As mentioned in post #20, it's possible (I'd like likely even) that we'll offer an ad hoc download from the LQ site at some point. One problem with that is you lose out on being notified of updates. Because of that, we may wait until the app has been tested a little bit more. We're open to discussion on the topic, however.

That is nice to hear. Don't rush on my account. We may sell the bugger and just get some cheap track phone for me or just not bother to get one at all. We do have a strange thing called a land line.

I just do not seem cut out for cell phones. After years of working livestock in all weather my hands are a little coarse. Cell phones are too small to be easy to use.

I have trouble navigating the weather site (Wunderground) on the Android as the screen size is such that I can't hardly touch it without bringing up an add or some other thing I don't want. If I could find the config files I could change the sensitivity of the screen (just a hair would do it) and all would be fine. If I can't do it in a tractor seat or horse back it is just not worth the hassle.

It would be nice to be able to completely disconnect from what I am doing, given the chance, and check up on what is going on here. Rest the brain from hunting heifers or whatever is a good thing. Most of what I do is pretty intense and you can get easily hurt if you push it too far. Breaks are far between and you need little tricks to keep sharp. I know a couple guys that seem to be able to get about an hours worth of sleep in 10 minutes. I can't. I prefer unrelated mental gymnastics to recharge for what I am doing.

Angry Its a NO-GO here!

Attempted the download...
but,

The SUPERPAD 'doesnt qualify as a phone'... and it wont let me download it.

Not sure what this app would need other than internet access... which it has thru wireless AND hard-wire...

Oh well.

Guess I'll go back to playing Majong... the only thing I do with it anyway.

Odd, I was able to download and run it on my Nook Color running Android 3.0. I will have to try it under an earlier Android release.

What might be different on mine is that I installed CM7.0.2-encore on my internal memory, there must still be a vestige of B&N stuff there.
For model number it reports NookColor.

Not downloadable from the Market for the Achos 101 tablet either. I can get it from the first post (I think) but perhaps the parameters should be changed so any device can download the app from the market.

I'm curious - while I've yet to install it, I'm looking at the what the app wants to access. Most of it seems normal save for accessing the GPS feature.

What does it need GPS for?

EDIT: Next time I promise to read the whole thread before asking a question that was already answered, I promise :P

If you're not able to download the app from the market and are interested in installing it, please contact me offline. After I've verified that it works on a couple devices, I'll make the app available in this thread. Thanks for the continued feedback.

Hey jeremy,

This has been something that I have been looking for for sometime. Great effort mate. UI looks brilliant. As soon as I saw the link, I just downloaded it and it looks cool.

Thanks,
Abi

ads

Any way to turn the ads off? My xperia x10 mini pro has so little screen realestate that the ads are actually painfully annoying.

There is no way to turn the ads off at this time, although that should be coming in a future version.

Jeremy kindly send me the app archive for testing, but unfortunately it didn't install on my Android device (Archos 10.1 Tablet PC). I'm now installing the Android SDK to see if I can identify the offending parts preventing installation and try to resolve those. Don't hold your breath for it, I'm no coder, not even by a long shot!!

[edit: Eclipse fails to install (it's not in the Debian Lenny repo) so for now I'm stuck until I resolve that. One step at a time though...]
