Countdown app showing the remaining time in journalist Paul Miller's self-imposed exile from the internet. See http://www.theverge.com/2012/5/8/3007525/paul-miller-offline for more details.

Major features include:

-Being entirely Free Software under GPLv3 and copyleft-next; contribute or fork at https://github.com/keithzg/paulmillerisoffline

After reading http://www.theverge.com/2013/2/24/4026142/paul-miller-offline-app I thought to myself "hey, it can't be too hard to create an Android app." Some hacked-together code examples later and I had some text outputting the countdown time. "Okay cool," I now thought to myself, "it can't be too hard to publish this to Google Play then." The registration fee of $25 and a bit of documentation skimming later and I'm typing these words that you're reading!

Figured I should publish it on Google Play and get a feel for how all that works, though, so here it is anyways! If, unlike me, you *are* good at programming for Android, feel free to contribute or fork at https://github.com/keithzg/paulmillerisoffline . The contributors beyond myself so far have been:

-Espian(dev) - overhauled my original ugly app to be significantly less so, and otherwise changed a lot for the better.
-Genicus - Added sync to the time kept on his website http://pauldown.genicus.be/ which was the genesis of all this.
-Andrew Rockefeller - Did the design for the iOS app, and graciously allowed the assets to be used by all
-FausticSun - Added a DashClock extension
-Sarriel - Wrote his own app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sarriel.paul from which the widget in *this* app is entirely sourced.

Whats new

    New in v1.6:
    -Widget from Sarriel's app
    New in v1.5:
    -Thanks to FausticSun, now sports a snazzy DashClock extension! I personally hadn't heard of DashClock before, but it looks snazzy and open source: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.nurik.roman.dashclock

Much better now, keep those updates coming! A cool animation once the countdown finishes would be a nice addition.

Dave Black-n-green

Charles Clout

Always improving Good to see this moving on.

Jason Grajzl

Stupendous I'd really like to see this make it to the editors choice page.

Renaud Lepage

Near feature-complete Needs a donate button.

Seth Hollen

It's a miracle This app has changed my life! It also cured my gout.

Peter GT

Good info I've always wanted to know and now, I guess I do! I suppose this app is just as useful as the 'Is it August' app, so informative as it tells you when it is and more importantly when it is not August. Worth getting if you really need to know!

Ray Foss

Wow Most pointless app ever

Paige Takahashi

Don't care about Paul Miller Sorry, Paul, you're app is kinda dumb. And at almost a megabyte for a simple clock, pretty huge besides. While this looks like a nice experimental project, it really shouldn't be on the store in such an excessive format. That isn't to say I won't go and download the source code to check this project out. Two stars for open sourcing it, I'll make it five stars if the source is particularly useful.

Ryan Hollon

Amazing This is the best app I have ever used. It must really suck for all the users who do not have the internet and cannot download the awesome app.

Rob Purle

Does what it says on the tin... Nice first foray into android dev! Can you show the number of weeks as well?! Then I can count the vergecasts until he walks amongst again... ;-)

Jeremy Brown

Design? Really wish it looked as good as the iPhone app

Reinier Cruz

Don't get it Wtf is this!?
