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:

FAQs

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 ticalc.org:

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.
