This isn’t anything to do with that Google program. I’m just putting out a quick post about what I’m up to these days.
I’ve jumped back into mobile development once more now focusing on Ubuntu Phone and Sailfish OS. I see a lot of potential in both of these platforms and some opportunity to expand my skills while having a little fun. I have a social app currently being roughed out and in development.
Another minor update is available for all BlackBerry 10 devices in BlackBerry World which fixes UTF-8 support. This application will be in maintenance mode for now only handling bug fixes as they surface. As such I’ve decided to make Renamed Todo available for free. I’m working on a rewrite bringing it to more platforms and will be putting the new code out as open source. More to come on that soon.
I was hoping this release would include new features but time was not on my side this go around. I decided to go ahead with a minor bug fix release instead. Solving an erroneous authentication error when authorizing the app with Dropbox. Enjoy and stay tuned for more enhancements down the road.

It’s been a crazy busy 2014 and there are no signs that it will let up anytime soon. I have a tendency to line up several projects which I don’t necessarily have time for but work on anyway. So here is a quick recap of what I have brewing in the background.
Over the last year or so BlackBerry has gone through a lot of much needed transformation as a company.
With a new device release on the horizon and a feature request list that continues to grow it’s time to get another update out to the world. The most notable changes are the UI adjustments to accommodate a bigger screen resolution and the new permission being requested for analytics. I have also added a few additional contact points in the about screen for those who don’t necessarily want to communicate through email.
