(and if so, do you still plan to make the source code for the full version available under GPL)?
Michael Hall
@mhall119
The source code will remain GPL unless we're a finalist, then it will be APL
patrickms
@patrickms
But you are planning to charge to download the full version in the play store?
Michael Hall
@mhall119
The free version will have a smaller set of words in the locale pack
Yes, that's the plan
patrickms
@patrickms
Will all the locale packs be available under GPL as well or will some of them be proprietary (unless you are a finalist, I presume)
Michael Hall
@mhall119
Likely all GPL or some appropriate open license
patrickms
@patrickms
OK. Good luck with Play store sales. Will you do Amazon App store as well?
Also, you are adding math activities?
Michael Hall
@mhall119
Yes, working on counting and simple addition games now
Haven't thought abbot the amazon store yet
patrickms
@patrickms
You might as well do Amazon App store as well. I am sure that Phonecia runs on Fire tablets, which is very popular as a low end and kids tablet
Are the math games separate "pop-up" games or integrated into the farming mechanic of Phonecia?
Michael Hall
@mhall119
Popups like the current word matching games

@patrickms
@mhall119 how do you do testing in Africa?
Michael Hall
@mhall119
I haven't, outside of a couple friends there who gave it a try
patrickms
@patrickms
What about kids in the U.S.?
Michael Hall
@mhall119
Through a network of friends with appropriately aged children
patrickms
@patrickms
Lucky you have access. My kids are a bit old (i.e. they are very fluent readers)
Michael Hall
@mhall119
Mine are too

Since I created a new repo for Phoenicia, we have a new Gitter room too. I'll be closing this one sometime soon, so join us over at https://gitter.im/Linguaculturalists/Phoenicia

Good luck Michael.
I plan to disengage in all involvement with Xprize related projects including yours (and mine).
You did a great job with Phonecia, I hope you adapt it to other learning areas.
Michael Hall
@mhall119
Thanks @patrickms
I plan on keeping it open source, if you want to help with that adaptation
But I completely understand the desire to disengage from XPRIZE
patrickms
@patrickms
FYI if you want to move repos, here is the easiest process
Go to your XPRIZE repo
of which you are an admin
rename it if necessary
and transfer ownership to yourself
That's what I did.
I'll keep my assets in github (privately only) and probably backed up somewhere
Michael Hall
@mhall119
When is that announcement expected?
patrickms
@patrickms
End of the month
Michael Hall
@mhall119
I'm not convinced the play store metrics are entirely accurate, going by what I see for Phoenician
But so much of the glexp judging prices wad so opaque I understand your concerns
I'm waiting to see the judge's feedback
patrickms
@patrickms
I don't care what their feedback is
Actually I wasn't so upset to be eliminated.
Michael Hall
@mhall119
Oh cool, what are you doing there?
patrickms
@patrickms
Maps back end
Michael Hall
@mhall119
Have they finished contacting all the teams now?
patrickms
@patrickms
Yes
The semifinalists know who each other are
Michael Hall
@mhall119
Have you tried talking to Annie? She's been the best person there that I've interacted with
patrickms
@patrickms
I don't want to interact with them
Michael Hall
@mhall119
Yeah, I was concerned fruition the beginning that small teams would be treated differently
I could
I understand
