ARL of IA Android App – The Developer

By: Kevin | September 3, 2012

Hello and welcome. My name is Kevin (Kev) and I decided to start a blog dedicated to a hobby of mine, technology. In particular, Android & iOS programming. I’ve always been interested computers and technology and was once a computer science major…though I switched studies later.

Although the computer science gig didn’t turn into a career for me, I’ve managed to stay in touch with the trends and have enjoyed experimenting as a newbie programmer in Android & iOS. I enjoy a good challenge to keep my wheels turning.   I decided I wanted to take on a project that hadn’t been done yet, or at least very infrequently done. I didn’t want to learn how to program simply to know how to do it. I wanted to make a meaningful, useful app that someone  would directly benefit from. So, as a hobbyist developer, I have donated many hours of my time to create the Animal Rescue League of Iowa (ARL of IA) iOS App, and now Android App. I have taught myself everything from scratch, with help from a book and my friend Google search.

I created the ARL of IA Android app on my own behalf and contacted The Animal Rescue League of Iowa, giving them the option to use the program I wrote free of charge. Since this app was designed and built by me, Kev, I will continue to do all the maintenance and updates as needed. This blog will serve as the main point of contact for the Android app. I check this blog often so please leave comments below with troubles, likes, dislikes, etc. I like to hear feedback.

Thanks for taking a minute to look at the Animal Rescue League of Iowa’s Android app. Now let’s find these homeless animals the families they deserve!

Enjoy! 🙂
