This is PactrackDroid, an Android application to keep track of parcels sent with the PostNord, the Swedish and Danish mail service (in Swedish only for now). Originally developed by Joakim "firetech" Tufvegren, but abandoned in 2011. "blunden" made updates to the design of the app to fit Android 4.0+ in 2013, after which the project was un-abandoned and received a major overhaul.
Due to changes in free usage limits of the PostNord API, the project was again abandoned in March of 2018, and is now to be considered dead. The official PostNord Android app does what PactrackDroid did, but better, and also includes some other features.

The API used by PactrackDroid requires an "API key", and the API has a hard limit on number of requests per day and key. Due to this, to avoid abuse, the API key used by the release version of PactrackDroid is not open source.
If you fork the project, you will need to create your own API key at
https://developer.postnord.com and save it, into (for example)
app/src/main/res/values/postnord_apikey.xml, using the following syntax:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <resources xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools" tools:ignore="TypographyDashes"> <string name="postnord_apikey"> xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx </string> </resources>
PactrackDroid was created by Joakim "firetech" Tufvegren in September 2009. After December 2013, the project was maintained by "firetech" and "blunden".
