  I'm at 0.88203 btc

So I put in for the Google Play developer.

This means that you'll have an app,  even though we were short from the goal. 

 I am asking everyone though please try to make it a total of one BTC ..

You all know that over the course of time that app coupled with real Time RSS feeds of quotes will be worth more to the BTC community than one single BTC

We are 88.2% there!

The reason I did this is because I feel that people will eventually make more coins by knowing the exact spot price

Something like this would be a force multiplier

That's why believe that donations for doing this rather than charging people would be the proper way to make this succeed

If you don't feel like donating you don't have to I just set up a goal and I made 82% of it so far and are still a few more hours left till the end of the weekend

I just sent you the coins I had set aside for jsmithers for placing in my T-shirt bounty contest. I wouldn't have done it if I didn't think the app was far-outRoll Eyes

Added the .02 to push it over the top http://blockchain.info/address/16q2jVoLDpdhGcFaXGronteMb1SRkQVdbg

My suggestion: Make an advertising-supported version with maybe just a ZigGap affiliate code, or get with the guys from btcQuick about a referral fee for click-thrus.

But also make a donation/paid version with NO advertising (I'll be a purchaser)

I need a valid exchange rate source,  USD to EUR ,  in text format like this type output.

http://blockexplorer.com/q/getdifficulty

Notice how output is just a text file with single number.  I need something like that with exchange rate.

it might be a noob question, but I wonder how it get's the actual USD price (mtgox?)? Is it the last trade price? Also, how often does it get updated?

It uses gox and 3 others and averages them.  Making it highly accurate.

Updates real time.

If the total donations from everybody equal one single bitcoin I will turn http://www.ounce.me into an official android app this weekend

To sign up for the android marketplace it cost me $25.  So I made the target one bitcoin so I am sure i am covered.

If you want me to do this just donate whatever you feel like.  It's fine if its a tiny amount.

 I will do it as long as the total donations from everyone equal one coin

Cool app! (and I don't like using the word cool, but this time I'll make an exception)

use "sick" I believe that is the 'in' word now.

Sick app!
I believe the word du jour is "ill".

Next thing you know it'll be "cripple" and then "coma" and then "dead". Tongue

Well Good News people.

I wanted to add the features before pushing it to app (hence the delay) ..  and due to the advice of this thread it now includes Euro to BTC.

http://www.ounce.me

the RSS feed of Euro to BTC

http://feeds.feedburner.com/OuncemeQuotesFullFeed

I always wanted an app that would report to me the price in my local currency. Could you add such a feature if there was no hassle.

I would think to generalize that you don't add currencies and stuff. Just add two text fields and a combo box in the options under an option called "Custom currency". First box would be currency symbol (for me it is SAR), The second would be conversion rate "for me I would set it to 3.75" and the combo box label is "Relative to currency" and I would choose "USD $".

That would really come in handy.

Thank you for your work. You are awesome.

Will take me a while to climb up again, But where is a will, there is a way...

I don't see the need for all these apps when you can just open a bookmark in the web browser ?

I think you're missing the main point of http://www.ounce.me

The app is just .00001% of it...  which by the way is helpful for some people.

The part your missing is here:

RSS (ALL)  http://feeds.feedburner.com/OuncemeQuotesFullFeed

Believe it or not those RSS feeds get used nearly a million times a month .  I just switched to feedburner a few minutes ago because the hit rate was so high it was slowing down the servers.

The RSS feeds are for your bookmark in your browser.    Many sites and apps and widgets use those feeds...    chances are high.. pretty high.. that when you visit a site and see a bitcoin, gold, silver or whatever price there.. it came from ounce.me


EDIT :  I just spent the past 2 hours BTW making those RSS feeds more efficient and better labeled within the feed.  

Someone tell me how to make bitcoins from this... the past few weeks of my life have been mathed up to the wazoo with formulas trying to get everything balanced right.

Due to all the delays, I demand my donation back. Besides, I don't think I will use this silly app. Also, jsmithers has returned from the grave wanting his prize money which I donated to you, and now the exchange rate keeps climbing causing me great financial stress trying to obtain replacement coins. I feel I might kill myself if they're not return.

If you think this post is serious, then you don't know me very well.

LOL!   Trust me I'm still working on it...  I literally have to weed out some app specific bugs... 

Stupid example,  on the site it renders fine in the Android browser,  when I put that in app format it scrolls side to side on some android phones... for no apparent reason.

I am completely trying to get this fixed now,  but in the meanwhile I did modify the rss feeds and cleaned them up because they were getting hammered big time with the Bitcoin price increase.
