VLOG for Symbian for editing Maps

by admin on November 10, 2012

(text from the vlog website)

Now you should not search for a map before going to an unknown city.
The program will load maps through the Internet worldwide.
The source of maps – openstreetmap.com. On this site any owner of the GPS-receiver can draw maps of his own district.

The program is written under Symbian (version 9.2 OS, Series 60 3-rd Edition Feature Pack 1)
and checked while only on my phone Nokia N95.
Therefore I can say nothing about compatibility with other devices

1. Add mapping POI (Points Of Interest) – drugstores, shops, the gas station etc.
2. Add routing.
3. Write version for Windows Mobile.
4. To make interaction with a site gpslog.org on record, storage, an exchange of tracks and coordinates, and also to tracking objects.

Grocery List for Blackberry

by admin on May 5, 2012

GroceryList is simple and efficient even for large inventories. The two primary things you do with it are add items to the list for your next shopping trip and go shopping with the list.

Adding to the list is quick because you don’t re-type items you’ve added in the past. In the search box, you just start typing any part of the item you want to add. The list of matching items that appears will shrink quickly as you type until you are left with just a few or possibly just one item to select from. Items already on the list will be in black. Items not yet on the list will be greyed-out.

ReelPortal for Video Chat

by admin on April 28, 2012

Finally there seems to be a decent Video Chat App for Blackberry Playbook.

What is ReelPortal?

ReelPortal is an easy-to-use video chat and conference system.  ReelPortal is intentionally designed for a future where small, efficient, yet powerful video-capable computing devices are ubiquitous inside every home and office, replacing the traditional telephone.  As such, these devices will always be on, and serve as standard communication tools between users, regardless of their physical location.

ReelPortal users can call each other directly via their nicknames, which can be anything of their choosing (given name, phone number, etc).  Just like the traditional telephone, there is no need to log in with an account and password to place a call.  So how would the callee identify the caller, you may ask.  Like the traditional telephone, ReelPortal assumes the callee can identify the caller by voice, and perhaps by their face.

Beyond the calling aspect, ReelPortal users can opt to create a unique private room, where they can invite friends and family to join for a multi-way video conference.  Users joining a room need only to know the room name, and room key (if any).  Once in, they are automatically connected to everyone in that room.  Thus, there is no need to even know the nicks of the participants.  Again, the participants are identified by their voice and face. Users may adopt a personal room as their own, where friends and family can join and check whether they are available.

Within the home or office, ReelPortal can also serve as an active, local video intercom system.  But with an adequate internet connection, this system can be extended globally, effortlessly.  Starting a conversation would be just a click away.  As an intercom system, ReelPortal maintains connections between devices indefinitely, with fault-tolerant logic to detect and retry any broken connection.  With this capability, users can move in and out of networks (3G/WiFi) with minimal disruptions.
