Title: downPSP v210 (new one v213)
Post by: carlosgs on March 19, 2009, 04:42:58 AM
Nickname: carlosgs
Project name: downPSP
Division: PSP APP
Original enter: Yes
Support motion: No
Old compo winner: Nope

First of all, hello, I'm carlosgs, and this is my first time in the Neoflash spring coding compo :-D
Please, If I am doing something wrong, contact me :-S

Project description:
downPSP is an app that I started in lua, but now I'm making it in C.
The best function of this app is that it's going to be able to download and install a lot of homebrew apps.
It looks for the homebrew database in
Right now it is not possible to download or install homebrew, but in a few weeks, it will.
I'm working in the cookie-based login of that website, I made that in the old lua version, so this time is easier ;-)

In the homebrew downloader, right now you can view the homebrew list (apps, games and emulators), and view a detailed description about each homebrew program.
You can also search in the list by pressing the "triangle" button (The games list
 has more than 800 entries, so you'll probably need it ;-) )
Nevertheless, it has other functions like:
 - Filebrowser with:
      -PNG image viewer. With scrolling for large images.
      -Simple text file viewer. With auto line-breaks :-D
      -You can rename files with the "square" button.
      -Simple searching with the "triangle" button.
      -Detects file type, not only by the extension. For example, if you have an MP3 file without any extension, the program know that it is actually an MP3 file.
 - Self updating through the network ;-)
 - Options menu with:
      -Select wether you want to show the initial splash or not.
      -Show memory stick free space.
      -Restore default config.

This project is right now very initial, I'm looking forward to add add more functions, like:

-In the filebrowser, show other image types, unRar files, run eboots, copy, move and delete files... etc.

-"Check Gmail" function (simple but useful). It would notify about new gmail messages (I'll use the gmail RSS feed ;-) )

-Probably, when I finish the full support, I'll add support for other psp homebrew comunities.

I let you some cool screenshots:
Main menu:

Homebrew list selector (apps, games, emulators):

How to install:

 - X select/view/change (only in the config menu)
 - O back

I have just released the vesion 211
Now you can download things ;-)
It doesn't install things, but it saves the .rar files into the "ms0:/Descargas downPSP/" folder.
You need to have an acount in (because you need to be registered in order to download things :-S)

Also, I have added the language selection in the settings menu :-P

I hope you enjoy this new version :-D

PD: Just connect to the network in downPSP to get the new version ;-)
