Today I’m putting Goober for Android officially into retirement status. I received a reminder email from Google this morning that updates to my app will soon require a newer target Android API level. Normally this wouldn’t be a big deal however the framework I selected when I began this effort is now pretty far out of date and requires significant amount of work to bring current. I am no willing to devote time developing an application for Android, an operating system I no longer use or even recommend.
I’m going to officially put Goober into a maintenance only mode. The framework I used to initially create Goober for Android has progressed such that I feel some significant refactoring is in order however I’m not ready to tackle it at this time. I’ve got another project spinning up which I’ll discuss more in the near future. For now though Goober will only being getting critical bug fixes.
The latest Goober for Android has been released to the Google Play store. This update adds the ability to hide images in the timeline by default and a new profile view allowing you to view a users posts, follow, mute, or block. I also added a couple of tweaks to the post actions menu mostly for myself but perhaps others might find them useful as well.
