Quite a lot of tidying up in this one.
On loading map definitions for Manage Maps, if you have say a 50k subscription, then all other maps of 50k apart from the demo maps will be dropped. When/if you subscription expires, the maps that were hidden would become available again as they have not been removed from your account.
On turning off the GPS, the stats fields now go blank, rather than showing stale data.
Pause / Stop a tracklog now turns the GPS off. You can turn it back on to centre yourself without resuming the tracklog.
Settings->Main Map Screen, you can now set how many rows of data the Stat bar has in its Standard and Expanded format.
If you double tap on a stats cell on the stats bar, you can now select 'No Data / Clear' to clear a cell.
Rename/Delete only listed sometimes in GM - fixed.
Grid Reference not updating - fixed.
The aggressive scrolling could show white squares - feedback please, I think its much better, but I think I have still seen the issue once. It certainly feels better on my device.
If OMN fails to startup three times in a row, it will give you the option to reset. The reset will clear off the database / settings and you will need an internet connection to get going again for the initial sync. Its not perfect, but it should catch corrupt database or settings files which will mean users won't need to uninstall and loose their map data downloads. If a user can't startup, he can't get to settings->reset, so this hopefully helps with these types of issues.
I think if I can get the list done below we are just about there.... any other showstoppers people are aware of?
What are we working on:
Blue/White screen at startup - we have new code in place, we are now awaiting some graphics from our artist to make the startup a nicer experience.
Some verify issues that I am looking into.
A crash on first use of GPS after installation.
Some feedback on re-starting tracklogs.
User feedback on 'verify pending' on larger maps - its calculating what to do without telling you, and it can take a while.
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.
Thanks Ernie. The reset option will only get fired up on startup. i.e. if you tap the icon, and OMN fails to startup and get to the map, that counts as one failed startup. 3 fails, and on the fourth time you try to startup, it will offer you the reset. The location services crash could be the same one I am tracking on initial installation, but its good to have another view of the bug.
hi on amazon fire have no option to move to SD card
Installed on Asus Zenpad 10. screen looks like attached. Seems as though I still have narrow rows so contents not displayed correctly. Is this something particular to Asus as I've reported it before but no-one else has?
Any timescale on the functionality whereby when you search for say a OS reference, it will mark the spot on the map?
This would be extremely useful for me in what I am using the app for.
Stats bar is working for me now, but if phone display font size is above "normal", text gets clipped at bottom. Be nice to have option of larger boxes especially for location field .
Any chance of option to lock display portrait/landscape ie stop auto rotate ? Dont want to disable rotation on all apps. Nuisance as auto rotate is quite sensitive when walking around trying to follow map.
Impressed by speed of redrawing and zooming maps.
Rob's mail solved my issue, thanks Rob!. Display font size was above default, it was set to largest so the text was being clipped.
I can't reliably get the multiple rows, swipe down doesn't appear to work, double tap sometimes gives the setup screen and sometimes gives the multiple rows. Is it different for Android or has this stopped working?
@Ernie - I can't reproduce your repeatable crash. Out of interest do you need to be downloading a map for that to happen? It just to my mind seems very un-connected code. But from the app, you can bring down Android setting bar, turn on location services, and OMN crashes? Was GPS turned on in OMN? (It shouldn't matter if it was or wasn't, I'm just trying to recreate this.)
@itdave - I take it you have looked in Settings->Data, and clicking on the Target the list is not listing it? Out of interest what is it listing please? I presume you have installed via HockeyApp, as I believe Amazon doesn't support Google Play?
@Dennis /@Rob - we will look into the font sizing issue. Looks like we need to ignore an Android default for the moment. In time it would be nice to have more configurable sizes for data. Portrait/Landscape lock is on our to-do list.
It should be press button bottom left to show/hide Stats bar.
Tap Stats bar once to expand/contract it
Double tap stats bar cell to change its data
@tenbyboy - no timescale for that one currently, but it is on the list - quite a few requests for this one, so I'm hoping it won't be too long.
@David - did the white tiles clear, or they stayed until you nudged the screen? Currently, I don't clear the loading queue, so if you scroll a lot, you will have a long queue of tiles to load, some of which will be off screen, and it will work through them - that is most likely your 5 seconds - I cut this logic a while ago whilst chasing stability - its on my list as a performance improvement. We don't change the GPS settings in Android, we just turn off our listening for position updates / de-register ourselves. I'm not overly concerned on the subscription lapsing issue - people I believe will not move from Premium to Standard. If they drop completely, then they will need OMN Classic. I will cross this bridge in about 6-8 months time.
Re White tiles and aggressive scrolling.
The white tiles remained until I nudged the screen. Thanks for the explanation/notes about my other points.
