Hey !
I am Aman from India, pursing B.Tech in Computer Science.
I'm interested in contributing to Wordpress during these summers through
I've been using Wordpress since 2010[www.kodevelop.com] and recently
started using the WP_android app too and want to help in further

> I've made several wordpress sites, a Wp theme and tweaked WP codebase in
the recent past.
> I've prior experience in developing and modifying android apps and code.
Also I was an Android-developer + Intern in a startup during my 6 month
training and internship period. I've uploaded 2 apps on the play store[1]
also and contributed in many others as well[2 & 3].

Currently I'm interested in the following two ideas:
1.  View Comments by Post in WordPress for iOS and Android
2.  Mobile In-app Search for Posts, Pages, Comments

I'm able to build the source code in Android studio, but Eclipse IDE is
creating some issues. Here's the error:
[2014-03-05 11:14:30 - WordPress-Android] /WordPress-Android/gen already
exists but is not a source folder. Convert to a source folder or rename it.

We can implement the first idea in long click menu in the posts activity
and add a new entry by name 'view comments'. From there take the user to
comments page and highlight/sort the comments related to that post.

Also I would like to implement a new feature(Sorting) in posts menu. The
user can sort posts on the basis of published posts, drafts and scheduled
posts or by date/tags. It can be implemented in the action bar menu by
adding a new drop down menu group with a filter like icon. The
sorting/filtering algorithm can then be used in the list adapter.

Any kind of advice or suggestions on how to proceed with the codebase would
be appreciated.
