The magic logout button

Episode Summary

This episode is about a button I had to implement into a mobile app in the past. Its basic action was to logout the user. At that time we also had the requirement to logout the user automatically after some minutes. Unfortunately the app had some primary promoted sale features for offline use, which required to keep the user logged in somehow. Sounds crazy? It was! Just listen to me begging on my knees to change functionality, fighting with projectmanagers and the outcome of this story.
