    OOTP Mobile Companion for Android

    Cross-posting from the OOTP boards in case you rarely go there...

    I'm proud to announce that something I have been working on for a while is now officially available. It's essentially a mobile-friendly interface for OOTP leagues, based largely on the layouts in MLB's app.

    It uses the CSV (and, optionally, the HTML) generated by the game, and you get output that looks like this:



    What you need is to have the CSV and HTML hosted somewhere on the internet. If you're in an online league that uses OOTP Online Utilities, you probably already have that, you just need to get the following paths from your commissioner. Or for solo leagues you can upload your own to whatever web hosting you have access to.

    1. CSV - wherever the CSV gets uploaded, usually something like this http://yourleague.com/csv
    2. HTML - wherever the "news/html" folder lives. So if your league's HTML is at http://yourleague.com/reports/news/html/index.html all you need is http://yourleague.com/reports.

    Hopefully that makes sense. Once you provide that information, the app will download the CSV files and import them into an internal database in the app.

    The app is compatible with Android 4.4 and up, and works with the CSV output from OOTP16 and newer.

    Ah, crap. I see exactly what the problem is but I won't be able to fix it until this evening. :/ Thanks for the heads-up, I've pulled the app until I can publish the fix.

    That's amazing.
    Being smart, don't always make you popular.

    Such ingratitude, after all the times I saved your life.

    This is incredible, eriq. I am super busy this week, but I will set up all of our leagues here with this (i.e. get csv folders set up and instructions to commishes) as soon as I possibly can.

    This may show my ignorance of the app-developing landscape, but is there any chance this will ever be ported to iOS?

    Probably not by me, since you can't really develop for iOS without a Mac.

    Oh, and the 1.0.1 update is now live, so it should actually open now.

    This is so dope. I can't wait to use it for the OTBL leagues.
    I understand that and fully understand that and I think we had a previous President who did not understand that but I understand that and we have spoken about this before.

    Please note this post was made by the 2012 NFL Losers Pool Champion.
