Hi Devs!My name is Ray and I have made a few apps/games that are published on the Google Play store. You can see all my apps here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=KompletedThis is my first developer diary post because I just moved into Android application development and created a quick app that I am surprised Google published. The app is called Blank Icon and took about 80 hours of development time. Most of this time was spent learning how to work in Android so the actual development time is much shorter. If I had to create this app again, it would take at most 20 hours. Here is the promo image for the app, can you guess what it does? No clue? Here is another hint if you did not take a look at my apps. Blank Icon is the app in the middle. You can see that it is exactly what the name would suggest - a blank icon The app itself is very useful. I needed a blank icon for testing and development purposes so I made an app with a completely transparent app image. It also comes with Blank Widgets that you can add to your homescreen to space out your app icons. The reason I am very surprised that Google allowed my app to be published is because I uploaded a 512x512 transparent PNG for the app icon. I was almost expecting Google's algorithms to reject the app but it made it through! From the moment I submitted the app, it only took about an hour for it to go live. That said, the app does include a fun (ok, frustrating) minigame where the player has to find all the blank icons I hid in the app. Some more development stats:
