Building an app from scratch... This is my first Android app idea that I feel has a real chance to be successful, but that of course depends on how success is defined. I define success rather simply as effectively changing the experience of sharing my wifi password with my friends and family and conveniently having access to their hotspots using the app. If I need a broader definition than that I can always change it later.
This app is not as original as I had assumed it to be, but that tells me something about the existing apps out there if my friends and I had never heard of them before. I can tell you that after having evaluated these apps, I would never recommend them to a friend.
I have a lot of vision for what Hello Wifi can become but at the same time I must focus on strictly delivering real value and that means simplifying it to something releaseable. But I won't sacrifice usability or security.
