Both iOS and Android version can share the same Parse database

July 20th 2017
• Updated targetSdkVersion and compileSdkVersion to 26 in build.gradle
• Edited the image picked methods in AccountScreen.java and PostAd.java
• Added a provider_paths.xml file into res/xml
• Added a <provider> tag into Manifest.xml
• Added a scale bitmap method into Configs.java, for better performances on old devices
• Added a Storage permission request in the onStart() method in Home.java 
May 19th 2017
• Removed this line in Configs.java:
    public static String CLASSIF_DESCRIPTION_LOWERCASE = "descriptionLowercase";

• Removed this line in PostAd.java -> saveAdToParse:
    adObj.put(Configs.CLASSIF_DESCRIPTION_LOWERCASE, descTxt.getText().toString().toLowerCase());

• Added these 2 lines in Configs.java:
    public static String CLASSIF_IS_REPORTED = "isReported";
    public static String CLASSIF_REPORT_MESSAGE = "reportMessage";

• Added this line in PostAd.java -> saveAdToParse() method:
            adObj.put(Configs.CLASSIF_IS_REPORTED, false);

• Edited  the 'case R.id.reportButt' case into ShowSingleAd.java in order to flag a reported ad in your Parse Dashboard
• Added this line in the onCreate() method of Home.java:
     query.whereEqualTo(Configs.CLASSIF_IS_REPORTED, false);

IMPORTANT: If this is an update for you, you must enter your Parse Dashboard, the Classifieds class, and manually add a column of type Boolean, name it exactly "isReported" and double-click on each empty cell of that new column in order to set the cell's value as "False". In this way the reported ads will not be shown in the app.

• Added a Bitmap method into Configs.java in order to resize large images while posting an ad.
• Edited onActivityResult() method by adding this line in all 3 if statements:
       Bitmap scaledBm = Configs.scaleBitmapToMaxSize(450, bm);
Apr 23rd 2017
• Updated to Android Studio 2.3.1
• Made the layout full screen by removing these lines in all xml files:
    android:paddingBottom="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin" 
    android:paddingLeft="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin" 
    android:paddingRight="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin" 
    android:paddingTop="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"

• Changed the Home screen for a better UX: now you are able to search for any ad by keywords without selecting a category too. If you want to browse ads by category simply tap on a category cell
• Edited Home.java, home.xml, cat_cell.xml and BrowseAds.java  
• Added a 'pa_cat_cell.xml' file and edited PostAd.java in its ListAdapter code

Important Disclaimer: We’ve recently found out that some developers have bought our app templates, reskinned them just a bit and put them on sale on other source code markets similar to CodeCanyon, saying that they developed and own such source codes.
That is a serious copyright infringement, developers who buy our templates are allowed to reskin and sell them as apps on the App Store (accordingly to the License type they’ve purchased a template for), but are not allowed to put our original source codes for sale on source code markets, including CodeCanyon. We will report developers who made copyright infringements to the competent authorities. Thanks.
