It’s been a while since I’ve posted about an update, so we’ll backtrack a little here to get up to speed. Since the last post about version 1.4, I’ve added full support for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich tablets and phones, made the app entirely accessible for blind and visually impaired users, and fully tested (and fixed the rough edges) on a shiny new Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
I had the pleasure of working with J.J. Meddaugh of AndroidAccess.net to identify which parts of the app would need modified to make it fully accessible to blind users, and I’m happy to say that we were successful in making the app completely accessible for use with a screen reader. J.J. was kind enough to post an accessibility review that documents everything here:
I’m also excited to say that Android Tapp has also reviewed the app! Toni McQuilken reviewed the app as a “no frills” app that “works perfectly.” You can read the review here:
Finally, I’ve trimmed all rough edges for the app’s experience on the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus (running Android 4.0). The majority of things worked as expected due to my testing on the Android emulator, but there were a few surprise bugs that needed squashed. Regardless, the experience is better than ever on a Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
Thanks everyone! Enjoy the app and let me know if you have any suggestions. :)
This is a quick bugfix release that resolves a force close issue on Android Honeycomb 3.0 and 3.1 devices. My Honeycomb testing was performed on version 3.2, hence this particular issue wasn’t caught.
New features are on the way! Feel free to comment on the new features you want most…
The big new feature in version 1.3 is the ability to record in the background, both while other apps are open and while the screen is locked. Several other important bugfixes are also included, as documented in the Changelog in the app and in the “What’s New” section in the Android Market:
Once again, thanks everyone for your support. Please let me know if you run into any issues. This latest round of changes was a beast but I plan on putting out a new release with many more features very soon. :)
Version 1.2 is mainly a bugfix update, but it’s an important one. The new version fixes a glitch which sometimes closed out the current project when switching between applications (or bringing up the Share and Play with External Player screens), and fixes a rare force close upon stopping recording. Also added is a prompt to view the changelog upon application updates.
Once again, here’s a link to the app on the Android Market:
Thanks again, all. Hope everything is working great and I trust that you’ll let me know if you find any issues!
AudioLog HD’s first update just hit the Android Market, version 1.1. The big addition with this update is the ability to “star” or “favorite” projects and recordings. This helps to more easily keep track of important projects and recordings, or recordings that you need to come back to, for example. A few bug fixes made it into this release as well; all are listed under What’s New in the Android Market (and in the app under the changelog). Take a look at the latest version here:
Here are a couple of screenshots of the new star functionality in action:
Thanks to all who have jumped on the app already! Looking forward to adding many more features and users. :)
I just completed and published an Android application called AudioLog HD. The app records using the microphone on your Android device in high quality, up to CD-quality 16-bit 41000 Hz stereo audio. The app is available in the Android Market here:
See the listing on the market (link above) for full details on the features of the app.
I’m looking forward to any and all feedback on it, so please feel free to share your experiences here. Feature suggestions, issues, and both negative and positive feedback are all welcome. Thanks everyone! :)
