Sunday, 22 June, 2008 § Leave a comment

As promised I’m today releasing a beta version of the MediaApp it can be downloaded below.

Just a bit of technical details the media app was built using the touchlib svn and the objects available… it uses the rotatescaleable class… future releases will use the physical class. The source of this project will not be released at the moment, since its too messy rite now. but within the coming weeks i hope to release it. Please take the time to read the Release Notes.txt it will save you some time when adding photos and video content.
