Android Developer Challenge Part One Ends Today

Today the first part of Android Developer Challenge (ADC) ends. Good luck to all the folks who submitted an application! So in a few days or weeks we should have a new version of the SDK released, because Google did not want to release another SDK release before ADC ended, not to further confuse developers. As a lone developer, I depend on a stable SDK and toolchain and I think that the next releases of the SDK will fix things without breaking existing stuff. As you may have noticed, I did not update MonolithAndroid for the m5 series SDK, because I got an error message that informed me that the functionality I intended to use is currently broken and will be fixed in a future version of the SDK. I decided to wait for the fix, because I didn't have the time to change my code. Also, out of laziness and being put down by the major SDK changes of m5 series, I did not add any of the originally planned functionality to MonolithAndroid. Now that ADC is over, I will take my time in developing this little baby project of mine.

Hey there, just wanted to share the Android application I just finished developing for the Challenge.

Scan is an Android application that finds pricing and metadata for anything with a barcode. Check out the 3-minute video showing it in action with real barcodes:
