Post by Johne »

After a long period I finally did more improvements and published the app on Google Play.

The final version is way different from the last build 1.1 with chat implemented, new features for filter and add games on favorite lists.

Main features:
- Home screen showing same info as DC Now
- Game Schedule, DC Live, DC Talk and Metrics gather by Scrivani are on side menu
- 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
- Built in chat
- Notification on status bar for friends online and games of your choice being played
- A filter to show up a specific game played and capture an awesome screenshot 8-)
- Languages available: English, Spanish and Portuguese.

Next features
- Voice call Integrated on chat screen

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:
