What is Boats?
Boats is a client for Voat.co. Voat is a website that's similar to Reddit, but emphasises no censorship and to be a platform for free speech.
Boats is currenty available for Android only. However, the code is developed in a portable way, so it can run on iOS and Windows Phone, except for the UI part which had to be native.
What makes Boats different?
That I actually listen to feedback and respond. Check Google reviews or /v/boats, I also reply to all emails.
Why did I start Boats?
I was "lurking" on Voat.co for a while and I saw that the community is asking for an Android app. I also had free time and I wanted to learn Android programming.
I saw a good opportunity to create something that's driven by the community's input and feedback. I knew it will be a fun thing to do and that I will get a positive response, and that it was.
That was it, three months later, I finally published and I made the following thread in /v/introductions:
Hi I'm Space Monkey, and I bring a new Android App to you !
