10 things I like about the T-Mobile G1 (and Android)

I picked up a T-Mobile G1 in December after my BlackBerry 8800 stopped charging (broken USB connector). After using it for the last ~6 months, I have to say that its one of the best phones I’ve owned. Disclaimer: This isn’t a “why the G1 is better than an (iphone, blackberry, etc,.)” post, its just some things I really like about the G1. This list is in no particular order, FYI....

MyLocation for Android

I just made a simple Android app, using the new Android 1.5 SDK (Cupcake), that will show your current location using GPS or Wireless Networks. For GPS, you can also see number of satellites, as well as fix time. There will be an update soon to show more information about the satellites. Check out the screenshots:

MoosTrax Testers Needed

The new implementation of the site is just about done. I am looking for people with BlackBerry and Android devices that are willing to help testing the new site and software. If you are interested, please e-mail moostraxsupport@gmail.com Also, the first version of the Android client is finished. It is now available on the Android market. You must have a MoosTrax account to use the application though. E-mail moostraxsupport@gmail.com for more information....

MoosTrax will return.

Yes, I recently made a post saying that MoosTrax will be going away forever. Due to all the comments and feedback, it is obvious to me that there are many people that enjoyed the service – so I’m going to bring it back. I’m moving my database backend from CouchDB to MySQL, so my issues with CouchDB won’t prevent me from providing MoosTrax. I have been working a lot on migrating the site and fixing it up…so I really hope to have it up in the next week or so....

MoosTrax for Android

I just recently replaced my BlackBerry 8800 with a T-Mobile G1. This means that its time to develop a MoosTrax client for Android devices. Right now I’m getting my Android development environment setup, with the insanely slow Java powered Eclipse. After that I’ll dig into the location API and get a MoosTrax client released.
