Please dont be angry but I have 2 app requests.
Hello I didnt really see anywhere to post this so I made my own thread. Anyway I was wondering if anyone had any plans to make a Ghostbusters:TVG pke meter app like the one on the iPhone. Also, if anyone was willing to make the motion tracker from Aliens, in landscape mode for that one. My buddy manage to put the pke one one my Pre but Evo is where Im at now so hoping someone can help with these. Let me know and thanks in advance!

Solodarkprince: The problem with the apps that you are requesting is that they lack usefulness. A Ghostbusters:TVG pke meter app would have a limited audience. Those in the ghost removal business already have highly specialized equipment to detect and remove ghosts. Such equipment has expensive sensors which are unavailable on phone handsets. Thus, such a meter would not be very useful.
As for the motion tracker from Aliens, I would imagine there are would be community of amateur alien trackers who might want to be able to track aliens from their phones, at least for personal safety. Such a phone app would offer this kind of convenience. I wonder whether most Android handsets have the array of sensors to motion track aliens. This is beyond my expertise. I know that I would appreciate the safety of having an alien motion tracker on me at all times. Please let me know if you can find anyone to fulfill this request.
Lol its not like they would really be able to track anything but the 2 of them would look real cool on the phone. Heck after going through the entire app catalog since I got this phone last week there are quite a few ' why do I need this ' type of apps! I'm sure you know what the movie Aliens tracker screen looked like imagine messing with people or showing off by punching that up on you phone for them to Ohh an ahh at.

You do realize, of course, that those iPhone apps don't really DO what they claim to do.BROKE MY WRIST AND TYPING ONE-HANDED! Please forgive all typos.
PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. Otherwise, it's like calling your doctor and saying "My head hurts." Your doctor can't treat you unless he knows whether you have a headache or a concussion, and we can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they occurred.
Give a person an answer, and you've solved one problem. Teach a person to search, and you have helped them solve problems forever.

I am sure an Aliens-esque tracker that linked into Latitude/foursquare/gowalla would be EPIC
Exactly. And for all the other GBfans who leave iPhone to join us will be grateful for the pke app being ported. There is a video of it on YouTube. They are just some cool gimmicks to make people ooh and ahh. Hell I downloaded that zombie app that works with the Google maps my cousin whom also got the Evo and I goof off with that one all the time. It's just fun stuff to have. I wish I could find the guy that managed to put the pke on my pre but he went to California so no help there.
Or in the case of the pke meter, those who have played the game know the color scheme of it so it could work like this: blue color could be used to detect Bluetooth signals and depending on how close they are it would raise or lower, could be fun while camping or something using that to find friends with Bluetooth enabled phones and what not. Red could detect WiFi signal strength which will prob spike when by a Starbucks lol. And the green could be used to find a in phone set location similar to all those where is my car type apps in which phone saves location you parked and you follow map back bit in this case you follow meter reading. Just a thought guys could be fun.
