[WIP] TILinkDroid - A link program for Android devices
« on: November 18, 2012, 10:00:55 am »
Because I was bored, I decided to start on an Android app, to allow people to connect their TI calculators to their Android devices using a USB On-The-Go cable.
Currently I am working on support for the TI-84+. Whenever that's finished, I'll get to work on other calculators, like the Nspires and the TI-89Ti.

I just finished writing the calculator recognition code, and the File Manager will launch whenever users plug their TI into their device.


Please ignore the weird static in the last part of the video.

Nice this could be really useful for school where they dont let us plug anything into computers.

Exactly, that's one of the reasons why I'm doing this :D

I hope android TI emulators like wabbitemu or andiegraph will be able to link to real TI calcs in the future using this technique!
If you like my work: why not give me an internet?

It's really not hard to implement, I have no idea why those emulators haven't done that yet..

Nice ! I should port TiLP to iOS sometime.

Really ? In my school's library, they don't care about what you do on the computers. I installed Ubuntu on one of them and hid the GrUB menu. The librarian didn't pay any attention when I put the CD in the drive right under her eyes. :P Plus this gives me a root access and TiLP.

We have thin clients on which the USB ports are disabled

Rewrite entirely, maybe.
Port, well... GPL'ed C (native) code isn't exactly the kind of things that Apple wants ;)

I don't plan to put it on the AppStore ($ 100 a year is way too expensive), but on a Cydia/APT repository (for jailbroken devices). :P I was thinking about porting libti* and rewriting my own GUI. ;)

A very low-end computer which is meant to connect to a server over RDP/VNC/whatever

I see. That's kinda like when computers were huge and enterprises only had one with a bunch of terminals.
My school has dedicated comps with a file server to store stuff (but no one uses this).

I have a paid Developer subscription, if you want it hosted ;)
But I'm afraid it's not gonna be possible on non-jailbroken devices anyway :( (hw access etc.)
