*Choice of TTS audio stream
*Choice of speaking when screen or headset is on or off, or while in silent/vibrate mode

Bluetooth - Required to detect whether Bluetooth headset is connected.
Vibrate - Required for Test option while in vibrate mode on Android 4.2.
VN operates through Android's Accessibility service and must be enabled in the Accessibility settings.
Shortcuts are provided in the configuration screen to open the Accessibility and TTS settings.
While VN uses the Accessibility service, it is intended to be a convenience tool and not an accessibility tool.
The Accessibility service will give a warning that VN may be able to collect personal data. This is because Accessibility doesn't know what or how data passing through it is used by enabled apps. VN only uses Accessibility to read notification text which is passed directly to TTS and temporary memory (for the notification log). The TTS engine, outside the control of VN, may also use spoken text for other purposes.
Be aware of the accessibility apps that are enabled when you enable VN! If the behavior of UI changes, it is most likely caused by other accessibility apps that were enabled when VN/Accessibility was turned on. If you believe this is not the case and VN is causing issues for you, please contact me.
ABOUT AUDIO STREAM OPTION:
Behavior of audio streams may vary by device or Android version, so I advise doing your own testing to determine which stream is right for you. The Media stream (default) should be good for most people.
Please email me or submit any issues at https://github.com/pilot51/voicenotify/issues.
I cannot reply to Android error reports unless you leave contact info in the message. Issue reports often require that I ask for more details and/or provide troubleshooting steps.
If necessary, you can sideload any version from http://pilot51.com/apk/voicenotify.

I am not responsible for the notifications that are announced. It is up to you to use the features provided, or not use VN, to prevent unwanted announcing of notifications.
If you want VN silenced on a more flexible schedule than what Quiet Time provides, I would recommend using an app such as Timeriffic. (Not affiliated in any way, just what I use personally)
Includes 3 coins:
US 1 dollar
Canadian 2 dollar
This version is ad-supported. There was an ad-free donate version, but with only 1 download after 4 months it has been removed. When and if Coinflip is updated, the plan is to use in-app donations.
Full changelog and more information is available at the website.
The issue tracker, which can also be used for suggestions, is at http://tracker.pilot51.com. Though it should be noted that Coinflip has been mothballed due to low ratings and most of my other apps doing much better and consuming my time.
It is similar to the classic Lunar Lander game that everyone knows. One difference that sets Lander apart from the rest is that it uses side thrusters to change horizontal velocity and doesn't rotate (though v1.1.0 added that option). In my opinion, the style is easier to learn and more appealing than most Lunar Lander games. It can even be a bit addictive. With each round lasting just a few seconds, you don't need to decide if you have enough time to play it.
-Touchscreen controls with custom scale and opacity
-Customizable keys (physical keyboard/D-Pad)
-Adjustable gravity, fuel, and thrust
-Improvements can be toggled (mainly for nostalgia)
-Gameplay modifications (unlocked for $1)
Market billing service - Used to unlock gameplay modifications with in-app purchase.
Tested in emulators to work great on Android 1.5+ as well as QVGA (tiny) to WXGA (tablet) screens! Also tested extensively on Motorola Droid, T-Mobile G1, and Logitech Revue.
For this port, permission and v1.3 source code has been provided by the original developer, George Moromisato (neurohack.com).
Please rate/comment! Just keep in mind that this is a near exact port of a classic game with some tweaks and modifications. That said, I ask that you don't rate negatively just because you don't like the old style.

PROBLEMS OR SUGGESTIONS:
Please email me or submit the problem or suggestion at http://tracker.pilot51.com. Usually Google Play comments or even Android crash reports don't tell me everything I need to know to fix it and there is no way for me to reply to either to ask for more details.

Version 2 recreates Cannon from the ground up using the AndEngine open source 2D game engine.
The touch screen controls use pressure sensitivity that will likely need adjusted for your device. It is in the Scale preferences screen. Move your finger with a soft touch to adjust angle and power, press harder to fire.
Too slow/boring? Increase the speed multiplier, also in Scale preferences.
Random Targets: Targets are placed randomly on the screen and you try to hit them to gain points. With both Collision and Keep Targets options enabled, as is the default, it becomes a real challenge as old targets become obstacles.
Custom: Create your own target via screen coordinates and change a variety of variables to try hitting it.
Internet & read phone state are required by ads.
Prevent phone from sleeping is requested by AndEngine.

Spaceflight Now contains perhaps the most comprehensive schedule for worldwide launches, while NASA is more up-to-date for their launches.
Touch an item in the list to display the detected launch date/time and the launch clock. The launch clock shows green and red text to indicate accuracy. For example, if it is green from the days to the minutes and red for the seconds, the parsed launch time didn't include seconds and 0 is used.
Alerts are created according to preferences for all launches that have a schedule accuracy to the minute or better. Press the menu button to access preferences. Volume buttons control notification volume while the app is visible.
L-Clock is currently in beta. There are a few important features missing and some issues that will be resolved by v1.0.0, but the basic concept is functional.
As of 2013-01-12, L-Clock is open source under the Apache License, Version 2.0!
An inspiration for L-Clock is the MissionClock app for iOS.
Internet - Needed to download launch data and provide ads.
View network state - Needed to check connectivity before attempting to download data or fetch ads.
Vibrate - Used for alerts (optional).
