I am working on an IRC client for Ubuntu, got the core functionality working, it can connect to one network right now, and i still need to workaround an IDE issue to load the plugin.

Happy new year everybody! I'm greeting you with another version of Imaginario (dev)! :-)

This is a bugfix release, which fixes a couple of important regressions:
- Fix filtering by location
- Use HERE plugin for maps, if available (works around broken MapQuest backend)

After a few days, I plan to make these fixes available to the free version as well.

Note: Imaginario is available in the Ubuntu store totally free of charge. The development version (imaginario-dev) is also on the store, but it's sold for a symbolic amount of money, which stimulates me to keep the development going.

The third post in my series about making Persian keyboard layout for Ubuntu touch. Enjoy!
The Persian alphabet is based on the Arabic script, although the two languages are linguistically very different. The alphabet has 33 main letters (including hamza) and a dozen of diacritics (short vowels) and punctuation mar...

Thank you! The license for Android keyboard is compatible. However, the keyboard uses the default font of the system. I don't know who controls the default font and pre-installed fonts. I mean, the font on the keyboard is not controlled by me.
Also, thank you for offering to send the fonts. I have the fonts you are talking about. There is no need yo send them to me.

I am going to make Persian keyboard layout for the Ubuntu phone. And it means a lot of work if I want to do it right.
Ubuntu touch does not have a Persian keyboard layout (as of December 2016). I thought it would be a valuable contribution to the Ubuntu project if I could make one. I had previously designed and implemented a soft keyboard la...

In my spare time I've been playing around a lot with various neural network frameworks, most recently I've been looking at Kaldi (http://kaldi-asr.org/) for speech recognition. Last night I hacked together a quick proof-of-concept demo integrating the most recent ASpIRE Kaldi model (http://kaldi-asr.org/models.html) with the Ubuntu on-screen keyboard, allowing you to do continuous dictation into all Qt and GTK apps.

I should stress that this is entirely unofficial, it's just a bit of hacking I've been doing in my spare time and is nowhere near production ready yet. It's likely to be far too processor intensive for phones (until some start being made with CUDA facilities...), the English language model takes up around 400mb and it'd be a massive undertaking to train models for all the languages we'd want to support.

That said, once we've sorted out the input method interface for snaps (which is one of my next 'official' tasks), I intend to make a little stand-alone version of this that can be used on desktop systems. The demo here is running purely on my laptop's CPU with no CUDA acceleration, so it should provide usable results for desktop use-cases :)

Talaan v2.00 released! :)
 
Talaan v.2.00 is finally released! after almost 4 months of development. 1.90 was rejected from the store so due to frustration I decided to just go straight to 2.0 :P

Changelog:
* Many UI changes
* Many bug fixes
* Convergence features like 3 column mode and hover actions
* Improved Bottom edge controls with back button
* New keyboard shortcuts
* Category color assignments
* New navigation panel
* Sort feature in the items page
* and a lot more.... (see full changelog in uAppExplorer or Ubuntu Store scope)

Known Issues:
* Some bugs especially when switching between layouts
* Probable memory problem
* Long startup time (I'll try to greatly improve this in the next release)
* I sometimes get crashes and I'm not sure if it's because of using WorkScript or no but if the crashes is too frequent I might try removing WorkerScripts and see but of course the experience will be sacrificed..

Many thanks to those that helped me and those that are interested to help. Special thanks to +Michał Prędotka for the tests and inputs. :)
The apps isn't perfect but I'm satisfied with my work and crazy ideas I implemented.

Now, I guess I'll be in maintenance mode for this app. Only critical bugs might be fixed in the next releases. I plan to reboot my other app and greatly reduce my time developing apps next year. But thank you all for the support. I really appreciate it. I feel like a true developer (although professionally I'm a developer but it is boring :D)


Note for the video:
Sorry for the bad quality. I tried to record using mirscreencast but I can't make it to work properly. The video was recorded in Ubuntu desktop with Unity 7. The video may not be the same on real devices. I actually think it looks and works better on real devices. The video was really good in my mind but stayed in my mind :D

Haven't posted here in a while so here are some screenshot of HeiloGraph. Both on the phone/tablet and the web app I'm working on to make sharing a bit easier. We're upto 600 some odd pictures on the service. I would love to see more and get feed back and such.

I'm also going to start pushing beta versions out for my patreon supporter so that the versions that go to the store proper are less buggy. Check it out www.patreon.com/vagueentertainment

Hmm, I prefer the Notes app since it gives me easy access to the Evernote account. I found it a good place to store text while copying / pasting. Surely I could use it more once I am more into the app, as the layout is really easy and straightforward. Might actually use it as my daily driver and sync to Notes once the tect is ready. Good job! Like it!

As you probably know already, there will be no new phones running Ubuntu in a near future. Because of that I decided to make all my Ubuntu apps free. I wasn't earning much anyway. So thanks to all who decided to buy them and those who supported me via PayPal.

Podbird is now 2 years old! To celebrate we've released version 0.8 to the click store! This release brings a number of major improvements including:

* Queue support - It's now possible to add multiple podcasts to a queue so that they play one after another.

* Full download manager integration - Downloads will now continue when Podbird is closed and you'll be able to track their status in the system transfer indicator. This also includes a number of bug fixes to download handling.

* Downloads tab - The episodes page now includes an extra tab showing all your downloaded episodes in one place. This tab also shows a summary of any downloads in progress or queued.

* Visual improvements - We've updated Podbird to use Ubuntu Components 1.3 and made a number of UI enhancements.

* WiFi only setting - It's now possible to tell Podbird to only automatically download episodes when you have a WiFi connection.

* Update podcast artwork - You can now get Podbird to update all the artwork it has cached for your podcasts from the settings page.

This release was made possible thanks to the hard work of +Nekhelesh Ramananthan, +Kevin Feyder and +Mike Sheldon, plus the awesome Ubuntu translation team.

+Kevin Feyder I mean the little white handle that you drag in order to change position. It looks great in the black theme, but the lack of a strong border, bevel, or shadow in the lighter theme is irritating.

The iOS one[1] is pretty bad too, but at least they have a shadow. The Android one[2] is great and easy to see because it matches the bold color of the track progress.

This is more Canonical's problem than anything, imo. You did a great job with the tools you were given.

My second post on keyboard layout development for Ubuntu touch.
Or, how to mess with a perfectly working keyboard. Where is the Q, by the way? 😋 Before making any new layout, I should first get the relevant source code and see if I can compile the package as it is, and to install the com...

Finally, I can successfully mess with the English keyboard layout :P (by getting source code of the ubuntu-keyboard package and changing/ compiling/ installing my modified version). BTW, everything is happening inside the phone. No cross-compiling! And all thanks to the nice help from +Mike Sheldon.

Next up, I am going to make a nice Persian layout for Ubuntu touch. If you miss your favorite language from the list of available keyboard layouts, please let me know.

For the few who care, I've just updated the cinema scope, now it should work as before (no more crossed images). I also included some additional translations and commits from other people on github. If you have improvements or bugs to report go to the github page: https://github.com/dslul/cinema-scope/issues
