Tune Announcer v3.6.0 Beta

Just pushed out a new version of Tune Announcer that has a UI refresh but also adds Exclusions.

One of our customers asked that we add the option to prevent toasting or announcing when playing podcasts. The only way we can do this is through exclusions. You specify something in the scrobble data (track, artist or album name) that matches the podcast information and then choose whether to prevent toasts and announce.

This is a pro-feature only.

Collection Apps

So here's the generic version.

We've realised that our current Storage and Freezer apps are overlooked by people wanting a 'Collections' app. They see the existing apps as being too specific and don't try them.

It's fundamentally identical to the others but in blue!

Collections Apps

We've been fairly busy over the last few weeks adding new features and tweaks to the apps. One of the things we've done is rework the authorisations of users.

Collections have always been sharable, so other people could see your collection. However, this gave the invitees full access to change or even delete your collection items.

With the latest changes though, invitees are now only given 'READ' access so they can see everything in the collection, but they can't change the collection at all. You can use the Manage Users screen change each users access to be WRITE or even ADMIN, as well as REMOVEing their access completely.

This has given us an idea for a new feature of Public Collections. If you have a collection that you think is worth sharing, you can make it public and other people can see it, without you needing to 'share' it with them.

Public Collections is in the beta version on the play store at the moment, and there's only one public collection which is our Beer Collection.

Bottoms up

Collection Example

The latest version of the Collections apps lets you create a demo collection that is a fully featured example of what you can do with the apps.

We've done this as we've noticed a few users seem to be stuck on what to do with the app once they've logged in, usually culminating in them uninstalling the app without really experiencing its potential. With the demo collection, then can browse around and try the apps without spending any time setting up new collections.

Furthermore, we've localised a select few parts of the app so that you get some initial instructions in your own language. We'd do more on localisation, but it's a significant effort and we'd rather spend that time building up the feature set of the application (in fairness, 80% of our current users are English speaking)

Custom Fields

The Collections apps (My Freezer and My Storage) now support the definition of custom fields in a collection. You can now:

* Create any number of custom fields with string, number and date types
* Populate these fields when you create an item
* Fields can be mandatory
* Fields can be shown in the card lists if required
* Fields and values are searchable
* Numbers can have ranges and are validated before saving an item
* User specified formatting of these fields so they appear as you want them to (coming soon)

This is currently in beta.

Storage and Freezer Apps

We been fairly busy adding features, fixing bugs and trying to improve usability of the apps.

One of the things we've recently added is tags with the ability to filter on tags when searching. We think this is a cool feature and enhances the apps immensely.

Tags are in beta at the moment, but we plan to release this very soon.
