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:
