16 Mar 15 Android + Eclipse

The bane of my existence today; After about ~5 Eclipse crashes this morning, I’m considering using my Windows 10 laptop for todays dev work. Here’s what Eclipse Luna is presenting to me on Ubuntu 14.04:


Errors occurred during the build.
Error instantiating builder 'com.android.ide.eclipse.adt.PreCompilerBuilder'.

15 Mar 15 Protecting your privacy on your devices

I get sick to my stomach every time I read a story about someone getting into trouble at a port of entry or similar location because they don’t want their privacy violated. I think its absurd that someone in a position of authority can demand your device unlock sequence and then do who know what with your information and content. So all things considered, I created an Android application which will accept user defined unlock sequences to perform various actions. For instance, if you took some pictures that are personal and you don’t want the individual holding your device to access them, you could give them the sequence which deletes all your pictures/videos; et voila! problem solved. I created two versions of the application (Paid/Free); The free version allows you to set your standard device unlock sequence and also allows the “emergency” sms feature. This feature would send a message to a user defined phone number when the device owner is in some sort of emergency situation. I hope people find the app useful and if anyone has any other ideas to improve the app, let me know.

Today I decided to release the AIR / Actionscript source for my Google Play app for broadcasting to Flash media servers; you can find it on github https://github.com/mondain/BroadcasterFreeAS

Enjoy

17 Jan 12 Android Market

I have created pro version of my broadcaster app for Android and Blackberry (playbook). The pro version allows for FMS or Red5 authentication as well as selection of all available cameras / microphones. The next two things I’ll be adding are i10n/i18n and h.264; the latter may not be possible in mobile air but I’ll give it a go.

Pro: https://market.android.com/details?id=air.org.gregoire.mobile.BroadcasterPro

Free: https://market.android.com/details?id=air.Broadcaster

The free version probably won’t be seeing any updates since I hate working on it in Flash CS5.

Lastly, If there’s enough interest I’ll do a version for iOS.

Update 1/18/12

I got h264 publish working in Android last night! woot! What a pain that was.. I need to verify that all is well with the stream data and my modifications to the application then I’ll put the update in the market.

Update #2 1/18/12

The latest pro build is up on the market 1.0.3, it allows you to stream h.263 or h.264 from your Android device. Enjoy!

07 May 09 Azdroids

I wrote a new Android application today while on my “Vacation”, this one is based on one of my favorite classic games – Asteroids. I still have a lot of bugs and clean up to complete, but by looking at the screencast you can see that it is playable.

06 May 09 My first Android application

Quite some time ago, I wrote an application for the Danger Hiptop that displayed falling text like in the Matrix. I have decided to port this to Android as my first “learning” application. Here is a screencast of my first “working” version. I also want to point out that I wasn’t able to port the application but instead have rewritten it from scratch; which is probably better in the long-run.

After having some other things to do etc.. heres an update after 2 or so hours

Ok, so I went and had dinner with the family and then worked on it a bit more, without further adieu –
Best and latest build

I have also packaged it up as an unsigned apk, but you cannot load this unless your phone has Cupcake (1.5); which for me and the rest of the US is sometime next week. :(
