Well, there are already a couple of applications out there already, but i was playing with the SDK and just trying some stuff out in visual studio so i thought, why dont i just release it?

Its a first release, it does work, has some basic calibration and im trying to make a bit more visually appealing that just some bars

So,

version 0.2:

- Updated graphics of the "Circle" compass/meter. Now actually looks like a compass thingy :P
- Added the ability to actually save the calibration data, and to let you know its doing something and its done.
- Created an CAB Installer to install the addon.
- Made all pictures internal resources.


version 0.1:

shows an Water level for the X and Y Axis, an circle "meter" and an light meter. There arent any big bugs that i know off, but i didnt implement the "maximal" meter bars yet. That means the measure bars can go a bit beyond the container :P

Requirements:

You do need the Compact framework 2.0, it will (unfortunatly) not work without it! But seeing as everyone already has the lightsaber application i guess its not that much of an issue

Other:

If anyone has some suggestions or comments (bad or good..) just let me know..

Source:

I added the source code if anyone is interested. Its not some good code, and the calibration could be alot more detailed, but perhaps it helps someone :P


Oh, and if anyone reflects the application and starts to rant about how my code sucks, i didnt optimize it or plan ahead, i just started to code some :P

1. congrats and keep the good work! it is refreshing to see a newbie that brings something to the forum and don't start with a wining post.
2. i really hope you'll receive only positive feed back (not so common here ) and allow me to be the first one to say: no, i don't think yr code sucks
3. is the calibration function working?
4. can you explain what "lumens" are doing here. lumens is an international measure unit for light. are u trying to use the internal light sensor to measure the light? this could be a good idea and i'll be very interested.

Awesome app, calibration works perfectly and saves the setting ok and that light sensor is a nice addon.

Would love to see this made into a .cab installation and perhaps make this app work with the AppToDate program for easy updates.

Look forward to future updates

This is going in my favourite apps

No, it measures the amount of light the light sensor receives. I will eventually add an cab installer, but seeing as its still in the "works" i am not bothering with it yet :P

The calibration works, its not as awesome as the BubbleLevel one yet. When you press the button let the diamond lay there for 3 seconds, and then it calibrates. I wont update the backlight.


The light sensor only shows the value, it doesnt update the backlight it self. I tried doing that, but i can only turn the backlight on very bright, very dim and off. Not somewhere in between

Calibration
Nice app! I like the light sensor also, i finally found out where the light sensor really is

It calibrates fine but does it actually saves it somewhere? the moment i close the app and start Teeter, still not calibrated.

So far non of the apps around here were able (for me) to save the calibration. Some people mentioned success though and since I have tried by now all available roms and on none the calibration works, i get this idea that there are several versions of the sensor (hardware) around...

Anyhow, good to see a new app like this and success with it!

No, the calibration it not saved yet, i will add that soon. The problem with the calibration data is that its reset on reboot. The only tool that i know of comes from a different telephone (Raphael or something) and does save the calibration. But not all roms work with this.

So the calibration from almost all applications will only work on the application itself

Wow, thats the best waterlevel prog here around! Nice graphics, but still very simple. And the lights measurment is very nice too!

Very good work! Thanks!
