Released an Android App to show Famous English Proverbs


I had published this Proverbs Video many years back, and more than 40K People watched this video. But reading Proverbs on Video may not be convenient as everyone will be reading the text at a different speed.



So, I released an Android app to read these Proverbs conveniently. You can freely download it from the Google Play store.

This Proverbs app provides a lot of Famous English Proverbs. We can read them simply by swiping them or by tapping the Right/Left arrow buttons. And, read a Random Proverb by pressing the "Shuffle" button.

It is a very simple App. So, the download Size will be less. And, it won't occupy more space on your device, and it will work offline.


Download it now and if you like this app, add your Rating and Review comments at the Play Store page.

Updated our Business Quotes Android App


Recently I released an Android App for showing Motivational Quotes for Business People.
The aspiring Entrepreneurs can freely download it from play store and share your review comments.

After publishing this App, I have noticed a small issue. When sharing the quotes to social media using the Share button, the app was showing the HTML code of the link. It was not looking good and occupying more space.

I fixed this issue by striping the HTML using below code as suggested here.
public String stripHtml(String html) {
if (android.os.Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= android.os.Build.VERSION_CODES.N) {
return Html.fromHtml(html, Html.FROM_HTML_MODE_LEGACY).toString();
} else {
return Html.fromHtml(html).toString();
}
}


And, Google play console suggested me to set the Android Target API version 28 i-e Android 9 (Pie).
So, I updated the target version and updated the related dependencies.

Released Free Android App for showing Business Motivational Quotes


A few years back, I had published an Android App for showing Motivational Quotes. I am not having much experience with Android App development. So, I developed this App with simple features as an attempt to start learning Android App development.

Surprisingly this App was downloaded by many People and it is getting good review comments and ratings. So, I realized that many people like simple Apps though a lot of apps with many amazing features available in the play store.

It made me to release Bible Quotes App based on the same code. This one is also performing well.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.qualitypointtech.businessquotes

So, recently I decided to publish an App for showing Business Quotes as I thought this App will be useful to tell about our Timesheet Offer to the potential customers easily.

I created this Business Quotes App similar to my previous App except adding a clickable hyperlink to the author name.

Initially, I thought adding clickable hyperlink will be easy. But I had to refer various articles to know the way for doing it. Finally I found this page helpful for completing this.

As suggested in that page, I had to do below things.

First I had to use the HTML entity encoding while specifying the link and text in the String Resource.



And, I had to set the below option in the TextView.

android:linksClickable="true"

Apart from doing these two things, I had to use setMovementMethod before using the setText.

((TextView) findViewById(R.id.your_text_view)).setMovementMethod(LinkMovementMethod.getInstance());
((TextView) findViewById(R.id.your_text_view)).setText(Html.fromHtml(getResources().getString(R.string.string_with_links)));

It is working properly during my testing. But I am not sure if it will work for all devices. Let me (rajamanickam.a@gmail.com) know if you find any issue when using this Business Quotes App.

If everything is going smoothly, I am planning to do the same thing for my previous Motivational Quotes App also.

Replacing MySQL Connection with MySQLi connection in many of our Web Applications


A few months back, I had published a post about updating our Timesheet script to make it work with the latest PHP version by replacing MySQL connection with MySQLi connection.

 Past few days, I was working on implementing this change in our other applications also. Because I was forced to change the PHP version in our servers for updating our websites with the latest WordPress.

I did these MySQL connection changes for our quiz app   and for various apps (e.g Gallery, Facebook Covers, Greetings) of our TheQuotes.Net website.

While doing these changes I tried to improve the page loading performance.
All these changes might have introduced any new error. Let me know if you find any error when going through our websites.

Most of the old php/mysql applications will require this change. So, contact me if you want me to make your ph/mysql application work with the latest php version.  I can do it by charging affordable Hourly charges.

6 Awesome Ways to market your Co-Working Space


This Article is a Guest Post.


In the current world, startups appear one day and disappear the next day. Thus under such circumstance, it's profitable to have coworking spaces. These are one of the best investments that entrepreneurs can make.

If you are an entrepreneur owning a coworking space, you can understand how quickly it can earn you some money. However, marketing them is a challenge which you must take up in order to be a success.

The popularity of coworking spaces is surely on the rise, especially in times like these when startup and freelance economy is looming large. Very often entrepreneurs and startups are stuck in houses, small apartments, coffee shops or a small room to host a meeting.

A fresh break in this regard is offered by the coworking spaces and by the community made of likeminded people who help others grow and develop. Such things are great for startups, small to medium business owners, developers, and such other people. They require a dedicated workstation within the budget and that is exactly what is on the offer.


Coworking places are great if you wish to get away from the distractions at home and work in peace. This also provides you with a  professional setting where you can talk to your clients. But the best part is, such a setup will help you build your confidence since you will be talking to a lot of professionals and like-minded individuals.
