Locus Map (4+) / Locus Map - cloud/sync server
« on: September 08, 2020, 13:06:05 »
It's almost 9 months since we started the work on a cloud/sync solution (since Jan 2020).

And today, we are in a moment that all internal tests were successful and the first public test is possible. Locus Map team currently consists of seven people, but still, a lot of corner cases may not be covered. Because of this, any public tests are more than welcome.

Important: use on own risk!

Important: make a full backup of your database!! This version modifies the database upon start and also may cause a data loss in case of any serious problem in client-server communication.

Version: Google Drive

Privacy: we do not yet have complete "privacy policy" document. Anyway, be aware that based on GDPR regulations, we are trying to work with data as securely as possible. We never share, re-sell etc. any data, never. It's against our deep conviction (I personally guarantee). Once Locus Map 4 will be officially published, all uploaded data on the server (not on your device!) will be deleted.

Usage:
- by default, sync (synchronization between client-server) is disabled
- the best start-point is currently over Data Manager -> in the toolbar is the "Sync" button (will be improved later)
- after the first full sync is done, automatic-sync is enabled. After any change in the database, the sync will be done automatically (with 30 seconds delay). This may be disabled in sync-settings (to work fully manually if needed).

Reporting problems
As usually, best is reproduction of problem on my own device. This means:
- a sharing your original database backup + steps to reproduce problem
- or precise description that may lead to this problem
- or if the app crash, creating a bug report by well-known method here

Known missing functionality & bugs
- automatic notification on other users devices to download new changes

Web route planner & manager of own points/tracks is in preparation (the second part of sync-system). ETA for the Beta test of this part is currently 2-3 months. For now, this tool is mainly about "cloud data backup" and "syncing between own devices".

Looking forward to some feedback ;)

Locus Map (4+) / Locus Map 4, discussion
« on: December 06, 2019, 14:57:45 »
Base topic to discuss slowly coming Locus Map 4 version.

Why?
We wrote about Locus Map 4 here: https://www.locusmap.eu/locus-map-lets-talk-future/

When?
We planned this already a few months ago. Then we rather decided to do it more carefully, so next more realistic date is in the middle of 2020.

Anything change to me?
Locus Map Free > will be changed to Locus Map and actively developed. Changes in this topic will be included only in this version.
Locus Map Pro > will be changed to Locus Classic and will be in permanent maintenance mode. What it means? Still updated mostly every month with fixes and minor improvements to keep it fully working & stable. Ideal for users who like current solution and don't like changes or planned subscription model. I believe, more than fair offer ;).

How to help?
Currently best to watch this topic and help with some major decisions. Alpha version for field testing will come soon.

Latest version for download.

Locus Map (4+) / Locus Map vs Locus Classic ... what's next?
« on: April 10, 2019, 08:18:06 »
Hi guys,
maybe two, maybe even more years before, we started to feel a small financial push.
New people in the team (five now), increased pricing of used services (like GraphHopper, where we are currently already beyond their max. paid tariff, AppEngine, hosting servers and mailing and other servers).
On the second side, quite similar or just slowly growing income from one-time payments and little grow from income in Locus Store (which is quite low in the end because of small provisions we have from sales). Very increasing support on help desk from more than 600k active users from all 10 years when Locus Map is on Google Play (close to need for a special person who will take care just support), etc.

So maybe a year ago we decided we have to change this. And solution we decided for is well described by Michal in his new blog post.
Maybe not all is clear from this blog post, also not all is set and we have many open questions. I do not want to come one day with "ready solution", so rather we published this information a few months before it begins, to have some time to discuss it with users.

I saw already created German topic here on forum regards this topic, but I think it will be fair to discuss it directly with me. So feel free to ask, suggest, discuss etc. I'm open to any changes if they will be doable and make sense, as usual.
