So I did it myself. Just like I wanted. When I published it, I called it "Stocktile", but internally "Longhorn" was its name.
So now I'm not going to use Longhorn anymore. The application is already in Google Play and the Amazon Marketplace, but I felt like I wasn't done with it. I really like it and I'd like a better life for it.
So that's why I decided to open source it. Click below to go to my GitHub account and grab it:
Download Stocktile (Longhorn) source code here.
Yup, you can download the code, re-compile it, change it, and do whatever you want with it (well, at least whatever the Apache License version 2 let's you do with it).
To give you a preview of what cool stuff you'll find:
- Drag and drop (for Android 4.0+)
- Search autocomplete
- Talk to search
- Automatic market updates
- Battery optimization techniques (Read more about this here)
- Support all the way up from Android 2.2
- A very nice UI layout
- Gracefully handling device orientations
- And way more stuff...
