Hi everyone. I read some threads where you explain the reason why you don’t want to create an official android app for Common Voice.
I’m part of Mozilla Italia and many users ask if exist an android app to contribute.
For this reason, I decided to develop an android app (unofficial) for Common Voice project. It’s open-source and it’s on Github (link at the end of the thread).
I developed this app with the support of Italian community of Mozilla: Mozilla Italia, and especially thanks to Damiano Gualandri and Simone Massaro, who tested it and helped me. The app is developed in Kotlin, via Android Studio.
The idea of the app is to improve the experience also on mobile, because the website is very slow (on mobile) and there are too muc-h effects. In the app, instead, you can record/validate just with few clicks.
The app, now, is a “Alpha version” and the “Speak” section doesn’t send the audio to the server (I’ve some problems, maybe someone else can help me to understand how to send an audio file to cv server, as post request)
Now it shows the UI in English and in Italian (based on device language), but you can set the language for Record/Validate (in Settings) -> now supported English, Italian, French, German and Spanish.
You can find 3 big sections: Home, Dashboard and Settings.
In Home you can go to Speak ans Listen sections. You can also do the log-in/sign-up, and see information of your profile.
In Dashboard you can find Statistics (everyone’s statistics and, if you are logged-in, yours) and also the Voices online.
In Settings you can change your native language (which is used to show sentences and clips), link to go to Github repo, Paypal donation and credits.
I hope you’ll like this app, these are some useful links:

To send a feedback or report a bug, please open an issue on github instead of review negatively the app.
