Home


I created this page so that I may share my Java, Raspberry PI and Linux projects with others. 
I use them privately and in my work as a systems developer at a company named Know IT Norrland in Sundsvall, Sweden.
Have tried to write some documentation to explain usage of the projects.

My English is not the best, hope you understand. And there are probably lots of spelling errors (I wrote this page rather quickly).
If you have questions you can contact me on steelsquid@gmail.com

      This is a template Android app i think is useful when creating new apps.

    • Phone Deploy App
      This app reads an apk file from a url and then ask you to approve the installation (do not think it can be done automatically).
      It also checks periodically if there is a new version to download.
      You may be wondering what on earth this is good for!
      I use it when I develop apps for IOIO (http://www.sparkfun.com/products/10748).
      IOIO is a microcontroller connected to the USB port on an Android phone.
      You are unable to connect IOIO with Android emulator, so I created this app to easily upload and test new versions of my IOIO applications on my phone.
