Nothing major to report here, but one of our users managed to pick up a glitch in our system. It seems certain model phones didn’t capture data correctly and would only show the following on the app screen:
If you’ve got this problem please download the latest version (currently 0.94e) from the download page, as it has been resolved. For information, the app screen should have the following data, even if it is initially only zeroes:
Altitude: 0.0 meters
Bearing: 0.0 degrees
Speed: 0.0 km/h
Accuracy: 0.0 meters
Date: Mon Jul 11 12:56:10 Africa/Harare 2012
Thanks to Dawid for pointing out the problem and assisting us in testing the solution.
The other issue related to the GPS not correctly restarting after the battery died. This is an issue that has been bugging us since the beginning but I’m happy to report that our smart developers have come out on top. From now on we can stop concentrating on bug fixes and start to implement improvements and additional features to the web interface. If you have any suggestions as to what features you’d like to see in the BerryLocate app, please let us know in the comments section or by clicking on the Contact Us label above.
