Pikky | Android Social Media Application



October 16, 2018
- Updated to Android Studio 3.2
- Added this code in Home.java:
     // Recall function
     showInterestingPeople();

(you can find it right below this code):
    // Reset Array and ScrollView
   interesingLayout.removeViewAt(finalI);
   interestingPeopleArray.remove(finalI);      
   Configurations.hideHUD();

- Edited 'galleryButt.setOnClickListener()' function in SquareCamera.java
September 11, 2018
- Into the 'queryFollowersFollowingPeople()' function in UserProfile.java, I've replaced:
    int followers = objects.size();
with:
    int followers = followersArray.size();

and:
        int following = objects.size();
with:
    int following = followingArray.size();

- Removed this instance from some line in the 'showInterestingPeople()' funcion in Home.java:
     addRule(RelativeLayout.CENTER_IN_PARENT)

- Added this line below line #1321 in Home.java:
     int WH54 = (int) TypedValue.applyDimension(TypedValue.COMPLEX_UNIT_DIP, 54, getResources().getDisplayMetrics());

- Edited line #1365 in Home.java as it follows:
     lp4.setMargins(5, WH54, 5, 0);

- Edited line #1433 in Home.java as it follows:
     lp5.setMargins(5, H-WH38, 5, 5);

- Edited the following java files, in order for them to show more than 100 objects in their queries:
   Account.java
   Follow.java
   UserProfile.java
   Comments.java
   Messages.java
   Notifications.java
   Instants.java

** In order to update the above .java files, you should simply compare the new files with your old ones and perform the few code changes **

- Fixed the video preview rotation issue on some Android devices, as well as the live camera preview height stretching bug by editing Configurations.java, SquareCamera.java, EditImage.java, EditVideo.java, AutoFitTextureView.java, and VideoSurfaceView.java
– Edited edit_video.xml and edit_image.xml files

** NOTE: If you haven't changed the UI design of SquareCamera, EditVideo, and EditImage screens, the best way to update this app is to grab the files mentioned above and replace your old ones with them in the project folder. **

- Added an Instant chat messages feature:

- Added an Instant Button in the Home screen
