The End of BeMeWeightPoints

The Google app "BeMeWeightPoints" has been unpublished. The "Weight Watchers"company contacted me and notified me of their copyright on the word "POINTS", so I can't publish it anymore. The app was downloaded nearly 100,000 times, it was free and without adds.

Thanks and regards

Thank You Google for the Free Nexus One

Two weeks ago I received an email from Google, saying:

"Due to your contribution to the success of Android Market, we would like to present you with a brand new Android device as part of our developer device seeding program. You are receiving this message because you're one of the top developers in Android Market with one or more of your applications having a 3.5 star or higher rating and more than 5,000 unique downloads. "

Well, today it actually came by Fedex as they promised. It is an amazing phone, and it will help to create new content for the Android operating system. So for that I have to say: Thank You Google for the Free Nexus One phone!

BeMeBlackBox Released

BeMeBlackBox for the Android operating system is an app for your vehicle.
What it does is simple: It continuously records and deletes video from a windshield mounted phone. When you crash, or when you press the Save button, it saves the last X seconds, and the previous video file just in case. You can set the length of the video file.
If selected, it will also upload the file automatically to YouTube.
No more saying "I wish I had recorded that!".
Now you say "I recorded that with BeMeBlackBox".

All Motorola users (Cliq, Droid, etc...): The Motorola phones have a certain difference that makes them crash with specific video functions, thus making them incompatible with BeMeBlackBox. This behavior can NOT be reproduced in the emulator.
Since the Android Motorola phones are not available in Canada, I will not be able to work around that problem as I do not have any access to the hardware. Hopefully in the near future. My deepest apologies.

List of devices errors, DeviceMonitor]Failed

Found this problem while developing BeMeVoiceChanger. The Eclipse IDE says peiodically DeviceMonitor]Failed, and adb says in List of devices that the device if offline intermittently. After reinstalling all development components again (adb, ddms, sdk...), the problem was found: Not enough power in the USB plug. Reconnecting the cable into the back plug instead of front solved the problem.

Why is it important to support landscape mode in Android apps?

Looking for answers on that one. The assumption is that for basic apps like calculators users will prefer to hold the Android in portrait mode. Or not?

BeMeCollective apps now available for the Google Android

BeMeMorse and BeMeWeightPoints have been re-written for the Android Google Operating System. They have been uploaded as free apps to test the Android Market. The next "Heavy " apps will be following if this succeeds.
The OS itself is very cooperative. After dealing with previous OS's and having to suffer through muddy APIs it is a big relief to finally code against a smart OS which actually uses the best of the previous generations' technologies. We believe a bright future is ahead for this OS.
