I am pleased to announce that the Chandler ecosystem gained a new
member: ChandlerQE for Android. Your phone is always with you, so you
can quickly send notes to the Chandler Hub, and then use Chandler
Desktop or your desktop browser to manage your items.
When you first launch ChandlerQE for Android, it will ask for the
Chandler Hub username and password. It will also try to automatically
connect to the Hub to fetch your collections every time you change your
username or password. The main UI consists of the title field, the
content field, the collections list, and the send button. You can
refresh your list of collections, and send notes to any of your collections.
This is also an experiment at doing something different in OSAF's
history. Even while OSAF had paid staff, there was ongoing discussion
about how to make the foundation self-sustaining. The Apple AppStore and
copycats have shown that people are willing to pay small amounts of
money for mobile software. I proposed to OSAF that we try this out with
ChandlerQE, and OSAF said yes. So while ChandlerQE for Android is Open
Source like everything else OSAF does, to download the installable
package from Android Market or SlideME I am asking for a small fee. I
will donate a percentage of the sales to OSAF.
