Jul 16 2011 android nethack

Bringing Android to the Mazes of Menace

Android logo If you have an Android device, make sure to download the 'Nethack Encyclopedia', my first Android app which I released last weekend. I've only just recently have been getting into Nethack myself, but have been having a blast. I wanted a way to lookup spoilers information when I don't have an internet connection (being from Upstate NY I go camping often).

The app is free and I released the source code for anyone to modify. If you notice that things are <ahem> less than polished, this is a feature not a bug (I swear!). I came up with a long TODO list which I'm going to use to drive a community workshop series on open source development @ the Guild. The series will be free for members (a modest fee will be charged to non-members to help support the group) and what I aim to do is develop the app on the spot. Any contributers will get their name in the changelog and I will periodically push updates with contributers code to the Android market. It should be a fun way to develop a geeky open source project in the 'cuse!

Be sure to check the SIG blog for more updates and other happenings
