    Default Christmas Light Show Finder Android App Released

    Hi All

    This post is to announce the release of the Christmas Light Show Finder Android App.

    This app will allow a user to find and obtain turn by turn directions to nearby Christmas (or Halloween) Light shows.

    It will present the user with a list of nearby shows (sorted by distance) and then present the user with a preview image of your show. (Hummm wouldn't video be nice!)

    This app is absolutely free across the board and there is absolutely no dependency on Light Control software, so anyone using any software can add thier show to this app. You do not need to own a Droid to add your show to the app.

    For more information see this page.

    To add your show to this app follow the instructions on this page.

    To get this app, search the marketplace for the "Christmas Light Show Finder" App or scan the attached QR code.

    Enjoy.

    So after I released this last night, the app had 51 downloads in less than half an hours. Looks like this one may be popular.

    Hadn't thought about that yet, but its a good idea. If I get a chance I will look into it. What I really need to do is design a front end for people who want to add thier show. So this can all get automated. Somehow I think I am out of time this year.

    UPDATE:
    Well now that its mentioned I feel I must get the show details into the App.

    So what info would be good to include, i am thinking:

    1. Your Address
    2. Name of Your Show.
    3. A picture of your show (320h x 480w).
    4. Lat Long of your show
    (Get this from google maps, zoom into your house, right click and select “Whats Here”, Copy the string that populates the search bar exactly as it appears.)
    5. Description:
    6. Show Start Date:
    7. Show End Data:
    8. Show Start Time:
    9. Show End Time:
    10. Radio Station:
    11. Charity:
    12. Your Website:

    Am I missing anything?

    Per Request I have added a description field to the list.
    Due to space limitations it must be limited to 70 characters.

    For Example: 23000 Light with 110 Channels Sequenced to 5 Holiday Classics
