This application may not be ready for prime-time, but I’m putting it out there so that I can get feedback from the community. This application is not yet in the Android Marketplace but it should be soon.
I did follow many of the rules for UI design suggested by MCV, however, this version does not do local/remote detection. It only uses remote servers due to limitations with tools I am using.
So without further a ado, I present the MCV community with its latest remote software, RosalieHA!
[ul][li]Voice Commands for Scenes, Devices, Camera still frames[/li]

I know that its missing some elements from the UI that you might expect after using HomeBuddy for a while. However, what inspired me to create this app was that HomeBuddy (and other iOS apps) take a long time to poll for devices and actually send commands.
With RosalieHA, you can send device or scene commands in less time by clicking on list items or using Android’s voice recognition. Voice commands can be sent in a few different ways. If you have a device named “Table Lamp” for example, speaking “table lamp” will toggle it on or off depending on its current state.
You don’t have to use the voice command feature, however, if you want to rely on it for everything you may end up needing to rename some of your scenes/devices. For instance, I have a scene called “All Off”. Unfortunately no matter how hard I try and change my pitch, the Android Voice Recognition thinks I’m saying “All of” - or sometimes even funnier stuff like “awesome sauce”.
