My project was the development of an Android application built with the Java programming language. The projected makes use of available twitter APIs to authenticate with a live twitter account and retrieve tweets from live twitter users. Selected tweets are then stored to a database for later viewing. The application is intended to aid a user in retrieving tweets that they find interesting and that they would like to keep for future reference. How often does something of interest come up in conversation where you find yourself wishing you had remembered the users twitter handle or favourited the tweet to prove your point. My app will allow the user to save tweets with a search term like ‘Comedy’. The user now only needs to remember their search term and all the Tweets tagged with keyword ‘Comedy’ will be returned. The user can then quickly selected the required tweet.
