Description

Buzzer is a full-working template (UI + Source Code) that has get many social network features, like Twitter.


PLEASE NOTE: this app template is NOT a complete clone of Twitter, I’m not allowed to do that, nor I want to do that, I want to keep my templates original.
The concept of Buzzer is very close to the Twitter’s one, but it has got a different design and some features are missing, some other are included, and some are new – in order not to replicate the Twitter’s ones.

You can post text, videos, images, and animated GIFs, browse buzzes from other people and create or join Collections of posts you are interested.
Users can follow people, report inappropriate content/profiles, search for hashtags, keywords or names. A private chat is included in the template, as well as bookmarks and drafts sections.
The Settings screen offers several options like change your password, check muted and blocked accounts, media previews, and much more.

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.

• Check out the Features section below to see what this app does.
Read the online Documentation to learn how to configure the template’s features and the database (Parse Dashboard).
• Keep an eye to the Change Log on the bottom of this page when an update gets released.

Backend

It’s backend is by Parse Server and it’s hosted on back4app – NO MySQL database involved.
Parse Server is flexible, reliable, open source, based on Node.js and well supported by a large community of developers, and back4app is a great BaaS hosting website where you can configure your database, Push Notifications and other features in just a few clicks.

Post any text, a video, a GIF, images (up to 4/post) and URLs – The screen where you post your buzzes has a custom keyboard’s toolbar that offers the mention, hashtag, location, GIF and media buttons for you to quickly set the content of your posts

Custom users search for @metions while posting a Buzz – A dropdown menu pops up when you are about to mention someone, for you to select the people you want

140 characters limit for Buzzes text – You can edit that characters limitation, anyway it’s a good standard for short and clean posts

Reply to Buzzes – In the details page of a Buzz, you can reply to it as a new post. Replies will be shown below the main post

Rebuzz (re-post) Buzzes – Like twitter, you can repost a Buzz and the community will see who did that. You can also tap on the username mentioned in the rebuzz label to see his/her profile

Delete your on Buzzes – Changed your mind about a post? Then get rid of it from its details screen

Pin a Buzz to your profile – You can stick one of your favorite posts to the top of the list in your account

Follow, mute or block Users – Privacy matters nowadays, so you are allowed to block un-wanted people, as well as mute their content

Report inappropriate Users or Content – Help the Admin and the community finding abusive contents, so the app can be always clean and free from non-wanted posts or people. This feature is also required by the App Store.

The Admin gets an email after a report has been submitted – The app calls a simple PHP file – hosted on your own server – that fires an email that includes details about the issue for the reported User or Buzz

Profile screen with cover and avatar images – Enjoy the nice design of the Account screen

Filter Buzzes for media or liked ones – Take advantage of the custom search filter feature to browse posts with your desired options

Online Documentation – Read the extensive guide of this template to be able to configure it properly.

Requirements

The latest official version of Android Studio – Beta versions of an IDE usually never work 100% properly, and the code of this app has been written using the latest official version of AS (download it here. You must use it and avoid Betas.

An Apple Mac or Windows computer, updated to its latest OS version – It’s always good to keep your computer’s OS up to date, technology keeps growing and I follow its changes, as well as updating my templates every time a new OS gets released.

A Google Play Developer Account – This is needed for you to publish apps on the Play Store. You can still edit and test this template on Android Studio without that account though.

Basic knowledge of Android Studio and Java/XML language – You don’t need to be a skilled or professional developer, anyway it’s recommended to have at least the basic knowledge of what you’re dealing with, in order to be able to customize this template and publish your applications on the Play Store.

A free account on back4app.com – You can create and edit your Parse App and database, get the necessary keys for configurations and test this template for free. It has limitations though, so please check the Pricing table and consider subscribing for a paid plan after your app got published on the App Store.

An active AdMob account – Unless you want to remove ads in this app, you need to sign up for an AdMob account to display them.

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.

A hosting server with PHP 5.6 or higher enabled – GoDaddy is a good choice to create your domain and hosting and upload the PHP file included in the package. NO 000webhost.com or other free hosting providers!
