I wasn’t happy with the performance of the Google Activity Recognition Service as it was creating problems with the response to user movements during navigation.
Taking it out and replacing it with my own algorithm not only reduced the overall size of the application but has improved performance significantly. Future enhancements will largely address user interface elements.
If you would like to see additional features added such as an automated emergency notice which shares your current location via SMS. Please let me know in the comments below or contact me via Google+ or Facebook.
The first release of Spot It! for Android mobile devices is now available in Google Play Store.
After several months of testing and refinement, I have decided it is time to publish my first Android mobile device application. I was hoping to limit listing in the Android Play Store to phones only since most tablet and pad machines don’t use a telco connection to the Internet. But I will need to exclude listing for specific makes and models instead of a more broad category of machines.
Let me know if the application doesn’t work on your machine and I will add your make and model to the device compatibility listing exclusions in the Play Store. I look forward to learning about your experience and opinions using Spot It! in the comments below. Join me on Spot It! on Google+ if you can.
