Power Schedule 1.0.2

I just uploaded a fixed version – I got 2 crash reports from two users. It seems some Androids have different permission requirements – for example for setting the WiFi mode. So I had to add this one, and also the phone state permission. The 2nd one was my fault: it crashed when disabling all 4 schedule items (on, off, both for weekdays and weekends). Sorry for that 😐

So hit your update button in market and please allow the new permissions.

Power Schedule 1.0.1

I just updated Power Schedule to 1.0.1. The displayed schedule is now activated, when you open the “Phone & Bluetooth” and “Wireless” settings (this fixed a small bug for users seeing the times displayed, without any action being performed at the specified times). Check the app page for download details.

Android tutorial – display embedded HTML file in WebView

Working on Power Schedule, I wanted to make a short help file, with some formatting. It seems there were several ways of doing this, but I chose to include an embedded HTML file into my application. It seemed easier to just edit an HTML file in an editor.
So let’s get started…

Some things about Power Schedule

I’ve received a few questions from the users who installed PS.
First, why it can’t be installed on the SD card. Well, it can’t because it needs to be started by Android at startup. At that time, the SD card may not be available. Therefore, it won’t start.
Anyhow, the app is really small (it uses 100kb with its data, so I hope it’s not a big problem.
If I find a different way, I will for sure allow installing to SD.

By the way, you have any feature requests for future versions, just ask 🙂
