• Added this additional if clause in the 'submitButt()' method in SubmitEvent.java, so the app won't crash in case you forget to add Start and End dates while submitting a new Event:
    startDate == null || endDate == null || yourNameTxt.getText().toString().matches("") ||
                        yourEmailTxt.getText().toString().matches("")

• Edited the 'eventObj.saveInBackground()' method in SubmitEvent.java in order to allow users to open Gmail or Mail apps after submitting an Event and email the admin of the app about it.
• Added 2 EditText views in submit_event.xml in order to submit your full name and email address to the Admin.

Events is a full app template for you to create your own mobile app to store and share events from all over the world. Users can submit new events to you and you can approve them by changing a value in the isPending field in your Parse Dashboard on back{4}app.

Since its backend is by Parse you don’t have to buy any domain/hosting, there are NO php files to upload to a web server so you’ll save some money for sever side.

You may also use the Adminca Panel as a great alternative to insert/edit data in your Parse Dashboard, after you’ll create your app on back4app, create a free account on http://adminca.com and create a new Panel, choose self-hosted Parse server and paste your Host, Application ID and Master Key in the relative fields (you can find them into Core Settings of your back4app app’s panel)

Events has a button to automatically add an event on your native Calendar app, open its address in Google Maps (to get directions) and share it on Facebook, Twitter, Mail, Message and all the other social apps installed on your device. It also checks if an event has ended by the date you’ll open up such event, showing you that it is passed.

This template is easy to customize, native Android Studio project, Universal, Parse SDK hosted on http://back4app.com

Can I host Parse Server on my own server?

Yes, although I don’t provide support for the setup process, you can read the official Guide here: http://parseplatform.org

What about free support for this template?

I can offer free support for bugs encountered in the original code. Instead, if you’ve edited the code and messed something up with it, I may apply some fee to fix it either via TeamViewer or by checking your app project files directly on my computer.

How do I rename the app’s package name?

Read this tutorial to learn how to rename a package name: https://hubpages.com/technology/Android-How-to-rename-an-app-package

Should I use the latest version of Android Studio to edit this template?

Yes, I always update my apps to the latest version of the IDE and you also should make sure you’ve updated the Android Tools to their latest version by the Android SDK manager.

The demo APK crashes on startup

Make sure that the minimum Android version of your device is the one listed in the FEATURES section below. If the problem persist, please contact me by my profile’s contact form and send me the Logcat message of you get when the app crashes along with the steps you made to reproduce the crash. Please note that not all real devices print an error Logcat message, in this case just run the APK into the Android Studio’s emulator and you’ll surely get the red messages about your issue.

How do I remove AdMob banner ads?

  1. Enter the .xml files where there’s an AdView and remove its code:
        <com.google.android.gms.ads.AdView
            android:id="@+id/admobBanner" 
            android:layout_width="wrap_content" 
            android:layout_height="wrap_content" 
            ads:adSize="BANNER" 
            ads:adUnitId="@string/ADMOB_BANNER_UNIT_ID" 
            android:layout_alignParentBottom="true" 
            android:layout_centerHorizontal="true">
        </com.google.android.gms.ads.AdView>
    
  2. Enter the .java files where there’s an AdRequest instance into its onCreate() method and remove its code:
            // Init AdMob banner
            AdView mAdView = (AdView) findViewById(R.id.admobBanner);
            AdRequest adRequest = new AdRequest.Builder().build();
            mAdView.loadAd(adRequest);
    
  3. Lastly, remove the play-services-ads reference in the build.gradle file:
        compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-ads:+'

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.
