TrafficCamNZ – News 27 May 2010

Posted by David Wilson in iPhone.

TrafficCamNZ has had some more enhancements and fixes over the last few days. Some new staff for the iPad, and some important bug fixes to address some crashes. The fix list is below. I discovered a critical bug the other night when I was myself trying to add a new camera and edit its details. Woops, crashed the app. The good news here was that it was reproduceable which allowed me to fix the error (and hopefully not break anything else in the process). I’ve also reviewed some of the crash logs from you care of Apple and I believe I’ve addressed a couple more of the more common crashes.

Here’s the fix list!

1.5.5 Added iPad specific single image screen from tab bar. Select your image from the popover menu. Bring up the menu by clickling on the camera icon in the top left of the screen.
1.5.5 Internal improvements for image handling
1.5.5 Display enhancements to the preferences screen, HUD now rotates with device rotation
1.5.5 All Images tab will indicate inprogress activity while images are being retrieved
1.5.5 Fixed an issue that would cause a crash when editing/saving camera details
1.5.6 Fixed an issue were reporting a location services failure would cause the application to crash
1.5.6 Fixed a crash with predictive mode – issue was related to calculating distances between GPS samples and maintaining compatability with older iPhone OS

I’m currently testing and will work through a submission to the AppStore for approval.

TrafficCamNZ and the iPad 1 May 2010

Posted by David Wilson in iPhone.

Last night I got my first opportunity to get my hands on an iPad (I had to return it). I haven’t run out to get one yet as: A. I’m in New Zealand, not the US
B. I want to get one with 3G

So for the first time I got to run TrafficCamNZ on the iPad face-to-face as it were. It was an interesting experience. I discovered a number of things that were not right, specifically things like the preferences screen, the individual camera screen, and the all images tab were showing the iPhone version of the screen and not the iPad version. That’s not how it looked in the simulator. So used the opportunity to get that right. I’ll make a update submission to the App Store soon.
