IMPORTANT: Before you start, get early in touch with OpenIntents developers to discuss your concept (which features you would like to discuss in your screencast, which examples you would like to use). If you do not present your concept at an early stage, OpenIntents reserves the right not to accept your final video entry.

    • All screencasts must be based on the latest Android SDK emulator.

Hello Brian,


I've assigned the task to you. Please get in touch with the rest of the Open Intents developers on the mailing list and discuss your screencast ideas before you start working.

I unfortunatly did the video while waiting for the claimrequest to be approved (I was really bored and had nothing else to do). I have uploaded the video I did, but if you don't like it or want me to cover a feature that I missed, I would be happy to remake the video and accomadate any requests.

It's generally good, but when I play it, during the first 6 seconds nothing happens. This is not good user experience. The viewer might think the video is broken and move to another page. Can you please edit those seconds off?

If you created a 3 minute timer first (boiling eggs?) then you would not have to "fast forward" :-)

Peli on December 27 2011 10:34 UTC Video ok

The video looks good.


Could you please add in your description the phrases "OpenIntents" and "Open Intents" somehow, so that one can search for those keywords on YouTube?


Please also add a link to the Market page: https://market.android.com/details?id=org.openintents.countdown 


(additionally to the existing link to the openintents.org homepage)


If possible, please also update the descriptions of your other screencasts accordingly. Thanks!
