Updates concerning what to expect from version 1.3.0 are included below.
Hello, Our coders are all coffeed up and working on a series of updates (and we started roasting our own coffee beans, so they are REALLY coffeed up!). The next release will be version 1.3.0. As always, this update will be free to all owners of TimeLogger. Our preliminary plans are to implement the following:
Fix the bug that affects people who have entered time and switch to/from 12/24 hour time format. UPDATE: This appears to have been fixed with iPhone OS version 3.0, although things still go wonky if you change your region format. This should be something that a normal user would never do, and given the number of conversions for which we would have to account, this is not a concern that we feel is wirth tackling at this time.
Add week and day views (in addition to the current month view) and give users the ability to select which one they desire to see by default. This will make viewing time data much more efficient since the current month view is about as optimized as the current iPhone/iPod platform will allow. UPDATE: This was completed, and the default has been set to Week View.
Give users a configuration option to disable the auto-correct feature for this application only. UPDATE: This was completed, but it should be noted that autocorrection cannot be disabled for the Notes field due to a limitation in the iPhone OS.
Give users the ability to configure default categories, clients and jobs so that new timers may use those options by default. UPDATE: Complete.
Add a configuration option that allows users to set categories, clients and jobs when starting a timer rather than only offering those options when a timer is stopped. UPDATE: Complete, although this is an always-on behavior rather than a configuration option.
Add the ability to pause and resume timers. UPDATE: Not complete. This feature would have further delayed the current launch, but it is highly requested, and we are working on getting it into the next release.
Add the ability to restart a stopped timer. UPDATE: Not complete. This feature would have further delayed the current launch, but it is highly requested, and we are working on getting it into the next release.
Add the ability to duplicate all of the stored data (without the start time and end time) when starting a new timer to help reduce required input on frequently used input data. UPDATE: Not complete. This feature would have further delayed the current launch, but it is highly requested, and we are working on getting it into the next release.
Fix the incorrect sort order when timer data has been modified. UPDATE: Complete.
Add an indicator of the number of started timers on the home screen. UPDATE: Complete.
Additional items that we will review (these items are likely to be placed on hold pending the iPhone/iPod OS 3.0 release):
Loading indicators to show upload progress. UPDATE: Not complete, but also not commonly requested. We will work on this for s future release.
The ability to store voice recordings (notes) along with stored times. UPDATE: Not complete, but also not commonly requested. We will work on this for s future release.
Our super-secret new feature that has been locked down (by Apple) in iPhone/iPod OS 2. UPDATE: Unfortunately, Apple has still not opened up the feature that we need for application developers.
Please note that this is a preliminary list, and as such, we cannot guarantee that all of these items will appear in the next update. Anything that we miss on this update ought to make it into the next revision--which will, of course, be a free upgrade for everyone who purchases (or has purchased) TimeLogger. Thank you for your continued support!
UPDATE: Once again, we at costmosoft would like to thank everyone for their support of this application during our past difficult months while we have been working to get back on track. We're back now and working to prevent such events from keeping us away for too long again.
