I’ve been busy with a new Project lately. It’s an Android App in combination with a Desktop Application, to integrate a Smart-phone in the normal Desktop UI.
I’ve seen “Android Notifier” and “KDE Connect”, both are awesome but don’t work well with Gnome Shell or Ubuntu Unity. There are many Apps out there which already notify you on your Desktop Computer, but most of them are Browser-Extensions which need a Third-party Server (your data is routed over some other website).
So the plan is a new Android App which communicates over the LAN with a Software running on Linux, Windows or Mac. I’m almost finished with the Linux Gnome Shell version and want to release it on Github soon.
After using the Gnome Shell for a while, I kind of missed the Messaging Menu from Ubuntu. I saw an Applet for Cinnamon (a Gnome Shell Fork), which covered the Basics of it: easy access to the Messaging Applications.
Using Ideas from that Applet and other Gnome Extensions, I made little Extension myself which is available on the Gnome Website. For now it just shows your Applications in a Menu, but other Features from the original are already planed.
The Source can be found on GitHub, it’s open-source so feel free to help the Project.
