I just published SpeakerProximity version 0.3.1 beta to the Market as a donate version.
This is an OpenSource app, the code and an APK is available on the Project page
I got a mail from Mountain View today morning at 00:49 telling me about the new opened paid markets and to my surprise they allow merchant accounts for 20 more countries now.
I updated the Frozen Egg app and added a local highscore.
At the moment, it just displays the scores and the place but I want to add the ability of a nickname that can be entered for each score to have competitions on one phone.
Next step then would be a online highscore where you can compete with all users.
Another idea I had was a 2player mode over internet but this would need more time for developing and I haven't started, just had my toughs about how.
I made an easter theme for Pawel Aleksander Fedorynski's port of Frozen Bubble and published it to the market as Frozen Egg (market://search?q=pname:ch.racic.frozenegg).
All credits belong to him as I just edited the graphics file.
brut.all patched the new 3.4.0 version of maps from the eclair builds.
Of course, this works just on eclair builds or builds that have the MT framework stuff inside like Cyanogenmod.

Brut.all fixed an issue that certain people discovered and this should help the people that had force closes while starting the navigation.
For root users: http://s.2030.tk/gmapnavroot
For normal users: http://s.2030.tk/gmapnav
If you need the commands how to install the root version see my previous blog post.
For all the people that don't live in the US but want Navigation on their Android device...
Brut.all did it again ;-) and he has my respect for this, if you want to buy him a beer like I did just click here
As you may have discovered, Google has changed the way to get Navigation data on the server side, this means that the prior hack with the Navigation Flag isn't working anymore because they implemented now server side security (instead of just security by obscurity on the client side).
The new hack doesn't work the same way, instead it is the original proxy idea but done inside the app so no need for a special proxy.
How do you install the new Maps?
Thats very easy, just download the version you want to install
For root users: http://ul.to/ol9h9t
For normal users: http://ul.to/368xcu
Normal users will have two maps applications like with the old hack.
I included AdMob ads in the latest 2 releases of MarketEnabler and it's running now since 27.11.09 so I can't say that much about Advertising with AdMob.
If you don't now what MarketEnabler is, see http://market-enabler.googlecode.com
Until now, I'm not very pleased with the ads from AdMob for various reasons:
- The revenues are not very clear, I don't know exactly how they come together (I think this is on most ad providers)
