Android Developers Challenge

I have submitted my application to the Android Developers Challenge! Now I can tell you all about it! It's called Goings On! and uses the internal GPS and internet connectivity to find out what events are going on around you, no matter where you are in the world! It performs its search based on your preferences so that it only returns events that you would be interested in. you can check out the Goings On! page for some screenshots!

Nomad: A Poetry Collection

I just uploaded a new kind of application to the market. It's a collection of poems that were published by Corey Borders, a member of the Moo Productions team. The collection was published as a physical chapbook in 2008 and now it is an Android application. To check it out you can go to the Market and search "Nomad" or just follow this link on your phone.

Geocacher Cupcake Update

I have just uploaded a new version of Geocacher that has been updated to work with Cupcake. Included in this update are several bug fixes and enhancements.

Bug Fixes
There was a problem when marking waypoints that meant that you could only mark one at a time.
There was a bug in how the geocaches were stored that trashed the logs.

Enhancements
You can now load in the waypoints file associated with pocket queries
You can use the Linda File Manager to open *.gpx and *.loc files in Geocacher
You can now sort the cache list by found caches
I added a button in the About Page that links to the tutorials on this site.
I reorganized some things in the menus.

There has been some confusion over how to load geocaches into Geocacher so I have written a pair of tutorials that show how this works step-by-step. They can be found here:

GeoDroid -> Geocacher

It turns out that there was an existing Android application called Geodroid, so I have changes the name of my project to Geocacher, it's not as snappy, but hey, at least it's not already taken! ;) The good news is that I found this out because the Android Market started accepting pay apps last week to be available this week! So the very first version of the newly christened Geocacher will be available for download in just a few days! In anticipation I have tweaked the Geocacher page and uploaded all new screenshots!
