TimeTune 4.11 brings with it an important requested feature, along with several improvements and Android requirements.
Let’s see the changes in detail:
ADVANCE/DELAY A GROUP OF BLOCKS
As plans may change during the day, many users requested an option to advance or delay a group of blocks in their schedule ⌛
While it was already possible to click on the times on the left for quick adjustments, there was no way to change a group of blocks in a single move.
Until now 😀
Now you can use double-click to select a group of blocks and advance or delay them with two new contextual actions on the top bar:
These new actions produce the same result as clicking on the times on the left, but for a group of blocks ✨
Keep in mind that the allowed range for advances or delays gets delimited by the anterior and posterior blocks, respectively.
PURCHASE SCREEN CHANGES
If you remember, last June we made the final switch to subscriptions for TimeTune Premium. We expect that this change will gradually bring more financial margin to the project, allowing us to grow more.
Regarding subscriptions, Google has strict requirements for the way apps sell and explain their subscriptions. The goal is to make the subscription terms totally clear to users who are considering a purchase.
That’s why we added a new explanatory text to the purchase screen and a new design for the purchase buttons:
Although nobody complained about the old purchase screen being unclear, this change allows us to meet all the policy requirements from Google 🤓
FULL ADAPTATION TO ANDROID 14
TimeTune 4.11 is fully adapted to Android 14 🥳
With each new Android version, Google puts new safeguards in place to prevent apps from abusing permissions or performing unauthorized actions.
That usually translates to several (and sometimes important) internal changes to adapt each project to the new requirements and standards. Otherwise, apps might break or behave erratically in new Android versions.
Now the work is done and TimeTune is ready to sail into Android 14 ⛵
SOCIAL MEDIA BUTTONS IN SETTINGS
In the last release, we restructured the settings screen to put some settings into new sub-sections.
Now that this screen is a bit less crowded, we can test new approaches to make specific actions easier to find 🔎
In this release for example, we added some buttons at the bottom for our social media channels:
Depending on how those buttons work, we can always keep them, change them or remove them.
In case you didn’t know it, we have a new app! 🙀
The name of the new app is Kiteki. It uses gamification features to motivate you to perform tasks and routines in a more efficient way 💪
As TimeTune has a respectable user base, we wanted to let everybody know about the new app, but in a non-intrusive way.
So instead of interrupting the user workflow, we added an information icon to the top bar. The announcement for Kiteki only appears when clicking that icon:
When you click on ‘Take a look’, the information icon will not appear anymore ✨
Kiteki will allow us to try playful features that wouldn’t fit into TimeTune. But if there’s something that really works in Kiteki, we can always adapt it for TimeTune.
You can get Kiteki now on Google Play.
As always, the new version includes other internal and technical changes:
- Library updates
- The app now targets api 34
- Duration picker modified to show a title at the top
- Duration picker can now limit the allowed duration
- Modifications to avoid undesired crashes
- Improvements to the internal billing workflow
We hope you like the new changes 🥰
Stay tuned for more!
