Introducing Evanova.

Traquenard.Labs is proud to present the upcoming Evanova for Eve Online mobile application. Evanova allows you to track Eve Online, Pilot and Corporation information on an Android mobile phone or tablet.


Before the long speech, here's some introductory screenshots (names, portrait and ISK are fictive of course!).

All Pilots at a glance


Knowing your skills, or what you don't know
Tablets get a better view...

Note: above pictures don't display actual data and portraits.

Requirements

Evanova supports Android 2.1 and later versions, including Android Honeycomb 3.0.x. It should also run on older Android versions but hasn't been tested on those platforms since Android 2.3 has become the de-facto version for current devices.
Tested devices
  • HTC Hero Android 2.1.x
  • Google Nexus One Android 2.3.x
  • Motoral XOOM with Android 3.0.1 and 3.1 (as reported by Chadwill)
  • Asus EEE Pad Transformer with Android 3.1

F.A.Q

  • What exactly does it do (or does not do)?
    Evanova allows you to view many aspects of the pilots for which you have the API keys. You can view your training queues, assets or markets orders in a glance. You can also view information about the corporations your pilots are in. More corporation management is planned in further versions as Evanova would like to be a one-stop-shop for your Eve Online info while on the move.

    Evanova also includes a server status view so you will always know when Tranquility is down!
  • How is it different from other existing Android applications for Eve Online?
    Evanova brings you the simplicity of use of IPhone-like applications while leveraging the full capabilities of your Android phone or tablet, bringing the best of both worlds. So far, no application specifically aimed at Android tablets exist on the market.
  • Yet another application that wants my API keys? No way!
    Evanova is built with your account security as a priority. It does not and will never collect any information from you or your device besides the API keys you provide it. Your private data is protected as best as the Android platform can provide in application data protection. Evanova will also never show your API keys or allow you to access them through the interface.

    Of course, little can be done if your phone is lost or stolen...
  • It really looks like an IPhone application I know...
    The graphic design of Evanova was indeed inspired by the great-looking Capsuleer IPhone Application which is very regretfully no longer maintained.
    Since Capsuleer was not ported to Android phones, inspiration was taken from where great work was done...
  • Where/When/How is it available?
    Evanova will be available with limited features on the Android Market for free for small devices and tablets. Further development and enhancements may come with a possible/yet-to-be-decided small fee (business licensing with CCP is being clarified as time of writing, so it is too early to decide). The application will be available "when it is ready". It is in its later stage of development and still requires polishing and bug squashing. Additional features will appear in further versions.
    Seriously, it's a lot of work for a single pilot!
  • Who are you?
    Traquenard Labs. is a group of close and tight friends with a strong interest in making things. The author of this program (that would be the author of this post so far) works in the software industry, roams Eve Online around <Undisclosed Solar System> when not exploring more technological magic. AMA.


Fly safer with Evanova!

    Thanks for the reports. And yes, as you have already noticed, I'm lacking in the testing department so any testing help would be great. However I am not yet sure how I can manage this. But definitely, your sharp eyes are very useful!
