Cute Android: Open Source Android Apps for Developers: Growing-phone-pet (A pet for Android phones that grows and changes based on your interaction)

Description
Growing-phone-pet is an open source Android project which aims to be a pet for Android phones that grows and changes based on your interaction. The as yet unnamed Android pet is a different kind of digital pet. Start out with a little baby and guide him through several stages of life, playing games, making friends, and earning awards along the way. Don’t you dare think this is just be another “drag and drop” pet. No no no, each activity you perform has an associated mini-game, and every action you take will have an effect on the growth of your character and the awards you earn.

Ideas for mini-games

Weights
* Move weights up and down with finger. Certain speed required to benefit.
* Too slow, no benefit.
* Too fast (optional), drop weights, no benefit.
* Show a gauge so user knows exactly how they are doing.

Book
* Fill in words of a story (by multiple choice maybe?).
* Need to use correct type of word: noun, verb, etc..
* Possible intro: “Oh no! Some words in the book you are reading to your pet are illegible. Try to fix it as you go…”

Music
* Tonal matching game like Simon
* Could be presented as a harmonica (could be any other instrument) where you tap the different air holes. Could also open up a free mode where you could just play simple tunes.
