ChandlerQE for AndroidJuly 14th, 2009 by Heikki Toivonen
The Chandler ecosystem gains a new member: ChandlerQE for Android. Your phone is always with you, so you can quickly send notes to the Chandler Hub, and then use Chandler Desktop or your desktop browser to manage your items.
When you first launch ChandlerQE for Android, it will ask for the Chandler Hub username and password. It will also try to automatically connect to the Hub to fetch your collections every time you change your username or password. The main UI consists of the title field, the content field, the collections list, and the send button. You can refresh your list of collections, and send notes to any of your collections.
This is also an experiment at doing something different in OSAF’s history. Even while OSAF had paid staff, there was ongoing discussion about how to make the foundation self-sustaining. The Apple AppStore and copycats have shown that people are willing to pay small amounts of money for mobile software. I proposed to OSAF that we try this out with ChandlerQE, and OSAF said yes. While ChandlerQE for Android is Open Source like everything else OSAF does, to download the installable package from Android Market or SlideME I am asking for a small fee. I will donate a percentage of the sales to OSAF.
