When one generates and Android Application, it's source code is compiled inside an APK (which stands for Android Package). XML resource files are also compressed in a binary file format, and the obtained file is no longer a valid XML document.
Many people assume that those file, with the .xml extension, could be opened with Axel, my XML editor / viewer for Android, which unfortunately was not possible.
I've just released a new version of Axel, which now allow you to view and edit such compressed XML files. This feature is still in beta, but it is working quite well for most compressed XML files. If you have any trouble with this feature, please let me know.
Android 4.2 has been released a couple of weeks ago, and brought with it new features. One of them is the ability to add Widgets to the lock screen. The perfect occasion for me to update my Time Circuits Widget
Additionally, you can now resize the widget on your home screen to let it take the whole width of your phone and have it centered on screen.
I just released a new version of my text editor for Android : Ted.
This version, among other things, now lets you set a custom font to display your text. You can now select any TrueType font available on your External / Internal storage.
As you may have guessed from my last post, I'm a big fan of the "Back to the future" trilogy. So I created a new clock widget, based on the time circuits dashboard of the De lorean.
Like always, you can download it from the Google Play Store.
Just a small post for all the Back to the future fans, to present Clock Tower Widget : a clock widget displaying Hill Valley's clock tower.
It gives the time, and can be used as a lightning rod ! You can download it from the Google Play Store.
