Having published a first Android application Audio Clock in the Android Market my attention has turned to developing something new. Audio Clock was simple but this new application is on a whole other scale.
Audio Clock had a minimal UI – in fact just some configuration views and a notification bar entry – and ran in the background, waking every 15 minutes to chime. It has no web component, no remote connections. In other words it was kept almost as simple as it was possible to be whilst till providing some useful purpose.
The current application, which I should be able to start testing in the wild with some willing victims within a week is completely different. It will have a relatively complex UI. It will use more hardware features. It will require an internet connection and I will have to write a server component.
