My first app at 17 with Flutter

My name is Jack Lillie, and I am an aspiring app developer.

My First App

Last night (10/06/2019) my first app was reviewed and accepted by Apple to be published on the App Store. I was excited, after getting my app rejected three times, I was so happy to see that it finally passed the review. I had to wait 2 weeks for them to reply to my first review request (probably due to bad timing around the week of WWDC) but after the first rejection, which was last night, I fixed the bug and added information to the app store listing, and after a few back and forths with Apple, they accepted and I published my app.

The app is called “Walkiez” and it is a dog walk tracking app. Think of it as Strava or MapMyRun (great apps) but for walking your dog. The idea for this app came because I have two dogs of my own, and I thought to myself, it would be great if I could track my walks… Just kidding, my dad gave me the idea, but now that I think about it, I don’t know how I didn’t come up with it first.

In Walkiez you can track your walks, view your walk history and statistics.

What’s Next

Since I used Flutter, my app is almost ready for Android, I just need to figure out a way to do background location tracking on Android, I figured out how to do it on iOS myself, but I can’t do it for Android and the only solution I found was a $300 Flutter plugin, which I don’t have the funds for sadly.

I am excited to get your feedback and see people actually making use of my app, I think that’ll be the most rewarding part for me.

Where To Find It

Walkiez is currently only on the iOS App Store, or on the website.
