I’ve made some more progress on what will be my first Android market application – “Where is Io”. I’ve learned a lot about sqlite performance on the phone, which isn’t bad as long as you limit the number of database opens you do. I’m also trying to make the interface more self explanatory to even those with less astronomy knowledge. Here are the current screen shots:
I’m not going to explain anything else on the interface, but I would love questions / comments in the blog if this seems confusing. My “must do” task list probably puts this at about 2 weeks away from publish into the market. Fortunately, Jupiter is only just coming out of the Sun now (with a missing belt!) so as long as I get this out in the next month or so it will be useful to folks.
