BACKGROUND OF PROJECT
I m Anurag , BE First Year Student Of CSE at Bangalore. I m currently
working on an android app of mine and I m looking for some opportunity to
work for open source community.
I can design the UI of opens SUSE News/Planet on Android in such a
way that it will be highly responsive , fluid and attractive of course. I
can also do the coding for the app as I can use
Intents,Services,BroadcastReceivers,Handler ,thread,Fragments,etc .
IDEA (DEVELOPER CONSOLE):-
I came up with an idea that this app must have a separate column for the
suse developers where they can login with their username and password and
post some thread or they can discuss some ideas with other developers on the
go as android device is common tool of any developer.
IDEA (COMMON USER LOOKOUT):-
I would also like to add login support for common user of suse.They can
login with their own unique username and password synced with their suse pc.
After they are logged in they could be able to see all the packages
installed in their system, any update available for any package or not .This
android app should also show the top, most downloaded package on suse.
IDEA (BRINGING NEW USERS):-
There must be another column that reflects the brightness of suse to
a person who haven't used suse till now. This app will demonstrate the
remarkable features of suse who are unknown to suse and it will surely
attract them towards suse.
As I mentioned above I am currently working on my own android app , I would
like to show you the glimpse of my app .Since my coding is still going on
,it have some bugs and lacks some function but it is a matter of time I will
make it complete.
My app is a FileManager type app which is capable of taking backup
of installed apps and can perform some basic file operations like
deletion,etc.The whole app of mine is being coded on FragmentActivity And
Fragments. My app can run on Android 1.6 to Android 4.1.2. I have also used
the external library for my current project.
** For Best results Use android device having screen size 4 inch and
I have included my apk link , if you wish you can see my work.
If I get a chance to work with suse community ,definitely I am gonna to be
benefited as suse is open source community and they are always ready to
share knowledge with others. I will try my best even if it takes the
eternity to benefit suse community with my work somehow.About 2 years back I
started to work on Ubuntu and then onwards I totally migrated from windows
to Linux OS.
The person should have knowledge about Android API's,Java,XML. If suse is
impressed with my idea of "Developer Console" and "Common User
then to implement them in an android app ,suse needs to provide their own
API for android or any External Library , that's what I believe.
i) If I am having a mentor guiding me throughout this course of 3
months I will surely complete this app .
ii) I am great fan of open source terminology and I always wanted to
work with them anyhow and I will myself make my app open to all.
iii) Whatever project is proposed by your side ,it is within my limits of
iv) If get a chance to work with you I will gain something and again I
future I will come up with more ideas and more programming skills.
LONG TERM PLAN
I am really excited to work on long term basis with suse of any other open
source community if I get a chance. After the GSOC 2013 I would like to
continue this project own my own for suse until it becomes the ace . Even
though if GSOC ends I will continue working on android and if I work on an
android app of suse for long term basis I will definitely get the support
for your side and will boost my skill as well as I will be able to

I would like to get response from your side on my project as soon as
possible so that I will prepare myself,
Thanking you in anticipation.
