Regarding the ongoing tracklogs fun and games:
+ there was a logic bug in recovery from a crash, which I believe is now resolved.
+ @Paul - your device crashing on coming awakening the device whilst recording a tracklog - I could see some logic which might be the cause, so I have updated that. I would be interested to hear your findings.
+ A startup issue which I am addressing on another thread has a fix in this beta.
I have not yet investigated the Info button crashes in GE.
However, we also have the new Statistics interface initial work in place .....
This is a game. We don't want to do too much work, find its not working and loose the development time, yet we have to do enough so you can use your imaginations to fill in the gaps.... so there are plenty of rough edges. Try to look at the big picture for the moment.
First up, none of the data is real. We are simply looking at how we interact with it.
Top left is an icon (which would need replacing).
You can tap on it, to expand it.
You can swipe on it (but currently you have to finger down, move, finger up within the confines of the button) - we can improve that.
You now have 3 data fields. Text isn't quite formatted correctly, but it sizes to the space it has.
Double tap on any item, and you can change it. (I would prefer long press, but currently the library we use doesn't support that - apparently it will early next year.)
None of your settings are remembered between sessions currently.
Swipe down and it goes full screen. (I think it should just be enough for the data, leaving the map showing)
You can now either swipe up to contract it. Or swipe left to close it.
If you swipe left whilst its expanded, the next time you open it, it will still be expanded.
For my liking its coming together - its fluid, and works nicely. Part of me does want to put the button bottom left so I can tap once to see it, tap again to close it. But then I think most of the time I would have the small bar in place anyway, so on balance I think I like it as it is.
I sometimes find swipe down brings in the Android/iOS notifications area.
You can download from:
Google Play: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.anquet.omn2
** this takes a little while to come out. HockeyApp email notifications will come out once the build completes.
Installed from Google without issue.
Looked at the stats interface - it will certainly work for me.
Initiation. Either a tap on the top left icon to open and a tap on the stats to close or swipe on the icon to open and swipe on the stats to close. Currently effectively have to tap to open and swipe to close.
Swipe down for the extra fields is intuitive. Like you I agree that the map should remain displayed if the stats don't cover the whole screen. I presume that we should be able to continue to record tracklogs, move the map etc whilst the extra stats fields are displayed.
Double tap to change the content of a field is OK if you decide to go ahead with the change, If however you decide not to change it is not obvious how you return from the list of fields to the stats display. The Android back button worked - but this is normally used to close OMN. Do you need a cancel button (field) as well as the different field names?
I will try the tracklogs tomorrow.
0.54 installed fine. It is an improvement to last one since I haven’t had start-up issue which I had experienced. I also had a freezing screen on 0.53 whilst running a tracklog (tracklog did survive though) . Early days on this beta so will report back if I get any anomalies… Regarding new interface, this is working fine though I don’t like the loss of screen real-estate: I’d like an option to remove the 3 line icons (or their replacements) and interact with virtual locations; I’d also like control of data field format – how about option of making background transparent?
