Skylight1 is an open source Java mobile projects framework and collection of Android applications and demos. It is affiliated with the NYCJava Java User Group with the revenue from the project's initial applications going to the NYPC Users Group, the parent organization, a 501c3 educational non-profit.
This project is also affiliated with the NYC GDG (Google Developer Group) http://meetup.com/nyc-gdg
News: Current project: NENY (New Eats New York) - launching at NYCBigApps 2013
The group has release Seven Wonders Beta to the Market - also available on Google TV. https://market.android.com/details?id=skylight1.sevenwonders - we have also started on new projects!
This open source project consists of the following sub-projects:
Current Android Applications:
The 'NYC Events' application was a NYC Big App Challenge entry in 2009, thanks to all who voted! http://nycbigapps.com
The official OHNY (Open House New York) Weekend Android Application is available on the market. note: art work used by permission, copyright by http://ohny.org
Live wallpaper application "Fingerprint Live Wallpaper" avail under demos and Market (2.0+ only)
We developed and released (in 1 day, Dec 30-31, 2009) "Toast" as a result of not finding an equivalent of the "Clink-Clink" iPhone app on the Android Market - and just in time for New Years Eve.
We launched our first app, a game based on the framework to the Android Market in late Sept 2009. It's called 'Balance the Beer' and currently is approaching 250K downloads and reaching #31 under casual games and featured briefly on the Google market website. Please give it a good rating on the market ;-)
Current ongoing large projects: the Places and Events (P&E) framework and Seven Wonders (7W), a 3D OpenGL game. To participate, stop by a NYC Java Meetup meeting or visit http://nycjava.net for more info.
