DigitalCar for Android

Digital Car for Android out for testing...

To become part of the testing group you will need to do the following;

1. Go to the google community group CLICK HERE
2 Join the group.
3. Click to download the alpha version (top right)

You will now get updates as I release them :)

WATCH THE BELOW VIDEO SO YOU KNOW HOW TO USE IT...

New in this version (Alpha 1.02)
Moved releases over to the Play store
Fixed 'out of memory' start error


New in this version (Alpha 0.21)
Fixed AudioManager when moving between external players (Pandora / Spotify / Tunein etc..)
Improved icon launcher, now preloads icons in to an array
few other bits..

version (Alpha 0.2)
Added 8 preset app buttons
Added App Launcher
Added Background chooser
Added Power awareness
Added Other media awareness, pauses for navigation / Tunein etc..
Added lots more.. (apols, can't remember everything)

Power awareness -
1st set your device to sleep to 15 seconds - go to settings, display, sleep = 15 sec'd
plug in your device and start Digital Car for Android up
When you unplug it, it will pause and then let it self go to within 15 seconds
Plug it back in and it will start playing

Background -
To set you own image as a background, goto your internal storage device and you will see a folder called DigitalCar/Backgrounds. Just store them in there and next time you start DC up it will have them included. Please keep the images around 100k so not to cause a bitmap loading error.

I still need to do lots more, mainly in the settings.

Have fun...... and please give me some feedback :)

I'll look into it and let you know...

Apologies, I'll sort it for the next release which will be in a couple of hours, just finishing off a logo option for the middle.

Made a bit of progress tonight You can now select mph or kph and choose a logo. All the logo's are in a folder you can add your own to if you wish.

Fixed some errors and improved lots of things (I hope).



Hopefully get something up soon....
