Proposal work done for week 5 & 6 - Alpha available in Play Store 🥳

Presentation of work done

Announcements

I'm super stoked for this update as a lot of things have happened both regarding the progress on the Haveyoubeenhere app but also on the business side of things, guess what, I'm moving to Georgia (the country) to set up the company there!

Another big announcement is that we now have a first version on the Android Play Store as a super-duper-early developers alpha. Do keep in mind that this is a test version and not a final product. There will be bugs and features missing, however there will be changes coming all the time. We'll try to roll-out a new update bi-weekly or faster, but we're also tied a bit by how fast Google can review the updates.

If you want to jump right in: the link for the app in the play store 🥳

For those of you who think this is not experimental enough, reach out to me and I'll hit you up with the latest APK version.
