Web apps

Relatedness Calculator

Direct link Source code Leave feedback

Ever wondered how you’re related to your second cousin? How about your great half-uncle? And what in the world is a “double cousin,” anyway? The Relatedness Calculator can answer all these questions and more, drawing a nice little graph and calculating the relatedness coefficient for many different kinds of relations.

Imperial Calculator

Direct link Source code Leave feedback

End-of-game score calculator for the board game Imperial. It was basically just a “Hello World” app to teach myself AngularJS, Bootstrap, and PhoneGap, but you might find it useful if you like the ingenious board game by Mac Gerdts.

Japanese Name Converter

Transliterates English names into Japanese characters – both katakana and roomaji. Uses the machine learning method described in this post.

Ultimate Crossword

ultimate_crossword_screenshot

Inspired by an XKCD comic, it’s a crossword-solving app based on a leaked database of password hints. It makes an important statement about password security (I hope), and plus, it’s fun to try to “solve”!


 

Android apps

CatLog

Google Play Direct APK download Source code Leave feedback

I was disappointed with the other Logcat applications on the Market, so I wrote this one. It’s basically everything you’d ever want in a Logcat app. Record logs in the background? Check. Save, open, and send logs? Check. Home screen widget? Check. If you needed a kitchen sink to read logs, I would have added that, too.

Developers: You can invoke CatLog from an external Intent. Learn how.

Chord Reader

Google Play Direct APK download Source code Leave feedback

A straightforward app that allows you to download chord charts from the Interwebs and transpose them. I wrote it because I was tired of having to manually transpose all my chord charts in order to accommodate my pathetically tiny vocal range. It also shows guitar fingerings for each chord.

KeepScore

Google Play Direct APK download Source code Leave feedback

KeepScore is a score-keeping app that can be useful for any game requiring you to tally points as you play, such as hearts, Carcassonne, Scrabble, etc. I wrote it because I like to play cribbage, but I found all the other score-keeping apps on the Android Market to be too clumsy and awkward.

For older Android devices (< 2.1 Eclair), please download the legacy 1.1.4 version of the APK.

Pokédroid

The perfect app for either the Pokémaniac who’s gotta catch ’em all or the Gen-Y hipster trying to be ironic. It started out as something of a joke app, since the main feature was that it used the Android TTS engine to speak aloud each Pokémon’s description, similar to the Pokédex in the TV show. Now it’s more of a full-on strategy guide, with lots of detailed info for Pokémon gamers. Supports generations three through five.

Note: In June of 2011, Pokédroid was removed from the Google Play Store due to a DMCA takedown notice from The Pokémon Company (TPC). I spoke with TPC to try to work out a mutually advantageous solution, but for now the future of the app is still uncertain. Currently, I am neither developing nor publishing it, and if you would like the APK, you’ll have to look for it in the disreputable back-channels of the Internet.
