    OT: Free Metronome for mobile phones in development - testers wanted

    Howdy!

    Here's a little fun project of mine I come back to every now and then - a J2ME (Java for mobile phones) metronome.

    It started about a year ago when, due to the lack of a decent freeware J2ME metronome, I started writing my own. I soon started making a game instead which was more fun but now it's time to bring this to a finish.. slowly.

    Official site: http://software.aziraphal.com/Metronome.php

    Anybody got a cellphone and two minutes for a test drive?

    There's three different .jar files available - the recommended build is MIDP2. The method of getting the .jar might differ .. see the instructions on the page.

    Three sound types available - .wav samples, tone generator and system sounds.

    Oh, the links:

    AzisMetronomeMidp2.jar - Midp2 build (recommended)
    AzisMetronomeNokia.jar - Nokia build
    AzisMetronome.jar - MIDP1 build (system sounds only)

    And if you prefer surfing with your phone:

    Cheers Matt

    PS: almost forgot, the Bell sample features the GPO triangle. To justify posting in here

    Well, somebody please deliver me from my ignorance and tell me what this particular metronome is, and why anyone would want one for a cell phone?

    I want this... I need this... I will be downloading it shortly to give it a spin!

    Why?

    Now I don't have to carry a metronome with me, now if my cell phone could provide a strobe tuner I'd be all set!

    Well, I wanted a free cellphone ticker for a rehearsal about a year ago and couldn't find it anywhere. So, one thing led to another..
    Perhaps someone could find a use for it when it's done

    Question Re: OT: Free Metronome for mobile phones in development - testers wanted

    Does this work with Windows Mobile 5?

    Don't know about Windows Mobile 5, it's meant for phones that support Java micro edition (J2ME)

    I found an article describing how to emulate J2ME in Wins Mobile 5 using an IBM's interface, if you feel like experimenting...

    I got some optimization ideas the moment I started this thread so the timing should be improved over the next weekend

    Version 0.8 is now available, a sort of public beta.

    Well, I just downloaded it, and can tell you that it does work well under Windows Mobile 5, provided that you have a Java client installed. Thanks so much! Just what I need for a rehearsal today!
