• Improved the events search in the Home screen by adding an array of keywords, so we've edited submitEventButt() in and queryEvents() in

If this is an UPDATE for you, please do the following steps:
1. Enter your Parse Dashboard -> Events class and remove the "keywords" column. 
2. Create a new column of type Array and name it "keywords".
3. You now have to enter title and description of all your events into such column, field by field, as an array syntax with all lowercase words, so for example if your event has a title like "Big Event in London", and its description has something like "This is a very cool event", you have to enter this array into the 'keywords' field of that event:
We know it may be boring but it's the only way to update your app and make it able to improve search with multiple words in the Home screen. 
Anyway, after your update when users will submit an event the app will automatically create all the keywords, so the steps above are ONLY for the records already present in your Parse Dashboard.
If you've just bought the app, ignore the steps above.

Events is a full app template for you to create your own mobile Android app to store and share events all over the world. Users can submit new events to you and you can approve them by changing a value in the isPending field in your Parse Dashboard on back{4}app.

Since its backend is by Parse SDK you don’t have to buy any domain/hosting, there are NO php files to upload to a web server so you’ll save some money for sever side.
You’ve probably read that Parse is shutting down, but it’s only its hosting on that will be gone, not the SDK, this is why we’ve hosted in on

You may also use the Adminca Panel as a great alternative to insert/edit data in your Parse Dashboard, after you’ll create your app on back4app, create a free account on and create a new Panel, choose self-hosted Parse server and paste your Host, Application ID and Master Key in the relative fields (you can find them into Core Settings of your back4app app’s panel)

Events has a button to automatically add an event on your native Calendar app, open its address in Google Maps (to get directions) and share it on Facebook, Twitter, Mail, Message and all the other social apps installed on your device. It also checks if an event has ended by the date you’ll open up such event, showing you that it is passed.

This template is easy to customize, native Android Studio project, Universal, Parse SDK hosted on

We’ve recently found out that some developers have bought our app templates, reskinned them just a bit and put them on sale on other source code markets similar to CodeCanyon, saying that they developed and own such source codes.
That is a serious copyright infringement, developers who buy our templates are allowed to reskin and sell them as apps on the App Store (accordingly to the License type they’ve purchased a template for), but are not allowed to put our original source codes for sale on source code markets, including CodeCanyon.
We will report developers who made copyright infringements to the competent authorities.
