My name is Stephen and currently an IT Professional doing administration and support, however I've always had a deep passion for software development. I've started mobile application development when I got my first Android phone in October 09. This blog catalogues all my progress with creating mobile apps for not only Android, but eventually iPhone, Blackberry and Windows Phone 7. Hope you enjoy.


Floating Widget updates

Tagged: , ,

Version 2 for Floating Widget was released a few days ago and showed off its new UI.  No more boring gray buttons and purple backdrop.  I tried to follow the ICS Design Guidelines as much as I could and Floating Widget now has a new interface with colorful buttons and swipeable tabs.  Not to mention the ability to save 5 different widget profiles.

Even though I just posted about v2, the next update is right around the corner.  I recently added the ability to resize the widgets!  I'm going to continue testing it myself as well as my 2 beta testers, then plan to release it 5/29 if all goes right. So stay tuned!

v4s todo list is just multiple widgets at once.  But there maybe some minor improvements and updates before I get there.  One option I would like to add is the ability to make custom shortcuts that launch a certain profile automatically.  Any changes to how the widget "floats" is what qualifies a new version number.  The shortcuts update will most likely be dubbed v3.1.
