10:18 <aaronpk> wb, loqi
10:18 <aaronpk> BigRedPimp: welcome! You around?
10:18 <BigRedPimp> yep :)
10:19 <aaronpk> Hi! I got word you're up for helping out with the Android version!
10:19 <BigRedPimp> for sure
10:19 <aaronpk> that's fantastic!
10:20 <aaronpk> Have you looked at our github project yet? http://github.com/geoloqi/android-client
10:20 <BigRedPimp> yeah. pulled it down the other day. looks like it needs some love.
10:20 <aaronpk> yep! haha
10:20 <Loqi> awesome
10:21 <aaronpk> The biggest issue is that the HTTP posts happens in the same thread as the UI updates, so the interface chokes while uploading data to the server
10:23 <BigRedPimp> that's a common problem. I'm sure there's some stuff I can do to fix that.
10:23 <aaronpk> here is the "contol" screen of the iphone version: http://geoloqi.org/iPhone_App#Control_.28.40jtbandes.29
10:24 <aaronpk> We've got three sliders to adjust the behavior of the app
10:24 <aaronpk> The one that's relevant to this is the "rate limit" or "sending interval", which determines how often to upload the data to the server
10:26 <aaronpk> My thought is the android app should be modified to write location updates to a local database, and a separate thread on a timer set by that slider would periodically flush the internal queue and send that up to the server
10:32 <Loqi> [[Template:Stub]] N http://geoloqi.org/index.php?oldid=364&rcid=365 * Aaronpk * (+189) created "stub" template
10:32 <BigRedPimp> a background service may help with some of that too. I'll give some things a try on my end a little later.
10:33 <aaronpk> ok, great. That's probably the #1 thing keeping the app from being usable right now.
10:33 <BigRedPimp> do I need any API keys or anything to make this work?
10:34 <aaronpk> Yea, I'll send you an email with API key and server info.
10:35 <BigRedPimp> awesome, thanks.

16:04 <brennannovak> Having a hard time finding an iPhone dev?
16:07 <aaronpk> no
16:07 <aaronpk> we started getting emails asking if we're available
16:08 <aaronpk> so I made a new canned response
16:13 <brennannovak> Ahhh nice! hehe.
16:18 <caseorganic> me too
16:23 <brennannovak> isn't that amazing... neither of you offer doing iPhone apps as a service!
16:24 <brennannovak> you don't have ad banners saying 'Hire me to build your app'
16:32 <caseorganic> lol.
16:32 <caseorganic> but there is iphone mentioned with our names
16:33 <caseorganic> my friend who does iphone apps doesn't advert either
16:34 <caseorganic> his inbox is full of requests
16:37 <aaronpk> it's like whenever you're looking for work you can't get it, and if you're not looking, it comes from all over
16:38 <aaronpk> I hear the same goes for loans
16:43 <caseorganic> haha
16:43 <caseorganic> nice
16:43 <Loqi> hehe
17:14 <brennannovak> haha, yes loans are most certainly that way!
17:15 <caseorganic> caseorganic gives Loqi a loan.
17:15 <Loqi> Loqi cuts the loan.
17:27 <aaronpk> and gives half back to caseorganic
18:03 <caseorganic> caseorganic noms the loan.
