Weather support for AusSnowCam

Weather support for AusSnowCam

Jul 31

Today I released a new version of AusSnowCam with weather support. The data is currently being derived from BOM’s weather observations.

The phone version of the app displays the information via a popup message. Tablet version will make use of the space under the cam selection list.

Check it out if you haven’t already!

How to connect to ADB via WiFi

How to connect to ADB via WiFi

Jul 31

Today I was hacking away at some updates to some of my apps – after accumulating several devices over the last few months, testing my app looks a little something like this

Picture got photobombed by actual Androids (how awesome is my makeshift non-keyboard shoebox stand?)

I was always under the impression that to establish ADB you needed a USB cable – turns out that’s not true.

If you have a rooted device – simply installing something like ADB over WiFi enables you to connect to your device from your PC

I’m now no longer running low on USB slots.

End of a challenge

End of a challenge

I challenged myself to start continuously blogging again – but I realize I forgot to set an end date.

Recently watched a TED talk by Matt Cutts on trying something new every 30 days.

I’ve nearly been continously blogging for 30 days, so I think I’ll set myself up for another challenge next month.
And of course… blog about it! (duh, that’s a given)

socialflux reborn

socialflux reborn

Jul 23

Finally got around to rebuilding socialflux. It was a project I started a few months ago after I found a really cool theme and thought “What could I do with it?”

Since then, I developed a site which lists social events happening in Melbourne. Providing an alternative to finding events via newsletters, meetup.com, twitter, etc.

After using the site for a few weeks and further building on the idea of sharing social events – I soon noticed the theme wasn’t working out.
The idea socialflux was trying to achieve felt hindered by the very theme which started the idea – therefore it was evident to keep the site going, I had to redevelop it somehow.
(not to mention the site had become a ghost town with zero hits over the last 2 months)

I realized this a month or two back, but never got around to doing anything to fix the problem – finally, after playing with some new plugins, I’ve rebuilt socialflux to take on a completely fresher spin.

Would love to hear your thoughts on the new socialflux.

I can’t believe it’s already been 2 weeks since I got my Google+ invite.
I’m already starting to feel like life without G+ would leave a slight social void in my life.

For today’s blog, I thought I would share some observations based on my experiences with Google+

Note: If you are not on G+ yet – drop me a message/comment/DM and I’ll send you an invite.
