Time flies. It’s already a week from last alpha 2 release of TwimGo. During the last week I’ve been crafting few improvements to my Qt Web Runtime based Twitter client.
This version includes few of the most requested features:
TwitPic and yFrog thumbnail preview
I also recorded a small video of the current features in TwimGo:
You can download the app from the new app site that I just created :)
Again, remember that current Qt WRT can’t update existing installation so uninstall the previous version of TwimGo first.
When I released the first alpha version of TwimGo one week ago for Nokia N900 I didn’t expect to receive that much (positive) feedback. There clearly is a need for one more Twitter client :)
During the week I received good ideas on GetSatisfaction page so that I could take TwimGo even further and now that I have crafted some more code in the last few nights I present to you: TwimGo Alpha rev 2
New features include:
Old skool retweets (with commenting)
New timeline menu
“More” button, sorry no auto-loading yet…
You should uninstall the app from your N900 before installing new version. At least on my device the Qt Web Runtime didn’t update the app correctly unless I uninstalled it before reinstalling the new version.
Here is a first downloadable alpha release of TwimGo 2.0 for Nokia N900. There were rather positive feedback for the teaser shots so I thought that it’d be best to release this as early as possible to get more feedback for the next releases.
I haven’t used cash that much for years. That makes it a bit more difficult to keep track of my expenses and current balance. This is why I created this small app to my Nokia N900, MoneyFlow. With this app user can add new expenses on the go easily and adjust the current balance when needed. As a small bonus you can also check from pie chart where your money is flowing based on your entries.
App is a W3C Widget which requires a Qt Web Runtime (QRT) on Nokia N900. Hopefully that is shipped with MeeGo devices so you wouldn’t need to worry about that in the future.
Some credit goes to 3rd parties: I used JSChart for creating that nice pie chart. Nice looking icons are mostly from WeFunction icon collection.
And what’s best is that the app is free and you can already download it from here: MoneyFlow.wgt
Now that Qt people from Nokia released a preview of the Qt Web Runtime for N900 I was able to create a new simple task manager tool for my new phone in matter of hours. I like both KISS princible and GTD organizational method so I made the app as simple as possible: There are only four “folders” for tasks – Next, Someday, Archive and Shop. I tend to store my active tasks on the Next folder. Tasks that doesn’t have high priority go into Someday folder. Old tasks or tasks that are low priority go into Archive. Just because I used the Mobile Task Manager as a shopping list too I made a separate folder for listing the groceries.
On the technical side I was now able to use HTML5 client-side storage to persist the tasks. I wrote another blog post on that subject just to show how easy it is.
UI was easy to do and now I also took advantage of both portrait and landscape view modes. In landscape mode the toolbar is on the right side of the screen so that there are as much vertical space as possible for the tasks and in the portrait mode the toolbar is in the bottom so it is pretty easy to use with one hand for example when collecting items from shopping list.
