Experience

  • Polka Polka | Android App (Development)
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=us.libertytechllc.polkapolka.free

    I created a personal app called Polka Polka which allows you to stream Polish and other types of music to your phone or tablet. There are several stations to choose from for your listening or dancing enjoyment.

    Highlighted Features:
    • Select and filter your favorite stations.
    • Switch between English and Polish language without changing your phone's settings.
    • Play music in the background while you do other tasks.

  • Silver Change | Android App (Development)
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=us.libertytechllc.silverchange

    I created a personal app called Silver Change. The value of the dollar has steadily declined since 1913 when the Federal Reserve was created. The process has accelerated in 1971 when President Nixon took the US off of the gold standard. While nominal dollar value decreased, coins made with silver, commonly called "junk silver," retained their value.

    The app is a virtual wallet where a user can select the silver coins and quantities and see the total real value based on metal content. The nominal value is shown as well. Each coin also has a description, metal content information, and historical notes.
