My new app Active Screen 
https://uappexplorer.com/app/activescreen.mivoligo
The app was created as a proof of concept, mainly for my needs.
You can use it to keep the screen awake on your phone. Just tap the button and leave the app running. And then you can use other apps without worrying that your screen goes off. Useful when reading ebooks, documents, web pages etc.

Holograms with UBUNTU phone!

All you need, is an old CD jewel case and a little bit of #QML programming knowledge for the OpenGL "affine transformation", a slight correction of perspective of your #Blender3D made holograms. Upcoming UNITY 8 is capable to do that out of the box, see Raspberry Pi 2 #Qt5 examples: https://youtu.be/0j-Wakm5B84

Dark room, some spots, recording people with 4 cheap, independent USB cams from all 4 perspective view angles is also possible. Blender helps to make one video out of 4 independent video streams. Even on the UBUNTU phone GPU that works in realtime.

So, you even might build much bigger holograms with new 2m ∅ Samsung OLED displays just by sending your phone display signal over wifi or USB 2/3.

Compare with upcoming #Holus 3D gaming: https://youtu.be/22hp-WBoTTc

Have fun!

New version of imaginario-dev released!
This version brings in the possibility to decide which tags to automatically apply on imported images depending on the source application.

I packaged the wunderground.com site as a webapp using +Oliver Grawert webapp framework. The webapp is a bit slow on a Nexus 4, but hopefully operates nicely on some of the other devices. Features that I find very useful are the weather graph and the radar map. The radar map is a bit lacking via this webapp, but it's decent.

Help us make clear skies for everyone by beta testing the new Weather app and/or by helping us write tests!
The default Weather app for the Ubuntu phone has gone through a major redesign over the last few months! The design has improved to make the gestures that are used more usable. The overall design has been cleaned up. And last, but not least, the app now can give you forecasts for your current ...

Tiny update to Imaginario-dev: one can now see the zoom level when zooming. The bar stays green until the natural size of the image is reached, then it grows yellow (to warn the user that the photo is being overscaled). One can overscale up to 5x.

The next thing I plan to do is automatic image tagging based on import source: it will be possible to configure Imaginario to add application-specific tags on imported images. For instance, one might want to have the tags "camera" and "photo" automatically added to photos imported from the camera app, or "downloaded" when they are coming from the browser.

Once this is done I'll wait a couple of days to test everything, and I'll release all the changes to Imaginario too (the free version, not the development one).

I'm happy to announce that a new version of the Crosswords app is in the store.  If you've tried it before, you'll notice a few new features:

1) It works.  Okay, that's not entirely new, as it used to work.  But then the device images got upgraded and it stopped working.  (One wonders why we specify a framework version if it doesn't protect us from this.)  But a few fixes have counteracted these improvements so that Crosswords works again!

2) New small screen layout.  When I first wrote this app, I though that there was no way to fit all the information and the soft keyboard on the phone screen.  But I've reconsidered and come up with a design that I think works pretty well.  Combined with the pinch-to-zoom action on the grid, this means crosswords is usable on any screen, except perhaps your smartwatch.

3) Importing puzzles.  As I was updating the puzzle lists provided, I had to implement support for the Across Lite .PUZ file format.  A number of constructors make their puzzles available in this format.  Rather than try to list all of them, I decided to implement a puzzle import facility in the app.  In fact there are four ways to do this:
i) Drag-and-drop into the window.  Works great on the desktop; not so much on Ubuntu Touch.
ii) Import via file dialog.  Works great on the desktop and in the browser on Ubuntu Touch.  But, oddly, not in the HTML5 container.  See Launchpad bug #1467937.
iii) Import via the Content Hub.  Crosswords accepts "documents" from other apps (as that seems to be the catch-all for files that don't fit any of the other content types).  Unfortunately, no other apps recognize .PUZ files as documents.  And there's no way for Crosswords to inform the other apps about the existence of .PUZ files.  This strikes me as a serious failing of the Content Hub, especially since I ran into the same problem with Beru.
iv) Shared URLs.  Since none of the other methods work on the devices, Crosswords accepts shared URLs of online crossword puzzles.  To share a link you come across in the browser, long press it and then select "Open link in new tab". A new tab will open, and then an "Open with" dialog appears, which gives you no options. Touch "Cancel" at the bottom to return to the (empty) tab. Open the menu at the top right, select "Share", and then choose "Crosswords" as the destination.  Couldn't be simpler!

