BeenThere is a full-working template (UI + Source Code) where people can post, browse and edit places they’re visiting by taking pictures, writing something about those locations and share them to the app’s community.
Users are also allowed to report inappropriate content/users, like places and post comments, share them to social network apps, email, SMS, follow people to get their posts in the Home screen, edit their own profiles, and check the list of followers and following.

The Admin can daily check the database for reported content or users and take action for it, as well as manually edit data in the Parse Dashboard.

The design is clean, code is commented and project folders and files are well organized in the package.

A real device to test the app before submitting it to the Play Store – Emulators may fail during tests, they are not reliable as a real device is, so I strongly recommend you to always run this application on a real phone/tablet. This is also suggested by Google’s official Guidelines.
