I haven’t done much Symbian programming in the past few months, and I haven’t got the time to improve the current freewares that I have (Log Export, MsgExport, and others). But today, I managed to write an application for my wife, a multi counter. My wife likes to knit and crochet, so actually she will use it as a stitch counter (row counter). This application was inspired by StitchMinder for iPhone.
I try to make this application as simple as possible. Press right to increase the current counter, or left to decrease the counter. Press up or down to go to the previous or next counter. You can add a new counter, or delete, and rename existing counters. You can also diretly set the counter value. You can have unlimited counters with this application.
The data for the application are stored as text files in C:\data, which you can access using a file manager, or through the Desktop using Nokia PC Suite. Why do i put the data in a public directory? so you can import/backup your count to PC if you need it. The file count-data.txt contains the counter data (names of the counter and the count), the file count-names.txt contains only the names of the counter, and the file count-current.txt contains the current active counter.
You can download multicounter.sisx from here.
Update: Java/MIDP/J2ME version is also available.
If you visit this page from your mobile phone, just click on the JAD link. Or if you want to install from your PC, just click on the JAR link. Note: for J2ME version, you can not access/backup the counter data. The J2ME version has been tested on Nokia E51, Nokia 7610, Sony Ericsson P990i, and Nokia 9300i. If you have S60 3rd edition, then native version is much better (faster startup and uses less memory).
