Thought I would contribute to all the apps for the HTC Diamond. This is a Lottery Number Generator program. It works by shaking the phone. Nice graphical UI.

Full QVGA, VGA, WVGA and WQVGA support

HOW TO USE

Shake the phone to generate numbers.

If you want to select some manual numbers or scroll to something, click the button under the wheel.

Click the lock button to lock all numbers in place (prevent accidental shakes)

To Exit the program press Middle button on the NAV pad or the X in the right corner.

Settings:

Choose Number of wheels to show (1 - 6 NOT including the red one)
Set the Max Number for each wheel
Red Wheel can be enabled or disabled
Red Wheel can be set to be unique from the other numbers, or any number
Adjust the shake sensitivity - 5 Being the most Sensitive and 15 Being the least

All comments are welcome, this is my first official working piece of software.

Enjoy

UPDATE: VERSION 2 IS OUT :)

The updated version has a customization screen, so you can adjust just about every setting. Try it out and let me know how it goes. Good Luck !

REMOVED Most of the Update History, if you want it, it's in the History.txt

UPDATE: VERSION 2.8
Some updates for WQVGA
Added some sounds
Added a manual spin button

TODO:
Add favorites for multiple lottery

Keep the comments coming, always glad to hear feedback :)


If you really like my app(s) or win big, feel free to share :)

P.S. As I have time I will add more lottery games


I don't know why but it works only if I move the directory in Internal Memory.

Anyway funny app!

Ah, in italy the numbers of lottery are 90! :p


Thank you.

Hi:
Seems like a great, and fun idea, I installed it to internal memory, it installed fine. But after install, I shake, and shake and nothing. I did make sure it is not locked, but still the wheels don't change.

Also, would you consider adding a 7th digit for Powerball?

Thanks!

Although I can get it to work its EXTREMELY hard and random I must shake it like a madman and it hurts I'm afraid I might throw it and break the tv or something lol... I second the 7th number thanks awesome app

i will add the option to change the sensitivity of the shake, i tested it on the diamond, not sure if there are any significant differences. i will add the 7th wheel as soon as i have time, it will be optional under settings.

I chose Internal Memory, but the program was automatically installed in the phone memory.
...Then same problem of "cincy1020" (post #8)

After moving the directory of the app to Int Mem all works fine.

Nice job, thanks very much. How about the option to set the number range, in the UK balls are 1 to 49. Looking forward to winning.:)

great app - but couple of issues.

Am running on a touch hd and even with sensitivity at 15 (max) it takes a lot to shake and get numbers generated.

Secondly there have been multiple instances when I have generated the same numbers in more than one reel - this isnt acceptable when playing the uk lottery for example. Can something be done so that no same number is generated more than once...

hi hermanm. Cool app, i'm trying it on my HD. Just a couple of notes :)
- i know it's designed for Diamond, but works well also on HD (480x800): would be possible to have it full screen?
- on HD we have no nav pad, so there's no way to quit. Would be possible to have an "exit" button or an "exit area" somewhere on the screen?
- i think sensitivity setting is not so intuitive: low sensitivity rate (at least on my HD) means higher g-sensitivity, and vice-versa. With sensitivity @15 i shake without results, with sensitivity @6 the wheel runs :)

cheers

oops, sorry, actually that's the way i had it as far as sensitivity goes, lower number = more sensitive. i guess i should change that the other way around. as far as full screen for hd i will see what i can do, also will add an exit button. thanks for the feedback.
