uAlertMe v1.2 Submitted to the app store
It’s done. I’ve just finished updating the webpages for uAlertMe, having submitted v1.2 to Apple tonight.
v1.2 brings with it a number of corrections that should address some stability issues that people may have been experiencing, especially on older versions of iOS, or on devices with large videos in their camera roll.
v1.2 also adds two new features:
- When a location is sent to uAlertMe, it is now kept as part of a history, unless it is the same as a previous location. This way, you can see a history in the map view, of where your Macbook has reported it’s alarm going off. As a part of this, the annotations that popup when you tap a pin, now sport a button (right arrow) that allows you to navigate through the history, and an iAlertU icon that when tapped will retrieve the photo taken by your Macbook when the location was reported.
These pins may be deleted from the options screen if you desire.
- Some people reported that it’s too hard to configure. As a step to help out with this, I’ve added a browse button next to the hostname field. Tapping this will cause uAlertMe to scan the local network for any Macbooks running iAlertU that have their internal server running, and configured to use Bonjour.
Any Macbooks found will be listed in a picker for you to choose from. If there’s only one, then it will automatically be put into the hostname field for you.
I hope that this version of uAlertMe proves to be more stable for those of you having had problems.
If you like uAlertMe, please review it in the app store. If you have problems, please, before you make a negative review online, contact me and I’ll try to help. As some people know by now, I’m very responsive to help requestes.
