One of the valuable features of Google maps app is GPS logging. It keeps track of where you have been so you can take action if required later. I wanted an open-source, self-hosted version of that.
I have been thinking about running SDR on Android for some time. So I did this week. The setup is useful for “showing” radio waves to kids and adults. It also makes sense to see it when you want to debug wifi channel or other radio issues at home.
I always wanted a simple App that would read the SMS and push it to a web endpoint (also called webhook) sometimes. I wanted such an app to easily back up and process the SMSes in real-time and on the web.
From a browser, I moved to contributing using GPS Logger or OSMAnd. That made my workflow a lot easier, but these apps are not for editing maps but for regular map use. They are okay if you are not mapping frequently or in mass. So editing flow in these apps is not seamless. Hence I continued to explore other options.
Webhooks don’t have to be from a traditional server to a web server. Webhooks can come from any software component which can connect to the internet (or intranet) and send HTTP requests.
I have been reading quite a few books again. When I read EBooks, I prefer DRM free books and a FOSS reader. I use the following apps to read EBooks on my phone. I hope they will be useful to you too.
