Quote from: "berkley"Hi, just playing around with version 0.9.3.3 and had some suggestions. So I came here to post them. Then I saw that you already included them in version 0.9.3.4 ... lolLooks like you're developping way too fast. There's no time for testing!!! :mrgreen: Just a few questions for the tracks menu in settings: (1) "Interval (meters)" means that (if for example is set to "1 meter") the app only writes points if you move more than 1 meter? (2) "Interval (seconds)" means taht (if for example is set to "1 second") the app only writes points every 1 second?(3) How can I set these values to lower than 1? Like 0,2 meter and 0,05 seconds? (4) Is the value in "Track width" in pixels or meter? I am using a 10hz bluetooth gps receiver. It works awesome!!! The app draws very exact tracks. Even if the phone is in standby! There's just a small problem. The accuracy shown in the gps menu isn't exact enough. I guess that the accuracy is about 0,3 meters. But the info shows just 1 meter. Can you include an exacter accurancy? Like 0,3 meters? What about a kind of digital zoom? The closest zoom to ground shows about 200 meters in the screen. It would be great if you could just zoom in digitally. Know what I mean? Edit: Forget about that. Just figured it out... And if you are thinking about a paid version you should include some options for multilanguage... Greetz from sunny Bavaria, berkleyP.S. Do you know that you are creating a MONSTER??? 8-)Edit: I forgot to write something about the file systems... I guess it would be usefull if every user can choose the destination the tracks are stored. Just my opinion. If you don't want the users to choose, I'd suggest the external sd as standard storage. As file formats I suggest gpx and kml. Everybody can handle them.
Quote from: "berkley"Hey, you just released another 2 versions... Please come down to earth. I have to work I understand your worries about the app getting too complex for basic users. That's just one reason, why I don't use Orux. I think that you are on a point of developping where you don't know which way to develop. It's your app and it's great. I never had problems with it using the Galaxy S and I already posted in the market some days ago. Just did an update with the devices name. To come back to the app and your development. Everybody uses apps for different kind of use. For example my to do list is a shopping list app. Locus has the potential to serve people for different kind of convenience. Your just a few steps away from road navigation. Your just a few steps away from a route tracker/server for sparetime activities. And so on. That's what I meant with "Monster". As being a farmer I'm gonna use Locus as a kind of guidance system. Have a look here, just to have a clue what I mean: //http://www.trimble.com/agriculture/guidance.aspx. There's just a few things missing (exept the guidance). - display the recorded track width in meters, according to the machine I work with. - display the track, that you already have recorded in the same session, in another colour. Like don't work at the same place twice. - having a kind of online database (google docs?) to organize what work you are currently are doing and what you still have to. - loading "MyMaps" from Google server and being able to edit the informations in there with just clicking on the fields as I don't have tracks in MyMaps, just Polygons. But as I already said. It's your app. And only you decide in which way you develop it. At the moment I'm very happy with the development, so I'm gladly testing your beta versions and giving you feedback. Just a word about accuracy. As you read above I have to have a very good accuracy. The accuracy shown in Locus is 1 meter. Other apps are showing 2,2 meters (same conditions). So... I think it's still not too bad. If you want me to translate some text into German, I'm gonna to this. I also have basic knowledge of French. So I'll try this too. Just give me the english textfiles, I can't handle Czech!!! Bye for now, I'm having a look at 0.9.3.6 :mrgreen: berkleyEdit again, bad short time memory I think you better choose another app name. At least for Germany. Because the word "Locus" describes the place where you are doing your big business. So probably you just get some 1 star ratings in the market because someone is just looking for an app showing public toilets!
QuoteHow it's possible that GPS think, that you're in Prague? Someone wrote me similar issue as comment on market ... grr!
Quoteabout MyMaps ... thanks for your report. Please try it now ... you can now select type of map (public, unlisted), also all map should be clickable without problems.
Quotehow did you created this complex map with folders?? Seems that this map will be problem and I have no idea how to receive this data ...
QuoteAnd please, beware direct contact with me. After I read newest comment on market, I know new information about myself!
