Guide to contributing to Taupunkt / Dew Point for Android
The App is currently also in the Google Play Store, and has been there since 2011. I try to maintain the version there for as long as I have time to do it.
I have stopped development on this app myself, because I think it is quite complete. If someone wants to further contribute I suggest following improvements:
- Translate the included help/documentation of all settings into more languages.
- Improve the expert mode
If you find bugs please post your issues here. This repository here is the right place to do so.
