Re: Android apps and Odoo 9

For v9 Enterprise mobile is part of the deal so probably makes an app less attractive.

A little bit off-topic.

I'm just starting on my first internal development for a particular android app.  Is a little bit different as has to work offline and out of reception and limited to a very custom application (taking photos of deliveries in remote locations).

So far I have got as far as.
Using anybox guide for server connection to OpenERP over JSON-RPC although abstracting into a generic class with its own preferences screen (also I don't allow self-signed certs for SSL).
Because I hate/don't really know Java is just create JSON request endpoints and write in python rather than use the generic call_kw endpoint for common calls.
Offline storage using SQLite (basically the QRCode stores the minimal amount of data needed to create the record).
QR Code scanning using zxing IntentIntegrator in android and using pyqrcode to generate in Odoo.

Need to do a bit more like porting the existing xml-rpc android libs for openerp.

For IDE using AndroidStudio which if you use Pycharm is a very small learning curve.

Nothing published yet but I plan to write about the process once I get it done in a few weeks.  From what I can see, provided things are coded correctly and not using offline storage the effort from 8 to 9 would be minimal especially if they started with JSON-RPC.

While it is only one little micro app can already see that we will do more in future so am trying to generalize were possible for publishable stuff.

It is actually a good question Android or iOS odoo apps

When looking to the reviews i.e. in IOS they seem to be far below zero and lots of crashes.

Can actually somebody recommend odoo apps for iOS and Andoid which work in 8 and some which work in 9 successfully and where people are happy with?

What kind of functionality would actually be needed for those apps. What gets often used!

I see that the odoo apps are splitted up in many small apps which makes a bit sense IMHO (easier to keep updated)  if they are capable to communicate with the same application.

What are the experiences? What apps are you using?

There are quite a few Android apps to interact with Odoo in various ways. Problem is that many of them are updated seldom, and all i have seen predate Odoo 9. So question is: are there any Odoo apps for Android that support 9?
