I’ve finally finished my preliminary work on the unofficial Triple J Now playing Android App and I’ve released version 1.1 to the Android Marketplace. Initially I planned on making a widget but I decided to cut my teeth on something a little easier. You can read more on the Android app here. I’ve got a little more to go in the field of debugging and error handling but for now it’s functional to a level that I’m satisfied.
It’s been a great insight into the field of Android development (and a good refresher for my Java programming skills!). I don’t expect it will be long before Triple J release their official app for Android so it may be obsoleted quite quickly. Even then, if the iPhone app is anything to go by, their app is far more complex than anything that I need. All I ever wanted was to quickly know what song was playing and to mark it so that I could look it up at a later date.
To that end – I’m happy
