Currently, immediate access to commonly used apps on Android is not so immediate, so I’m working on a gesture-based lock screen. Easily-memorized gestures help users rapidly select a number of applications directly from the moment they wake their phone. It’s currently in a prototype form only, with development on Github.
I created a bot that tweets mashups of quotes from Nuclear Throne. It has over 450 followers (more than I do; I’m not sure how that makes me feel). You can follow the bot on twitter or read about the creation process.
I wanted to work on my Windows programming and C++, so I turned my Python Ambihue program into a more fully feautured GUI app, with persistent settings and a taskbar icon and everything. Digging into win32 APIs for screengrabs hurt my brain, though. The project is on Github.
I used Splitwise at work to make bill paying easier at lunch, but with large groups it could get complicated to tell who owed the most. I wrote an app that would take your Splitwise login via OAuth, get your list of friends, and would tell you who owed the most out of those at lunch. Developed a prototype, with code available on Github.
