Android application to support hex crawling

Hi!

I started to write an Android application to help me deal with all of the tables used when doing hex crawling. I would be very happy to get some help in providing the tables in a format that the application can parse and show. I have not spent any effort (yet) on making it nice looking with a correct use of color schemes and fonts so the application has a very clean scandinavian design ;) I use Android Studio for development work and the application is written in Kotlin but the tables are written in a JSON format that does not require and programming experience.

Currently I have done the Coastal lands and the Borderlands tables.

I've asked RiotMinds if it was ok to publish this Android application and they gave me a thumbs up. So if you want to help out please do so.

Link to the project on GitHub https://github.com/ulrikL/RuinMasterTables.

First version available for testing. Please try it out and come with feedback (or better yet, fix things and send me a pull request)

Known limitations:
- There is no handling for change between portrait and landscape (i.e. no scrollbar if a button end up outside of the screen)
- There is no nice icon (it uses Android default)

https://github.com/ulrikL/RuinMasterTab ... es/tag/2.0

Download the APK to your Android phone or tablet and open it.
Since it is not published using Google Play you will have to allow installation from other sources.

A new release done for the application! https://github.com/ulrikL/RuinMasterTab ... es/tag/3.0

* I've added support for monsters after a conversation with RiotMinds.
* Realized I forgot to disable Night mode (it looked horrible!) but now it is off!

Next release scope
- add more monsters
- link the hex crawling tables with the monsters
