I tried it out and I like it. It's bare bones but it's easy enough to use that I can easily sneak it in my workflow.

Good job with this!

btw the manula has been taken from Antlabs.
For political correctness, please, if you take other poeples files, tell where you have taken them from.

Im Individual Inventor, and this is my Work. And I want to show, Here in this Great Site, Great Artist and Designers Platform, as a Conceptual Detail Idea Tip, To Present as New Technology Innovation, and see this Post info, in a way as a view of Designers Platform as a Conceptual idea, for a vehicle Performance System (Work use Application), as a power-plant and propulsion system, in a Novel way, (“Designing Futuristic Sci-FI if you want”). New Kind a Power-Plant, and a new kind a Propulsion to. 

(Note; I make this post, as Idea of another different (new one) option, as a power-plant system novel kind. And here Because this concepts, can work to, and different kinds a flows, but I know still a project, And I just want a present in this platform, to show at people were know about atypical engines types, and power-plant and propulsion systems and  rotating machinery).

It will surely be better than the Instructables app. Lol. (No sarcasm intended. The Instructables app is terrible.)

It only pulls projects from 2014 till 2017 for me :D the last one is the 433MHz MQTT thing, I presume it's capped somehow?

And after creating and posting a new log, the app crashed. Also the fire emoji was converted to a question mark.

Rocking a Samsung S6 edge, Android 7.0 - cool stuff though!

Is there a git repository for this? I'd really like to know the secret sauce to integrate photo capture to my Android app!

A solder oven controller, written in Qt so I can debug it on my laptop over serial.

On the phone it uses bluetooth.

It helps to see a picture of the oven on the background so you're using the correct PID settings.

Since it's a phone it would make sense to just snap a picture of a new oven in the app before calibration.

Nice! I've always wanted a Hackaday app and I'm glad to see movement in that direction. I'd love to see a full-fledged app which lets you view and search projects, post comments, edit projects, etc.

Thanks! The current version is purposefully simple to gauge interest and further development.
