Nice, but I'm already happy with my three freeware Android apps  :-*Will you provide a light version for 5$?

Thats the only way to get people to jump ship after all the great freeware, it will be hard to support a new app.   I love homebuddy and Authomation.  I'll never drop this kind of cash on an app that doesn't even have English screen shots.  I cant confirm that English is even supported.   I am, however, looking forward to seeing it in action, and I hope it will deliver.

Not to mention $25 for a Beta version? Even the developer webpage doesn't have an English version.

Zhouse,
It is always great to see new apps - and your looks very nice.

Though, $25 will be a tough sell around here. I could only see spending $25 if the app controlled (without me programming it) ALL my HA/HT (XBMC, Vera, EventGhost, Windows Media Center, JR Media Center, Sickbeard, SABnzbd, etc) in a single shot and did it as well as the individual free apps do... this is highly unlikely to happen.

Right now, I have a collection of very good, very free (no ads), apps that do all of these, separately... which is fine, since it takes only 2 seconds to launch any of them.

I wish you the best with your app.

regards

I know that You dont like the price.... but i must explain something to You.

We hire 3 programist, as the only one Vera reseller in Poland but we have some competition. The competition that dont hire programist, dont spend money on graphics, etc. The app was writen to our clients. We adding it to Vera for free. And this is our advance.

We cant sell it for 5$ for now because we will lose our advance. When we will release new version with new features we can open older one (still we are talking about it). We didnt expect much sell on the market (this is not angry birds ;) ). Why we was put application there... Well... this is additional earnings for programist and graphic. From 25$: 7,5$ gets google, 5$ gets our goverment, 3,1$ get every person that was working on it ;)

Also there was ability to get it for free. There was 10 beta tester licenses (there was info on forum and facebook), and we have 4 left!!

About english version: for now app is in polish and english language.

About english screenshot: please give us some time. We have a lot of work on new version with very cool functions, testing on every android version, testing on diffrent devices, new plugins for vera. In fact we are very overloaded. It is 4AM and im still working :)

By the way.... i was add first video: http://youtu.be/QgTt-yMrFU0 ... sorry... in polish ;)

if you need another Android beta tester I'd be happy to help... I have about 30 devices in Vera and use the Vera Android app several times a day.
