This is a nice cool application. For the Titanic, it would be cool, if all phones on the ship are Wifi or bluetooth synced and can flash SOS synchronously.
Have the Morse signal output on your vibrator, and it could tell you the time in your pocket.
Have the signal output by sound or vibrator, and you could help blind people with short notifications that they don't want everybody else in the room to understand.
And of course decode the flashes recorded by video, mic, or accelerometer into text and control every Android application by Morse code
Some of this could be more easily possible, if applications shared a standard way of exposing and receiving text from views, so that all applications could be connected to a Morse Encoder/Decoder, but also Braille reader or text-to-speech screen reader. This would be one of the goals of OpenIntents ( http://code.google.com/p/openintents/wiki/Ideas
). If you are interested, join us to help. We look for good programmers like you are.
(I had posted about the possibility to connect arbitrary Android applications to Morse code at this other discussion thread
