How to add tooltips to Android Apps with Pointzi

Coding tooltips can be repetitive and boring or you can provide tips that popup without writing code using the Pointzi SDK. It will take about 15minutes.

Step 1: Get an account on the Pointzi Dashboard, create an App and note your app_key, you'll need it below.

Step 2: Include Pointzi repositories in your top level build.gradle for all projects.


allprojects {
    ...
    repositories {
        ...
        maven {
            url "http://pkg.streethawk.com/artifactory/pointzi"
        }
        maven {
            url "http://pkg.streethawk.com/artifactory/streethawk"
        }
        ...
    }
    ...
}

Step 3:
Include Pointzi dependencies in your module level build.gradle.


dependencies {
    ...
    compile "com.streethawk:core:latest.release"
    compile "com.streethawk:pointzi:latest.release"
    ...
}

Step 4: Add the following code in your application's launcher activity

..
import com.streethawk.library.pointzi.Pointzi;
...

Pointzi.INSTANCE.init(getApplication(),  "<Your app_key from Pointzi Dashboard>");

Step 5: Get your App running, go back to the dashboard and follow the wizard to create your tips and view on your phone.
