Project Android Tablet App

Post by Schani »

Hello,

I want to introduce my project that I working on. It is an Android Tablet remote app, which should simplify
the work with Samsung TVs. Since I only found Android Apps, that display only the actual remote, I started
to implement my own one. In addition, I found this great forum including Android Sources and examples, which
motivate me to do this.

Until now, I worked on the UI and some functionalities, such as chanel sortning by drag n drop, tv guide, etc.

Now I want to implement the actual functionality. Thus, I thought, I can get some ideas and answers for my questions to improve this application.

Here some impressions:

remote_smart.jpg
Currently I am working on the connection. I follow the implementation of the SamyGoRemote App and I want to show
a list with all TV in my environment. Here I want to display a more user friendly way by parsing the /rcr/RemoteControlReceiver.xml
in order to get the TV model name.

Now I have a question about the broadcast request. Somtimes the TV answers with a path to a different xml file. Why?
Additionally, I want to know if there other paths exist to retrieve information from the TV, such as all smart tv app icons installed on the
device? (The samsung app is able to do that!)

It would be great, if someone could help or have some ideas to improve this app.

Thanks in advance
Schani

Hi forum,

I have a question about my app, which I introduced here before.
I am looking for an app name, but I am still not sure about that.

My question is, can I use "SamyGo" as a part of the app name, e.g. "SamyGo Tablet Remote"?
I think this would be fair, cause I am using SamyGo sources.

Thanks
Schani

Hi, i think if your app doesn't harm tv and makes no damage for pc, you will support your app here on the forum and share sources, then I think here is no reason to forbid to use SamyGO as part of your project name

Kind regards,

Thanks! :)

Indeed I am planning a Smartphone version after releasing the tablet one.
I think the smartphone app will be a "light" version with a subset of features
due to the small screen.

In addition, I want to support at least Android 2.3 and I will implement and test it on an old HTC Desire!
