[Android App] BWK:Connector
« on: 2013-11-16 13:59:51 »
I'am developed a simple App for android who show you your current-games and notify you if there is some game who needs you attention.

Because i'am don't have an official permission from KING Art Games, this is a unsigned package (you need to allow that in you Android settings). As soon as i get the permission from KAG i will ad some more Features (Read Messages, Statistics etc) and hopefully make a better looking design (including an 10'' one...)


So long feel free to test :D

AppInformation:
Required Android Version: 2.3.3 (and above) (tested with 2.3.3 and 4.1.0)
Required Rights: Internet Access (need to query the BWK server), SystemTools (need to setup an notification service)
Important information: your bwk account data will be stored in the app-settings (only accessable by root-processes or the app itself) in plain text because the app need this information in plain to authenticate successfully against the BWK Server.

Wow, thats an awesome idea. I hope KAG is watching. As I do not own an Android device I still hope there will be an option to send an email if it is your move. Nevertheless, keep up the good work.

nice! I have another feature suggestion: How about showing the name of the map a game is played on as well? Would be handy for currently open game which are shown by your app.

This is planned but currently delayed, because i don't want to put "ingame-assets" into the game without permission from KingArt Games

Hi Raptor,

I think the trains update broke the BWK:Connector again. Maybe you have time to look into it and hopefully it's an easy thing to fix

This will take a little longer. I upgraded my Kubuntu 12.04 to 14.04, so i have to reinstall my Eclipse. hopefully i will be able to generate a new package tomorrow
