LapTimer v24 available for iOS (Beta)

Post by Harry » Wed Jul 15, 2020 12:12 pm

Dear friends of LapTimer!

We will start LapTimer v24 beta testing shortly. :geek:

Applications for participation are triggered from within LapTimer.

Please follow these steps:
  1. Start LapTimer on your smartphone
  2. Follow Administration ‣ Add-ons
  3. In case you do not see "LapTimer v24 Beta" in the top of the list, press "Refresh"
  4. Select "LapTimer v24 Beta" and "Request"
  5. Fill in all sections marked using ALL UPPER CASE and send the mail to me
In case the application is incomplete, I will come back. Otherwise please wait for instructions to download the beta app. I plan to have a first version available as soon as possible. Please do not poll for the precise date of availability, but it should be within a few days. ;-)

Before applying, please make sure:
  • You love beta testing and early access programs!
  • Your are willing to work with incomplete and not super stable software.
  • While creating an external backup of your v23 data is always a good idea (Databases ‣ Backup), both v23 and v24 use the same database scheme. This means you will be able to return to the v23 production version if necessary.
And here is the list of changes in LapTimer v24:
  • Modernized launch screen for late iOS versions
  • Modernized media handling and access to videos in particular
  • Modernized various user interface areas for late iOS versions
  • Reworked all logging format importers (VBO, GPX, NMEA), added support for as-is imports (VBO, NMEA)
  • Refactor all dialogs, fixed dead locks
  • Fixed VEEPEAK OBD adapter recognition
  • Fixed a bug in track set conflict resolving
  • Renamed Camera Roll to Photos
  • Allow manual track selection in Status if either Manual Timing is enabled or Performance View is selected
  • Fast speed range selection for Performance View
  • Fixed delta display of temperatures when using Fahrenheit
  • Fixed a crash when returning from Video Preview
  • Added setting for HERO8 cams
  • Massive refactoring in several areas
Changes in LapTimer v24 are massive but often not visible directly. Apple fosters continuous modernization of apps to make new iOS version features and fixes available for a large portion of users. We have updated more than 6 major iOS libraries to new versions in v24. In addition, we have reworked the code to get 1st class support for macOS devices in the near future.

Thanks for supporting us in polishing this release! :-)

  • Fixed crash when restoring a database
  • Removed remaining UIAlertView references
  • Fixed a crash when playing a corrupted / incompatible video

Dear testers,

I plan to close the beta soon and release v24 to production.
In case you have any feedback to give, please do so now. Either here on this thread or by mail Harry@gps-laptimer.de

Thank you!
