Live tracking improvements
« on: December 09, 2012, 03:03:49 »
When exiting the application, if live tracking is on, Locus goes straight to the background. I'd much rather see it giving the usual pop-up with minimizing and closing as possibilities. It's quite common to forget tracking on now and this consumes battery quite a bit.

Other thing about live tracking is that it's UI isn't that great, would be a lot easier to just push play directly on the first live tracking screen instead of having to go to the settings sub-menu. Maybe even add the possibility to do live tracking by default when starting? Of course this should be an option in each of the available trackers, so that not all of them go online by default.

Good points, especially the first one. I even can imagine that this would be useful for other functions running in background. Like navigation, parking service or track recording. Setting for pressing home button is Android standard - minimize the application.

Pressing the back button with no Locus background service brings simple dialog "Do you really want to exit? Cancel - Exit".
But for the other scenarios, there should be a choice to "Cancel - Minimize - Exit". Within that dialog, there has to be a list with all running functions.
"Cancel" and "Minimize" is clear again. But it's getting difficult with "Exit" when there is a running function. In case for Live Tracking it's easy, simply end Live Tracking. Ending Track Recording needs to popup the other dialog, where the users gets asked, how he likes his recorded track to be handled. And so on...

But I'm sure, Menion figures this out... :D

It actually works like that currently, at least for navigation and some other functions ;)
