My first use for AndroWish on my phone is to be able to check on data I keep in SQLite databases. I cannot use any of the available Android tools because one of my tables uses a custom collation defined in Tcl.

I will be using this wiki page to publish my code. Currently all it does is show the schema of an attached database file in a Tktable. The next step will involve examining the data in one of its tables.

The code does react to orientation changes via the <Configure> event. Here are screen captures: and , using an SQLite fossil database from a few months ago.

You may test the first published Androwish app on Google Play store named CashierTclTk It has some logical bugs which I might not fix in the near future. I made a Java/Android app instead named it "LebanesePos(Free)". You may find and download the code of CashierTclTk here
