    ACUI: Full featured frontend for Android

    Hi,
    We worked on this project for months and since we're almost ready to launch the first beta on the PlayStore I think that it's time to share some info around the web and not only on our community.
    ACUI is a set of four apps: ACUI Key&Touch, ACUI Touch (and ACUI Touch with material) and ACUI Base (which include three different themes), designed to best improve your Android experience in your car.



    ACUI Material Video
    ACUI Touch Video
    ACUI Base Video

    Together with these UI app we will release also two very simple and easy apps that will allow you to share your GPS connection from your phone to another android device.


    But ACUI is not just software. We will open a preorder sale on IndieGoGo for a couple of piece of hardware we're working on:
    - a bluetooth HID controller for standard 4-Wire resistive touchscreen (price around 80$)
    - a custom controller (price around 50$)
    Every single $ for both the IndieGoGo campaign and the PlayStore sales will be used to produce and keep as low as possible the price of these two product, as we previously said on our Google+ Community we really want to provide you the best experience for the lowest price (if possible).

    GOOGLE PLAYSTORE LINK

    Here's the links to our site and to our Google+ Community

    www.acuiautomotive.com
    http://plus.google.com/communities/1...17837785037612


    We have a list for people who are interested in a full list of feature available now for the first release of ACUI. Note that our A2DP feature will be available as soon as possible (the base code is almost ready).

    - Full AppDrawer

    - Six shortcut for third party app in the main screen (this feature is not available in ACUI Key&Touch)

    - Send eMail
    - Send SMS
    - Read Inbox SMS
    - Read Sent SMS
    - Make a Call
    - Check last outgoing call
    - Check last received call

    - Music player
    - Control and get info from GooglePlayMusic
    - Play Video (will open an external app**)

    - Lap timer
    - 0-100Km/h (0-60MPH)

    - Toggle Bluetooth

    Looks really good. Are you by an chance working on a portrait mode? That would be perfect. Cause some people have bigger than 7" tablets in their vehicle and its mounted in portrait/vertical mode.

    We will work on a portrait version (which will have the same feature of all the other version of ACUI) as soon as we will complete a couple of things we have in our roadmap.
    I will record a video showing ACUI running on phone asap

    ACUI is designed to work with Android 4.0.4+ and we released it for the lowest price in the entire PlayStore 2.5 for full featured version (Key&Touch, Material, Touch) and just 1 for ACUI Base.

    Just a little news.
    We're almost finished to work on our A2DP feature and on A2DP special hardware for ACUI which will allow you to both listen to the music and answer call directly from your tablet!!

    The price will be 2,50 like for every other version of ACUI as you can see here on the PlayStore.

    Sounds great. Does your app handle local music and videos? Also what about internet radio? When u do finally get the portrait mode up let me know so I can buy it.
