Pace Converter 2.0 Released

Pace Converter 2.0 is now available from the Google Play Store and Amazon App Store.

This release focuses on allow multiple groups of speed/time/distance to be entered and saved. The groups can be marked as actual results or as goals and are grouped as such.

There are also a lot of behind the scenes changes that are only interesting to me.

Here's what's new and wonderful in this release

  • Feature: multiple data groups (goals and actual results) can now be entered
  • Internal: Increased minimum supported version to Android 3.1
  • UI: added 'Tell a friend' menu option, for spamming.
  • UI: added annoying prompt asking to rate the app after 3 days/7 uses.
  • UI: added ShowcaseView to allow a better introduction to the app
  • UI: switched to sliding tabs (looks shinier)
  • Internal: code changes (use EventBus library, data stored in a database)

I lied in the last update about dropping support for Android 3, but I did drop 3.0 and made 3.1 the minimum. Someday soon I will drop Android 3, as soon as work up the energy to add a feature that is too difficult to backport.

Pace Converter 1.4 Released

Pace Converter 1.4 is now available from the Google Play Store and Amazon App Store.

The 1.2 release had a fairly nasty bug resulting from overly aggressive packaging, so I rushed out a 1.3 release the next day and then a 1.4 release a day after that because I did not like the layout on smaller phone screens.

Here's what's new and wonderful in this release

  • Added calculation of race split times and paces
  • Added alternative race prediction formula
  • Threshold and steady training paces added
  • Training paces now sorted from fastest to slowest
  • Sharing is now done using an HTML attachment
  • UI cleanup and the usual bug fixes

Based on the usage I've seen so far, I don't think I will be supporting Android 3.x much longer. That appears to be just 4% of the total installs and is much more than 4% of the total work to support. Before I drop support for it I will fork off a version of Pace Converter and upload that as a separate app so that it remains available. I doubt there would be any updates for pre-4.0 Android versions after that however.

Pace Converter in the Amazon App Store

Pace Converter 1.2 is now available from the Amazon App Store.

Since I'm giving this app away, I decided to try out the Amazon app store and see how easy it was to give away there. I've uploaded version 1.2 (current as of this post) will upload new versions as they become available.

For anyone else interested in trying this, the process was relatively painless, though having to click through US tax forms for a free app with no adds was a little off-putting.

Exiter Apps Website Available

Since there is now actually an app available in the Play Store, I decided that it would be a good idea to have a website backing the app. This is that site. There are many like it, this one is mine.
