MakeWeekend @Negeri Sembilan–hosted by USIM

makeweekend.my

MakeWeekend.my is a movement to promote invention or creating something awesome.

We are here to pitch for our simple mobile apps called “Peribahasa Scanner”. It’s an app that utilises the camera facility in your smartphone, scan a part of a Malay literature book, and will recognise any proverb appear in the captured text.

We had awesome time, trying to solve the problem in two days. Unfortunately the key feature (the OCR) is still not doable (yet). We’ll continue next time.

Several good references for the coding part;

Intent intent = new Intent("android.intent.action.MAIN");
intent.setComponent(ComponentName.unflattenFromString("com.google.android.maps.mytracks/com.google.android.apps.mytracks.MyTracks"));
intent.addCategory("android.intent.category.LAUNCHER");
startActivity(intent);
