Among many other devices I appeared to own LG G-Slate v909 Android tablet, I was given on one of the Google dev meetups. Quite neat device at its time, with built-in 3D camera mode and stuff, unfortunately LG already abandoned the model some time ago and the last available Android version is ancient Honeycomb and there’s no other custom firmware that is really usable, so it was mostly collecting dust these days as I was not really using the device for long time. But few days ago I wanted to give it away but found it pattern-locked.

While working on some Android projects I faced small issue related to localisation files. Since there’s no built-in mechanism that helps you keep all these files in sync I crafted small PHP command line script to help me keep my translations up to date with english base strings. Since this seems to be common problem for other translators as well, I decided to share my script. Feel free to use it as you want. I do not mind if you credit me anyway

Where Am I? 1.12 came with some issues which I decided to address instantly. So 1.13 is for those who dislike device crashing while WAI tries to query Bluetooth device and your Palm has BT feature turned off. Also online version checker misbehaved slightly. Please report any issues spotted using comments here.

Where Am I? version 1.12 is out. I decided to change release policy and version 1.12 is the first one which brings all its features to everyone. Yes – it is fully featured. You can now fully test the application, test if all works as you expect and before you decide to place your donation. Sort of side-effect of this move is that on-line version checker and updater will work for each version, not just for demo version as it used to be. Enjoy your summer trips with WAI.

By default, Sony’s PS3 Eye camera does not work under anything beside Playstation 3. Fortunately since its release, a couple of 3rd party drivers were released, theoretically allowing you to use Eye as regular web cam.

Where Am I? version 1.11 is out, addressing crash issue that was reported to occur on some devices during BT connection problems.
Happy New Year 2009 by the way

I’ve received couple of reports that WAI? is behaving incorrectly on devices that come with Google Maps Mobile preinstalled in ROM (mostly Treo 755p, Centro CDMA Sprint etc.). Palm OS allows you to "override" ROM application by installing its newer version in RAM which shaall be called now instead of ROM one. Unfortunately WAI? was not working that way and kept calling ROM GMM no matter of update present in RAM. As you probably have guessed, version 1.10 addresses this problem.

And after a bit of delay here comes new release of Where Am I? utility. Version 1.9 is a minor update and brings (donors’ version only) persistence to GPS readouts, so you can quit WAI and relaunch it and it will remember last coordinates received from your GPS unit with time stamp for reference. Additionally you can find "Cut coords" and "Clear coords" in application "Edit" menu. It also fixes an issue (or annoyance) that made WAI to unconditionally invalidate previous readout (if present) while attempting to get new one, no matter if succeeded or failed. Now, it invalidates it only if there’s new coordinates to replace the old data.
