I've been learning Android development recently and finally released my first free app.
It's open source and available on Github too. It's made with C# in Xamarin (not forms though, which meansit uses Android's native APIs).

I chose to start with a TOTP generator because
  • It's a non trivial use case yet not too complex
  • It allows to meaningfully integrate image acquisition and protocol handling
  • I already had a UWP version I could reuse the corre logic from
  • The Google OTP generator uses a web service to scan QR codes, as far as I can tell

I'd be interested in asking for feedback: does the app's UI feel right? What areas can I improve?

It was nice to see that you have your first software released. Congradulations... And thanks for sharing. As I saw you developed your software with Xamarin which is a cross platform framework. It would be great if you can share your experience here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/too...tform-t3850250 with other people.
I like to hear more stories about crossplatform and also native coding experiences.
I'm going to give your software a try.

I'm not a fan of material design UI, however your app looks nice. Congratulations for creating your first app.
