Hey Buddy,

I wanted to get the 'Hacktoberfest' t-shirt, but haven't spent enough time on PRs.

Since I have already submitted one PR to your repo earlier this month, I put my focus on your repo to submit a few more PRs to complete the challenge.

My Plan is,

  • [x] PR-2: CircleCI integration
  • [x] PR-3: Fix Warnings using Codacy and Android Lint
  • [x] PR-4: Espresso UI Testing
  • [ ] PR-5: Firebase Test Lab/Code Coverage
  • Bonus: Fix Readme
    • Adds Circle CI Build status CircleCI in the Readme. You can update this once you create a project in CircleCI.

Still deciding on which one to do for the PR-5. Do let me know if you have a preference. I will try to do that.

Hi again,

I've seen the PRs, I'm overwhelmed and impressed. Not really sure about my preference, as I'm just being introduced to some concepts i.e. CircleCI. Best to do for me here is to is to walk on your footsteps and read up on what I'm behind on. What I like about tests is that the concept of it starts to become similar with different tech stacks. And I've always wondered how repos had those status labels on their READMEs

Submitted PR-5: Grid View for the apps on Home screen.

P.S: I spent quite a much amount of time in integrating Firebase Test lab with CircleCI, but it requires much more work in the Google Cloud Console and Firebase Console outside of code. I'm about to finish it, save for an annoying error which I think is related to billing. I may get back once I have some more time.

And also it may not help you unless testing on different devices on the cloud is a priority for you.
