    Hi everybody -

    It's summertime, and that means.... lots of time for UO! :)

    Gauging interest here...

    Would any of you be interested in using a mobile version of the Pet Power Calculator?

    I was recently on a trip (where I had to play UO on my laptop instead of my dual-monitor desktop), and I found it very annoying to have to keep switching between the game window and the web browser window to get all of the pet stats into the calculator. (At home, I just keep my browser up on the second monitor). I was thinking it would be easier to keep the game window up and just hit the numbers into my cell phone.

    If this is something you'd find useful, vote Yes! and if people are interested, I'll look into building it. (Heck, I might build it anyway, just because *I* would find it useful! :) That's how the calc got built in the first place!)

    If you'd like to see any other UOCraft taming tools in a mobile version, please leave that in the comments too. Thanks!

    At the very least, I do plan to make an app style version. One suggestion over in UOForums was a way to snap a picture of the lore details with the camera and process the numbers from that - which is an awesome idea, but I'm having a hard time finding mobile OCR engines that are cross-platform and don't cost $10k/year to license. If anybody knows of a mobile OCR engine that works with PhoneGap (other than ABBEY), holler! :)
