Hey everyone,

today I proudly present you my first public Android app:

CompAssistant
It's designed as a toolbox for cubing competitions.

Features
Inspection timing
  • Single tap to start timing
  • Displays announcements like "8 seconds"
  • Displays eventual penalties if 15 seconds are exceeded
  • Long-press anywhere to switch to BLD timing mode (1 hour)
  • The user view gets locked while the timer is running
Average calculation w/ WCA ID integration
  • Enter times to calculate your average
  • Enter a desired time in the bottom text field, and the program approximates what your next time has to be
  • Enter your WCA ID at the top to download it onto your device
  • Use the shortcuts to the right of any text field to include DNF, DNS (long-press) or multiple +2 penalties
  • Click on your name when loaded as WCA ID to view all your downloaded IDs
  • Long-press on the red cross next to your name to delete IDs
Regulations
  • Directly view the regulations on your phone (internet access required)
  • Choose between regulations or guidelines

FAQ
  • Will you make an iOS version?
    No.
    I don't especially hate iOS but I hate the fact that you have to own an Apple device (which I don't) in order to code for Apple devices.
  • Can I have a look at the source code?
    Yes. It's written in Java, PM me.
  • There's a bug/error/function not working!
    Severe crashes are reported to me directly via Crashlytics, for anything else: PM me with a reconstruction instruction.
  • y u no Google PlayStore?
    I will buy a developer account and upload the app there based on feedback from you, the community.
    I won't spend 20$ if nobody is interested in my app.
  • I want to translate the app to my language!
    I'll eventually add a CrowdIn page based on resonance here in the forums.
  • Why do you want all these Android app permissions?
    Access network status: Check if an ID can be downloaded. Access Internet: Download the ID.
  • I've got a new feature idea!
    Great :) feel free to PM me for any ideas and/or criticism!
  • My phone shows a "package parsing error" when trying to install the app
    Ensure that you allow installation from unknown (= not signed by Google) sources in your phone's security settings.
    If the problem persists, download the APK again.
    If the problem persists, contact me.

Download
A huge thank you goes to all the beta testers!!! You guys helped me a lot during development ;)

Android 3.0 and above.
Enable "installation from unknown sources" in your phone's security settings! (You can and should disable it again after installation is complete)

Happy cubing,
Gregor

Very cool! The average calculator is the meat of this app, definitely. My biggest wish for this is to allow the user to save a WCA ID so that you don't have to re-enter every time you want to compare an average to your PB.
