Are They Dead?

Are They Dead – It’s not just an app, it’s a matter of Life & Death


Developer Notes

This was my first project on elance and it has behind a fantastic idea: use freebase which offer JSON responses and allow to search for famous people. Very well designed and very well received by the users. If you look on Google Play it has very high ratings. This app is continuously updated, so keep an eye on it as new features are coming.


Tehnical details

  • Freebase querying via MQL language
  • JSON data parsing
  • HTTP calls
  • Custom controls with user TypeFace
  • AsyncTasks
  • Async image fetching
  • Neat Auto search with suggestions list Winking smile

      • Ba stie. Daca cauti dupa Michael Jackson si din lista alegi See More Results… sau apesi pe butonul Search, o sa iti apara o lista cu multi Michael Jackson. Fiecare are pentru ce e Noatable. In cazul cantaretului se pare ca e Noatable for “Award discipline” ceea ce e destul de ciudat :). Iar la detalii se poate vedea ca a murit din cauza “Cardin arrest”. Atentie, tot continutul vine de pe Freebase, care e un soi de database accesibil tuturor, deci informatiile s-ar putea sa nu fie chiar 100% accurate. Defapt, ce e ciudat e ca Whitney Huston chiar in ziua in care a murit a fost actualizata starea ei. Deci, practic comunitatea se ocupa de continut.
