Thanks for the report. I am fixing this now.
Damn...Sorry...

Edit: just pushed version .84 (RC 4). Should be available to you soon. Sorry again, Incarna got me all excited...
Edit: ...and .85 to fix an issue for older Android versions.

Hey,

Downloaded the app onto my Samsung Galexy S (andrioid 2.1)

Really nice looking, but found a couple of bugs/ideas:

1) I have 2 accounts from Aura, both APIs where detected and it got Poilt names for both but only got training, isk, current SP from 1 set of characters. The other just has name and nothing else.

2) All of my characters (from both APIs) are displayed as having no known skills (except the one currently in training) and 0 SP.

3) I there a wat of filtering known skills/avaible skills/all skills I havnt seen?

4) Seeing Certificates would be nice

5) IS there a way of seeing how long it will be on the prequiqusites for a skills, not just the skills needed.

6) Do you plan on moving skills like 'DED connections' to the 'Fake Skills' bit of the libary.


Hm... That was longer than I thought.

Real nice app though, I saw somewhere you said about a widget Id love that also. Once this gets a skill planner and the bug i said about our gone I see no need for aura to be honest..

Yes, it's a glitch in the small devices version. A Pilot reload or leaving/re-opening Evanova should show everyone. You can also select that pilot and reload it from the pilot view screen. That should fix it. This bug is my first priority today.

Gasp! Really? It maybe related to the same aforementioned bug. I will look into this.

Originally by: Paukinra

Yes, click the Character Skill screen title (where the little book icon is displayed. It should switch known/available/all skills, and the icon should change accordingly.

Not yet. I plan to extends that view to the full requisites tree but still need to think of a nice way to display them.

Originally by: Paukinra

In theory, all skills marked as 'not published' from the API shouldn't show. If those skills are still marked as 'published', it'll have to be a manual job rather than an update through the API. The 'Fake Skills' group still shows empty. It is a minor bug I'll fix.

Much appreciated. Thanks for taking time to write this.
I definitely would love a widget. It's probably going to be higher priority than a Skill Planner as it's a new area of Android I want to explore.

love the app :P

wildfire is a small screen so at some info screen come short but clicking on them zooms them in so its not a big issue(next phone will be bigger :D )

dunno if its there but i cant see a skill queue..if its not there it would be nice to be able to see what one has set as queue.

and another think that would be nice is a notification when a account is about to expire(evemon reports it so im sure its in the API.)

There is! It is just under the Character Info part, and that is probably why you don't see it :(
Do the menu buttons show on your device? (Assets, Orders, etc.).

Good idea. That should be easy to add if the API has this field. I'll write that down on my TODO list.

Edit: the usual typo by lack of proof reading.

yes i see the buttons for skills, assets,orders,wallet

its just the screen for currently training you see the sills thats training and the training bar, below that its the same training time but in much bigger letters that i can only see half of it.. but thats likely due to the wildfire smaller screen when i click on it i see the full size of it and looks just fine.

Little bumpage for yet another update (0.86, grab it on the Android Market).

* Fixed Pilot list update bug.
* You can now see when your account expires on the accounts list.
* Added scrolling on the main Pilot view (small screens) in the hope people with very small screens can see the whole thing.
* Small cosmetics changes.
* Added code for future in-game mail API *wink wink*.

A little compilation of F.A.Q from discussion with fellow pilots who installed Evanova in their cockpit.


  • Character stats are empty (0 ISK, etc.) but my API keys are fine.

    - If the "Reload pilots" menu button on the pilot list screen doesn't seem to do anything (you have to wait a little, and this can take a while on 3G), try re-installing the app from the market to make sure you have the latest version and data.


  • Viewing pilot attributes (small devices):

    - When on the main pilot view (the one with the menu buttons), click/press the panel on top of the one showing your current training. It should open a new screen with your attributes and implants.

  • Many other panels are clickable - keep on clickin'!

    - The corporation icon on the main pilot view leads you to the corporation screen right away.

    - The pilot's skill list title (where the book icon is) allows you to switch from known to trainable to unknown skills.

  • With notifications what is the difference between one for pilot and one for all. Also what does it notify me about?

    - Notifications pop up when a training queue is about to complete(less than 24h).
    - "One for all" will produce one notification regardless of how many queues are expiring.
    - "One per pilot" will produce a notification for each expiring queue.

    Note that the notification system doesn't work as I would like and is getting a major overhaul in the next version.


Thanks for all the support and help from everyone. Make sure to keep up with the latest news from Evanova on the Evanova blog.

Noted ;-)
I must admit to a tendency at borderizing everything. But I am not a UI guru and I am not sure how to "categorize" things differently. I'll play around various ideas after the next release.
All suggestions welcomed!

I have a colleague who installed it on the same tablet without problem. We will do another test tonight.

