The results of DonationCoder's NANY 2017 -- New Apps for the New Year -- annual event have just been posted on the official website.

The event, a tradition started in 2007, is a friendly get-together of coders from around the world celebrating the new year with a bunch of program, app and services releases.

All items released as part of the event are provided for free by their developers. This year saw the release of plenty of apps for Android, and a good chunk of Windows desktop programs as well.

You can check out the announcement over on the DonationCoder website for additional information.



  1. DonationCoder Quick Links -- simple app to improve DonationCoder navigation on mobile devices.
  2. Feast Day / Fast Day -- a diet application that suggests a rather interesting cycle. Eat normally for five days, feast on the sixth, and fast on the seventh. This particular diet worked really well for the creator of the application.

  4. MemoList DC -- Create textual notes. Supports categories, widgets, synchronization, and sorting.
  5. CheckList DC -- A checklist app that you can use to create checklists (doh!). Supports the same feature set as MemoList DC.

    Your contact link is missing from the new website design.

    Also, when I refresh your websites, most of the time I lose your formatting. Sometimes clearing the cache will fix the problem but many times it does not (like now). I am on latest FF ESR release.

    Last, you don’t seem to remember my name or email address and I have to type then in whenever I post a comment.

      Jojo, thanks for your report. The contact link is in the footer. I have added the two other issues as a bug report.

    This is very weird Martin. It appears as if you removed your previous mention of the Windows “When Last” app AND my associated comment that noted that there had NOT actually been any updates to this app as you thought there had been. Huh?

    How did this happen? Something is not quite kosher!

    1. Martin Brinkmann said on January 11, 2018 at 5:59 am

      I deleted the new article, and redirected it to the old. It simply did not make sense to have two up that did the same.

      1. Jojo said on January 11, 2018 at 6:34 am

        I don’t understand your reply. Are you saying that there was a v2 article that eliminated mention of the “When Last” app after I noted that it had not been updated? And since the app mention was removed, there was no reason to keep my comment in place?

        If so, I don’t think you should do something like this as it comes across as revisionist after the fact when there really wasn’t anything to hide from in the original article. Everyone makes mistakes.

        But if you are going to do this again (because hey, it’s your blog and you can do what you want), then it would be nice if you put a note at the bottom of the article stating what you revised, just as newspapers do when they correct mistakes.

        You are right, I missed the comment. Have moved it to this article.

    Thanks, DonationCoder has some really useful tools on their site.

    When last is a nice little program but I don’t see any update having been released in the last year. My version is 2.15, released on 12/31/2016. I have auto update on in Google Play and nothing has come down for this app.

    It really could use some updates. For instance you need to manually backup your data or you will lose everything when you rebuild your phone. And the backup script is cryptic, requiring you to choose an existing Android directory. It does not appear that there is any way to create a new directory.

    I use it to remind me to check the oil level and tire pressures on my car.

    The Youtube Watcher looked pretty neat, so I downloaded it and tried to make it run on my machine. Turns out I missed the part of your article that said it was for Linux… The good news is if you have python 3.5, you can install pip3 with “py -m pip install requests”, curses from and modify the file “%AppData%\Local\Programs\Python\Python35-32\Lib\site-packages\youtube_watcher\” somewhere near line 27 replacing it with FILE_DIR = “C\\some\folder”
    It must be very well written to handle running on Windows with little modification!
