OnscreenClock v0.5.0k and ADBoverEthernet v0.8.6

a few weeks ago, ADBoverEthernet was removed from the Google Play store due to a payments policy violation. As you may know, only Google is allowed to make profit off your app, so you may not provide alternative ways of payment within the app. Since my app only provides Google’s In-App payment and still got removed, apparently it’s also not allowed to even mention other possibilities. I removed the mention of my paypal and link to my donation page on this blog. So everything should be good now. 🙂 I also updated the OnScreenClock app as it shares the donation code with ADBoverEthernet.

It took me a few iterations to get the new apps released as Google forces you to upgrade the target sdk to at least 26 (= Oreo) these days. With this upgrade comes extra limitations on background processes. ADBoverEthernet used a service to launch shell commands. I changed that to use the new WorkManager api.
