Slashdot Reader Widget for Android now available

I was shocked! 

Imagine there used to be no Android widget for Slashdot, simply unthinkable! I learned this when full of confidence I looked for one on the Android Market place and came up with nothing. I’ve been a Slashdot reader for years, I’d even go as far as to say that ./ is then only source of news I check regularly, and now this. 

There were plenty of Slashdot branded RSS reader apps but no home screen widgets. This horrible oversight has now been remedied, I’ve worked relentlessly over the past few weeks and last night (at around 2PM Sydney time) I’ve published my masterpiece. It’s only 99c so go get it. And if you have an iPhone then throw it away, get your self the latest Google phone and then get the widget :)

Long time no posts…

It has been quite a while since I’ve last put up a post. Much has happened since then.

  1. We’ve sold Cotopia so this blog is under my own name a no longer under the “Cotopia” name. All the posts are still here, just under a different heading
  2. I’ve made my peace with Maven (still hate Maven / Eclipse RPC integration) and use it on all my projects by default :)
  3. I’ve moved from JavaME to mostly Android and iPhone development and this will inevitably be reflected in the content of this blog
