Update (Twitter): Warframe Alerts App - By Kingtaro

Recommended Posts

@Synikal and GTG3000

Thank you for volunteering to act as guinepigs... I mean beta testers. With your info (and knowing what version of android is on your devices) I have already found some glitches/Issues.

First, turns out I was using code for the Notifications that was incompatible with older phones: This has been fixes and is ready for testing.

Second, the app crashes right away if you do not have a ready internet connection: I am still working on this.

Third, crash on exit on Ice cream sandwich 4.0.3: Still working on this one.

EDIT: Third has been Solved.

Go ahead and re-download the app (from the same address), and try again.

Sweet, it is working great on all of my devices I've tested!

Can't wait for the graphical UI Update :D

For testing Purposes could you list what devices you tested and the Operating System Version?

Instead of throwing out new submissions you should review them yourself to see if they are legit

That way you can accept people without them having to come here and ask for it

Also same forum name as my name on your site

@BlueZu and MaximumSquid

 

Your accounts have been approved, so you'll be able to submit new alerts from now on!

Thanks for the support guys!

 

 

Regards,

 

Taro.

 

 

 

PS: Also want to let you guys know that just yesterday the app hit a new record of +2000 visits/day!

Usually it's around 1000-1500 every day.

It's probably still just a small portion of the Warframe community, but it made me really happy to see that there are still a lot of people supporting the app!

Thank you guys, really appreciate it!

Just signed up for KingTaro. My username is MersennePrime, same as here to avoid confusion.

Also, sorry if this question has been asked before, but do you plan on making an app for the iPhone?

@MersennePrime

As soon as an iPhone developer decides to pick up the project, then you will see an iPhone app. Right now there is just KingTaro working on the main system and web app, and I'm working on a full android app. I don't think either of us are set up to do iPhone programing.

Hey guys. I was wondering, since now we have alerts dispatched automatically via twitter/facebook/rss, wouldn't it be easier to use one of these streams to update your apps instead of manual submissions ? This way we would get alerted the second the alert goes up, without any possible errors.

The RSS feed looks do able. It will require some extra work parsing the data. I'll see what I can do. But first, I have some bug fixes and the graphical layout to do. I may make an alternative app just for the RSS feed based on the one I am making now.

UPDATE:

The Release version of my Android app is complete!!!

Features:

*Scrollable UI that mimics the appearance of KingTaro's web app.

*Native Android notification system

*Background service that can stay in memory to monitor updates.

*Setting controls to change notification properties, ringtone, and update period.

*COMPATABLE WITH OLDER ANDROID DEVICES!!!

Since I consider this an open source project, I am also providing all of the project files used. Just give me credit as the creator of the programming and KingTaro credit for the original concept, design, and web app system.

Edit: I will be taking a break from android programming in order to prep for my new job (which is also programming but in a different language and system). I still plan on making an alternative version of this app that uses the new official RSS feed, however I would not expect it anytime soon as now it will be on my limited spare time.

The new one crashes again. Oh well.

[edit]

I'm an idiot. Forgot to add it to iptables whitelist. Now the background process works. Interface - crashes.

Yup, I already use this, but I would prefer it on my Android than my Desktop, I'm not a fan of having too many overlays.

Sorry for the inconvenience. It turned out that I used setBackground (api level 16) instead of setBackgroundDrawable (api level 1). The one thing I dislike about programming for backwards compatibility on android is keeping all the methods straight.

Re-install the app and try agien. Hopefully I fought the last of the incompatibilities.

Thank you! Now everything aside from 'about' is working!

Apparently I had more time today then I realize.

Here is an alternate version of the android app that uses the official Twitter Alerts.

Features include:

*uses official Twitter alerts. This speeds up response time.

*Includes Credit rewards

*Setting to limit alerts to artifact and blueprint rewards only

*Setting to only show Artifact and Blue print reward alerts.(default on. Turn this off to see credit only alerts as well).

Download: http://db.tt/igGgaMlO

NOTICE: YOU MAY HAVE TO UNINSTALL OLD APP BEFORE DOWNLOADING!!!
