Hey folks, I just wanted to pop in a introduce you to aweMech! This is a simple Android app that I've put together consisting of a fully functional offline Mechlab. It's not the best looking, but I believe I've got all of the major bugs worked out. It can be found in the Google Play Store!

Disclaimer: I am NOT a software developer (this is purely a hobby), so please be patient with any issues that crop up!

aweMech includes mwo.smurfy-net.de integration including the ability to share loadouts via a Smurfy link, opening links to Smurfy loadouts as well as loading your personal Smurfy Mechbay with the API key provided from the site!

I'll start posting updates to this thread, so feel free to follow it and be up to date. That being said, all major features have already been implemented, so there may not be a lot of updates for a while as I go back and apply new knowledge to existing code, update the UI and rework a lot of hastily hacked together stuff.

If you have issues, or would like to suggest or vote on a feature, you can do so here!

I hope you enjoy aweMech and find it useful!!!

Been using it a while. Really good. Especially since you added quirks to it.

I highly recommend it with the new Smurfy integration. UI isn't too bad (it's got very little space to work with, so I accept it's going to have to make compromises), but it's great for checking out mech builds on the go.

How do I add equipment to a mech? I've figured out how to remove it, but I can't seem to add anything?

With a component (such as an arm) selected, open the Items drawer by dragging from the left edge of the screen or tapping the arrow on that side.

O I like what you did. I hold off a bit to donate to stuff like this until I decide I like it, but I am pretty sure you get a few bucks out of me soon. I have wanted this for a long time.

I just wanted to give everyone a quick update on some current issues as well as future updates.

Known Issues:
1) Opening a Smurfy link without aweMech open first takes you to 'Mech Selection
- Workaround: Without closing aweMech, open the link again
2) Tapping a Smurfy Mechbay header causes a crash
- Workaround: Don't tap on the headers! (:
3) Leaving aweMech running in the background for a long time may result in a crash when returning to it
- Workaround: Simply relaunch aweMech

I've had one report of a mysterious crash upon entering the Smurfy API Key. If you encounter anything other that what is mentioned above, please either email me at aweFalafelApps@gmail.com or submit a ticket at https://awefalafelapps.uservoice.com

With phase 2 quirks coming on the 17th, I'll be pushing an update then or the day after with the new quirks and fixes for at least the first 2 issues above.

I'm currently working on redesign and optimization. Things are coming along quite well so far! Thanks again to everyone who's supporting aweMech!

Well folks the Enforcer and Panther are ready for you to build! And like it or not, the new quirks are included as well.

This version includes fixes for ALL known bugs and issues. Therefore if you have issues of ANY kind, *please* take the time to let me know!

What's new:
+ Resistance 'Mechs and latest Quirks
x Fixed a crash when Smurfy Mechbay headers were tapped
x Fixed Smurfy links not loading if **aweMech** isn't open first
x Fixed a crash after **aweMech** had been in the background
x Fixed a crash when stripping a Loadout with no engine
x Removed duplicate Loyalty 'Mechs and removed them from the Champion filter
x AMS will no longer increase the Damage stat

So, what's next? Well a *BIG* thanks to http://mwomercs.com/...2762-smurfynet/ because he has included the ability to save loadouts to your Mechbay. So I'll be working to include that! I am also working on a complete redesign and code optimization, which is going well, but it is a very big undertaking, so it feels like it will take forever (: but it won't

As always if you have ideas or issues please visit http://awefalafelapps.uservoice.com/ and help shape the future of **aweMech**!

Awesome app. I've been using it for weeks. I hated that smurfy did not work on android.
