A few months back, I as a developer would have NEVER predicted the changes to be made.
Given the astonishing rate of improvement, what else can come to this piece?
I have a personal, short-term queue of additional features, but the state of the app fuzzes when considering long-term conditions.
From what I currently am capable of doing, I have thrown together a short list of changes that may come true.
1. More Characters
Yes, I understand that the project is not a game, but the minigame coding fascinates me. Expect to see other P3NC1L staff integrated quite soon.
2. Better Controls
Once again, this focuses on the game. Already I am experimenting with accelerometer orientation sensors. However, it is more likely to receive focused-button controls (sliding image sprites rather than “hopping”).
3. App-To-App Communication
Although unclear on the methods how I will accomplish this, I have plans to enable individual devices to communicate directly. Some considerations include NFC, Bluetooth, and WiFi.
4. App-To-Server Communication
5. Video Tools
P3NC1L is all about videos. We want our audience to take part in the joy. How can this happen? Already, a download link to Android Movie Studio is included, but the file is corrupted and desperately needs to be replaced. Two possibilities exist in crafting videos for users. (1) The link can be fixed, and an activity procedure can verify if the downloaded app installed and launch it. (2) A homemade video editor can be made. The latter option seems difficult, but a more feasible solution. All in all, P3NC1L will do what it can to assist its viewers in experimenting with digital media.
Many more updates are inevitable, although most consist of icon reconfiguration.
Please consider downloading this free app! As an amateur developer, I cannot devote my entire life to this work in progress (I have a life, too, you know!). You can get the app here. Please give it five stars, if you don’t happen to mind.
Thanks! God bless!
