But that leaves us two questions:
- How to get customers from the southern hemisphere, and
- How to make a night simulation that allows us to sleep longer even if the sun is rising 😉
A customer complained about an alarm screen that stayed black, although the backlight of the display did light up. No picture, no color gradient. The Log was perfectly OK. I was not able to pin the problem.
He really invested a lot of his time to find the bug – and here is one of the fixes of 1.8.9, after he found a way to reproduce the problem.
Thank you very much! 😉
The permission model of the current Android version is more challenging than expected:
This app has improved error handling, and I hope to reduce the number of problems (feedback) with non-given permissions for
I thought I made enough checks in the main and the settings screen, but no problem to add some more for safety.
Well, the permission model of Android M is something to get used to, and I failed. So this version has several fixes due to this change in Android. See Version History.
The user-defined color curve for Hue helps using “old” and “new” strips, as the old ones – they are incapable of dimming very low – can be forced to switch on later. In addition, it allows nicer colors if you like. They are not easy to define, as I interpolate H and S values of the HSL color model in a linear way. But there are test buttons everywhere.
sorry, screenshots in German… This is what will come next:
The multiple Hue configurations are delayed – the customer asking for them did choose not to use the app any more, so there’s no urgent need. It’s nearly finished though. The rest is finished. I guess I will release the 1.8.4 this weekend.
Well, finishing is just before starting… while I thought the Hue subject would be closed, customer requests and my own experiences causing me to make some additions:
a friend of mine builds and experiments with different kinds of catamarans. He developed a special kind of sports cat, concerning creation as well as sailing characteristics… But read yourself:
You’ll notice the commitment and competence. He has just the same philosophy as mine: an outstanding product can only be the result of fun and engangement.
