There is another update of Periodical:
- Added Spanish translation (thanks to Laura Arjona Reina).
- Extended the color scheme to display days before the first cycle and after the last calculated cycle.
- Code cleanup and optimization.
- Target platform changed to SDK version 20 (Android 4.4).
Again some enhancements in Periodical:
- Italian translation (thanks to Valerio Bozzola)
- Additional preference for start of the week (sunday or monday)
Unfortunately the update of Periodical yesterday still had a bug under Android 2 which caused a crash when you try to open the newly introduced preferences. Therefore there is now again a new version.
Since some users may have problems updating the app using the Google Play Store, you may need to remove the old version first. You can also download the APK on the project page or at F-Droid. Important: Do a backup using the menu command in the app before removing the old version!
After a longer break there is now a new version of Periodical.
The source of my Android app “Periodical” could be found on my own SVN server in the past. Now I have moved the repository to Github: https://github.com/arnowelzel/periodical.
Thanks to the very nice tool svn2git I could also keep the history and all tags of my former SVN repository :-).
Recently Samsung decided to introduce regional SIM locks for the Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S4 mini and Galaxy Note 3. This means you can only use the devices with a SIM card of the region where it was sold. For example: if you purchase a device in Europe you can not use it with a prepaid SIM card outside Europe. It is also not possible any longer to use imported devices in Europe.
When you turn off the device without setting the volume to “silent” it will play a short melody together with the Samsung boot animation when turning it on again (on some other devices this will occur always independent of any volume setting).
If the device is rooted you can just rename the relevant OGG file to disable this.
Most Apps which include audio playback – mainly audio- and videoplayers but also navigation systems with speech output and games – request READ_PHONE_STATE in their manifest to get notified about incoming calls in the
Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini provides a mechanical home key. This key also wakes the device up when it is in standby mode, identical to the power key. Sometimes you may not want this feature.
A new version of Periodical is available with the following changes:
- French translation updated (thanks Sébastien!)
- Added a separate layout for landscape view
- Increased resolution of the overlay icons for MDPI devices
The planned features for the future versions include the possibility to record additional details for each day (temperature, state of the cervical mucus etc.) and an improved calendar view with multi colored tiles.
