[maemo-users] Asking for developers and user support for a N900 application

Hi all,

since some weeks I'm working to a (very usefull, I think) application.
I really couldn't release any code or ask for support, due to an NDA,
and since my question could have revealed still non public

Now I can ask :)

I'm working on a Python/Qt4 application that can automatically login
to your carrier website (Vodafone, Orange, Simyo, 3HG ecc...), get
your remaining credit, data traffic consumed ecc.... and simply
display it in a GUI.

Why this app? Because opening the browser, logging to the $CARRIER
website, access the customer's area ecc... sometimes can make you wast
lot of time (and bandwidth). My app only grab the necessary data and
display them in a dialog window.

I currently am able to support just two carrier: Italian 3HG and
Spanish Simyo, since I only have those two SIM/account to test.

I'm not here to ask you to give me your user/password of your carrier,
but I would need at least each webpage used in the login process (the
login page, the webpage after login, the page displaying credit
remaining ecc....).

I'll give more details on how to get these information to people who
will be interested to help me.

Why I'm asking for support? Because more carrier I support, more
useful the application can be.

At the moment I haven't thinked about a plugin architecture for my
app, but I could think about it in the future. For the moment I do
prefer  to have raw data/webpage and implement the parsing by myself.

Who want to help me with this application?

p.s: since both Python and Qt4 (in particular PySide bindings) are
very experimental at this stage, I really would like to be able to
test this on a real device, but I haven't :(
I really hope to have more informations as soon as possible about the
developer device program

p.p.s: I'll e able to work more on this application starting from the
next week. At the moment I can only use my EeePC and, belive me, for
people with big hands like me it's simply impossible to code :P next
week I'll be at home (Italy) and I'll grab my new PC  before moving to
Valencia, so I'll able to work without any problem.
