I'll be working on an Android app for a weekend project this weekend. The API leaves a bit to be desired at the moment, but it looks like I can create a native wrapper around the site and use native widgets for stuff like logging in. I think it'll work well.

Here's the big question though: Will it be material design?

Yes, of course! I'll even have transparent notification and navigation bar support on devices that support it (I'm surprised at the number of apps that don't support this...it's like 5 lines of code, most of which are just XML, and super easy to implement). At least where possible. I've been working on a Material Design app at my day job and I love working with it. The main content and comment threads will probably have to be webviews though so not MD...at least for the first version. I'll dig in a little more once I start working on the app (maybe tonight) and see exactly what I can do, but I don't think I'm going to be able to rely on the current public API much. I'm interested in seeing the new API /u/puttitout is working on and then migrate away from webviews to that when its ready. But title bar, login prompt, and menu options should be able to be Material Design. I'm also interested in scraping subverse CSS and having the app theme itself to match the subverse you are browsing (the app I work on at my day job does something similar).

Is there a roadmap for the future API endpoints? /u/puttitout

I live in Japan and I can't say I've ever seen a Windows Phone. If there's a way to develop an app without needing a physical device, I can look in to it, but a more experienced dev with access to a real device would probably be able to make a better app.
