Assignment – Palindrome Tester App


This application draws on prior coursework (ITEC 2140, ITEC 2150 and ITEC 2110) to build a simple mobile application that allows a user to enter a text into a single text field. The application detects when text is entered and evaluates the text,  providing both graphical and textual feedback which indicates if the text is a palindrome.

I utilized some existing code, with the source link provided below. The class includes a three-arg, private, recursive check method, which is wrapped by an overloaded, one-arg, public check method. External callers, like myself, call the one-arg check method, which returns a boolean when passed a string. That boolean is then processed and the feedback is provided, as described previously.


  • One activity is needed
  • EditText component is provided for text entry
  • Feedback is provided as text and by updating an image

Sample screens were provided as follows:
