The cheap phablet I use in the car is running android 6.0 so I'm safe for a bit thenTL;DR: Update released, please let me know if you see anything weird happening Oh, and as always, Premium Members can get it free by messaging me.
Hey folks, just want to mention that after far too long I've managed to get an update to the app released. It's mainly to fix a couple of bugs and add a couple of new things (don't get too excited over there). You may find it's already updated itself.
- Select 12 or 24 hour clock display, instead of it using the device setting
- Fixed bugs in altitude and average speed
- The Elapsed Time display can be reset by long-pressing it (tap the clock to show it)
- When screen taps are turned off in Settings, long-press the screen for the Menu (too many people locking themselves out)
- Better compatibility with Android 'Oreo' and 'Pie', bye bye < 'Ice Cream Sandwich'
It's been very painful getting this update out (and the free version I updated a while ago) because of rules Google have put in place, which I can understand as it all helps to improve the security the Android ecosystem. Its meant me having to move from one development environment to Google's own, Android Studio. I've had to create the apps from scratch as such, adding in all the code, assets, libraries etc whilst having to replace some code that's no longer available in the Google libraries I now have to target. It's such a faff and has meant from this version onwards devices with Android <4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) are no longer supported.
As well as all of this, and the day job, i've had my head down learning to develop iOS apps, which I'm really enjoying. It won't be long before I start in anger to create an iOS version (well, as close to the functionality as Apple will allow..so highly likely there will be no floating window). But don't hold your breath iFolks, I've got a looong way to go!
while you're waiting for the code @Tony66 you'll find the info in post 1 of this thread And it works great tooHi Mr chops don't no what this is but love gadgets on my phone and am premium member so can I get a code please
Glad you like it Chris. TBH I'm not sure what makes it start automatically, mine used to but doesn't now for some reason. I have a feeling it's because the head unit remembers which apps were running at shutdown, but the window is actually a system notification. Hard to explain, especially when I still don't fully understand it!Seriously grate app. My head unit seems to have an odd bug though, if I run it in full screen mode then it comes on when I turn in the car, even if it hasn't been driven for days, but if I run it in minimised mode (which I usually do) then I have to start it every time.
Going to mess about with head unit and see if I can find a fix.
It really is a great app, gets used every day.Glad you like it Chris. TBH I'm not sure what makes it start automatically, mine used to but doesn't now for some reason.
