Small software by you may use for free

Well, I am not a real programmer, but as an amateur I have written some small software during the years. Some may still be working and useful, some may not.
If you want to try them, here they are: you may use them absolutely for free. Of course, you understand you use them at your own risk and under your own responsibility.
Should you like one of them and want to drop me a line or offer me a glass of wine, I will surely appreciate it.

Allegra Brigata [Android]
A very simple Android app to listen to the album L'allegra brigata by the Italian folk-pop band Maló, who were active in the late 1990's.
Maybe today it is more comfortable to listen to the album directly from Virgil Radio.
