October Check-In

October Check-In

September and early October have been very busy for the Address Infinite application. Most of the work has been focused on heavy programming and GUI testing. The controller that handles the business logic is almost complete, leaving the detailed work in each of the application areas left to complete. A navigatable shell of the application can be compiled now although the ability to save contacts and utilize the blockchain is still a work in progress.

The class structure code can be downloaded here. This is a stripped down version of the various classes and methods of the application.

Questions regarding feedback on work.

My questions mostly relate to user experience since development of the core functionality is still a work in progress and will not be testable for another couple weeks.

- I am contemplating a login system that remembers who you are. Would you find an auto-login address book useful or would you prefer a system that expires your login after a certain amount of time? This is a multi-platform address book so my main considerations relate to privacy and usability expectations.

- The Address Infinite application currently uses a traditional windowed graphical user interface like most desktop applications. Would you find it useful to encompass access to an address book application within the System Tray or Taskbar with a small icon in either the top left or bottom right of the screen depending on your Operating System?
