My First Android App “MyGoals”

After having seen a lot of buzz about Android over the last few years, I always wanted to dive into android development. The main motive behind it is that it is open source and a lot of potential the moment it was out. I really like android platform, I have android based mobile as well and we have every kind of app available on its app market. I found some time to dig into android development and made my very first android app named My Goals made with native Java.

In my last article, I had shared GoodTodo app which can be used to set ToDos in your browser; here is My Goals app that you can use to set your todos or goals via mobile as well:

GoodTodo PHP and SQlite App

I really like to keep track of tasks and projects (personal or otherwise) I work on. I used to keep my todos list in notepad or by using some other sticky notes application but I wanted dead simple todos app with beautiful looks and simple to use without irrelevant options or goodies. So here I introduce GoodTodo; a todo app made via PHP and SQlite. I chose SQlite because I wanted to make sure that app is portable and of course since it’s small todo app, choosing SQlite for it makes perfect sense. I have used flightPHP framework and idiorm ORM for it.

Here are its screenshots:

localhost todo home localhost todo settings localhost todo categories

 

How to use:

Make sure you have wamp/xampp or other stack installed. Download the app and put in www/htdocs folder and browse to that folder via browser something like http://localhost/todo. Please make sure you have sqlite extension turned on from php.ini if it isn’t already.

So go ahead and download GoodTodo to keep track of your todos.

 

Developer Wallpaper

I like to keep my desktop clean and icons categorized. I had been using Fences but it seems it doesn’t work well with Windows 8.1 and is no more a free product. This made me create custom wallpaper that would help me with categorization of desktop icons thereby allowing me to coin the term Developer Wallpaper or Programmer Wallpaper. I create two categories; one for development related softwares while other for general programs. Here is how my office desktop looks:
