At one point I wanted to build a bunch of open-source android apps to fill in gaps in functionality between stock android roms and what I got out of my Palm Pilot back in the day. This never came to fruition because I didn't have a portable windows instance I could use to do development on, and I struggled to get the android SDK to run anywhere useful to me (see e.g. Android SDK on FreeBSD). Ultimately I managed to piece together a decent solution with a bunch of off-the-shelf open source apps until finally, in Oct of 2020, my Blackberry Priv broke on me and I made the leap to iPhone. What the iPhone lacks in customization -- especially things like notification tones -- it makes up for in the fact that I needed no third-party apps to access any of my sync'd PIM data. Calendar, To-do, Contacts, and e-Mail all worked right out of the box.
Thus this page is now all historical artifact of what I had hoped to do with Android but never accomplished.
- Calendar Application
- Screen Lock widget (note: supposedly apps cannot sleep/lock the phone.)
- More coming...
All of my Android Apps will be open source. I am currently debating whether to use BSD, GPL, or a combination, or something entirely different. Public git repos are listed here.
