View Comments by Post in WordPress for iOS and Android - I was interested

Hi Aarushi,

The idea behind this project is it would be great if there was a way for
a user to view all the comments for a particular post, perhaps as a list
on some kind of post detail screen.  Ideally a user would be able to
view, moderate, reply, and edit those comments, just as they would from
the existing comments feature in the Android and iOS apps.  If its
helpful, WordPress for Windows Phone already has this functionality.

For a GSoC project, you'd probably want to pick either iOS or Android,
but not both.

You're also welcome to come chat with GSoC mentors in #wordpress-gsoc
and with the mobile devs in #wordpress-mobile in IRC on freenode.net.

Cheers,
Eric

Okay, so let's say if I were to pick up Android, how should I go on about
it? And what are the prerequisite skills for doing this project? And where
should I start from?

H Aarushi,

A good starting point would be to read through the Android section of
the mobile handbook:
http://make.wordpress.org/mobile/handbook/

And to start getting familiar with the android code base:
https://github.com/wordpress-mobile/WordPress-Android

Cheers
Eric

In reply to this post by Aarushi Karnany
Hey Eric and Aarushi,

Awais Imran here (IRC: waisybabu). I was reading the conversation
between you, and Aarushi. I am interested in working on the WordPress
for Android app as well. For now, I am considering if I should work on
either 'Mobile In-App Search for Posts, Pages, and Comments' or 'View
Comments by Post', or both.

I have beginner-level experience with Android development, having
co-developed a popular screenshot utility called 'ShotDrop'. It has
received over 25,000+ downloads on the Play Store, so far. I do not
consider myself an expert, but I am a quick, self-motivated learner.

What would you recommend for me to do?

Re: Wordpress Project GSOC '14

Eric Johnson
Hi Awais,

Its up to you to decide. :)  I suggest you look into what would be
needed for each project, then decide which one you feel more comfortable
with, and which one interests you the most.

Cheers,
Eric
