Nope. Unless you want to buy Shatra a Mac.


Fair enough.

Brilliant!! I have noticed that the program shuts down if I try to minimize the window (Windows 7 x64). Not a complaint at all, but if you are into bug-fixing you might take a peek. Android App works on my HTC Sensation 4G as well.

It's doesn't quit, it just goes into your hidden icon panel ;)


Just downloaded, seems to work great, thanks!

Sorry I've been MIA, the second semester of law school they try to kill you right from the beginning, they don't give you those few precious weeks where you can do all of your reading and still have time to watch Family Guy (or do some programming) like they do the first semester. Did it start working again?

Thank you so much for creating this program. It's working seamlessly for me.

Actually, I don't know if you are still making updates on the program or not, but I did not see Willamette University on the list.

I'd like to still be working on updates, but it's difficult while I'm in law school. I at least had some free time first semester, not so much this semester. It would be a lot easier if the updater I use didn't cause mass problems, I need to create my own. If you could PM the link to the tracker though, that would be great, I've been keeping a list of ones people have mentioned are having problems and ones that people would like to be added.

Georgetown I know about, they've changed their link since I wrote the program. I tried to update it in the Android market, but for some reason it didn't actually do anything and I haven't had a chance to try and figure out why. American I have no idea about, I'll look into it. Thanks for letting me know.

It's fixed in the desktop version if you have 2.1, just not the Android version.

American works fine for me. They are very slow in updating statuses though.

George Mason is strange. When I click on the button to the right of the arrow, it shows up Mason's status checker fine in its own page. But nothing happens when I click on the arrow itself. This causes problems when it automatically downloads all my applications because it gets stuck trying to load George Mason until I cancel it.

George Mason made some changes to the app that I didn't know were possible, so the program isn't finding the standard fields it looks for. I'll fix it whenever I get the chance to update.

Any shot I can see the source code?? I really just want to understand how this authentication stuff works, and seeing how you scrape w/ beautifulsoup (I can see it in the binary) would be awesome.

I used the mechanize module in Python, I'll send you that section of the code when I get the chance. The Android version uses XMLHttpRequest in JavaScript.

Shatra, I thought the reason it didn't do anything was because you forgot to bump the version number? Maybe I'm confusing it with another app.

Right, so I tested it with the new version number with my test copy, and it supposedly thinks it updated but it didn't actually update the database (which was the only thing I had changed). To get around it, I renamed the database, but then had it delete the old one, but occasionally that causes problems. I'd like it to just overwrite the old database rather than have to create a new one and delete the old one every time, but maybe there isn't another way to do it.

Thanks, this is awesome.

I think it will actually make things worse though, since now it is so easy to check on status updates, I will be doing it so much more often than I would have otherwise.

You'll need to make one that automatically does status updates every 5 minutes to put my mind at ease, but that would probably just DDoS every law school in the country :lol:

Has anyone else tried using the app for Santa Clara? I tried putting my log-in details and it says Application access error. My log-in and pw are correct since I can access it directly through the website on my computer. Help!?

works fine for me, though it indicates that I have been in committee for a 5 weeks.
