    Digital Car for Android - Alpha

    Digital Car for Android Alpha 0.2 OUT NOW...


    Grab it from HERE


    WATCH THE BELOW VIDEO SO YOU KNOW HOW TO USE IT...


    New in this version (Alpha 0.2)


    Added 8 preset app buttons
    Added App Launcher
    Added Background chooser
    Added Power awareness
    Added Other media awareness, pauses for navigation / Tunein etc..
    Added lots more.. (apols, can't remember everything)


    Power awareness -
    1st set your device to sleep to 15 seconds - go to settings, display, sleep = 15 sec'd
    plug in your device and start Digital Car for Android up
    When you unplug it, it will pause and then let it self go to within 15 seconds
    Plug it back in and it will start playing


    Background -
    To set you own image as a background, goto your internal storage device and you will see a folder called DigitalCar/Backgrounds. Just store them in there and next time you start DC up it will have them included. Please keep the images around 100k so not to cause a bitmap loading error.


    I still need to do lots more, mainly in the settings.


    Have fun......




    To All,

    I've started to create a frontend on Android to run horizontal on a 7 inch or greater tablet. I'm after some testers to give me feedback / ideas etc.

    My key points that I want to achieve with this app are as follows;

    Easy to use (this is a MUST)
    Does not need any external applications
    Works first time

    At the moment I want it to do the following;
    Play media files (music and video)
    Onscreen volume controls

    Then, it will be .. what's next ?

    NOTE - I do intend to charge for this app once it's fully released into the play store, I don't want people to think that I've somehow mislead them so want to put this out there right from the start.

    Anyway, I will be releasing a DigitalCar.apk soon so you can have a play and report back.

    Please register your interest below; :-)

    thanks,

    Steve

    Count me in please......
    I have an original Galaxy Tab 7in GT-P1000 which i use constantly in the car for SatNav (Tomtom), Music, and Internet...
    Android is crying out for a "proper" Frontend, similar to what we have been used to on the CarPC platform ....
    Good luck with your efforts....

    Well, here is my first alpha release of Digital Car for Android...


    First Tip
    On the media screen you have 3 buttons (i,ii,iii) these remember folder locations. To SET the location, navigate to where you want and press and HOLD the button for 2 sec's.


    I've tested it on my Samsung Tab 8 and it seems to work fine. This is an 8 inch tablet with built in GPS.


    Please post comments / screen results etc. The more info you can supply the better.. ie tablet name / gps enabled etc..


    Grab it from http://www.cdrskull.co.uk/DigitalCar.zip


    Download it, unzip it and copy it over to your tablet. It will say it's from an untrusted source, but this is because it's not signed. (for testing)


    Have fun :-)

    Here's a little update...


    Now integrated google maps / chrome (sort off..) you can open the apps from inside Digital Car and my app displays the floating icon to get back :-)







    hopefully get some more done on the settings screen today.

    Nice.....
    Please let me know when you settle on a cheap Tab for your car that will run this for sure........ and I will invest.
    Pity my 7in Tab GT-P1000 isn't suitable..... but it was the original tech and OS ...
