GoogSMS 0.1 for Android

So what do I do on a long weekend, take a few steroids, and port my old J2ME applications to Android.

I don't have a G1, so I have to tip my hat to the folks on #android for helping. Especially languish for going all out.

I ported three apps, the last one, and probably most useful, GoogSMS is a simple (and quick) front end for Google SMS.

GoogSMS supports the following type of queries:

  • Search
  • Web Snippets
  • Local Search
  • Local Movies
  • Local Weather
  • Airports
  • Area Codes
  • Calculator
  • Currency Conversion
  • Directions
  • Flights
  • Glossary
  • Maps
  • Movies
  • Products
  • Q&A
  • Sports
  • Stocks
  • Translation
  • Weather
  • Zip Codes

It is based on the old favorite, GooglME.

GoogSMS is on the Android Market, just search for it. Alternatively you can also download it from my Android apps page.

If you have comments, please leave them here. Comments left on the Android Market are unfortunately not accessible from the web, or the emulator.

As usual the source code is in my public svn repository. If you're a developer, you might also be interested in a little drag/drop batch file I wrote for quickly signing apps.

One a side note, this is the first serious programming I've done in over a year. Man, does it feel good.
