Hi!
This is my first real maemo application.
It's a python+qt based application for foursquare.

[Updated 2012-04-23]

For those living on the edge (following extras-devel), you'll have noticed plenty of updates during the last month or so.
For those who aren't here's an update on what changed since my initial release:

Features / Fixed bugs
  • Seaching for nearby venues, list visited venues, or todo venues.
  • Checking-in (duh), and seeing/adding/marking tips.
  • Leaderboard, some basic info on your friends.
  • A brand new button to check-in where your friends are!
  • Non-english characters work now - at least spanish ones to, please report if others don't.
  • I've added a "please wait" screen to most places that were missing it, but there's still some work to do there.
  • Where to post: facebook, twitter, etc
  • Show the last checkin in the main screen (you can see this though the leaderboard in the meantime).

Wishlist
These features are on my list. I'll try to work though this list in-order, but no promises.
  • Make all those buttons that say "TO DO" work. Access a list of places you/your friends are mayor of.
  • "Recent Activity" list, with comment capabilities.

Since I didn't have a decent data-plan when I started programming this, it tends to cache everything possible (while updating data on a background). Whenever you open a list (ie: leaderboard), you'll see the data from last time, while the new data is downloaded and updated in the background.

You can also choose to use AGPS, cell-tower-positioning (since the N900's GPS seems to suck a bit), or use the locations of your last checkin as a reference for searches/etc, whichever is the most convenient.

It's still "under development" and all present features work fine, and pretty well, IMHO.

Feedback if greatly welcome, as are bug reports. Bug reports and enhacement requests can be posted on github.

Just click here to install it!

Also, be sure to update the image cache on your first run, and be sure to do it over wifi. This'll make save huge amounts of times in searches, since category icons don't need to be downloaded on-demand. (They're cached anyway when downloaded on-demand, but you don't want to be waiting for images to download while searching for nearby venues).



For those intereseted, the source is available here. I wouldn't recomend it as a learning example for anyone, there's some pretty bad code there (mixed with not-so-bad-code). I'll rewrite the ugly bits eventually, but I care more about feature I need/want for now.

Could you run, from a terminal
Code:
python /opt/ubersquare/ubersquare_launch.py
and send me the output? If you dont know how to copy it, press ctrl+shift+p to take a screenshot (this works on any maemo app, by the way).

Thanks!

I had forgotten to list some dependencies.
Please, try updating, it've just finished uploading a fixed package.

Cheers!

Yes, that was the issue. "python-xdg" and another package are now listed as dependencies. It takes a while to re-build the package, but upgrading to the latest version will auto-install them for you.
