We created an online app for you to check and manage your Neato Robotics botvac vacuum cleaner from anywhere, even when you don’t have your Neato app at hand. It’s free of course and can be found here: https://neato.greenledsoftware.nl/
You just login with your Neato credentials and via a secure connection you are begin redirected back to our app. At this time you can start, stop and dock your robot vacuum and check schedule and WiFi info.
Check it out and let us know what you think of it!
The StayOn app changes the screen timeout, which in Android is a system settings. In newer Android versions, with increased security settings, an app has to explicityly ask for the rights to change system settings. So when you download the StayOn app in a newer Android version, you will be asked to allow the StayOn to change system settings.
I started working on the “Am I connected” app this week.
My designer created all of the artwork (more about that in a later post) and all of the code already lives in my head.
Now it’s time to transfer all of the code from my head into the development environment (which is Eclipse, if you want to know).
A lot of time is spent on creating the screen. Even though it is only one screen, it takes a lot of time to get all things aligned right.
I was used to create screens in Microsoft Windows applications a few years ago and in my opinion it was a lot easier to create screens for the Windows app than for an Android app.
But on the other hand it’s fun to find out new ways to do stuff!
So the next weekend I’ll spend some time to create the logic behind the screen, and then the testing can start!
Keep you posted…
Actually it’s 2 screens because I create one for the portrait layout and one for the landscape layout.
