My Android Apps

Chauffeurs Name Board (no ads - no permissions)

A simple app that allows Chauffeurs & Taxi drives to display the name of a passenger full screen on an Android phone or tablet.
I am selling it for AU 99c on Google Play.

Version 2 was a significant improvment and required a total rewrite

Flash SMS is the first app that I have created for the Android. I have published the Source Code if you are interested.

I wrote the FLASH SMS app for use by volunteer firefighters in the Ballarat Fire Brigade. It is a partner application to a turnout avaiability app that I have created for our brigade. The turnout avaiability application receives SMS messages from volunteers. The vols send either Yes, No, or Call to the app and it changes a flag next to their name to show if they are avaiable or not. See Below:

The Flash SMS app makes this process much faster.
