Waves Tracker the Android Surf Tracking App

In this blog post, I would like to talk about the testing process of this Android exclusive app and how much thought it goes into supporting WearOS, Samsung Gear, and Fitness Trackers.

Developing an app that is compatible and works on multiple platforms is not an easy feat. To develop the algorithms that do the processing of the waves I had the help of friends and some work colleagues – some of them are extremely educated holding Ph.D. degrees.

In addition to that, when it came to design the UI/UX of the mobile and watch app other friends have as well helped with the process. But once these phases were completed, it was time to put to test it all, its integration and performance.

It was challenging getting the app to work in an easy way that most users can set up and get it all going with no help. “Good software is like a good joke, needs no explanation”.

Once the app was loaded into a device it was a matter of waiting for waves, to test its reliability and whether or not the app would crash or misbehave halfway through a surf session.

We have learnt a lot during the initial test phases and are proud of the current state of the app. There are still things that could be improved and our users are helping us do things better and be better.

Thanks for reading and until next time, cheers!
