    dude, seriously.. this app is outstanding, and you deserve a big high five for this. especially your interaction with the users and making requested changes.

    Now, if you can make it come with a monkey that can carry my swag? I'll buy you a mail order bride.. :D

    Running on Droid X 2.1-update1

    This exact issue +1

    Also is there a way that people can donate a couple of buck to ya? You really deserve it.

    Still looking into this issue. Also, thanks! If there are enough people that want to donate then maybe I'll put a donate button in the app. That would be nice for tuition and textbook, that stuff's not cheap and anything helps :P.

    I'll donate!

    Lol, I've never had anyone begging to give me money before. I'll make sure there is donate button in the final version. I really do appreciate you guys wanting to donate.


    edit: Sidenote! Move to SD card is in the next update.
    edit2: Sidenote x2! Lackey was nice enough to let me link his master tabletop grid in the app, so a button for that is also coming! (found here)

    in the version you moved the logo to the background, it says "Update 0.1.n" instead of 0.1.1 or at least I'm guessing it was supposed to be 0.1.1

    I just noticed something. I have a G1 and do not have the multi-touch so I can not zoom in on the maps for the Expo Hall 1 & 2. What happened to the - / + to zoom in? Can you bring that back? It would be much appreciated.

    Bendery It Like Beckham thank you very much for the tip. I had a feeling I was missing something since I could move the maps around just did not "hold" the map long enough.

    Thanks for pointing that out. One of the reasons I didn't want to do multi-touch was because I knew not all of the versions would support it. I was lucky enough to find some open source code with a very nice implementation of single touch, and I just modified it to fit my needs. The only issue is that for people on 1.5, I had to make the scrolling less smooth than for people >1.5 (it's kind of like the scrolling used to be when there were buttons).

    Maybe add a note in the program somewhere that explains how to do the zooming?

    Yeah, that might be a good idea. I forgot which version I put it in, but I added an annoying little message that says something like "Touch & hold, then drag to zoom" every time a map is opened. I'll figure some other place to put instructions too.

    It's working on my Droid 1 with FROYO 2.2 on it. I'll have to try it out once I get the latest Froyo update.

    Here's a thought, how about we do a PAX assistant android meetup sometime during the con? That way we can all meet nickswar and thank him in person for his time in creating this, and discuss how we can further help out in creating a program that will be helpful for years to come at both Prime and East Conventions. Thoughts?

    That sounds like a great idea! Unfortunately my time at PAX will only be limited to Saturday, and I still need to run around and see everything (I know! I create this cool app and I only get to use it for one day D:). However, I was thinking about going to the convention center real early and waiting near the front of the line. I might hold a sign or wear a shirt saying something like "Check out my awesome Android app PAX Assistant 2010!". If you end up finding me then don't hesitate to come over and say hi!


    Also, side note! Update 0.1.2 is now on the market. Both move to SD card and Lackey's master tabletop grid are now available.

    I don't mean to start a holy war, but looking at the iPhone app and the fact that the developer can't even guarantee it'll be out before PAX itself, I just have to laugh. We've gone through, what? 7 versions in a couple weeks. This is exactly why I love Android.

    Yeah, I agree. No hate towards Apple, but as a developer the unrestricted market Android has is much more appealing.

    With the way I implemented twitter, that would be kind of hard. If there are enough people that want clickable tweets, then I can figure something out. The only thing is that I can't really guarantee twitter will even work during PAX due to any wifi/3g issues.

    Not too worried about it. I don't like twitter much anyway.

    I <3 you Nick and this app. I found it on the marketplace about a week ago. I'm definitely digging it, incredibly useful.

    I really need to finish learning to develop for Android now that I have an Incredible.

    Also this, its probably to late for me to offer to help with any coding on this project, but this is definitely something I'd pay for, and this is coming from someone who is generally anti-paying for apps.

    I think that might be a market thing. I've had that happen before and when I try again later it works.

    Thanks, that means a lot to me! Also, if you want to get started with Android programming, this is a great book. It's the one I started with and helped me learn about the SDK before I even had an Android phone.

    Ah, glad to see this app maturing so well. the only thing I would hope to see is multitouch zooming. I know you already had a method for single touch but if it was a setting, you could have it set default to disabled and people who have multitouch capable screens could flip it on.

    How would I do this? Remove the battery for a prolonged period of time? Because I removed the battery and didn't turn it back on until I fixed my mother's flat tire and the problem was still there.

    I was thinking turning it off by holding the power button and choosing power off (How to do this could depend on the phone) then waiting a bit and turning it back on. Removing the battery works too.

    This same thing happened to me on update. Persisted after reboot. I really wanted the new version, so I uninstalled it, assuming this would clear the issue - no such luck! Now I've gone from pretty good version to no version :(

    I don't think it's anything to do with the app though, far more likely that it's a market issue. Still, though. :(

    EDIT: Same thing is happening on the Official Twitter client (minus the uninstall, not falling for that again), so I'm sure it's a Market thing.

    You can always find a host for the APK file, enable installing from sources other than the market, and download it via browser
