1.7.1: fix for Android 1.5&1.6 users

posted Jun 15, 2011, 1:55 PM by David Davagdroid

Bug fix:
- FC when editing the details of a car for Android 1.5&1.6 users
- Small improvement in global stats computation to better handle sale date of a car
- The sale date of car was not displayed once it was setup and going back to view the details of a car.

1.6.1: car sale price and car sale date

posted Mar 31, 2011, 7:56 AM by David Davagdroid

New features:

- Added 2 new fields to the car entity: sale price and sale date. You need to set the sale date so that the sale price is saved. With that feature I can now calculate the final cost of a car. Later on I will provide some car value estimation until it's sold.

Please check also the new facebook page for MyCars. It's quite new and still very basic info on it.

Bug fix:
- Problem with charts when the app theme and chart theme were different if running on Android <=2.1

1.6.0: new numerical keyboard, road type, driving style, etc...

posted Mar 22, 2011, 3:40 PM by David Davagdroid

New features:
    - Added a new numerical keyboard specific to my cars. The goal is to ease the editing of numbers and to overcome a problem I had with some phones like Sony-Ericsson. Please let me know what you think about it.
    - Added some fields to refuel (driving style/road type/use AC/use trailer/avg speed). Some can be set on the car itself to act as default. Later on I will provide charts based on that data
    - Improve performance of first screen load. Useful for high volumes of data.
    - Added new date format patterns (with / as separator)
    - In global stats screen some entries are now hidden if they are empty in order to make the screen more readable.
    - Added more bills stats (
    - Display cost in items list for refuels
    - Added a new advanced preference in order to cut X last digits for a new refuel in odometer mode
. For instance you could set X=3 so that instead of having 154678 miles you would have 154. Then you would only need to enter the last 3 digits.

Bug fix:
    - Fix: wrong main app theme
    - Fix: UK locale mistakes + AUD Australian currency code. Let me know if you see more UK mistakes.
    - Fix: date picker in landscape mode was not showing properly
    - Fix: chart export as image didn't work since 1.5.1
    - Fix: service and bill categories sorted by name        
    - Fix: fuel efficiency shows 0 as first entry when car tank init state was not full
    - Fix: sort of reminders is now always by date. It had some problems with multiple cars

1.5.3: mainly bug fixes for android 1.5 + refuel edit

posted Feb 8, 2011, 2:06 PM by David Davagdroid

Please note that this release includes features of 1.5.2 that I didn't released.

New features:

    - Added car filter for reminders. That way you can only select reminders by car. I just noticed however that the sorting by date doesn't always work.... I will fix it for next release :-(
    - Added icons in chart lists
. It's just nicer now.
    - Consistent charts navigation: now all arrows are on the top right of the chart screens. I will probably add in one of the next releases the ability to slide from one chart to next/previous one.

Bug fix:
    - FC on Android 1.5 when displaying the charts
    - FC when changing the orientation of the screen during a refuel and then entering either fuel quantity, price or cost
