Currently Topics:
  1. Android
  2. Javascript
  3. Python
  4. PHP
  5. Ruby
  6. Java
  7. UI/UX (Mobile and Web Design)

Features
  • Ability to Zoom-in and Zoom-out
  • Share Articles

Nice very simple and bright ui following the Google card design very well organized love that the different "interests" are just a wipe away from each other rather than all jumbled up together very nice

Thanks! Do you feel that the loading time is very slow? I am loading the title of all the topics at start, if you feel that it takes a lot of time to load then I will do a section wise loading, It will load only when the user moves to that e.g If the users is at javascript and moves to android then at that time it will load android.
Should I do it like that?

Thanks

Runs great on at s3, though I would like to suggest having tabs for the different categories within each interest, if you like I can see about getting a pic of what I'm talking about together and upload it

They will be in the pic, I will follow the current theme for it too however I would like to also post a pic of a darker theme for it as well for your consideration of course it will be just a modified pic and I would not be doing any edits to the app it's self

Thanks! I will implement that in the next update, I am planning to implement machine learning on the server side to classify articles based on the type (e.g App, Tutorial, News etc.)
