An app like this would be super easy to make.
Coming up with equations for those numbers is probably the most difficult part.
I have a working alpha... I would like some input on the way it calculates everything.
I am looking for less than 5 people that would like to help try it out. This is an alpha so it is only testing functionality... pm me if you would like to try it.
I feel it is half working now so I can release a beta to a few more people to help with testing.
First, let me warn you that this is a beta, it isn't pretty but is currently setup to review the functionality. The layout is close to where things will be in the final but pictures/colors/fonts etc are not.
Second, it is a beta, one day I used 25% of my battery driving to work for 30 minutes. Thats the way life is. At some point the battery use will become acceptable but until then, the app might be a little power hungry.
Third, feedback. I cannot think of everything and feedback is always welcomed. If you don't like the colors because you can't see them (color blind) then let me know. I am not color blind and I'm not a lot of things so I can't experience everything. Feed back is wonderful!
The file is here:
The best way to help out is to use the app while driving and see if it is judging your driving correctly. Is it too nice? too harsh? Let me know what you think. It would also help if you post your vehicle.
Current version doesn't display well enough that a typical user can understand it is working. I will fix it tonight and start including build #s.
On a good note the GPS didn't eat much of my battery!
iPirate, I drive a semi locally, and have the ability to cover 200-500 miles in a day, and can leave my phone on the charger. Are you looking for logs, or just overall impressions of the app? Im more than willing to give it a go, let me know.
I touched Lord Stanley's Cup on 1/2/11.
Currently I need to make sure the equations for the Acceleration/Braking/Speed make sense. The reason I ask about the vehicle you drive is because I am planning to make "profiles" for different types of vehicles and change the ranges of values to better match those vehicles. Me accelerating at 2 miles per second might be a 7 or 8 but a semi doing that should get a 0 or 1.
I fixed the issue with not displaying values, you can download from the link above. I'm going to tweak it some more and give newer builds version names and link them.
this version works nicely!
