Looking for ideas

Postby ptdave20 » Sat Jul 16, 2011 5:58 pm

I am a developer that has experience in OpenGL/ES, SMS, SQL, Live Wallpapers, etc...

Looking for ideas for more applications to develop. Anything is appreciated.

A universal password manager that uses an algorithm based off of your Android ID to CREATE passwords for various websites etc. that you need. It uses a universal password to access the PW-Gen algorithm.

Basically, it's allows you to have 1 password that works on every website, while complying with every single website's different password requirements (because you actually have tons of passwords that are all generated by the algorithm, which your universal PW is merely "unlocking" the algorithm for and then inputting in the background).

This also makes simply knowing your 1 PW useless for hackers on other phones or computers - because they don't know the algorithm, and therefore can't generate the REAL passwords the app uses to log you in.

I appreciate both ideas given. I'll look into the actual coding on the password idea. Not entirely sure a password can be fed into another browser on android off the top of my head.

Thanks, and anymore ideas are appreciated.

The password idea is worth it :D. Unlike contemporary password programs that are used on computers, where you type in your passwords and it "memorizes" them, all cached on a master account, this one erases the need to even generate them yourself (which allows for more security, because your access to all the separate sites is not tied not simply to a few re-used PWs, or a master-PW-attached-to-a-cloud-account, but a master PW attached to the physical phone itself, using a phone-ID-based algorithm to generate the other passwords.

Someone could brute force (or even guess) my master PW, and know my account name. On cloud software, this would be horrible - they'd have access to everything. However, with this system, they'd have 0 access to anything - the account is tied to the phone, so they wouldn't be able to access anything, and they'd know a "useless" password rather than the actual ones generated for site access.

Blundell is right. But the idea stands I think. The likely hood of someone stealing or imaging your phone for the average user it's probably worth the risk.

@Blundell, you say that a device can directly feed into a browser. I can get that and that this would generate the password according to your master password + the unique phone Id + being dependant of what actual page you're trying to get into. But I wouldnt be entirely sure that every page allows a mobile page version to directly feed data into field on a secure webpage. Or is that not true?

But either way, I think it's a good idea!

Yeah I'm not a web expert but you can spoof most pages, trouble is most the time its an individual hack for each one you would have to come up with some design patterns to catch most webpages.

And if you want to be able to market an app like this you dont want to be doing that sort of thing.

but i guess with some trial and error you can see what sort of sites allow direct input from a mobile device?

Dear lord that's a brilliant integration of spam via a barely-on-topic segue.

My compliments

I have an idea, a simple sms spy program. Runs as a service and as sms come in they are saved until the phone is inactive and sends all to a specified number. Or just appends them to a file along with images. I would write it myself but I would not know where to begin. Most of the spy type software is mega expensive. Besides I don't need all that control just simple.
