Project Remote: Report 3

Time for yet another report on the progress of the app!
Last week
I prepared for the future integration with Stoffi cloud services. Since the server was not ready to handle requests concering the users configuration, I created a temporary server simulator that responded to the apps requests just like the server would. I also created the classes required to handle the logged in users configuration and pulling/pushing this data to the server, as well as a temporary GUI with buttons and sliders to change the user configuration.

Challenges
Making the configuration manipulation as flexible as possible.

This Week
The upcoming week is the one where it all happens: This weeks goal is to connect the app to the cloud services, allowing the user of the app to remotely control a desktop players state! :)
