Okay, I’m one of the beta1.5 n00bs, so please cut me just a bit of slack. :)

Since I’m coming in after the first quarter of the game is already over, I haven’t been here to know where all the special info stashes are. However realizing this is also Beta (yet way better than other betas I’ve seen), what would be helpful is to have a simple map of what modules use what interfaces, and what features they have.

As an example the accelerometer uses the IMotionSubject interface, registers for motion events. Here is the problem, I’m use to an accelerometer telling me how much motion has occurred, was it a forward/backward, twist left/right..etc.. Think iPhone motion sensor. However it is sounding like this module detect motion. Also cool, but I’ve not found any description of what a module does, the values it provides, and where the message are to pull for.

Also the API shows the buglab APIs, but I’m missing any PhoneME javadoc. I can pull it from java.net, however I would like to know which classes/methods were ported over….I’m hoping a full API but I’ve learned in the ME world you seldom get what you would want. ;)

Now to everyone that has build the bug sdk, or any of the tutorials / sample apps….. Kudos!!!!!! Wow this is sweet!!!

Hey Shawn – welcome aboard! It is great to have you in beta. I saw your comments and help about SDK documentation – appreciate the input and enthusiasm.

I’m Matt, doing HR/hiring/community/etc stuff at Bug. Thus rather than holding any technical keys or secrets from the Bug Labs HQ, I’m merely popping my head in to check things out and try to learn a thing or two.

I will, however, rattle the cages to see if there is some helpful info about the modules interfaces to make more visible.

Nice to meet you & have fun!

Hey Shawn – hope you are still having a fun time with beta and exploring the Bug possibilities. I’m imagining the latest SDK release has addressed your documentation concerns/observations. Give us a shout if you still see something we’ve missed! Thanks.
