There is an official Google Analytics SDK for Android. Google provides plenty of documentations and examples on setting things up and getting GA going. A lot of these information are spread across different pages and places so for Android GA new comers or someone who hasn’t used GA for awhile (me), it can be confusing to get data start showing on the Analytics reporting pages.
Here are some quick notes on using (and not using) the JSON configuration file.
A while ago I released Overwatch Player Log on Windows and OSX for recording player entries for when you are playing Overwatch. One thing I have noticed and has always been on the back of the mind is: unless if you have a second computer like a laptop handy, it is a pain in the bottoms to ult-tab out of the game, frantically try to remember what a OW player’s name was and type it down but you get busy again in the game!
Well, fret not! The Android version of the app is now available on the Google Play store for free! It is called Player Log for Overwatch (PLO). For now, it pretty much does the exact same thing like its desktop counter part. However, more features are on their way! I plan to focus most of my effort on the mobile version for now as I don’t myself using the desktop version again anytime soon.
Recently I was working on a new desktop app for my new favorite game Overwatch. I got to the stage where I decided to add application icons to it.
After going through the trouble of creating the icon and adding it into the project, I compiled and had the new icon working on Windows pretty quick. Next, I moved to my Macbook and tested the new icon there as well but for the love of god the new icon would not show! Even after a new qmake, clean and rebuild…
Turns out I had to completely remove the app package itself then do another rebuild and voila! it’s there!
Today I am releasing DBConnect, another simple useful utility alongside with UUIDer. It has been quite a handy tool for myself at work so I’d like to share it. I wished there was something like that when I did my database unit in uni last year!
DBConnect is a simple GUI application that allows users to quickly connect and create(SQLite) different types of databases and run queries on them.
You can check it out and download a copy for Windows over at Infinity Box Studios. MacOS builds are not provided at the moment, but you can easily install Qt and build it yourself.
Source and binary is also available on GitHub. The application was developed using Qt5.3.1, and is required to build the application. Everything’s released under the BSD 3-Clause license at the moment.
