FeenPhone Non-Windows Developer Protocol Guide
.
TIPS FOR DEVELOPERS:
–It will be a lot easier to simply make Clients for Linux, Android and Apple than to make full Server / Clients like our Windows version.
.
–A Linux version will need a complete re-envisioning. This isn’t a “stick it in Wine” candidate like many suggest. Everything will be different in Linux, except Opus, to produce the exact same results. Same with Apple, Android.
.
We want people to use and spread and improve FeenPhone and use it in other technologies. If you make anything using FeenPhone’s source, please post a comment below. We’d love to know about it.
