Developing an App with M-16

Every soldier should always protect a second front in order to have a reason to fight

In Israel the army service unlike a CPU process is a lifetime experience. You don't know how you will end up tomorrow, but you are already willing you will end up today

Have you ever wondered how does the experience of Matrix and Harry Potter movies scenes creators’ look like? Vitali.Pom – a promised and skillful developer with cinematic life from Israel decided to bring out the sugar out of the Android’s Nougat with majestic graphical effects that you want to dive for.

All of us are already familiar with Matrix and Harry Potter films effects concepts: a chair appears, a chair disappears and a chair is broken on someone’s head…

Leaving aside the violence part — with such beautiful conceptual composition and futuristic effects, where everything is flying around and impresses us so much, making us want to touch the screen, why it doesn’t get even close to making into the graphical effects of the touch screens on our mobile phones?

The technology is there, the capabilities are out there as well… Then why most of our mobiles phone apps’ software providers yet think it is fine enough to satisfy us with an Ease In effect?

No. It doesn’t cost so much money, nor consuming your battery. But it definitely brings out the sugar out of the Android’s Nougat.

A prominent developer from Israel, who signs as Vitali.Pom has stepped back to school to solve out this problem. He developed for over a three years on the branches of the university and in parallel to a going army’s duty operation a keyboard that just does everything you need, but also makes your phone do much-much more on behalf of that and in addition to what we call daily regularly usages.

EffectedKeyboard, the app that Vitali started to offer his roommate soldiers while standing counter-terrorist fight inside of Israel along with the whole army in Protective Edge operation; indeed it has everything you need. It has most of the available languages for download.

Vitali, who signs as vitali.pom in the Google Play Store claims every soldier should always protect a second front in order to have a reason to fight.

”At the time I was in the army, I had not established yet my own family, technology and university along with my ongoing parallel Job Life at Intel were my second part of the life, which I had to believe I can live and fight for… ” Vitali reached the university at the age of 16 according to his LinkedIn profile, while he was in 9th out of 12 school grades in parallel ”of course I started the university at the time, I dreamt big to succeed.”

In Israel, as the news reporter begins to say something about security practice men who talk about Krav Maga Israeli teachers who were sent to teach the Hindi Police people to stand still and properly fight against the terror actions, we realize there is always a place to fight for. Jerusalem, unlike in the West is as holy for the whole 3 racing religion people.

Vitali, who maybe won too much time to lay down in his pocket, tells us there is not too much effort you can investigate in an app. ”I indeed think we always shall have a second front, in family life you have to support each other in addition to your ordinary day job, in the army you just need a reason. Technology and the fun of the soldiers was my reason to leave the bed in the morning. The technical part was just simply a tool to bring them that.”

Any keyboard has to be battery supportive — claims vitali.pom. People today write a lot. A lot! The black AMOLED color on a behalf of an impressive theme will allow you to type for almost two days with one charge of the battery on your One Plus 5 gives us Vitali his latest experience as the example. The black pixels will turn off half of your screen and half your battery charge will simply just not go away he explains the magic. It’s amazing how they win on the part of the power consumption. Even the letters that are very well seen on the brightest sunlight day screen are half-way black. Moreover, the graphic engine will not even render once every animation stops.

So indeed EffectedKeyboard developers included almost anything a human hand needs as it touches a touchscreen-keyboard: numeric keypad on the top of the keyboard which makes it really a comfortable toy to type in and a slide-to-swipe effect where you can slide your finger right on the keys of your keyboard from any screen in order to clean up and fix any mistype operation. Honestly speaking, the last feature might indeed affect and speed up your typing.

”I saw many of my friends chatting with their upcoming holiday friends and families whom they will see next month or in the weekend and I just wanted to make them happy to do it on the tool they use for it.”

Vitali explains, “In Israel the army service unlike a CPU process is a lifetime experience. You don’t know how you will end up tomorrow, but you are already willing you will end up today”

But looks like Vitali stepped properly into the cinematography heads topics, and he puts the last byte into his software, the effects are nice and raised an eyebrow on us, up to the very preening geek.

”You see? I thought to myself, why not making an app I had dreamt for. If I will make my keyboard be as impressive as the Matrix effects, then people will do enjoy it and will be glad of typing to their friends. Typing letters on your brand new phone shall not be drag or a pain killer process, it should be fun! You shall not want to leave the fingers from your phone when you are leaving a message to your boss, you shall want to dive inside of it. Live animations make the typing fun. Really fun.”
