Green Screen

Turn your android into a greenscreen studio (aka chroma-key effect)

Use any solid colored background (doesn’t have to be green), snap a photo and this will remove the screen color and replace it with a cool background.

– Includes over 50 backgrounds including beautiful landscapes, textures and fun shapes. You can also select any image on your phone to use as a background
– Built in eyedropper to click on part of the photo to set the background to any color (in case you don’t have your own greenscreen…)
– Use the menu button to save the finished image or share to email/facebook/etc
– Best results will be achieved with even colored background and lighting
– Use the threshold button (in the menu) to adjust how much of the background is removed

Getting a bitmap from a view

Getting a bitmap from a view is very easy in Android (as long as it has already been laid out on the screen):

Bitmap bitmap = Bitmap.createBitmap(view.getWidth(), view.getHeight(), Bitmap.Config.ARGB_8888);
Canvas canvas = new Canvas(bitmap);
canvas.drawColor(Color.WHITE);
view.draw(canvas);

Then you can easily save it to the gallery or email/fb/whatever:

File file = new File(Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory().getAbsolutePath() + "/mydirectory/myfilename.png");
FileOutputStream fio = new FileOutputStream(file, false);
bitmap.compress(CompressFormat.PNG, 100, fio);
fio.close();
Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_SEND);
intent.setType("image/png");
intent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_SUBJECT, "my subject");
intent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_STREAM, Uri.fromFile(file));
context.startActivity(Intent.createChooser(intent, context.getString(R.string.intentchooser_share_title)));

Time Motion Study

A time-motion study tool with measurement, result analysis graphs, and export tools.

Time-motion studies are an efficiency technique where the specific steps making up a task are measured individually, to help identify where the most time is being spent and the best opportunities to improve productivity. Motions may be as fine-grained as individual hand movements (lift tool, move tool to desk, lift work piece) or complete tasks (assemble unit, place in container, wrap for shipping) depending on the goals of your study. For more information, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_and_motion_study

Example use cases:
– Check where the most time is spent during product assembly to help design more efficient work areas
– Compare the performance of different workers, tools or methods
– Detail the time spent on tasks to help prepare cost estimates

Features:
– Share graphs via email/facebook/etc and export CSV files to load into Excel
– Define multiple studies with different motion lists
– Create as many tasks/motions as you like in each study
– Easy single tap to switch between different motions during measurement
– Toggle between measuring one motion at a time, or multiple concurrent motions

Instructions:
– Create your study using the menu on the Studies screen
– Tap the study name from the list to get to the measurement screen
– Define your motions using “Edit Motions” from the menu on the measurement screen
– Duplicate, rename or delete a study by pressing and holding the study name from the Studies screen
– To share your results in a CSV file to import into Excel, use “Share” from the measurement screen menu
– To share graphs, pull up the report from Measurements -> Analyze Results -> (report name), and use “Share” from the menu
– Go into system preferences (Studies -> Menu -> Preferences) to toggle between tracking one or multiple motions at a time
– To remove a bad result, pull up the result list (Measurements -> Menu -> View Results) and press and hold the result item
