    Guess you can't manually change your device on google play anymore. If the app works on 4.0 (ICS), then you could change the 4.1 restriction on google play to include ICS. Then we can all start having fun with it.

    ok I'll look into downgrading it to ICS 4.0, I'm new to Android phones in general and had naively assumed every device would be up-to-date :biggrin:


    the sounds effects are hard coded, but I might consider changing it to load from file

    Well coolmint, I think that is pretty impressive that you took on this project and even more impressive that you are fairly new to Android. Hats off to you.

    If you're using Eclipse to develop in, then you just need to change the API that you're building against and recompile. Eclipse will let you know if you've used any code that is incompatible with a previous API.

    I'd really like to see the source code that you've used. It appears from your screencaps that you are using the same method I started with, but I couldn't get the randomness correct without writing my own method (API issue as I was building against Gingerbread API for a wider distribution). Would you mind creating a Github and uploading your source there please. I'm very interested in your randomization method.

    yep I'll make the changes and such when I get a chance in the next few days, and I'll upload the source code to the web too for those interested


    cheers :D

    Sounds great. Can you upload the code prior to making the API changes. This way, if anything breaks at least we have the original code to reference in addition the the necessary changes to backport.

    Good job mate!

    I get an error "there is a problem parsing the package." Any ideas on a workaround.

    Just downloaded it and I'm waiting for my first one now with a nice cup of tea. Very excited. Would be fantastic if you could put your own sigh in there, maybe for version 1.1, not sure how difficult that would be. Ill let you know how it goes

    Its great mate sterling effort. Love that you can select the time period. Thanks for putting the effort in. Only thing I'd change is the adding your own sound option. Still top class effort

    Cool thanks guys, I'll look into making a newer version in the future that allows the user to set their own sound effects

    It was crashed a few times and appears to make my phone act a little strange. Also I meant to ask. Is it set to sigh at some point within the selected time period or on the dot?
