About the application :

Android CarMeant is now in a very stable state, all the features I planned are working fine.
Some new features are going to be added but I want to share and test the app first.


The settings interface should be working on all Android from 2.2 up to 4.4 and higher.
If there is something weird, please make screenshots and report your impressions.

I developed the CarMeant service as compatible as I could,
but it is possible that some features will not work with your phone.

If any force-close happen, please follow my crash manager and send me the report email.

Excellent, I've been wanting this exact thing for ages!

A couple things I've noted (haven't tried the app yet):
- The website it's hosted on is marked as "high risk" by Sophos (can't even view the pics in this thread!)
- The fonts - the icon font could use an update (looks 90s! )
- Comic Sans font on your website....

I've been using tasker to do all this, hopefully it can replace that!

Thanks ^^.

Apparently the Sophos issue appeared two days ago,
it's the only service declaring the domain as threat,
looks like they had an issue considering Google Analytics as dangerous.
I'm looking into it since yesterday and I'm contacting them for a correction.

As for the font, it was a joke with a group of developers and friends
and remained that way over the last 5 years ^^.
Was planning on changing it one day,
may be sooner than later xD.

Sophos issue has just been resolved apparently, they updated their database with my report.

Just released a small update with the full french translation, a delay selection for the music playing
and various improvements in the Bluetooth Devices management.

Other features are planned to come soon.

Bye .

Cheers, I will take this for a spin!

EDIT just taken a look at it.
- Could you add an intro screen to tell users what the purpose of the app is/or what it can achieve? Eg I don't really know what it can do for me (sorry!)
- I don't think "functionnalities " is a real word!

Hi !

I just released an update with CarMeant compiled using Android Studio,
everything is working fine, and I also improved one thing on CarMeant+ Bluetooth management.





fred65 : Sorry, didn't see your post before, that's weird.
First point : It's detailed on CarMeant page and in the PlayStore, I think it's clear enough,
and playing with it gives directly the idea of what it can do.
Second : Was changed earlier before.

There is one app I've seen today on XDA.
Maybe you could find something useful in it - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2714197
