Alert SA


At Gridstone, I built the Alert SA Android app as part of a suite of applications for the South Australian Government. My colleagues also developed a website and an iOS app. The service aims to deliver information and warnings to those living in South Australia, allowing users to browse nearby events and set up watch zones.

This app was the first I designed and developed with Google’s material design spec in mind. It also allowed me to make use of the very latest libraries and tools, and serves as a fine example of a modern Android Application.

Unfortunately this application is no longer maintained by Gridstone, and development effort has since shifted to another company. The app can still be found in Google Play, however the design and implementation has been replaced wholesale.