Is it the Android market that tells you the app is not compatible? There is no such limitation in the code (on purpose).

Yes, the _german_ Android market tells me the app is not compatible. You can contact me via audax_rarnikwar@eve-mail.net (jabber) for debugging if you like :)

€dit:
I can't find it in the market, but when I try the link from Appbrain, the market app opens Evanova but then tells me the app is not compatible with my device.

Good work :)

Works fine on a Samsung Galaxy II.

Couple of issues..

1) On screens with icons at the bottom, like gallery or corporation, the icons at the bottom overlap.

2) When you remove characters, their corp icons are still listed in the "Corporations" screen.

3) No screen rotation, vertical only (by design?)

4) Character potraits in the pilots list screen could be higher res. Same for all images really on my (pretty large screen) phone.

5) Phone "Settings" button does not work in the currently training skill page . Doesnt really matter but not sure if it should or not.

Keep up the good work! And a widget would be the icing...

There are definitely troubles with Evanova and 2.1. Some people reported no skills shown, or troubles with the market. After some investigations, I have found a few things:

* There is definitely a bug with Android 2.1 and the components used on the Skill screen. I am trying to fix this with a workaround that I have yet to check on other versions.

* The APK is "protected" on the market. This means people with rooted devices, devices that normally don't have access to the Android Market and such cannot see the application. I would suspect something similar is the cause for those who have a half application downloaded. I intend to "unprotect" the APK, so it can be distributed more widely, but this will have to be with the next version after I work out all the details (an obscure build problem...).

Thanks for the feedback.

Yes, portraits do overlap, and I am not sure if this component ("Gallery") can behave differently. I never considered it annoying, but it's now on my list.

Originally by: skyk

I have mixed feelings about this. Multiple pilots can be in the same Corp, so you would need to delete all those pilots. But then, on the other hand, you may want to keep the Corp, or show a Corp none of your pilots are in (with limited info). I am not sure what to do with this and inputs would be greatly appreciated.

Originally by: skyk

3) No screen rotation, vertical only (by design?)


It is half by design, and half by necessity. On small devices, a landscape view doesn't really provide a better view on most screens (that's the design part).
Now, coding for both takes a lot of time. So I decided to disable the whole thing on small devices until I have more time to make something that I consider good enough for consumption.

Originally by: skyk

That is another "Man, I so don't have time to look at those things!". Currently the background is the 512x512 version of pictures, while the rest is 64x64.

The reason is: I didn't had time to work out the details of obsfuscating the code to avoid easy reverse engineering of parts I don't want people to get at. This app is a LOT of work (most evenings for roughly half a year) and your API keys are stored in there. I don't want a rogue app written that *could* steal any of the data, and I don't want people cloning my application easily without my approval. Until I know exactly how to block things for certain, less information is better.

Now the good news is: I've worked out those details, and the next release will NOT be protected on the market (yet obfuscated) and the APK should be available for downloads.

Talking about the "next update", I might update the application before enabling the in-game mail feature as it has lots of bug fixes but the mail is not in the shape I want it to be. Lack of time will tell.

Evanova, awesome app I love the look and feel of it more than Aura.

So far my only complaint is it forces server status updates and char sheet updates on disconnection and reconnection to the mobile network I.E. spotty network connection in the woods. I monitor my data usage more than what is healthy and so far it seems the app is a hog. Maybe you can tune down the force update on reconnect maybe time stamp updates instead? Like once an hour or on next connect after said hour? Maybe a setting to let me the user decide.

Love to see where your app goes, looking forward to updates and additions! Very Happy

I was actually thinking just that yesterday.
I will probably limit the server status updates to when the application starts and also limit requests with an arbitrary cache time. However I am surprised that the app uses the network too much. Server status updates are basically the only automatic updates so far, unless you have an invalid API key lying around (status updates are also very small in size).

I was going to implement an automatic pilot update, but in light of your feedback, I am not sure it is the best route to go. At the moment, pilot updates need a manual trigger but that seemed to cause some confusion to some users. I could also have a settings option for that, but I don't want an asplosion of options.
What do you think?

I would suggest an automatic update pilots frequency option, from 'off' (manual update), to maybe 24H?

something like off, 6, 12, 24 hours would be fine for me.

For the server status, app startup is fine, and maybe manual + hourly, but not as important.

Oh one other feature that would be great would be the ability to expand ships in the assets, split by slots, cargo hold, drone bay etc :)

Keep up the good work!

It did not use a ton of data just some people in the states have really ****ty data plans... namely AT&T customers and have to pay for data after 500mb a month so less data is good data!


Manual should always be an option. Then settings for Like Skyk said would be awesome!

Not sure if you can do it but sell orders would be nice, and a delete corperation option, as I have 9 characters on 3 accounts but only care to see corps for 3 of them.
