Hey guys!

I developed TalkMyPhone, an open-source app that enables you to control your phone from google talk. It's like android-notifier on steroids, since it brings almost the same features and you don't need wifi/bluetooth enabled.

I can't post links since I'm new here. Google for talkmyphone or look for it on the market.

Developers: I'm open to contributions
Users: please use the issue tracker for suggesting features

I don't have many non-french users since the info did not spread very well outside of french blogs, so I'm posting it here. I hope someone will find it useful and write something about it.

Do you need multiple GTalk accounts in order to talk to it, or can you "talk to yourself" ?

The 2 solutions work. Talking to yourself is possible in gmail, but you cannot initiate the conversation, so in this case, best is to use a third party client like pidgin. Otherwise you can set up a second account. Any standard jabber account is possible.

Accounts delivered at jabber.org are *very* easy to get. You don't need to give your email address, you don't need to sign an agreement. You just have to fill a captcha to prove you're human.

Weird. Some unlucky people experiment bugs like this one. I don't know where this comes from, and I try to improve the code. It works 100% of the time for me, so all I can do is look at 'adb logcat' traces users leave on the bugtracker. If you wish to do so, it might improve your chances to see this fixed

giving it a shot

you may try changing your preferences.xml to the attached (just because of english, just change .zip to .xml)

i have to find the other file, because i noticed some other grammatical things. no worries tho

and, 'additional settings', in the xml has too many 'n's, lol
Attached Files
File Type: zip preferences.zip - [Click for QR Code] (4.1 KB, 23 views)

Pretty Neat
I was able to go on Google Talk on my PC and send messages to my phone. The copy:text feature I can definitely see myself using so that I don't have to type long URLs in the browser. The other functions seem like they would be nice if you lost your phone or if it was stolen. Overall a pretty neat app! Thanks!

So I have the app running and logged in. (Phone is logged into Paul@gmail.com)

On my PC I have John@gmail.com. I message from PC to phone (John to Paul) and nothing happens.

I tried "where" "ring" etc, but the app doesn't respond. What am I doing wrong?
