Update: Maemo and Symbian binaries are now also available for download!
Few months have passed since the last releases. We are starting to build a house so that project will take some of my spare time every now and then.
During the last few days I have coded TwimGo v3.0.9 which includes something new: Read it Later support, which makes it easy to store interesting links so that you can read them later for example with another device. It works like this:
Open tweet which includes interesting link
Click “Read it Later…”
Read it Later opens in browser and you can add tags if you want
There are also few other fixes and improvements in TwimGo 3.0.9:
Read it Later support – You can now easily add interesting links to your Read it Later list so you can read them on better time with your computer or tablet
Translations – There are now few translation like Turkey, Finnish, Italian and Swedish
Slightly larger profile picture in profile view – Requested in issue #46
Loading indicator is now using platform style busy indicator from Qt Quick Components
Coded a minor update to TwimGo this weekend. Release notes for v3.0.6:
Pull down timeline to refresh
Scroll to bottom to automatically load more tweets

It was pretty easy to add the auto “load more” functionality as both GridView (used in landscape mode) and ListView (portait mode) have a property atYEnd to check if user have scrolled to bottom of the timeline. I added a simple Timer that checks this property in every 0,5 seconds and starts to load more tweets if necessary.
Pull down to refresh was a bit trickier but I ended up checking the atYBeginning property of ListView/Gridview and deterimine the extra pull with the contentY property. So the code is something like this:
I like to get things done. Sometimes there are just too many things in your “inbox” so you’ll better write them down. If you follow something like Getting Things Done (GTD) method your to-do tool should support categories or hierarchies.
I’ve written few GTD apps before like Mobile Task Manager (Java ME) and TaskFlow (Widget) and now that I received my lovely Nokia N950 I had to make an app for that too and obvious technology was Qt Quick as that also gets things done :)
So, here is the first alpha version of the to-do / GTD app called MeeToDo. It currently has minimal set of features: Lists and tasks. User can add new tasks pretty fast and can mark them done with a single tap. There is also a “purge” features which I find handy e.g. doing grocery shopping.
I tried to follow the analog user interface of the best GTD tool, paper and pen. Main view shows user a page from notebook with list of task lists. When list is selected it jumps on the right hand page. When single task is selected or added it animates a page flip and shows a task page.
I compiled it to Symbian^3, Maemo (Nokia N900) and MeeGo Harmattan (Nokia N950 and N9). Please test it out and let me know what you think of it?

What do you think? What features would you like to see in Foursquare app?
