Digital Car for Android Alpha 0.2 OUT NOW
Grab it from HERE
WATCH THE BELOW VIDEO SO YOU KNOW HOW TO USE IT...
New in this version (Alpha 0.2)
Added 8 preset app buttons
Added App Launcher
Added Background chooser
Added Power awareness
Added Other media awareness, pauses for navigation / Tunein etc..
Added lots more.. (apols, can't remember everything)
Power awareness -
1st set your device to sleep to 15 seconds - go to settings, display, sleep = 15 sec'd
plug in your device and start Digital Car for Android up
When you unplug it, it will pause and then let it self go to within 15 seconds
Plug it back in and it will start playing
To set you own image as a background, goto your internal storage device and you will see a folder called DigitalCar/Backgrounds. Just store them in there and next time you start DC up it will have them included. Please keep the images around 100k so not to cause a bitmap loading error.
I still need to do lots more, mainly in the settings.
Well, here is my first alpha release of Digital Car for Android...
On the media screen you have 3 buttons (i,ii,iii) these remember folder locations. To SET the location, navigate to where you want and press and HOLD the button for 2 sec's.
I've tested it on my Samsung Tab 8 and it seems to work fine. This is an 8 inch tablet with built in GPS.
Please post comments / screen results etc. The more info you can supply the better.. ie tablet name / gps enabled etc..
Grab it from http://www.cdrskull.co.uk/DigitalCar.zip
Download it, unzip it and copy it over to your tablet. It will say it's from an untrusted source, but this is because it's not signed. (for testing)
Have fun :-)

Well... I've decided to dust off the coding gloves again and have a go at coding for an Android tablet. I've only been at it for about 3 weeks, and it's a very steep learning curve from VB.net and flash..
anyway, I've got a couple of screens half done and it seems to be working well. slow but sure, anyway.. I'll try and keep you updated.
