design so I created it myself. I communicated with client directly and we used some kind of Agile development process. We used Parse for the back-end logic, but now we migrated to it Backendless.


This project helps people in Australia to wash their cars, and it contains 2 applications (one for users and the other for washers; both on Android and iOS), a website, and a back-end.

During the project, at first I was a project manager of the iOS part. We started the project in iOS while the back-end API was in development and did not have all the API endpoints. I handle all the back-end issues and changes, all iOS app change requests, and more. After the iOS release I started on the Android project development. I was also the lead Android developer on this project where I created the app architecture and acted as the Scrum master.


This is a mobile payment application where the largest part that I've developed on this project was NFC payments.
