[Juju adventure] Android

I have been playing for Juju for a bit before my nice and long holidays on the Costa Brava!

Back into action and I was thinking that I would be losingmy wordpress mobile app once I deploy my own wordpress instance, no? (please correct me if I am wrong). Would I be better of writting something simple for my own use on Android?

Then it dawned on me. Most phone apps today are mainly a front end to a web/cloud service. In that case, Ubuntu and Juju are the perfect development enviroment for an Android developer.

Think about it. You can write your app using the Android Linux SDK, then you can write your web service and deploy it locally with Juju. You can test that your end to end system works well and then deploy it. You just need to push your app to the android market and “juju deploy” your service into the public cloud.

I was curious, Has anyone tried this? Did it work well for you?

    FWIW, you can access custom wordpress installations with the android app with no problems (I use it like that).

  3. “Add self hosted WordPress blog” should be in your options.

    When deploying your Android apps, may I suggest that you also consider publishing the app and maps via FDroid under a free, open source license?

    From their site (http://f-droid.org):
    “The FDroid Repository is an easily-installable catalogue of FOSS applications for the Android platform. The server contains the details of multiple versions of each application, and the Android client makes it easy to browse, install them onto your device, and keep track of updates.”

    See “Submit applications” here:
