I wanted to brush up my Android dev skills so I put together a little app for viewing Glimesh streams. It was meant to just be a little throwaway prototype but it was fun to use and work on so I cleaned it up a bit. At this point I’m interested in sharing it out with the community.
This is completely separate than the official flutter-based cross-platform app being developed at GitHub - Glimesh/glimesh_app: Extremely early, completely un-testable Glimesh Mobile App. That creates some issues which make me hesitate to take the plunge of publishing what I’ve done on the Google Play Store so others can use it.
My main question is about use of the Glimesh name, logo, and other branding. The app is ready to publish, but I do not want to use any branding without approval and don’t want to create confusion in the future when the flutter-based app is published. (In fact once the flutter app is published and reaches feature parity I’ll consider pulling this app from the store to avoid confusion)
This leaves me in a lurch though. I’d like to share what I’ve done and would like the app to drive increased interest and support of glimesh.tv. For that reason I’d like permission to use some amount of branding like the logo, some help coming up with an app name that would be suitable, and suggestions for any other text/links I should add to the app to credit and support Glimesh.
So my ask is who can give approval to use Glimesh branding, what amount of branding can (and should) I use, and if this gets published should I be promote it in Discord etc or is that no beuno.
Currently the best idea for an app name is “GlimDroid”. Or maybe “Glim - the unofficial Glimesh.tv app”. Names are hard! Especially on Android where only the first eight or so characters of the app name are shown on the home screen.
