Entwicklung für webOS

The new version Moon Info HD especially for HP TouchPad is available in the AppCatalog: http://developer.palm.com/appredirect/?packageid=de.roboter-teile.moon-hd and provides all the functions of the Moon Info Pro with a new layout made for the TouchPad.

The development of Moon Info Pro goes on, the next update will contain a calendar integration for the most important data.

As of now a new WebOS App Morse Generator is available in the Palm AppCatalog for free.

The App was written as fun App rather for the Palm PDK-HotApps-Contest.
Because of some delays during development and a long time for review by Palm the App is released just today.

The Morse Code Generator converts the entered text into the nostalgic morse sound from the history of radio communication. Still today the morse code is used in amateur radio and automated radio beacons.
Provided are the letters A-Z, the digits 0-9 and the special characters .,+@=()?-/#
With the Sym-Key you can generate the emergency call SOS conforming to standards.
You can hear the sound over the loudspeaker of the WebOS device, the speed is adjustable in 3 steps from 5WPM to 20WPM.

A new introductory video of Moon Info Pro is on youtube:

There is a new release of Moon Info Pro available in the AppCatalog: http://developer.palm.com/appredirect/?packageid=de.roboter-teile.moon-pro

Now you can export the most important data to your calendar.

A new version of Moon Info Pro is available at http://developer.palm.com/appredirect/?packageid=de.roboter-teile.moon-pro-beta for the WebOS devices Palm Pre or Pixi. You can download and try it out for free. The programm is currently still in beta, that means there can be small flaws or incomplete descriptions etc..
If you discover an issue or if you have ideas or wishes for the further development, please send a mail or write a comment here or an instant message with the weblog system.

The greatest step forward in the new version is the integration of the export of Data to the WebOS Calendar. That means you can export the whole lunar cycle or details like moon rise, moon set , blue hour etc. for every day to the calendar of your mobile device. Also you can export the next ”Void of Course”- Data to the calendar.

On the detail pages with the calendar export function there is a calendar symbol at the bottom between the navigation buttons, one click and the data will added to the calendar. If the entry is already in the calendar, there is no problem, it will be overwritten.
To export the whole lunar cycle to the calendar use the menu item. Than the entries for 2x New Moon, First- and Last quarter, and Full Moon will be generated.

The current beta version will expire at 27. August 2010 11:59 PM.
