I posted here:

http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=23938.0

This is an idea I've had for some time now. I know that I can't do exactly what I want right now, but it might be possible to get a basic version done.

iPhone: Simple voice recorder & text memopad.
Windows client: Speech to text for the voice recorder & iPhone sync.
No Mac client proposed initially.

I have NOT investigated this thoroughly, and am not yet committing to this. Not yet anyways.

I will need a graphic designer though, mostly for the iPhone program interface. It must be super-slick. The iPhone is all about presentation.

If anyone is interested, please let me know and I'll look into the nitty-gritty more and see if it is feasible. (I'm on a bit of a tight schedule, but as I'm already doing audio work on the iPhone, this should fit well into my development schedule.)


It's a complete no-go if I can't get someone to do graphic art for the software though. iPhones are all about pretty UIs, and I just can't pull it off on my own. I suck at graphic design. Badly. Worse than badly. My only redeeming quality is that I know that I suck at it.

If anyone thinks they can pull off the super-slick graphic design needed for a successful iPhone app, and wants to help out, please let me know.

Without help there, I won't even bother looking into it further. I need to know that the art is covered before proceeding. I could end up investigating it and finding out that the time commitment is too much for me at the moment as well. Not sure. I basically need to look into iPhone/PC client connections and Speech-to-Text. Those are the 2 areas that could be problematic/time-consuming.

I had similar thoughts about porting one of my apps for OSX. Finally got the art I needed for the dock icon, so I might try it now.

Are/were you going to do the Crazy URL Thing?

I have a kindof similar app that I wrote for myself. It is a custom browser to open a list of URLs quickly. It just opens up tabs from a list of URLs. One of those dumb things that I'll never do anything more with and never release.

Maybe the Crazy URL Thing could be a team effort  Thmbsup

No, it was Instant Boss...the thing I get a lot of requests from Mac users for.

Crazy URL Thing is going to be Windows only. If I ever decided to make that cross-platform, I'd do it as a firefox extension, but right now I am doing it as a desktop application in order to keep it browser agnostic.

It's something I have to do myself...need to master a few skills and not pass the work on to someone else to do it. Don't want to take the easy way out and hold myself back. The stuff I have to master in this project will allow other projects to move forward. (I may have to build a simple RSS reader to figure out what I am doing)

Besides, I don't think Renegade and I speak the same programming language, and if he doesn't already have a Delphi IDE, it would be quite expensive for him (no more free version).
