Greetings Space People

I have just added 'Evanova', a new Android application for Eve Online on the Market. You can grab it here ->

Evanova Market Link

It runs on Android phones and tablets (tablet version tested on the Motorola Xoom and Asus EEE Transformer only though).

Feedback, comments and suggestions by in-game mail or on Evanova's Blog would be greatly appreciated. Please be kind, all the time I spent writing it, I didn't roam null sec and bubble you!



Note to those who can't import their API keys:

  • Check the validity of your keys! If Evanova keeps on reporting new found keys, chances are those keys are no longer valid.

  • Make sure 'api_keys.txt' contains 1 line per account with userid:key

  • Make sure to UNMOUNT your SD card after you've copied your 'api_keys.txt' file to the 'evanova' folder. In all theory, as you come back to Evanova, keys should be found (if you have not disabled the 'automatically import keys' option.

  • Try closing and re-opening Evanova when in doubt.

  • Note that Assets and Market Orders will only show up if you use a FULL API key. Limited keys don't have access to this information. Next version of Evanova should make it more obvious.



You can help fixing bugs
To better help me fix issues with Evanova, please hit the "Report" button when there is a "force close" or other crash dialog from Evanova. It always helps to figure out the cause, much more than people posting comments such as "It force close on start.". No offense, but more details remove the devil better!
Thanks a lot.

Looks great! All the information I need!!

Big thumbs up and a +5 from me!

However, I am wondering about assets? My character shows no assets. Is that a cache thing or API thing??

Looks like a great little program, alas, I have already found a minor graphical bug. On the help screen when the tablet is rotated from portrait to landscape the buttons in the left fragment bounce around (API keys help, About Evanova, blog link).

Running Honeycomb 3.1 on a Galaxy Tab 10.1

Beyond the minor error I really like the layout of the program. I was thinking of trying my hand at writing a tablet app for android but you beat me to it, and probably did a much better job then I could have. One function I was thinking of adding would be a fitting tool, like an EFT in Android. and of course the mail API.

Edit: One other minor thing, the skill groups still appear, even if you have no skills on that toon. It was a bit confusing at first :)

I think it looks very nice. The assets can be a bit hard to read. Is there a skill planner? I may have missed it. Any way to add mail notifications or a way to read them? The EVE Mail app on the market fails big time.

Nice work! Cool

Thanks to all for that initial feedback.
I'll try to answer some questions and observations. I have myself found a few bugs here and there, that I am fixing at the moment. Noticeably, the Market Orders screen on the tablets version doesn't change from buy to sell orders when you select the action bar buttons and some performance fix on some screens.

Yes, your assets should be there, displayed as a grouped list (they are a little small as Baleful Scarr pointed out). Try reloading your Pilot or close the program and re-open it and let me know if that solves.it.
However, make sure you are using your FULL API Key as your assets and market orders can only be read using those.

If all else fails, please say indicate which device you are using.

Thanks. I will look into it.

I didn't get around that one yet, I hate that bug ;-)


Unfortunately, I didn't go as far as having a skill planner or a fitting tool.
I reckon they would be awesome, but some features would be hard to make pleasant on a small screen. However, I do have wild dreams about a touch interface for fitting my ships!

Regarding the in-game mail feature, this is on my list of "TODO soon" as I would myself have a use for it. I knew there was already an application on the Market so I didn't want to rush it, but I admit I've never tried it. I am looking for suggestions on how to fit it, mostly on small devices.

Thanks again for the feedback. I am working on an update that should be there soon.

Edit: clarified reasons why assets may not show.

installed..

looks great :)

trying to add the api keys...clipboard isnt working(tho more apps have a problem with it so did aura)

i have aura installed but its not taking the api keys from that so now making a key file see if that works

edit

keyfile worked.

first thing i would like added.. option to choose what chars you see, i have one main and 2 useless chars i dont use so a option to not show those would be nice.

is it possible to add more accounts? i have 2 so it would be nice to see the other account as well.

its running good on a HTC wildfire, grapics are awesome :D

keep up the good work..ill pass it on to a corpie that has a android tablet

If you're on a small device, hit the settings button from the Pilots List or the Pilot View screen. There is an option for deleting pilots you don't want to see. Note that they will come back on the next Account reload. For tablets, select a character, then use the Stop sign on the action bar.

Each account you add to the API keys file will show up. The list of pilots has a header you can click which will show your pilots grouped by account rather than a long list of pilots. You can also delete whole accounts from there.

Aura for my Hero and now I got Evanova for my Galaxy Tab
Works great, quick and easy to use.
The interface is just the right size.

Many thanks for developing this and keep up the great work.

There are no rules about donations set in stone yet. That's all I can say ;-). But in all honesty, I would pay the 99$ license anyway if needed be, the time spent on Evanova goes far beyond that price, and the feedback is priceless!

Now, as someone who spent energy, ISK and $ to make Evanova happen, it doesn't mean I support that move.

Edit: clarified opinion on the 99$ subject.

That is great to read. I could only test the Galaxy Tab through an emulator, and was wondering about those. If you could get me a screenshot or two so I can see how Evanova really looks like on those, that would be awesome.

Thanks for the feedback.

Yes I reckon you'd have to limit a ship fitter to a tablet only feature. I guess I it continue to look into it, since you have a very full to do list! I'm only a novice programer so I wouldn't expect much Sad

I wonder if the tablet layout would fit on those or if it would be better to just keep it that way...

The help file says it has been tested with that amount of data. Now, it's only because I don't have access to more accounts and there is no hard limit set by the application. I would not recommend having 20 pilots on a HTC Hero, but Honeycomb tablets should have no problem handling quite a few.

AND the next update has a performance fix that should make it even better in that regard ;-)

Is there anyway for me to obtain the apk file without going to the market?

I know my tablet is capable of running it. Has the same android version as my phone but for some reason i can't get it installed on my tablet.

I'd rather not publish the APK outside the market at the moment, for security and confidentiality reasons. I need to investigate the implications of doing so beforehand.

What tablet do you have, and what is the Android version that is running on? Do you have any report on why it won't install?

The Market on the tablet just doesn't show it. And when i go to the market.android.com website and search for it, it tells me that it's not compatible with my tablet.

Tablet: Superpad
Android version: 2.2 ( which is the same for my phone which does install it. )

Hello all.

I have just pushed an update on the Android Market, with bug fixes from what you all wonderful pilots reported, and made it more obvious if you are using a limited or full API key.

I also added some documentation about not being able to import keys: most of the time, it boils down to unmounting your SD card before going back to Evanova.

In all cases, please report any detail you may have about unsuccesfull attempts on the Evanova release page.

Thank you all for your great feedback, suggestions and donations. This made me update Evanova before I get into Incarna! Inconceivable!*

*does this word means what I think it means?

Since the update I'm now getting a force close anytime I open the program. I've sent a few error reports to help you debug.
