Chatoid: a Gtalk application with gps tools

The Rho team (that’s me and two friends) finally finished their Android developer’s challenge app and submitted it last Saturday. The app is based on GTalk and lets you chat with your friends, locate them, send them location-enhanced messages, and share an annotation map session with them. Implementation of the whole thing took us three months of spare time and one week of intense hacking. Let’s hope we get to the second round =) Here are some screenshots:

One member of the Rho team decided to make and try to submit his own project, which he named TouchMe. TouchMe is a novel way to write on a touch screen; much easier and usually faster than a virtual keyboard. Sadly, TouchMe could not be integrated with Chatoid on time and its creator decided that it was too unpolished to be submitted. Let’s hope that it does see the light sometime in the future.

Final stats (for Chatoid): 32 java classes, 6 packages, 53 files, 51 subversion commits (that’s a bit too low, no?).
