Wherigo for WebOS

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm using webOS for years for geocaching too and I don't want to buy Garmin GPS to play Wherigo. So there is the idea:

 

I'm looking for some topic for my Bachelor's project and one idea is to do Wherigo Player for WebOS. This topic is no announcement that tomorrow it will be in AppCatalog, but I would like to hear, if there will be interest for this app or if someone will give me some tips or to say me that it is bulls*** ;)

 

Some notes:

There is about 30 owners of Pre 3, 40 owners of Veer and about 3000 owners of old Pre. How many of them are active and how many of them would like to play Wherigo?

App should be rewritten from OpenWIG in Java to SDK or PDK? Also as Opensource.

 

In the future, I would like to write some topics on HP discussions, WebOSNation forums and to some discussion about OpenWIG to collect some more informations.

 

I'm looking forward to some feedback from users, (or maybe Groundspeak?),

As far as I can gauge Groundspeak's stance on the matter, they'd be very interested to see what you come up with; they're not going to stop you. For that matter, I've always been interested to see what others come up with.

 

You'll find the community here is willing to answer questions and provide feedback if you need either.

I just googled for a Wherigo webos player.

 

Yes! I look for something like that.

 

I use a pre3, a veer and a Touchpad...

 

I'd love to be a beta tester ;)

Just one more question:

What do you want to say with those numbers?

 

30 Owners of Pre3 and 40 veer?

 

So minimum 3 of those deviceusers are sitting in my office, using it for caching

(2x veer, 1x Pre3, 2x Touchpad)

 

I do not hope that this is the worldwide webOS Community here.

 

I bought Maptoolpro, I use GC-Gogo everyday.

 

Things I could add to an App like that: German translation!

These are numbers from geocaching and users, who filled in their geocaching devices:

http://www.geocaching.com/reviews/gps_hp-compaq_pre3 and other devices ...

This may not be a final number, but I'm interested only in people who plays geocaching and would like to play Wherigo on their phones too. I know, that Wherigo usage can be wider than geocahing, but this is main stream.

 

When I will be looking for webOS community, I'll look in webOSNation or HP phorums. Now I'm looking for geocaching community.

 

Thank you all for first responses. German translation would be nice. In German I'm not so good :) When something starts, I'll notify you.

Hi guys,

I'm here back with news about Wherigo for WebOS. I just figured out compatibility with older devices and I´m looking for testers.

 

Please, write me, if you would like to participate.

 

Application is not done yet, but some aspects of UI and functionality can be tested during next weeks.

I'd like to see what you have done, but I do not have a device with that OS. Could you post some screen shots, please?

Today, it is not yet fully working app, so I can take screenshots of main screen with cartridges, cartridge detail and not-working main game screen.

It is just what I build with Enyo framework during last days and can be changed. This is yet connected to backend but main game is on the way :)

 

Thanks for you interest,

Jakuje

Bump.

 

App is ready for first testers. If you are interested, write me message.

 

\\ Ranger Fox, can you, please, remove the images, from my post above? I have got some problem with SSL certificate, so it doesn't look well. I will add other.
