A few years have passed since the smash hit AndieGraph hit the Android Market and a lot has happened:

  • Several new versions of Android OS released: Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, Kit Kat, Lollipop
  • Android Market renamed to Google Play Store
  • Official version of AlmostTI released to the Play Store (with a newer, closed source, version of its emulator engine)
  • AndieGraph reached 850k downloads

Open Source

Now that apps like AndieGraph are becoming more of a commodity on the Play Store, I’ve decided to take it open source. It’s available right now, for those interested, on GitHub:


Most users are used to the app at this point, but I still get the occasional question. Here are simple answers to those questions:

The most thorough answer to this question is on

Andie Graph looks through what your phone reports as its External Storage. Name it “TI82.ROM”, “TI85.ROM”, etc. and place it there. Normally, this is your SD card, but YMMV. (Note: some Samsung devices report “Internal Storage” as their External Storage folder).

More technically, Andie Graph searches in the following locations:

private String[] SEARCH_LOCATIONS = { Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory().getAbsolutePath(), “/mnt/sdcard”, “/mnt/sdcard-ext” };

No, because the open-source version of AlmostTI lacks link port emulation.

It appears that the author of the open-source version of AlmostTI has taken updates closed-source. So it’s unlikely.
