picture frame

As I had an old, unused tablet lying around (mostly because of its terrible touch screen), I decided I could use it as a 'picture frame' widget instead. I decided to write a small android network application which would fetch the current data from a .NET server application. You can see the result below -- it makes use of several different Google APIs, and has come in quite handy.



  • fetches image data from a server. implements a simple graphics protocol
  • interacts with Google Tasks, Google Calendar and Google Weather
