Hi everybody, my name is Paulo Cesar, and I was invited to participate on the Maemo planet recently. Here I’ll post about my adventures with Maemo development.
My first ‘test’ application is actually something that’s very useful for me: a Gmail client. Well, technically the client isn’t mine, it’s from Google, and for iPhones. My application is a little webkit browser made in Qt that identifies itself as iPhone’s Safari, and it uses kinetic scrolling to have a similar behavior as iPhone.
This is a picture of it’s first version:
I made a video too, so you can see the kinetic scrolling in action:
After that, I added a little bunch of goodies to it, basic stuff, like a name, an icon, a loading animation and error handling. The name it’s Macuco, and the logo it’s this nice bird my wife draw for me 🙂
Well, if you want to test it yourself, the application was already submitted to Maemo Extras Devel, and if you like it and want to contribute with code, it’s everything published at:
