    Default Licence Tracking App

    Hey all, hope I am on the right category.
    Since most of us got to spend some time at home over this lockdown period I went ahead and made an app to automatically check SAPS' website for the status of licence applications and renewals.
    Got frustrated with waiting for an update and wanted some button on my phone that I can bash to vent frustrations.

    It is free and will remain so.
    It doesn't do anything malicious like ads or collect user data
    Allows the user to schedule a renewal reminder once it sees an approved application
    Can also process SAPS SMSes through a little work around since Google's T&C's disallows you from accessing SMSes directly.

    It can be found here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....wheres_my_app
    I hope someone can find some use from it.
    I certainly had a good time developing it over 5 or 6 days

    I have downloaded your app, thank you very much for not adding ads.

    From what I have gathered is that the CFR only updates the status of the application between 1 and 3ish in the morning.

    If you check after 12 and before 1 it will show the previous days date but if you check after 1, the website doesn't return any information.

    3 of my applications also showed no movement at 9 the previous night but at 5 the next morning all 3 moved to the next stage.

    Cool.
    The app has a setting built in the automatically check every hour / day / week etc;
    I have also hard coded the app not to bother people between 11 and 6 at night. I HATE updates while I am trying to sleep.
    Let me know if you pick up on problems / issues or improvements.

    Oh, I just spent 10min thinking about your comments on 1-3am
    Most likely scenario here is that the system runs a process every night between 1 and 3 to tally up the day's changes in application status and apply those changes to the website's database.
    Why I say so:

    1. That is what I would have done
    2. The fact that a date is listed on the website indicating when the last update occured

    Well done! Much more convenient than the website.

    The only issue I have is reading the small text on a scratch screen.

    A nice to have feature would be a counter to add the number working days to each application, the capture date would probably have to be added.

    Brilliant. Thanx Shadow.
    Installed the App.
    Currently have 2 applications in process, and both are spot-on on the APP.

    Thanks for your efforts. My renewal application for a shotgun shows "in process"
