The last days we published Invitation Processor 1.3.2, which fixes the layout problems on smaller screens by introducing different layouts for smaller (phones) and larger screens (e.g. Nexus 4, Tablets).
Today we fixed permissions to grant access to device calendars on Android 2.x.x. There were some problems especially on Samsung devices before.
Thanks to all, who send us bug reports and recommendations!
Yesterday we released Invitation Processor Pro 1.3.0 with following new features:
- Accept or deny an invite
- Showing attendee and organizer information
- Define a custom alarm
- Some parser fixes
Today we made another few fixes with release 1.3.1:
- Layout changed for small screens
- Parser fixes
Comments, Bug reports and feature requests are still welcome!
In a few days we will publish an update of our App Invitation Processor Pro. Version 1.3.0 will fix some bugs (Thanks to all who sent their files) and introduce some features. These will only be available in the Pro version:
- Displaying attendee and organizer data
- Possibility to send replies to organizer e.g. accepting an invite (accept, deny, maybe)
- Defining a custom reminder
I recently switched to Ubuntu 12.10, which led to a broken Eclipse installation and so my Android Build Environment was gone. I used a self-installed Eclipse Juno at this point. But I thought I could use the Eclipse 3.8.0 that comes as Ubuntu 12.10 package.
This is done by the simple command
$ sudo apt-get install eclipse
Now the ADT plugin has to be installed:
- Start eclipse and select Help->Install new software… and add http://dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse/ to available software sites.
- Select the needed android adt plugins then
- Download Android SDK 21 at http://dl.google.com/android/android-sdk_r21-linux.tgz or a newer version
- Untar that SDK package, e.g. in your home as ~/android-sdk-linux
- After restart of Eclipse go to Window->Preferences into the Android section and set the SDK location to your untarred directory.
After that Eclipse complains, that it does not find the Android SDK Platform Tools. After another Eclipse restart a dialog is shown where the Android SDK Manager can be started to fix the problem.
All fine, but where is my heavily used Window-> Android SDK and AVD Manager? It seems to be gone with Eclipse 3.8.0 on Ubuntu 12.10. But then I have found that the Android SDK Manager is also accessible as standalone tool on the command line. So you do not need Eclipse for calling it:
The already known window opens where you can install and update all Android SDK items. Remember to restart your Eclipse workspace, when you made changes.
Invitation Processor Pro 1.2.0 should be available in Google Play now. This is a major bugfix release after several users reported non-working iCalendar files. Thanks to all of them.
Many bugs should have been fixed due to a rework of the iCalendar parser. Now it also should be more easy to report a non-working file by sending it to our support using a contact button within the app.
Apart from advanced compatibility to iCalendar files the following issues have been solved:
- contact button had no function in free version
- open files with a file manager like Astro got easier and more direct
An update of Invitation Processor Free including the bugfixes and the contact button is released as version 1.1.0.
New major bugfix release of Invitation Processor Pro is coming the next days.
Thanks to all the people who sent their ics files which caused parsing errors. It is always important to have a set of many files of different origins to test releases against.
The coming release is tested and packaged at the moment, an update of the free variant will also be released with just a short delay.
