Mobile app - Geek tools

This weekend I have finished programming my first mobile application. It actually wasnt the first one I have finished but it was the first one I started.

Basically the idea behind Geek tools was to create a set of useful and fun tools for mobile that only geeks would have a need for.

Features:

Prime number checker: Can check a 64-bit integer for primality.

This may come in use some day. Maybe if you only place bets on horses which have only primes as their number.

Al bhed translator: Al bhed is a language spoken by a race in the game Final Fantasy 10. This tool allows you to convert from Al bhed to English and vice versa. The code that does this is very generic so it could be done to any other language and I am open to suggestions. Eg, Elvish.

Binary / Hex / Octal / Decimal / ASCII convertor: So far this is the ‘killer app’ of the tool set. I havnt seen any other J2ME apps with this capability so it may be the first! It can convert between any of the formats to any other format or base.

Some advice when using this; know the capability of your phone and dont give it something insane to convert to all other formats or it can take a while.

Im very open to suggestions and ideas so please let me know if you want a feature added to Geek tools. Also like all of my phone apps im interested how it works on your phone.

    Your Al Bhed translator and Prime Number Checker work fine on my Nokia E65, but the number converter doesn’t seem to want to work. Sure your code is solid?

    Send me the source if you can’t spot the bug, might be something to do with my phone, or Series 60 smartphones in general. Since my phone has a metric fuckton of RAM free, and a 222mHz processor onboard, I’d say it’s not a system problem, so my guess is an interface issue, though as long as your code conforms to the MIDP standards, it should be good. It’s weird.

    Anyway, if you want me to test further packages for you, email me the .jar file.

    […] Geek Tools redux. Remember when I tested Jason’s Geek Tools suite? And I couldn’t get the number converter to work? […]
