Really like this app, especially being able put shortcuts to scenes on my phone desktop, bummed that development has apparently stalled  :-\

Only for now... been VERY busy lately -- but I did have some time just last weekend (had an extra day too because I called in sick on Monday).  I actually started re-writing the app from scratch for a few reasons:

1. I want to take advantage of Android's newer features (Fragments, ActionBar, etc.)
2. Overcome some limitations with the way I currently do things.  This will hopefully allow for multiple Veras, more flexible UI, etc.
3. Optimizations - persist data locally (this should speed up your shortcuts -- my favorite feature too btw), also speed up the way i parse data while at the same time making it more memory efficient.

Apologies to all for the delay.  Rest assured though, there WILL be an update.  Home Buddy isn't dead.

I love the app so far and have donated twice to the cause! :) It handles everything my small system needs but I am excited to see what other enhancements come in the future!
