This (linky linky) is pretty cool. It should be more functional than the current round of watches out there since it’s built to do more than tell time and has a dev kit in the works for people like me. I’ll be sure to keep track of my thoughts here, so stay tuned!
I may have some very exciting news in the coming weeks involving Softball Stats Pro, stay tuned!
A friend of mine pointed out ESPN is allowing access to their vault of data information, so I’m hoping to get a stats app going that will have access to a collection of stats of NFL players. Much like the comprehensive stats breakdown in Softball Stats Pro, I want to create an app to answer random stats questions.
Without a “premium” key I’ll be limited to just headlines at first, but this should allow me time to build a proper looking app taking into account the improvements added into AndroidOS 4.0+ (Ice Cream Sandwich).
I’d love to build an iOS app as well, but limits on my budget make that unlikely. For now, expect an AndroidOS app that can easily be ported to BlackBerry Playbooks.
The latest version is up! 1.5.0 features a completely redesigned view and navigation which should help users fully utilize this fully operational battlestati… err… stats app. The update is live so you should get a notification in at most 24 hours!
As always feedback is appreciated via email or Twitter.
New app idea: constant service that grabs the IP address, host name, and global IP every 5 minutes (maybe more, maybe less, maybe just on change). This would output to a file stored on the SD card. I considered outputting it to a list in the app, but it would probably just read the output file.
The idea is I’m curious as to how often my phone renews the IP address with the cell network and how it changes over time. I don’t imagine a lot of usefulness of this app to the world, but it would quell my curiosity.
I know I’ve been ignoring you, my dearest fans, but it’s only because I love you. I’ve actually had classes to go to (wasn’t dropped this semester!) and haven’t been keeping up with app maintenance. Two apps (Smoke or Fire and AutoTagger) have been removed from the Market simply because they were clogging up the place, and the other two (Softball Stats and Pro) I haven’t had time to work on. I had a small brain-fart when I first made Pro and I’ve recently corrected it so expect an update pushed to the Market within the next few days.
Other than that, expect not a lot in the near future as I focus on building a website/blog for a our highly touted Head of App Concept and Design, @evanstruth.
[UPDATE March 5, 2012: With the release of v1.5+ the app does look different than this tutorial, but the general ideas are the same. I'll work on getting an updated version up, but in the meantime follow along as best you can and remember I'm always available via email if you have any questions.]
Lately I’ve gotten some questions on how to use Softball Stats Pro, so here’s a write-up with pictures for all those that need help. (In the meantime, I need to get the UI to work more clearly…)
5. On the “Season Viewer” screen use the Menu button to again add players, then add games to this season. The date is the default name for each game, but if you want something else enter it in the text field being sure to avoid anything other than letters or numbers.
Long Pressing on a plate appearance will “score the runner” awarding them a run. Short pressing on a plate appearance that is already entered opens an edit menu to edit the plate appearance.
