Collectr is an image collecting app for android devices. I developed this for my university Android Development module and received a first for it.

The app has three main tabs. The “My Tags” tab allows users to add there favourite subjects as tags, the app then uses these tags to find the most recent images on the Flickr API that have the same tags. In the example I use the tags Moose and Dog, images that have at least one of these tags will appear.

The “Search” tab is as simple as it seams. Just simply type in the search box, and  the most recent results with images that include the text in their Title, Description or Tags appear.

When looking at an image, the user can press the plus button to add it to their collection. The image API URL is then saved to a SQLite database on the phone. The “My Collection” tab then retrieves the URLs saved to the database for the user to look at. At any point the user can remove the images  from their collection.
