Unofficial West Suburban Bank Mobile Application has the wrong doc type, and thus displays poorly in a mobile browser. I contacted WSB to have them correct the doc type over two weeks ago, but as of today they have yet to do so. Because of this, i've created an app to make the experience a little better. All the app is, is a customized webview. Below is the code.

Visit here on your android browser to download

--- main activity code below
package com.kpf_software.wsb;

import android.content.DialogInterface;
import android.content.Intent;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.KeyEvent;
import android.view.Menu;
import android.view.MenuItem;
import android.view.Window;
import android.webkit.WebChromeClient;
import android.webkit.WebSettings;
import android.webkit.WebView;
import android.webkit.WebViewClient;

public class wsb extends Activity {
WebView browser;

/** Called when the activity is first created. */
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
getWindow().setFeatureInt( Window.FEATURE_PROGRESS, Window.PROGRESS_VISIBILITY_ON);

String loadUrl = "";
browser = (WebView) findViewById(;
browser.setWebViewClient(new WebViewClient());
WebSettings websettings = browser.getSettings();
// Sets the Chrome Client, and defines the onProgressChanged
// This makes the Progress bar be updated.
final Activity MyActivity = this;
browser.setWebChromeClient(new WebChromeClient() {
public void onProgressChanged(WebView view, int progress)
//Make the bar disappear after URL is loaded, and changes string to Loading...
MyActivity.setProgress(progress * 100); //Make the bar disappear after URL is loaded
// Return the app name after finish loading
if(progress == 100)
public boolean onKeyDown(int keyCode, KeyEvent event) {
// Check if the key event was the BACK key and if there's history
if ((keyCode == KeyEvent.KEYCODE_BACK) && browser.canGoBack()) {
return true;
// If it wasn't the BACK key or there's no web page history, bubble up to the default
// system behavior (probably exit the activity)
return super.onKeyDown(keyCode, event);
public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu)
MenuItem item1 = menu.add("Exit");
// item.setIcon(android.R.drawable.ic_menu_home);
MenuItem item2 = menu.add("About");

return true;
public boolean onOptionsItemSelected(MenuItem item)
if (item.hasSubMenu() == false)
if (item.getTitle().toString().equals("Exit")){
if (item.getTitle().toString().equals("About")){
AlertDialog dialog=new AlertDialog.Builder(wsb.this).create();
dialog.setMessage("WSB\nVersion: 1.0\n\nCreated by KPF-Software. \n \nVisit website for more information.");
new DialogInterface.OnClickListener()
public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int whichButton)
/* Do some stuff */
Intent browserIntent = new Intent("android.intent.action.VIEW", Uri.parse(""));
new DialogInterface.OnClickListener()
public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int whichButton)
/* Do some stuff */
// Consume the selection event.
return true;

Archery Tool ver: 0.3.5

Archery Tool has been updated to Beta version 0.3.5. FOC percent calculator is included, a few more glossary entries have been added, and it has been given a little color. The next release will be about glossary entries, extending current features (Kinetic Energy and FOC history for easier comparison), and polishing it more. It will probably be a few weeks until the next release.

So far the app has been downloaded over 140 times! Thanks to everyone who is trying it out!

Archery Tool ver: 0.2

Archery Tool has been updated to version 0.2

Changes include a paper tuning section, menu icons for hdpi, ldpi, mdpi have been corrected. The home menu icon was missing for hdpi. Fixed some grammatical errors in the glossary.

Next release will include FOC and more glossary entries. After that release, I'll work on making it look better.

So far it's been downloaded over 80 times with 55 active installs, this is doing better than I expected! Thanks to everyone who has downloaded it.

KPF Software Mobile Version

I've used to create a mobile version of the blog. I didn't edit the CSS at all, so it's very plain looking. If I get time, I might try to give it some color.

Archery Tool version 0.2 will be out this afternoon. It includes the paper tuning section. So far there has been over 65 downloads! If downloads continue I will add FOC and then work on making it look better all around.

Archery Tool ver: 0.1.1

Archery tool has been uploaded to the Android market.

Kinetic Energy Calculator and Glossary are fully working. Trying to gauge interest in this type of app and will then develop based on that. FOC, Paper Tuning Tips, and more to come. If there is some interest, I will get graphics done and a better launcher icon.
