? Native Android Anime App
This is a native Android app designed to showcase anime content. It was built using Android Studio and the Kotlin programming language. In the app’s user interface (UI) layer, Jetpack Compose and XML are employed. In the data layer, Room is utilized for local database management, and Retrofit is used for remote database interactions. The primary purpose of this app is to display information about anime and manga, including detailed descriptions. Developing this project was an enjoyable endeavor, and it took approximately 40 days to complete. To ensure optimal performance, benchmarking was employed to test the app’s efficiency. Additionally, a baseline profiler was utilized to enhance performance metrics, such as startup time and navigation frame rates.

Anime App follows Google’s official architecture guidance.
The overall architecture is composed of two layers; UI Layer and the data layer. Each layer has dedicated components and they each have different responsibilities. The arrow means the component has a dependency on the target component following its direction.
