Developer Release!

Although I am no longer developing new features @Helmar has been working on his own fork of TYOS. He added a Radio app, that allows the user to listen to FM radio, and a volume settings app that allows the user to change the volume, ring tone, and more all within TYOS. He also made some changes to the time and battery settings to suit his own needs. Its still a little buggy, but if you are looking for some new features please try it out. Note that if you are having trouble I may not be able to help you as I did not write the code.

How To Install

sudo rm -rf /home/pi/tyos
