Open Source Android Apps for Developers: Android-pcbcr

Apps Description
Android PC_BCR allows you to use your Android mobile device as a barcode scanner peripheral for your PC. Barcodes that you scan with your mobile device are transfered over a WiFi network connection to the PC.

There are several components to the program. On the mobile device, the PC_BCR program uses the ZXing barcode scanner to scan the barcodes. The program then transfers the data over the network to the PC, where it is received by the PC_BCR program on the PC. This program on the PC can function as either a keyboard wedge scanner, where the barcode data will be typed into whatever editable field has focus (as if it were typed out using the keyboard), or it can also send data to a serial port where it can be consumed by another program on the PC. The PC application uses Mono and GTK#. It supports Windows (as supported by Mono) and any Unix that can run xvkbd and Mono.

Open Source Android Apps for Developers: Android-sms

Apps Description
Android-sms is an open source project which aims to create an Android application that automatically backs up SMS messages to Gmail. For using this Android application, user needs to have a Gmail account with IMAP enabled. See the Enabling IMAP Gmail help page to learn how to enable IMAP for Gmail account.

This application allows users to automatically backup SMS messages on their Android device to Gmail. You’ll be able to browse and search your incoming and outgoing messages – neatly put into threads – under the “SMS” label in Gmail. To browse your backed up messages, log into Gmail and click on “SMS” in the labels box, which is located in the left sidebar.

SMS Backup requires the following system permissions:

* Full Internet access

This is required to be able to connect to the Gmail server and send your messages. Note that the connection to the Gmail server is SSL encrypted.

* Prevent phone from sleeping

This will keep your device awake while SMS Backup does its work. Usually, SMS Backup is only active for very short periods and should not draw a lot of your battery.

* Read SMS or MMS, receive SMS

This is required to be able to actually make a listing and send your messages to Gmail.

* Read contact data

This is required to be able to associate every message with its sender or recipient, which will be assigned to the from or to field in Gmail, respectively.