There's also one change that you shouldn't notice: Crosswords is no longer using the HTML5 UI Toolkit, and instead is using the Riot Javascript framework.  I've kept some of the Ubuntu CSS, but everything else has been replaced with custom tags developed with Riot.  This has greatly simplified things while giving me much more flexibility in the layout.  (I can talk more about this in the comments, if anyone is interested.)

More information, including links to the app store, a desktop installer, and a web-based preview, are available at http://rschroll.github.io/crosswords/.

+Henrik Ekselius I'm still getting to know Riot, but I'm not sure that it's the best tool for developing a toolkit.  It doesn't have any concept of inheritance and nesting is limited to within a single tag file (at least right now).  You may be able to do something with transclusion or mixins, but I haven't thought that through that much.  That said, if anyone's interested, please get in touch.  I'd be willing to license the relevant bits I have under a more liberal license for this purpose.

+Michael Hall I ran into several problems related to code churn.  We can debate whether each of this should have been protected by frameworks, but the result was that I spent a fair amount of time correcting breakage (and even more not working on the project because I didn't feel like trying to diagnose the breakage).  Off the top of my head:

1) Changes to the toolkit CSS broke my layout (LP #1451937).  I used to reference system resources for CSS, Javascript, and images, since that's how the example project was set up.  These resources are not versioned or connected to a framework, so an update broke my layout.  Whether using system resources is a good idea in general is still up for discussion (as you see on the bug, the HTML5 team still hasn't decided), but I now ship all the resources in my package to avoid these problems in the future.

2) The HTML5 container was broken for quite a while.  The browser and web app container were moved from QtWebKit to Oxide well over a year ago, but the HTML5 container didn't make that transition until November or December last.  During that time, the HTML5 container was frequently unstable and crashy, probably because the QtWebKit component was no longer being maintained.  While I took a perverse pleasure in being able to cause a crash in HTML (!), it was frustrating to have a previously-working application broken on newer images.

3) Old framework / apparmor woes.  After the upgrade to Oxide came through, my app was still crashing on launch.  I had to upgrade the framework from 13.10 to 14.10 and add the "webview" policy group to the apparmor file to get it to run again.  I don't know which was the magic change and I've been unable to reproduce the problem now, but I do know that this caused several hours of hair pulling and teeth gnashing.

A new version of ttrss is out!

ttrss is a native client for the open source, web-based news reader and aggregator tt-rss (https://www.tt-rss.org).
Between yesterday and today I released two new versions, and here's the aggregated list of changes:
- Fix vertical jumping of article pages when they appear on screen (this was my biggest gripe with it!)
- Add margins around the news items
- Add a "mark all as read" action to the feeds
- Allow saving image attachments via the content-hub

A new update for "Match The Color" has been released and is now available in the Ubuntu Store.

I want to thank +Kevin Feyder for the help he gave in redesigning the UI.
Also, the application is now enabled for translations at: https://translations.launchpad.net/match-the-color

Changelog
New game mode: time attack
Share your results through social network/IM
Rebalanced game logic
Support for Ubuntu UserMetrics
New user interface
New app icon

This is still a testing release though. Please let me know your feedback about the game logic, since it's the part that had the biggest update.

NOTE: When you look for the app in the store, you'll see that the application has no icon.
I've encountered some issue while updating the icon in the store, and I hope that will be fix soon.

A new version of Imaginario-dev is out!
What's new:
- Image zooming
- Versioning: support marking two image as being different edits of the same photo
- Detect duplicates when importing
- Speed improvements, use and create thumbnails
- Avoid filename collisions while importing
- Bugfixes!

Imaginario-dev is the development version of Imaginario; it's available in the Ubuntu store for a small fee (contrarily to the stable version, which is free), to encourage me to continue its development.

Just published my third app, called MkPass. It will allow you to derivate a strong password from a memorizable one, using either SHA1 (for portability) or PBKDF2, and then paste it to clipboard. I must admit it will be more useful once paste into wbapps bug will be fixed :-), but anyway:

Looking for translators!
