HTC Front Camera bug

Posted: May 30, 2010 in Android

Just as in the HTC G1,the HTC Evo 4g front facing camera has a bug except this time the camera produces a mirror image. Thus, its a different work around for anyone one coding video call software. The NDK JNI approach would be to flip frames on the nativeside and pass back.

Fro those who cannot find the link, Google IO Live.

The Android 2.2 Sdk release is probably on Wed morning. But, this sdk release is different.

Not only do we have a quarter where android device sales surpassed iphone(remember I told you it was going to happen in 2010 not 2011), we also have an Android SDK that represents both Google and OHA taking outside suggestions and incorporating that into the SDK. Such improvements as a Dalvik Just-In-time(JIT) unit and being able to store applications on a SD-card.

Pro Android Games

Posted: May 9, 2010 in Android

Pro Android Games is probably the best android game programming book considering the alpha/beta quality of game engines and lack of JIT. The book steps you through OpenGL on the native side so that you could  build your own 2d or 3d game engine.

Yes, there is a Google Knol about Eclipse Android NDK settings being written. Should be finished and published in the next few days.
