Connect the Dots is a dot-to-dot game for Android devices. You can find it on the Android market. I created it for two purposes: to explore the application design and development in Android, and to give my son something fun to do on my phone. Maybe someday I will add more description here, but for now, just go download it and play it.

The current set of puzzles are designed for HVGA displays such as the G1. They will scale to other sizes, but the aspect ratio may not be maintained.

I have written a blog post sharing some reflections on the development of this application.

This application was created by Paul Gestwicki, with additional puzzles and design by Jessica Gestwicki and QA testing by Alex Gestwicki.

0.2.3 Released

posted Nov 28, 2010, 7:35 PM by Paul Gestwicki

I just released version 0.2.3 (official), which contains a fix for a bug that caused crashing on some hardware. (Not sure /what/ hardware, mind you, but at least the new Android Market gets me stack traces when users send them in. Thanks to the user who sent in the bug report!)

0.2.3 Beta Release --- fix for Droid

posted Apr 17, 2010, 8:40 AM by Paul Gestwicki

This morning, 0.2.3 Beta was released, and it has been confirmed that this fixes the Droid bug. I also rightfully gave credit to my wife on the "About" page, since she created many of the puzzles.

Known bug with latest Motorola Droid update

posted Apr 7, 2010, 6:59 PM by Paul Gestwicki

It has been reported that there's a bug that shows up with the latest Motorola Droid update. The dots themselves are drawn too small. We're aware of the bug, and hopefully we'll find some time to clean that up before too long. I don't have a Droid myself, so if any developers are willing to test out a patched version on one, let me know.

v0.2.1 Beta Release

posted Jan 10, 2010, 5:50 PM by Paul Gestwicki   [ updated Jan 10, 2010, 5:51 PM ]

Two fixes in this bugfix release:
  • The "dots" listing in the puzzle picker is shifted left a bit, so that it's not overwritten by the scrollbar.
  • Found a potential memory leak / resource management problem with sounds, and patched it.

v0.2 Beta Release

posted Jan 10, 2010, 5:24 AM by Paul Gestwicki

I just uploaded 0.2 Beta, which features an improved puzzle picker and two new puzzles by Jess: House and Fish. The picker now shows the number of dots each puzzle contains, and you can sort the puzzles either alphabetically or by size (press MENU for the sort options). Thanks to everyone who's tried it out --- enjoy!

v0.1.1 Beta Release

posted Jan 4, 2010, 1:36 PM by Paul Gestwicki
