Attached is a demo of the final version, which is now available for purchase in the Samsung Application Store in the UK, France, and Italy.
Hello, fellow Omnia owners!
I always wanted to write some software for my phone, and I've finally got started. I need a few people to test a preliminary version of my snowglobe toy app. The CAB file is attached. You can shake it and play with it, then exit with a tap. This is a stripped-down version that has a single background and probably will only work on the Omnia. I mainly need to know if it works as installed by the CAB file, especially if you have NOT installed the Samsung SDK on your Omnia. It should create a "Snowglobe" shortcut in your Programs list. There will be a full version with better graphics and more backgrounds that will work on other accelerometer-equipped WM phones. Probably it will be in the new Windows Marketplace.
The physics are optimized for upright play. That is, it doesn't react the same to holding it upside-down and shaking as it does to holding it right-side-up and shaking. I found that having it obey "actual" physics just didn't feel natural. There are occasionally some artifacts of the underlying math visible, such as "waves" of snow. I left it like it is, though, because it actually looks kind of neat when it does it.
I have some other things in the works. One is a card game. I like an occasional game of Yukon solitaire, and while there are quite a few solitaire games out there, I was not satisfied with any of them. I wrote my own version with the goal of making it more finger-friendly and more easily playable than what's currently available. It's very close to completion, and I will probably be looking for some testers for that, too. The selected testers will get a free full version when it's released.
Thanks to anyone interested in helping out!
