Elections Comes To MPdata+

My UK  Member of Parliament  application MPdata+ has been  updated  with upcoming elections in your area.

A new window opens with the date time and what type of election it is, with buttons for more information which takes you to Who Can I Vote For site, the other button downloads the .ics file.

The data comes from Who Can I Vote For site in a .ics file.

This is my first .ics file conversation so I’m interested in locations that break the new feature.

I have a couple of ideas for future versions, 1 is a keyboard editor, creator and perhaps a shutdown button.

MPdata+ New Feature Added

A new feature has been added to the application to keep tabs on your Member of the UK Parliament MPdata+.

The new feature is a new button entitled MP on the Web which opens up a new window with the following

  • MP’s own website
  • Wikipedia page
  • Twitter page
  • Facebook page

It will only show their web presence if known.

This application requires a working internet connection and wget to work.
Information comes from the excellent They Work For You.

Currency Symbols Comes Currency

My currency application Currency has been updated to version 1.05 with a sprite of the currency symbol if it is known under the Country Info section. Also menu ticks on items selected and on the from and to menus items selected on the other menu is greyed out.

I will add missing currency symbols when I find them or people give me them.
