This application generates secure passwords with double security. You must have secure passwords. Normal wifi passwords can be cracked in less than an hour! Click on the refresh button to create 6 unique randomly generated passwords each with different characteristics. Click on one of the generated passwords and it will be copied to the clipboard! Now that it’s in the clipboard you can paste it into the password form. The passwords are obscured just like when you enter them in password forms (although you can reveal them if you like or paste them into a text field to see them)! The online version is free. You can purchase the mobile version on App World.
This application provides technical information your browser and settings. If you are having trouble with your computer you can go to this page and find out information about it. It shows the resolution, DPI, CPU, if video and audio are enabled and more. This is usually helpful for ActionScript and Flash developers but anyone can use it to find technical information when talking to tech support. It has a button to let you copy and paste that technical information to the clipboard so you can send it in an email or enter it into a web contact form.
ASCII Art Maker
An online application that converts pictures made of pixels into pictures made of alphabet text characters. Click on the photo in the center of the screen or the photo image in the menu along the bottom of the screen and select an image. It will open a dialog to let you choose an image from your computer. It will create an initial conversion to text. That is the first step. You must then adjust the sliders to get the best conversion. Once that is done you can copy it to the text to the clipboard, send it in an email or save it as a text file. You can purchase the mobile version on the Android Market. Note the online version does not support the mobile back button so if you look at the instructions you will have to reload the window to get back.
This app shows moving lines and charts. It looks like it’s processing or analyzing something. It’s not really doing anything. Reminds me of me. :P It’s used for jokes. If someone asks you why something is not working (like their computer) you can pull out your phone, run this app and point it at their computer and pretend it’s running a system diagnostics on it. The information is random and indistinguishable which makes it generic for use. There is no online version. You can purchase the mobile version on the Android Market.
It says “Nooooooooo” when you click on it. It’s good for expressing how you feel about something or annoying people. You can preview the app here. You can download the mobile version on the Android Market.
This is a prototype for a kids game I’m working on. Scroll to the left or right to match the animal. When they match the animal disappears and you can match the next one. Artists and entrepreneurs contact me if you’d like to help. Note: I do not own the images in the game. They belong to their respective copyright holders. http://www.flexcapacitor.com/apps/animalmashup/
