New app: Multipost


Available in Android Market

Do you use multiple social network sites and is tired to post the same message on each site time and time?

This app can launch apps for each social network in a batch, so you can just input message one time, then just tap "Send" or "Post" on your favorite social apps.

Note: You need app supporting "share" function for the social network site you use.

search keyword: Facebook, Twitter, Plurk, Google Plus, Google +, Linkedin

The most encouraging update for Android Market ever

These days Android Market has a major update, both in use client and developer console.
I have to say the updates are marvelous and hitting the points.
The promotion space is much better now. I can now put 8 screenshots, linking a video, and have now 4000 characters to describle my app. Well I know no user will read more than 1000 characters, but it's very good for searching and noticing.
Also, the "Recent Changes" is important. When I update an app I always want to know what's new. Forcing users to read Change Note web page is non-sense.
I also like the new Market user client, but you all can see how it's changing, so I won't talk here.
Good job, Google. (and the team from WebOS I guess)

About lock screen widget of Meridian

After trying Lock Screen widgets of like Mixzing and PowerAMP, and lock screen apps like WidgetLocker or so, I choose to make a special lock screen widget of Meridian.
I strongly recommend users to install a lock screen app (WidgetLocker Lockscreen is very nice), then put Meridian's normal widget on it. This way works more flawlessly and beautiful.

Difference between Meridian Pro from Market and PayPal

First of all, buying Meridian Pro from Market or PayPal does not differ in the application features. They are totally identical except the authorizing method. Also, you don't need both of them. One of them is fine.

The differences are:
  • With a Market auth app you need to keep it installed in the phone, and with a PayPal auth key you need to input it into Meridian main app.
  • Market auth app is Google account dependent, where PayPal auth key is device dependent.
  • Thus, if you changed your phone with a PayPal auth key, you need to mail me for a new key.
  • In the other hand, if you changed your Google account for some reason, you need to rebuy Pro if you're using a Market auth app.
  • With price $2.99, PayPal's fee is $0.42 and Market's fee is $0.90. More than twice, but since on PayPal I need to pay effort for device changing request, both are fine for me.
As a user I'll suggest you to buy from Market if you can. It's much convenient.
I have also heard PayPal will join Market's payment, maybe it will be the time I totally shift to Market buying.

Stupid F/C bug in 1.2.2

In Meridian Hermit 1.2.2 there's a major bug, which will make everyone turning data collection off force closes every time.
First of all I want to say I'm not forcing you to enable data collection. If I want to do so I'll just remove the option or doing that secretly.
Okay, so what's the problem? This is the buggy code:

  if (tracker != null) {
    // do tracks...
  }
  tracker.stop();


If user disable data collection, the tracker will be a null pointer. and thus F/C on a NullPointerException.
Yeah, very stupid bug. It of course need to be this:

  if (tracker != null) {
    // do tracks...
    tracker.stop();
  }


I apologize for the bug but all test phones I use was turning collection on :p
You know it's hard to develope and test everything by one man blah blah.
Sorry for the inconvenience again, in addition to tens of mails I got and replied X_X
