    source code and associated resource files download:

    Download

    feel free to ask any questions



    really? hmm was there any error displayed, and was it doing something at the time (like playing the audio) or on idle?


    it plays the audio file at a random interval within the set period (or supposed to anyway)

    It wasn't doing anything although I'd guess a few apps running in background like browser and watsapp. Probably received a message or two as well. I'm also running golauncher. That seems to make a problem or two. It said "unfortunately, *** has stopped". Can't remember whether it said application or grumblebot

    That error seems to come up a lot on google, have you tried clearing any previous instances of the app before downloading again?

    has anyone else had trouble downloading grumblebot from google play?

    Wow.... really! There are 4 other pages of people discussing this. Take a look at those and then hop in somewhere.

    Hey if you fancy throwing your hat into the ring mate go for it. Nothing makes sighing more random than multiple sigh applications. I wouldn't mind having another as well

    I did it!!! Sort of! :)

    I just made a simple version of this app. I uploaded it to Google Play, so if anyone wants it, I will edit this post later with the link. Happy programming!!

    Can you also post the source code. Uplinking it to Github would be even better. I'm curious how you got around the randomization problem I was having.
    This looks like it is becoming a very active post. I like it!

    Basic Version

    Sadly I haven't gotten past the randomization problem either. I just created the very basic version, and will eventually update when I figure it out. The link to the app on Google Play is
    Code:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.randomappsinc.sighingandroid
    . I'm glad this is finally becoming active!

    Nice one for having a crack and it's a shame the randomise feature is causing problem still. 62pence is a bit steep for a prototype though :/

    Unfortunately, it appears that randomizatin can not be handled by an Android service. A specific service will need to be written. Creating a random service isn't too hard, it's the wake lock issue. Having a service that doesn't require a wake lock is going to be tough.... at least for my skills. I still think we need to work on this as a team and setup a github for everyone to contribute to rather than each individual designing their own version. If we can't solve the randomizstion problem, then it doesn't matter how many personal versions we have floating around.

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing today. I have changed the app price to free, and I might offer packs of sighs/sounds to buy within the app. Get the app, and let me know what you think!:biggrin:
