SignWriting List
February 2, 2014

Hello Thor!
Great to hear from you.

Jake Chasan, the SignWriting APP developer, is no longer on the SignWriting List, but I bet he will answer your question if you write to him - I just forwarded your message to him. His contact information is at the bottom of this email. Maybe you can write to him privately to ask him -

I do not know if Jake does any programming for Android or not - Jake did this Apple version as a gift to us. Our organization does not have funding to pay for APP programming - but if you feel there is support and you and others can create an Android version - that would be wonderful - and I am sure it will be used -

The Signbook App by Lasse Schneider is also a wonderful tool. It would be good to have an Android version of the Signbook.App too - I really enjoyed using the Signbook App on an iPad the other day and I started to realize how useful it was - 

I have been slow to learn how to use iPads and iPhones, because I do not travel and it saved money just to use computers as I was used to - but I am starting to see the value in these little devices - ha!

The Apps for SignWriting are really the tools that triggered my interest ;-)

Val ;-)

Hi all!

It's a long time since I messaged the list, as I am now very busy with work.

I saw the message today about the Apple application for Signwriting 2.0, congrats on having it accepted!

Do we know if anything similar for Android is in the pipeline at all please? I'm sure it would garner some support, and since I also do a little coding I'd be happy to help in development or beta testing.

Good wishes from Cambridge, England
