Bitcoin Alert

This is a free, open-source Android application meant to monitor the price of BTC on Mt. Gox, in the form of a widget and price graph. I created it at the very beginning of the month and have found it useful, so time to share!

Features

Current:
  • Displays price data from Mt. Gox (bid,ask,volume,low,high,last trade)
  • Price graph of last 48 hours (landscape and portrait)
  • Manual refresh

Planned by Feb 27th:
  • Receive alerts (phone notification, vibrate, or email) when BTC value goes above or below a certain percent of recent average
  • Ability to customize number of items on axes of price graph
  • Ability to change which items are displayed on widget
  • Change price graph scale by pinching or zooming touch

Planned by March 6th:
  • Place bids and asks on Mt. Gox
  • View Mt.Gox account info

Download

Search "Bitcoin Alert" on the Android Market.

I also know that some people here can't access the market due to country restrictions, so also feel free to download the .apk from http://code.google.com/p/bitcoin-alert/downloads/list

Source code: http://code.google.com/p/bitcoin-alert/

Misc

Since this is free and open source, bitcoin donations are welcome: 1CnrmXBb5eTyTGcG7gr8EUL317YXnnzp9q

If anyone wants to help out with coding, please do so! Send me a PM!

Issues

If the market dosen't like your country, download the .apk file directly from the link I posted above.

If it dosen't work on your phone or looks bugged, please post and we'll try to figure it out.

Thanks!!

Hey, just wanted to say thank you. It's a great app.
I'd like to see more markets/currencies supported in future versions Wink

I missed this thread until it got bumped.  I also want to thank you.  I have used it for a week now and enjoy seeing the price history graph and the widget.

Thanks!

I can't receive any Mt.Gox information anymore.
Have they changed their API ? And will this app ever be compatible again ?
I know it is not used by many people but it is the best bitcoin app in my opinion.

Mt. Gox runs on SSL now, the app should change accordingly.

I have fixed the SSL issues (I think), and have put it on Github.

Repository: https://github.com/johnmaguire2013/bitcoin-alert-plus

Download v1.2: BitcoinAlertPlus-v1.2.apk
QR Code version:


Donations are appreciated as I spent the last 2 hours working on this. I've never played with Android development before, and don't have an Android phone. I did as much testing as I could, but can't guarantee I didn't break something. Please let me know how it goes.

Donations are seriously appreciated: 1HUU7Qnkt5vBsuJgTCBxjxQHKEDffkZnCS

I do plan to work more on this.

Mine refused to install onto a Samsung Intercept

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'

MtGox now has https enabled on all it's pages (including the API) so you would need to update that.

He wrote earlier that he thinks he has switched to https.

MtGox has had some problems with uptime (DDoS) so maybe you could switch to BitcoinCharts?
