Gamesome 2.0 development has started

After my statement on Twitter, I’m finally officially announcing Gamesome 2.0.
I’ve decided to completely rewrite the whole app from scratch. I did it for several reasons, but mainly because a huge rewriting of the app is needed in order to support more “evolved” features.

The app will be lighter, faster, better looking and highly customizable.

  • I’ve decided to include less images/files inside Gamesome, the whole .apk file will be only ~5MB large, instead of the former 15MB. The old app had lots of unused files in it that I was keeping just in case I needed to restore something, but in the end it was just a pile of garbage.
  • Since Gamesome 2.0 is written from scratch, I’m trying to write it in a better way than I could imagine two years ago. Code is cleaner, faster and, in case of fix, easier to mantain.
  • Gamesome will try to comply Material Design guidelines more than in the latest versions.
  • You will be able to customize platforms and emulators.
  • Will support Gingerbread
  • Portrait mode is 100% supported, finally!
