TPlayer is "small, quick & easy-to-use" music player
A new music player, TPlayer, has been released by roman deninberg. The Qt-based player is Anyone interested in testing or contributing can find both the application, and its source code, in Extras-testing (<usual legal jargon>).
Wallpaeper manages desktop wallpaper groups on N900
S Dijkstra has released an update to his application, Image Set Maker, big enough to bring with it a new name: Wallpaeper. The application allows users to work with wallpapers (panoramic, in particular) without having to edit .desktop files. The update is available from Extras-devel, the usual boilerplate still applies.
Flashlight-extra gives control over camera lens behaviour
N900 owners who like to use the camera's LEDs for flashlight functionality have typically had difficulty doing so because the camera lens cover launches the camera application when opened. Which makes turning on the flashlight a difficult task. Cuong Tham has come to the rescue with a new application that lets you select what happens when the lens cover is opened. Flashlight-extra is available from Extras-devel, blinding bursts of light are probable, so torch users should take head of the usual warnings and disclaimers.
TwimGo: Web Runtime-based Twitter client
A new Qt WRT-based Twitter client, TwimGo, has been released. Here is a first downloadable alpha release of TwimGo 2.0 for Nokia N900. There were rather positive feedback for the teaser shots so I thought that it’d be best to release this as early as possible to get more feedback for the next releases. The application is available from the developer's website, but requires the installation of Qt WRT from Extras-devel first. As Qt WRT isn't yet stable, users interested in testing it out are recommended to approach it with extra care.
EasyList: a simple task/shopping list app
Willem Liu has announced "EasyList", which is a very simple task/shopping list app. You can enter plain text where every newline results in a new list item. The list item is a checkbox. The list is saved and also which items are checked. With one button click you can also clear all checked items from the list. As the app is in Extras-devel, and under rapid development, care is advised. However, given it's a simple list-checking application, the chances of it eating your dog are low.
Dicer under development
Willem Liu has announced another application, this time an app to simulate those little cubes which make board games so much fun: Ever wanted to play Yahtzee, Warhammer or Dungeons & Dragons but don't have enough dice arround? This app is the solution. I've created a small app which I want to share with all of you. With this app you basically "throw" dice. You're able to add any number of dice with any number of eyes and generate a random outcome for all of them. You can turn on the Shake functionality which allows you to shake your device to generate a random outcome. It's gimmicky, but you might like it. As with EasyList, the package is currently in Extras-devel only, so caveat downloader.
