Loan / Emprunt 1.0.1

I've released my first Android-ported app to the BlackBerry App World.

Loan / Emprunt is a very simple loan calculator, available in both French and English. I wrote it for my Dad last year, and figured it wouldn't take much to port.

I was right. It took nothing. The push of a button, and a slight modification to the about screen to remove a reference to Android. I just needed to check whether the app was running on a BlackBerry or not, using:

System.getProperty("os.name").equalsIgnoreCase("qnx")

I did have to wait for the PlayBook to arrive. I simply couldn't tell if it was working right under the emulator. Everything flashed all the time.

I haven't yet decided if I'm going to release it in an Android-compatible format or not. But as usual the source code is available.
