  2. Open the project using Android Studio.


1. A created project on Firebase console.2. A create a project on Google console.


Step by step explanation of how to get a dev environment running.

1. To enable Firebase Authentication:        a. Go to the authentication tab at the Firebase console and enable Email/Password and Google Sign-in methods.        b. download `google-services.json` and add it to the app.2. To enable Google Maps:    a. Go to APIs & Services at the Google console.    b. Select your project and go to APIs & Credentials.    c. Create a new api key and restrict it for android apps.    d. Add your package name and SHA-1 signing-certificate fingerprint.    c. Enable Maps SDK for Android from API restrictions and Save.    d. Copy the api key to the `google_maps_api.xml`3.

Project Instructions

If there is no account, the app should navigate to a Register screen.2. Create a Register screen to allow a user to register using an email address or a Google account.3. Create a screen that displays the reminders retrieved from local storage. If there are no reminders, display a   "No Data"  indicator.  If there are any errors, display an error message.4. Create a screen that shows a map with the user's current location and asks the user to select a point of interest to create a reminder.5.

Reminder data should be saved to local storage.7. For each reminder, create a geofencing request in the background that fires up a notification when the user enters the geofencing area.8. Provide testing for the ViewModels, Coroutines and LiveData objects.9. Create a FakeDataSource to replace the Data Layer and test the app in isolation.10. Use Espresso and Mockito to test each screen of the app:    a. Test DAO (Data Access Object) and Repository classes.    b. Add testing for the error messages.    c. Add End-To-End testing for the Fragments navigation.
