Android App For DC Now Users (Update v1.1)

Post#1 » Wed Feb 08, 2023 6:47 am

Wondering how useful would be to get notified when someone is online or playing a specific
game I decided to build an Android app that gathered all the information from DC Now along with
the Dreamcast Live Schedule, a friends list and a favorite games list, all in one place.

Main features :
- Home screen showing same info as DC Now
- (v1.1)Game Schedule from Dreamcast Live (Now on a separate window)
- Touching on any person online a prompt will show up asking to save as a friend
- A list with all available online games, just select one or more to be notified
- Languages available: English, Spanish and Portuguese.


(UPDATE v1.1):
- A filter for show up a specific game on main screen.
- Code improvements
- New icons added.
- TimeZone is set automatically and applied to schedule.

Next feature
- Integrated chat

Very cool! I think there was a version of this before but it was abandoned? Keep us posted.

I wanted something like this for a long time, congratulations on the development of this excellent tool.

The possibility of being notified on Android when someone enters the game I would like to play is innovative!

I also congratulate your technical and programming skills.

The old app actually just showed the contents of the dreamcast.online/now page, as I recall.

This one now has all these features, including the Dreamcast Live schedule, in addition to the potential of the Chat, which will be very incredible if implemented in future versions.

That's awesome, well done! Undeniably I'd appreciate a version for iOS too, for those of us on iPhones! :oops:
